Located minutes from the white sandy beaches of Panama City Beach, Bay Point Golf Resort and Spa has long been recognized as one of Florida's most popular and respected golf destinations. Bay Point Resort, which is nestled on an 1,100 acre wildlife sanctuary, offers a premium golf experience on two championship golf courses – the Nicklaus Course and the Meadows Course.
Boasting over 7,000 yards, the Nicklaus Course is the only Nicklaus Design golf course in Northwest Florida. This award-winning Panama City Beach, Florida resort golf course features lush fairways with generous plateaus and uncharacteristic elevation changes unique to the Florida Panhandle region. A few holes offer stunning panoramic views of the Grand Lagoon and St. Andrews Bay.
The Meadows Course epitomizes Florida golf in the classic country club tradition. Stretching 6,913 yards, this Florida resort golf course has the length to test the best golfer's distance. The layout features several tight fairways, along with numerous bunkers and lakes which provide an ever-changing set of challenges on this Panama City Beach, Florida golf course.

The Nicklaus Course at Bay Point is the first and only Nicklaus Design course in Northwest Florida. This award-winning course was formerly known as Lagoon Legends (one of the toughest and most challenging courses in America). The course was redesigned and renovated from 2004-2005 and re-opened under its new name, 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 Design Course is truly of epic proportion. It measures more than 7,000 yards with a slope rating of 143 and a course rating of 75.3. 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 memorable. Hole No. 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.
