Sheraton Bay Point Resort - Nicklaus Course

The Nicklaus Design Course is truly of epic proportion. It measures more than 7,000 yards with a slope rating of 143 and a course rating of 75.3. The layout lends itself for a truly memorable round, regardless of skill level. It plays along the natural terrain of majestic scrub oaks, towering Florida pine trees, sandy-white waste areas and salt-water marshes. The layout features “illusionary” bunkers that are strategically placed to tempt golfers through a “risk/reward” scenario and uncharacteristic elevation changes that are unique to Northwest Florida. Many holes are quite memorable. Hole No. 17 features a green design reminiscent of a “fish bowl,” where the green is actually recessed below the surrounding landscape, creating a challenging semi-blind shot to the green. The signature hole, No. 5 offers spectacular panoramic views of the Grand Lagoon and St. Andrews Bay.
