Where2Golf says: 

Baytowne Golf Club (at Sandestin): Just east of Destin on Florida's Emerald Coast, the Sandestin Resort boasts four impressive championship golf courses - the ever-popular Baytowne course combines a pleasant variety of golf holes and settings, and is perhaps an easier-going proposition than Sandestin's highly-rated Burnt Pine and Raven layouts - laid out on either side of a clubhouse that also serves the Raven course, Baytowne comprises two contrasting nine-hole loops - the front-nine heads north into a resort-style environment, bringing you close to the buzzing Village of Baytowne Wharfs - on the first ten holes (and later the 14th and 16th) you will frequently be challenged by the presence of water, with small lakes and ponds skirting several fairways and defending many greens - stylish bunkering also plays its part, especially around the greens and along some fairways - the back-nine takes you south, to within a few hundred yards of the Gulf of Mexico - holes 13, 14 and 15 form a testing loop on the other side of the Emerald Coast Parkway (Hwy 98) - the tight, villa and condo-lined par-4 13th and uphill par-5 15th are separated by the fabulous par-3 14th - here, under the gaze of towering condo blocks, a testing tee-shot is required to find the seriously water and bunker threatened green - Baytowne's continued popularity is assured, with more undulation than is found on most of the area's courses, several nicely elevated tees to play from, a forward set of Junior tees to encourage family play and the benefit of a significant renovation in the mid-2000s.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
