Located along Florida’s “Emerald Coast” approximately 17 miles from Panama City Beach, and built upon a spirit of relaxed refinement, the Watersound Community is a collection of neighborhoods woven through a former pine plantation and framed by a network of ecologically rich wetlands. Watersound is closely linked, both in character and in function, to the nearby community of WaterSound Beach. Rich in native understory vegetation such as live oaks, palmettos, and indigenous grasses, along with marsh areas and pine stands, Watersound’s abundant flora provides a dramatic landscape for this developing community. At the center of the community lies Origins Golf Club, Panama City Beach’s only ‘short course’ golf course.

Origins Golf Course was designed and built with the ‘short course’ concept at its core. The mission: make golf more fun, accessible and attractive to families, beginners and casual golfers. Via its non-penal design and manageable distance (approximately 1,800 yards) the Origins Golf Club near Panama City Beach is a golf course that both appeals and caters to novices. Yet its regulation-length holes and greens dimensions provide enough challenge and strategy to retain the interest of avid and experienced players. Consistent with the Scottish origins of the game, in which six, nine and 12-hole courses were commonplace.

The name, derived from the Panama City Beach golf course’s eminently walkable routing, is an overt nod to the traditional origins of the game. The course was designed by Love Golf Design, founded by PGA Tour player and PGA Champion Davis Love III in the late 90s. Known for designing traditional golf courses with classical elements, Love Design and St. Joe share a commitment to creating golf experiences that are interesting, enjoyable and challenging.



"It is golf made simple and fun, again, yet challenging enough to retain the interest of avid players."

- Davis Love III, Origins Designer
