PGA NATIONAL RESORT & SPA Florida's premier golf destination resort

Nestled in the heart of posh Palm Beach Gardens, PGA National Resort & Spa has long been a place of unforgettable moments. Anchored by five championship golf courses (the only golf resort in Florida with five golf courses) including the iconic Champion Course, home to the PGA TOUR’s Honda Classic and legendary Bear Trap, the revitalized resort also features a world-class spa, state-of-


the-art Sports & Racquet Club, eight on-site restaurants and lounges, semiprivate members club, 339 redesigned rooms and themed suites, extended stays vacation home rentals and so much more. From the moment they enter the contemporary lobby, guests instantly feel PGA National’s appeal. For here, at this Palm Beach destination, relaxed luxury is always the standard, golf is never considered just

a game and, together, the two create an enviable lifestyle that embraces the best the Sunshine State has to offer. Golf is at the heart of PGA National. Guests can test their games on some of Florida’s top-rated golf courses designed by world-renowned architects Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Fazio and George Fazio. All of our award-winning layouts have been updated with new turf, rebuilt bunkers, and expanded tee and green complexes; PGA National’s first 18-hole course, The Haig now known as The Fazio, was modernized by third-generation designer Tom Fazio II. Recently, the Champion Course jumped in Golfweek’s 2017 “Best Resort Courses” list, an annual compilation of America’s finest playing options. The famed Nicklaus design has welcomed the world’s best golfers for the Honda Classic since 2007 and hosted the 1983 Ryder Cup. Immaculate conditions and a challenging layout make the Champion a “must-play” for all serious golfers; the infamous “Bear Trap” (holes 15 through 17) comprises what USA Today hails as “one of the toughest stretches in golf.” PGA National Resort & Spa has a multitude of facilities available for guests looking to improve their golf skills during their stay. Three elite golf academies – The David Leadbetter Golf Academy, Dave Pelz Scoring Game Golf School and Every Ball Counts Elite Training – are on site, as well as the Southern Golf Central • Volume 17, Issue 6
