Golfers, get ready for the ultimate golf destination. Resort Collection’s signature 27-hole championship golf course, Hombre Golf Club in Panama City Beach, has reopened its clubhouse after undergoing extensive renovations and the results are stunning. The renovations include new office space, an expanded retail section in the pro shop, fully renovated dining and bar areas, newly designed men’s and women’s locker rooms, and the installment of a custom art piece in the clubhouse entry featuring pro golfer, Ben Hogan.
Imagine walking into the clubhouse and being greeted with a beautiful seven-foot-high, 11-foot-wide glass engraved of Hogan’s legendary 1-iron shot from the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion. That image alone is enough to make any golfer’s heart race. As you walk around the clubhouse, the flow and aesthetics have been carefully and beautifully designed. Rustic wood floors and tables, luxurious leather chairs, and bronze details are just a few of the aesthetic upgrades in the clubhouse.
In addition to the interior remodel, Hombre Golf Club has made renovations to the courses to accommodate larger tournaments, bringing more players to the Panama City Beach from across the country.
When you enter into the golf course, you can tell that a lot of thought and pride has been put into the renovations. The workmanship and pride of the golf courses is definitely remarkable and is a sight to remember, which is no surprise. Hombre has been long known for hosting the annual PGA Tour Qualifying School and the field has been graced with distinguished golfers. Maybe you’ve heard of them? Gary Nicklaus, Mike Weir, Michael Campbell, Frank Lickliter and Scott McCarron are just a few of many more. The course also doubles as the home to the Academy at Hombre Golf Club, which offers classes, camps, and private sessions with golf professionals. Here’s a little sneak peak of what to expect:
Hombre Golf Club is truly a visionary piece of art and every golfer’s dream.

Drive, chip, and putt to better golf skills!
The Academy at Hombre Golf Club will host junior golf camps throughout the summer at the renowned Hombre Golf Club in beautiful Panama City Beach, Florida.
These golf camps are a perfect way for young golfers to learn about the game of golf. Campers create or improve their swings while developing fundamental skills and golf etiquette, as well as bolstering confidence and self-esteem.
Academy Campers will see and feel improvements in all facets of their game – full swing, short game, putting and strategic course management and theory.
From age 5 and up, kids receive instruction at their own speed and interest. The age breakdowns are 5-7, 8-11, and 12-15. Within each age group the juniors are broken into groups of four with one instructor to work on similar skills. To reduce anxiety and increase focus, the beginners train with beginners and the more experienced students train with their more experienced peers. At the end of each day, all juniors play together so the experienced players have the opportunity to mentor the beginners.
Ages 5-7, June 22-25, 9am-11am
Ages 8-11, June 29-July 2, 9am-12am
Ages 12-15, July 13-July 16, 9am-12pm

Each camp ends with a golf tournament in which parents are challenged to be their children’s coach and caddie for a specially set-up course on the beautiful fairways of Hombre.
