Fabulous Over 50
winners for 2009
Relaxation and memorable moments full of excitement can all be experienced when you enter into the world of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Its Emerald Coast Parkway West location isn’t coincidental. The 2,400-acre premier resort, nestled between Pensacola and Panama City, offers up 30 village neighborhoods—with a variety of accommodations including condominiums, villas, townhomes and hotels.
This family-friendly environment invites guests to enjoy an array of amenities that include golf, pristine beaches, dinner cruises, restaurants, bicycle trails, spas and more. Sandestin packs all of these features into its little world in Northwest Florida, striving to deliver a colorful and flavorful vacation for everyone without leaving the resort. Sandestin is large enough to cater to social gatherings such as family reunions, intimate enough for a couples retreat and private enough for a getaway for one.
“Sandestin’s calling card is its sandy beaches,” says Andrew Metz, manager of marketing and public relations. “Our beaches are definitely our main attraction,” he says, noting that while golf is a major feature of Sandestin, beaches are why people come to Florida.
Zooming in on its name, Sandestin lives up to it by serving up four championship golf courses. It even keeps the beginners and mid-level golfers in mind, offering various types of instruction at the Hank Johnson School of Golf. For those who want to venture off of the golf course and take in a little tennis, your dreams can be realized on its 15 tennis courts.
