The Nicklaus Golf Course at Bay Point is the first and only Nicklaus Design course in Northwest Florida. This award-winning course was formerly known as Lagoon Legends (one of the toughest and most challenging courses in America).
The course was redesigned and renovated from 2004-2005 and re-opened under its new name, the Nicklaus Course at Bay Point on September 17, 2005.
The Nicklaus Course opened to rave reviews and was named by Travel + Leisure Golf as one of the most worthy redesigns and notable debuts in the state of Florida. It was also a finalist for the “2005 Renovation of the Year” by Crittenden Golf Inc.
THE NICKLAUS DESIGN GOLF 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. *THIS HOLE CAN BE VIEWED FROM THIS CONDO.

THE MEADOWS COURSE
The Meadow Course at Bay Point is pure country club, the kind of golf course members enjoy playing day after day and visitors return to year after year.
Its occasionally tight fairways, numerous bunkers and lakes provide an ever-changing set of challenges.
Boasting 6,913 yards, it has the length to test the best golfer's distance. Even its advanced tees offer challenge as seen in handicap ratings which range from a 73 at the Ladies' Tees to a 73.3 at the Championship tees.
There's plenty of challenge here and a consistent demand for length, accuracy and playing strategy.
