The Links Golf Club at Sandestin
Part of the award-winning chain of golf clubs in the Sandestin Resort, the Links Golf Club has been named one of the “Top Five Golf Courses in Northwest Florida” and one of the “Top 100 Courses in Florida” by Florida Golf News.
Developed by famed course architect Tom Jackson, the Links golf course features a challenging course adjacent to the Baytowne Marina and shores of the Choctawhatchee Bay. A stunning design, golfers will be kept on their toes as they following the course through pine forests, past lakes and marshes. The biggest challenges are the prevailing Gulf Coast winds and the water features found at 13 of the 18 holes. These are combated only by shot accuracy and proper club selection.

Course Description & Memorable Holes
The Links course plays from 4,897 to 6,710-yards with four sets of tees. The red tee reduces the yardage and intensity of the hazards enough to make the course playable for all levels.
Hole number seven will test your club selection and accuracy. It's only a par four, 371 yards, but packs quite a wallop. Once you get to the fairway, expect a dogleg to the left, bordered by a lake on the left and bunkers and hills to the right. Just when you're about 90 yards to the green and start to relax, expect to shoot over that lake to get to the hole. At the end, your adrenalin will be pumping and you'll get a do-over on the eighth hole, while you're faced with similar challenges.
The Links’ 9th hole is reminiscent of the 18th at Pebble Beach, as it runs along Choctawhatchee Bay and plays to a 536 yard, par 5.
