Panama Country Club is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway along the Gulf of Mexico. Donald Ross designed the golf course in 1927. Eight of the holes still reflect his original work. The fairways range in size from narrow to medium width and they are strategically routed through the natural features of the environment, not only preserving them but also allowing them to come into play. The course is mostly flat, making it pleasant to walk, but there are a few subtle contours that provide a challenging element to the layout. A number of holes also feature water hazards. The small greens play fast, indicative of the era in which they were built. Panama Country Club's greens are in consistently good condition year-round thanks to a 2005 resurfacing project.

What once was

Through no fault of their own, this course currently looks like a war zone (due to a hurricane). The greens, tee boxes and most fairways are good but there is no shade at all and aesthetically, it is just not pleasing.

Making a Comeback

We'd read the other reviews but couldn't comprehend the damage done to the area until droving through the neighborhood to get to the course. So many trees had been downed that the course has had to have taken on a whole new look of openness to the members and regulars. To us it just looked inviting.

Fairways are in excellant condition, as are the tee boxes and greens. There is not a lot of rough except were tress have been removed and mulch as been piled up. Plenty of doglegs in either direction make it fun for all kinds of drives. Bunkers are in professional shape with what would have been soft sand except for an overnight rain.

One comment about the greens - we didn't see a single ball mark on any of them, which is a testament to their firmness and TLC. We appreciated that.

The management is to be commended on the condition of the course and the ever changing landscape it's presenting.

We will be back.

Decent

Decent course for the price. Beginner course no doubt. Not much hazard play to deal with and a fairly open layout. Greens were in good shape minus being a little tall on the grass.

Don’t waste your money

The course is in awful shape. Greens and fairways are terrible! No restroom facilities anywhere on the course except for a port a potty. Driving range (if you can call it that) consists of 5 carpet mats that leave a layer of dirt on your club with every shot. Do not waste your money going here. I feel sorry for the actual members!!!

Panama City Country club Golf Course

This Golf Course is still coming back from Hurricane Michael- they have done a ton of work to get this course back up and running! When it is finished it'll be super great again!!!! The staff is beyond nice and the workers are very respectful of the golfers!!!

Lot’s of work to do!

Incredible amounts of devastation and construction still in progress 18 months after Hurricane Michael devastated the course. Clubhouse nonexistent. Membership consideration nonexistent. I’m sure it’s an insurance fight issue. Just wish they could get on with the rebuild. Course is nothing like it was before the storm. Not surprising. Needs lots of attention.

Always liked this course but missing the tree lined fairways

I love the layout of this course but without the trees it makes for a very windy game. The course seems to be wet all the time. Hoping over time it gets back to what it was before the hurricane. They’re doing a lot of work on the course.

Panama Country Club. Feb 22 2020

Course suffered significant hurricane damage 3?? Years ago and has not fully recovered. As a result the whole course is very wide open. 5he course lacked what I would consider basic items. Readily visible yardage markers 100, 150, 200. No indication of flag position on the greens made approach shots challenging. All flags were identical.

Nice round

Greens were slow with green dye fertilizer overall in good condition. Tee boxes fair. Fairways in pretty good shape. Clubhouse under repair operating out of trailer. Cute, friendly beverage cart girl with beverages/snacks. Did see several large number of carts together(4) but we did not run into them. Pace of play good. Trees are pretty much gone and when I drove up kind of looked like country airport..

Course is in good shape

They are doing a lot of work on the course. It’s getting better every time we go. It was extremely windy and there’s not as many trees to break the wind which made the game challenging.

Too bad about Michael

My wife and I played it today, would have really liked to have seen/played before Michael. On the plus side staff and beverage cart girl were great. We also got paired up with a couple of great guys.
