On Aug 14, President Obama along with First Lady Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha enjoyed a short stay at the Bay Point Marriott hotel overlooking St. Andrews Bay in Panama City Beach, Fla.
The President was trying to show his support for the Gulf Coast in light of the BP oilspill. That he did, by going out for a father-daughter swim at Alligator Point.
But the reason they stayed at the Bay Point Marriott is because the hotel is famous for it’s golf vacations. In fact, the golfing at Bay Point is so good that even 9-yr old Sasha Obama managed a lucky hole in one, in full view of the cameras.
Bay Point has a Golf Club with two spectacular championship 18-hole golf courses – the Meadows Course and the only Nicklaus Design Course in NW Florida. Marriott guests get a 20% discount at both courses, and there’s no need to haul your clubs all the way to Panama City Beach. The hotel has new Nike sets that guests can use for free.
They also offer stay and play golf packages, and there’s an Autumn Golf Escape offer valid through Oct 31. Includes accomodations starting from $159, a $25 gift card for food or merchandise at Club 19 or the Bay Point golf club’s pro shop, and free shuttle from the Marriott Hotel to the Golf Club.
