POINT MEADOWS GOLF COURSE IN PANAMA CITY , FLORIDA
Course at Bay Point Golf Resort is the first and only Nicklaus Design course in
Northwest Florida. This award-winning course was redesigned and renovated from
2004-2005 and re-opened under its new name (formerly known as Lagoon Legends),
the Nicklaus Course at Bay Point on September 17, 2005. The Nicklaus Course
opened to rave reviews and was named by Travel + Leisure Golf as one of the most
worthy redesigns and notable debuts in the state of Florida. It was also a
finalist for the “2005 Renovation of the Year” by Crittenden Golf Inc.
The Nicklaus Course is truly of epic proportion, and the layout lends itself for
a truly memorable round, regardless of skill level. It plays along the natural
terrain of majestic scrub oaks, towering Florida pine trees, sandy-white waste
areas and salt-water marshes. The layout features “illusionary” bunkers that are
strategically placed to tempt golfers through a “risk/reward” scenario and
uncharacteristic elevation changes that are unique to Northwest Florida.
Many holes are quite unique, for instance, hole number 17 features a green
design reminiscent of a “fish bowl,” where the green is actually recessed below
the surrounding landscape, creating a challenging semi-blind shot to the green.
The signature hole, No. 5 offers spectacular panoramic views of the Grand Lagoon
and St. Andrews Bay.
