Both residents and visitors alike are now able to "tee-up" again at a few of the championship golf courses. November in Panama City Beach means bright, sometimes chilly mornings and cool afternoons brightened by glorious sunshine — conditions perfect for golfing. Check out a few of the local courses that you can spend the day on:
Holiday Golf Club had minimal damage and was able to re-open quickly after the storm. Holiday Beach Club is a semi-private, 18-hole, par-72 championship course located only a mile from the beach. The greens here are smooth, fast, firm and challenging. Known as one of Florida's most enjoyable yet challenging tracks, the course offers broad, lake-lined fairways and elevated greens that are protected by bunkers of silky white sand. Holiday features Bay County’s only lighted, 9-hole, par-3 course, designed with three sets of tees to accommodate varied skill levels. A lighted driving range and practice facility are also available, as are lessons, rental clubs and golf packages.
Signal Hill Golf Course is also open for business with no major damage. Panama City Beach’s first golf course, Signal Hill, was designed among white-sand dunes. The 18-hole, par-71 course features breathtaking scenery, challenging greens and precise fairways. Yardage is 5,617 from the blue tees and 5,259 from the red tees. Golfers can enjoy breakfast and lunch at Signal Hill’s snack bar and rent clubs at the course’s pro shop.
Sheraton Bay Point Golf Club has one of the two award-winning courses open this spring for visitors to enjoy. Bay Point Golf Club boasts a sprawling locale carved from Northwest Florida's natural terrain of scrub oaks, pines and saltwater marshes, making your experience challenging and unforgettable. As of March 1, 2019, Bay Point is welcoming golfers from all over the world to the Panhandle's only Nicklaus Course, boasting newly converted greens, provides a consistent putting surface with faster green speeds year-round. In addition, the 23 renovated green-side bunkers complement the greens. Visit Sheraton's website for tee-times, Bar 72 and Club House hours, open daily.
Shark's Tooth and Camp Creek Golf Club is another golf course that has its doors open for locals and visitors. Tucked among the oaks and pines of the coastal sanctuary of the Wild Heron community and along the shores of the largest dune lake in Florida, Lake Powell, Shark’s Tooth is a challenging routing that is truly one with nature.
