As part of the 10-year, multi-phase, $400 million master redevelopment plan that began in 1998 and will be completed this year, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has improved its vacation offerings. A new PGA Champions Tour event, The Boeing Championship at Sandestin and the renovation of the Baytowne Golf Club course, will help to enhance the vacation experience for golfers and golfloving families at Sandestin. New merchants and restaurants, a new beachside condominium, the renovation of the Bayside Inn, and two new Marriottbranded properties will also be added to Sandestin?s extensive vacation offerings. This year, Sandestin will host a PGA Champions Tour event, The Boeing Championship at Sandestin. This official $1.6 million Champions Tour event, formerly known as the Blue Angels Classic, will be played May 8 through 14, at the Raven Golf Club at Sandestin. Known as the most popular course at Sandestin for many years, Baytowne Golf Club brings a fresh face to its familiar layout. Extensively renovated in the summer of 2005 by original course architect Tom Jackson, this course is even more exciting. The addition of a fifth set of junior tee boxes, specifically designed to promote the game for children under 12, gives golf-loving families the chance to enjoy the game together at Baytowne Golf Club, one of four championship golf courses located at Sandestin. Several new shops and restaurants have opened at The Village of Baytowne Wharf: ? Graffiti?s & The Funky Blues Shack ? Chuck and Carmen Stiles, owners of Graffiti?s in Destin and Cafe Tango in Blue Mountain Beach, will bring their Graffiti?s restaurant and live blues club venue to Baytowne. Dinner will be served nightly along with a limited late-night menu to accompany their entertainment. ? Mangos Paradise Grille ? Keith and Shelly Carmichael will open a family-friendly snack bar across from Adventure Landing. Convenient walkup counter service is offered with outdoor deck seating for parents to watch the kids play. ? Listen Honey, an Emerson Signature Store: Chip Gramling and Jim Ross have teamed up with native-Kentucky artist Emerson Quinlan to bring an original and humorist addition to the Village. Quinlan has been hard at work creating custom artwork and designs especially for Baytowne Wharf in his first real retail venture outside of his home state. The store will feature signed original artwork and reproductions along with whimsical gift items all featuring Emerson?s signature quips and graphics. There are new and improved accommodations at Sandestin: ? Luau, a two-tower condominium building, will add 243 suites to Sandestin?s sugar-white beaches in spring 2006. Luau will feature a sunset observation deck on the roof, an expansive sun deck and a 4,000-square-foot pool complete with a swim-behind waterfall, an island oasis, a hot tub and a children?s pool. Luau?s one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums feature spacious accommodations and full kitchens. ? Bayside Inn?s rooms, suites and public spaces, are currently undergoing an extensive $4.2 million renovation program to be completed this spring. ? The Residence Inn Sandestin at Grand Boulevard and Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard will offer more than 300 rooms to the resort?s room inventory when completed.
