Panama is known for its world-class golf courses that offer well-maintained turf, upscale amenities, and course layouts that accommodate golfers of all skill levels. Located in Panama City, Summit Golf Club is home to a popular 18-hole resort course that appeals to novices and professionals alike.

$190.00 per pax (includes golf cart) + $75.00 for golf clubs
The Summit Golf Course first opened in the 1930s when it served as a field for workers of the Panama Canal and residents of U.S. military bases. Its location in Camino de Cruces National Park is where the Spanish would transport gold during colonial times.
It wasn’t until 1850 that the Camino de Cruces was no longer used for transit with the introduction of the Panama Canal Railroad Company. By 1999, the abandoned gem was discovered and came to be known as the Summit Golf Club.
Summit Golf Course was designed by world-renowned American golf course architect, Jeffrey Myers. The current course spans 6,626 yards and overlooks the famous Culebra Cut of the Panama Canal.
There’s no denying the unique history of Summit Golf Course. It has become one of the area’s top attractions as golfers have the opportunity to see the Panama Canal Railroad Company cross, as they play.
The Summit Golf Club claims to offer an “experience like no other.” Visitors to the 18-hole championship golf course can enjoy a gorgeous golf facility with a full-service practice area, contoured putting surfaces, and multiple tee boxes. The golf course caters to the entire family, even offering a six-hold, par-three course designed for young golfers.
There are many features and amenities to enjoy while at Summit Golf Course, such as the state-of-the-art golf simulation. Visitors can also improve their driving and putting skills on the driving range and putting green, as well as sign up to receive private instruction at the golf academy.
Golfing at the Summit Golf Club can be both a fun and cultural experience. Located on the east bank of the Panama Canal on Gaillard Highway, golfers at Summit can take in the breathtaking scenery while getting the opportunity to see the occasional wildlife that passes through. The Summit Golf Course is also considered one of Panama’s most challenging courses, perfect for experienced golfers who enjoy a challenge.
While a visit to the Summit Golf Club is a must while in Panama, the Summit Rainforest & Golf Resort also offers many other activities to enjoy. Summit is a hot spot for birdwatchers as it is conveniently situated next to the Pipeline Trail where more than 1,000 species of birds migrate each year.
The resort also offers an expansive outdoor pool deck with two pools, as well as a large mural of all the animals you might encounter during your stay, such as sloths and toucans. On December 1, 2021, the resort inaugurated the country’s first-ever Sloth Rescue and Rehabilitation Center where guests can learn about the preservation of these animals and their environment.
From the nature trails to the butterfly and frog farms, there’s something for everyone to enjoy while visiting Summit Rainforest & Golf Resort.
