Golf - Public Course · 9 Holes · Par 72
Panama City Beach, Fl
Holiday Golf Club located only one mile off the beach is a semi- private, 18-hole par 72 Championship 6600 yard course. They also have a lighted par 3 course and practice facility. We played and enjoyed the par 3 course. It's a great way get on the links and practice your short game and see if you can win a cold beer or margarita from your golfing buds.
The holes range from 58 to 145 yards and the fairways are in very good condition. You'll find water on 6 holes and 7 traps protecting very small greens. The greens were in fantastic condition, about average speed, and easy to read.
We played early evening and just about got carried away by some of the huge and numerous mosquitoes - bring bug spray!
Rates: $15.00 to $25.00
Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
