Located in Central America, Panama has stood out as a formidable golf destination. With amazing panorama, visitors can choose beach, city and mountain golf courses to their delight. This small country hosts the best golf course in all of Latin America and in light of this, the offerings are spectacular. To begin with, the opening of the Jack Nicholas Buenaventura Golf Course at the beach raised the bar really high. This specific course can compare with some of the best courses in the US.

The Summit Golf Club in Panama City is an 18 hole jewel designed by Jeffrey Meyers. This course was a gift left behind during the canal construction days. The gorgeous rain-forests that surround the course will make your experience more than pleasurable. It is advisable to golf during the mornings to steer clear of the hot afternoon sun and rain during the wet season. Having said this, golfing in the location can be done at any season because the sun is always shining. If you choose to go out of the city, there are two golf courses to consider.
