Sunset at the Sandestin resort

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort on Florida’s Emerald Coast reaches from a 7-mile strand of white sand beach to tranquil Choctawhatchee Bay. It includes championship golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, a marina, a fitness center and spa and a pedestrian village. Free amenities include resort-wide tram service and the use of bicycles, kayaks and boogie boards for exploring Florida’s Emerald Coast.

It Takes a Village

The conference sessions will take place adjacent to the Village of Baytowne Wharf in the Grand Complex. Accommodations will be in the vacation condominiums arrayed around it, convenient to both the convention center and the many restaurants in the village. We’ll also be right next door to the Tennis Center, Marina , Baytowne Adventure Zone and Jolee Island Park.

The special rate of $150 per night will be available when conference registration opens in mid-June. Detailed instructions for making the reservations will be posted here at that time.


Once you check in, you may decide you don’t need traditional transportation. You’ll be steps away from the pedestrian village, with its retail shops, entertainment venues and award winning restaurants and clubs. Baytowne Wharf was recently voted Best Place to Be Seen on the Emerald Coast and Best Local Attraction.

You can get around the resort using the complimentary tram. Feeling more adventurous? You may also choose to use free time on the resort bicycles, kayaks or boogie boards!

Want to stock your kitchenette and dine in? We’ll be less than 10 minutes by bike or car from the Publix grocery store at Grand Boulevard Shopping Center. For a walk on the wild side, check out nearby Topsail Hill Preserve State Park.

Further information about transportation options, including airport transportation, will be available as soon as registration opens.
