The Panama City, Fla., resort is currently undergoing an extensive renovation project covering its 200-room hotel, spa, and conference area.
KemperSports has been selected to manage golf and clubhouse operations at Bay Point Resort in Panama City, Fla.
Bay Point Resort is currently undergoing an extensive renovation project that includes a full renovation of the 200-room hotel, spa and expansive conference area. During the renovation, the resort’s two championship golf courses remain fully operational with optimal course conditions.
Situated in a 1,100-acre wildlife sanctuary with views of the salt water marsh and Gulf of Mexico, Bay Point Resort includes a pair of 18-hole golf courses.The Meadows Course, originally designed by Willard Byrd in 1973, routes through a pine forest. The Nicklaus Course, built in 2005 and the first and only Jack Nicklaus Signature Design in Northwest Florida, features abundant water, marsh and sand coming into play on most holes.
In addition to the golf courses, the resort includes a tennis club, multiple dining venues, full-service spa, two outdoor pools and outdoor hot tub. The resort and spa will be professionally managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
“While the resort is currently undergoing an extensive renovation, we felt that this was the opportune time to partner with a top management company for the long-term health of our two treasured golf courses,” said owner representative Chris Beavor.
“Bay Point Resort is one of the premier properties in the Southeast,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with the ownership through the renovation process and re-establishing Bay Point as a must play.”
Once the hotel and conference center renovation is complete, a full renovation of the 130 golf villa units will begin.
