That’s what has attracted high-profile events and competitions including the Champions Tour, NCAA National Championships. But they all share the incredible natural beauty of Sandestin’s 72 holes spanning from the beach to the bay and the dedication of our PGA professionals and staff.

We recently traveled to Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort with our one year old daughter and had a wonderful vacation. The Sandestin complex is wonderful and perfect for vacationing with small children. We arrrived on Sunday afternoon and check-in was a breeze. We loved the convenience of being ableto walk to Baytown Wharf. Overall, our trip was perfect and we will be back! We had a wonderful time.
