Bay Point Golf Club re-opens today with new TifEagle greens

Today is the Ryan Mulvey has talked about for years. It’s the day that the Nicklaus Course at Bay Point Golf Club re-opens after a three-month renovation of its greens and greenside bunkers.The Panama City Beach course, completely rebuilt by Nicklaus Design in 2005, has replaced the Tifdwarf grass on its greens with TifEagle, a heartier strain of Bemudagrass that needs less maintenance.


The Tifdwarf, said Mulvey, general manager Bay Point Golf Club, better transitions from the Northwest Florida “winter’’ season to the all-important June-July months in which play is at it peak.

“The golf course (with water on 15 of 18 holes) always has been challenging,’’ Mulvey said. “The new greens now provides us a premier putting surface 12 months of the year.

“They look spectacular. This really opens the doors for us to start driving a lot of regional play and the Nicklaus Course one of the top courses in the Southeast.’’
