These are recent photos of the former Hombre Golf Course.  The owners of homes will now have a strip mall out their back door. It appears that the strip mall will drain toward the homes in the back. This is a very sad situation . . . 


  1. From the information I’ve seen, it appears the only winner in this acquisition is Torchlight and possibly those who will serve on the board. We’ve lived on the canal and paying fees for 28 years. I haven’t seen on dime from those who live on the golf course but can use the canal. It may be time to downsize in a different location.

  2. The DRI for BP actually expired years ago. We avoided an Hombre scenario on the will and strength of the community. Now we are taking actions to prevent an Hombre in BP by acquiring ownership of the golf course properties, thereby determining our own destiny.

  3. Steve, your point is spot on target. You will have more information once a final acquisition contract is proposed and approved. We have been reluctant to hold meetings when we had nothing final to discuss with owners. Hopefully this will be concluded very soon and we can begin explaining the real story of what we could do. I am confident this community will be pleased with what has been planned, as it will add value and pleasure for everyone. It has been a very long and arduous task to get this far.

  4. Here are Glades sales numbers if anyone is interested.

  5. PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) — Developments are finally underway, two years after Hombre Golf Club closed its doors. After Hurricane Michael damaged the almost 30-year-old golf course, Hombre Golf Club was forced to officially shut its doors in October of 2018. Since then, rumors have swirled about what will happen to the 233-acre property. Now, owner, George Roberts is ready to reveal what is taking place. He said the Back 9 that was closed before the hurricane will be a 58 lot subdivision and that DR Horton is looking to purchase the middle piece of the property. “That will be all residential,” Roberts said. He said he’s developing the front piece, where the number 10 was, into a commercial property. “Looks like there’ll be a bank, a couple of doctors offices, a tire store,” Roberts said. “They’re all stand-alone parcel buildings, it’s not a strip mall.” Roberts said he hopes to have the front lot completed soon. “The Tierra Verde piece in the back and the commercial piece in the front will probably be simultaneously completed, hopefully within the next six months,” Roberts said. Roberts said because of the pandemic and other developments, it was slow to take off. “The COVID stuff, trying to get permits, trying to get things,” Roberts said. “We are very fortunate in Bay County right now that we do have a lot of stuff going on.” He said he fought hard for the residential development on the lot. “The only commercial piece so far is that out front,” Roberts said. But residents might be wondering about one more thing: What will happen to the Club House? “I do have something here at the clubhouse that we are working on that could be something very exciting for the neighborhood and the community,” Roberts said. “But at this time, I don’t have anything locked in.” But he said he has high hopes for something very special.

  6. This could be my back yard if we do not all vote to have Bay Point purchase the Meadows Course! I think of the extra temporary monthly amount I would have to chip in as an investment since my property values will then most likely NOT go down and will most likely go up as opposed to the Hombre properties in the above photos! If you have any realtor friends simply ask them how the property values of the Hombre are doing as a result of this land grab for additional development?

  7. It’s a shame they don’t have the same deed restrictions that we do. Of course we are not comparing apples to apples.

    Pretty sure we live at Bay Point for a reason. Love our DRI and the protection that it affords. Not to mention we have an excellent board and strongly involved community.

    I don’t see us having a shopping center on our golf course anytime soon – do you?
