A Message from Summit Rainforest

It is time to remember and value the moments lived.

With all of our united strength, the doors will open, and with them, all the joy that characterizes Panamanians.

But while that day comes, Summit Rainforest & Golf Resort tells you:

The "Check-In" is at home.

Summit Golf Club

Panama's First Golf Course

The Summit Golf Course maintains a long history, as it was originally opened in the 1930's and served as a field for residents of U.S. military bases as well as for the workers of the Panama Canal.

The field was built in the Camino de Cruces National Park, which is where the Spanish transported gold in Colonial times. 

It was only until 1850, when the Panama Canal Railroad Company was built, that the Camino de Cruces was no longer used for transit.

It was in 1999, when our family found this abandoned gem and began to build what is now our Summit Golf Club.

Due to our course's unique history, one of its biggest attractions is that you are able to see the Panama Canal Railroad Company cross, as you play.

Our golf course is now open for Green Fee's (Post COVID-19). For an immediate Tee Time reservation, please contact our Whatsapp number +507 6400-8208.

About Us: A Birdwatcher's Paradise

This upscale tropical resort is situated on a magnificent and beautiful rainforest area, between the Metropolitan National Park and Soberania National Park. It is because it is between two national parks and within Pipeline Trail, that over 1,000 birds migrate on a yearly basis. 

The Summit Rainforest and Golf Resort features 160 acres of tropical land, including 4 walking trails, that serve as grounds to observe a variety of bird species, as well as exotic species of flora and fauna.
