Where2Golf says: 

The Links Course at Sandestin: Just east of Destin on Florida's Emerald Coast, the Sandestin Resort boasts four impressive championship golf courses - set apart from the other three in terms of look, feel and location, the relatively open Links course offers many fabulous views onto Choctawhatchee Bay - its is arguably the most forgiving layout when there's no wind; and definitely the fiercest when there is - the par-4 6th to the par-5 9th on the front-nine, and the closing stretch on the back-nine from the par-5 13th are as scenic as you'll find on the Florida panhandle - many of these holes hug the Bay's shoreline and bordering wetlands - the stunning par-4 14th includes a dramatic carry onto an island green, while the par-4 15th threads its way to the green with water on both sides - the par-3 16th requires yet another well judged iron-shot across water, and the closing par-4 18th comprises an island fairway and water-surrounded green - the bayside splendour of the par-5 9th (which might evoke thoughts of the last at Harbour Town, or even Pebble !) more than compensates for holes 2 through 5, the layout's least interesting stretch, which loops around a residential development and alongside the Emerald Coast Parkway (Hwy 98) - although not as impressively mounded or maintained as Sandestin's two standard-bearers (Burnt Pine and Raven), the Links course is all about having fun beside the Bay, with stunning views and great scenery to be enjoyed along the way.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted.
