Golf in Panama City Beach 

Why did Golf Digest magazine name Panama City Beach one of the nation›s top three golf towns? Well, for starters, we offer four championship golf courses. Plus our 320 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of 74 degrees make for perfect golfing conditions nearly every day of the year. Sound too good to be true? Thanks to affordable green fees and year-round tee times, you too can enjoy golfing in paradise, complete with 162 different chances for a hole-in-one.
