In the summer of 2018, The Nicklaus Course underwent a greens conversion which involved the full-till process. This process included the original specs of the greens sprigged with Tif-Eagle Bermuda-Grass, a major upgrade to the ultra-dwarf grass.  The greens renovation has improved year-round course playability, green speeds, and receptiveness. 

The renovation also included all new green-side bunkers on all the holes on the Nicklaus Couse.  The course opened for public play starting October 8th, 2018. Located minutes from the white, sandy beaches of Panama City Beach, near Rosemary Beach and 30A. We're also conveniently located for Destin, FL, residents and visitors. Our championship course is carved from Northwest Florida's natural terrain of scrub oaks, pines, and saltwater marshes.
