Congrats to All Gulf Coast Triathlon Finishers at Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort!



The 33rd Annual Gulf Coast Triathlon made Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort its new home this year on May 9, and we at Resort Collection were excited to host these amazing athletes from all over the world as they ran, swam, and biked their way across Panama City Beach.

The course began and ended at Edgewater with a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride, and a 13.1-mile run for a total 70.3-mile race. There was also a sprint course. Over 430 entrants took on the challenge of the Gulf Coast Tri, with Mr. Tony White from Nashville clocking in first overall with a time of 4:08:33. The female overall winner was Lori Williamson from Birmingham, AL, crossing the finish line in 4:41:19. The local winner, David Shearon of Panama City Beach, has finished as the top dog in town for the 11th time in 12 years. Congratulations to all the competitors!

We look forward to the 34th Annual Gulf Coast Triathlon and hope to host this great athletic event again!

Hombre Golf Club Unveils Newly Renovated Clubhouse



Hombre Golf Club, Resort Collection’s signature twenty-seven-hole championship golf course in Panama City Beach, has fully reopened its clubhouse after undergoing extensive renovations over the winter season.

Upon entering the clubhouse, members and visitors are greeted with a seven-foot-high, 11-foot-wide glass etching of Hogan’s famous 1-iron shot from the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion. The piece was commissioned by Hombre Golf Club owner and course designer, Wes Burnham, and was created by the late artist Josef Meier of Panama City Beach in 1989. Following its creation, the piece was shipped to Hogan’s home in Fort Worth and signed by him with an etching pen in 1990.

Par-Con, Inc. was the general contractor for the project in collaboration with Bowers Construction and the Resort Collection team. In addition to greatly improving the flow and aesthetics of the clubhouse, the renovations allow Hombre to accommodate more and larger tournaments, bringing players to the Panama City Beach area from across the country.
