About the Course
The golf course at Panama Country Club was built in 1927 by W.C. Sherman & famed designer Donald J. Ross, ASGCA. At just under 6,700 yards, the course offers subtle contours, narrow to medium width fairways, and provides a great test of golf for all handicaps. The greens are all-new, strategically sized and are very indicative of the era in which they were originally built. Multiple tees are available, ranging from Championship up to the forward tees that come in at 5,400 yards.
As you’ll find out quickly, the course is a sanctuary for Northwest Florida wildlife. While you play a round of golf, you may see eagles, egrets, herons, turtles, and even the origin of our mascot who you’ll see in our logo, the famed “fox squirrel.” There are no homes on the interior of the course, which leaves a nice protected habitat for most all coastal wildlife.
The country club hosts the Sherman Invitational Golf Tournament each year on this course, which brings in some of the best amateur players in the region. The golf tournament was first held the year the course opened in 1927, and is still going strong today as the oldest continuously-held amateur tournament in the Southeast.
Daily beverage service is available on the course, along with a full service driving range, short game area, and two practice greens available for your enjoyment. We are located in Lynn Haven, Florida, just north of Panama City.
