 Kelly Plantation Golf Club -- Nestled along Choctawhatchee Bay, you’ll find Kelly Plantation Golf Club. This impressive championship 18-hole golf course, located in northwest Florida, was once a turpentine plantation located on a pristine piece of land which has remained undisturbed for centuries. The intrinsic beauty of this land has been fashioned into one of the most visually impressive and environmentally sensitive golf courses in northwest Floridawith miles of waterfront, intricate bayous and towering trees.

Windswept Dunes

 Windswept Dunes -- To create a one-of-a-kind golf course, designers must work to preserve as much of the natural vegetation and topography as possible.  Windswept Dunes designer and builder Doug O'Rourke has succeeded on all counts.  Featuring miles of spectacular white sand dunes (some as high as 20 feet!), large rolling fairways, artful bunkering and immaculate conditioning, this track frames itself in rare, unspoiled beauty. While the 750 acre setting is breathtaking, what makes Windswept Dunes truly remarkable is that there are no crowds, no hustle and bustle at all.  Here, off the beaten path, it is easy to be serene; it is natural to be happy. The spacious 18-hole is a demanding 7607 yards from the championship tees, but with five additional sets of tees, offers challenge and excitement for golfers of all abilities.

Baytowny Golf Club

Baytowne Golf Club --  After carving the masterpiece called The Links Course, Tom Jackson returned to Sandestin to develop the course we call Baytowne Golf Club. It gives guests the best of both worlds, with landing areas that invite guests to unleash the driver, and greens that reward a strategically placed approach shot. Tom Jackson created a heavily bunkered, pine tree-lined, 3300-yard front nine that runs along the Choctawhatchee Bay. The back nine gives you a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico while taking advantage of the land’s elevation changes to create some spectacular views. Tom Jackson calls every hole on Baytowne a favorite “because each one has a personality all its own.”
