PGA National

The PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach is one of the finest golf resorts in Florida, and the rest of the US. Home to the PGA of America, the PGA National Golf Resort expertly combines our great sport with everything you’d expect from a luxury vacation destination.

The stunning surroundings offer luxury like no other, while the world-class wellness facilities and exclusive membership club add the cherries on top. It’s no wonder we named it in our fab four of Florida.

There are no less than six championship courses to choose from here. The flagship is the PGA National Champion course, home to the notorious ‘Bear Trap.

This PGA National golf course plays host to the Honda Classic on the PGA Tour every year and has also welcomed the Ryder Cup and the PGA Championship. Other courses include The Palmer, The Fazio, The Estate, The Match, and The Staple, each offering challenges and an opportunity to refine your skills.

The Championship Course

The Champion Course, which was originally created by Tom Fazio and his uncle George, and was later renovated by Jack Nicklaus in 2014, is the foundation of PGA National’s illustrious golfing history.

The Champion added the Ryder Cup to its list of tournament when it hosted the event in 1983. It currently serves as the host of the annual Honda Classic on the PGA Tour. The perilous closing holes, often known as “The Bear Trap,” are some of the most difficult in the World.

The Fazio Course

George and Tom Fazio created the Fazio Course, which was the first to be finished at the PGA National Resort. The strategically placed water hazards on Fazio’s 6,806 yard layout present the biggest hurdle, necessitating a mix of strength and accuracy. The Haig, which was named after the renowned Walter Hagen, a record-breaking winner in golf’s early years, features water in play on 15 holes.

The Palmer Course

Arnold Palmer, whose intense playing style is evident in his design at PGA National, created the Palmer Course. The fairways are generous and the greens big, but because there are so many significant water hazards, aggressive play carries a lot of risk. The par-5 on the 18th hole is a true all-or-nothing challenge, and one of the toughest holes for even the highly skilled golfer.
