Bay Point Resort Golf Club (Meadows course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1973

Bay Point Resort Golf Club (Meadows course): At the eastern end of Florida's Emerald Coast, just across St Andrews Bay from Panama City, you'll find Bay Point Resort and its two top-quality and contrasting championship golf courses - the more expansively roaming (and briefly bayside) Nicklaus course may command most attention, but the classical, parkland elegance of the Meadow course is still a favourite with many - the charm and genteel serenity of this excellently maintained layout conceals its undoubted challenges - the sometimes tightish fairways are cut through elegant stands of pines, oaks and magnolias - occasional ponds threaten at some holes, especially at the start and finish of your round and in the mid-section of the back-nine - laid out on relatively flat, uncontoured terrain, most of the holes on this out-and-back design are flanked by mature housing, which is generally set well back behind the tree line - good bunkering adds to the clear definition of each hole, and confers a stylish look on the often large and sloping greens - a pedigree, older-style, classical parkland course which attractively complements Bay Point's more open and varied Nicklaus layout.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
