Designed by Tom Fazio, The Squire is the shortest and the most exacting of the courses at PGA National Resort & Spa. Tom Fazio referred to The Squire as "the thinking man's course". The golfer is required to test his or her accuracy with fairway woods and long irons from many tees -- and the smaller greens demand precise iron shots. In addition, The Squire has several doglegs to test the longer hitter's control. Success or failure on the doglegs will make or break your round.
The Squire has more natural environmental areas than The Haig, The Palmer, and The Champion. Teeming with native vegetation, these areas attract an abundance of wildlife. The 5th hole runs along part of the wilderness preserve, which borders the west side of the PGA National community.
The Squire is named after the immortal Gene Sarazen. Nicknamed "The Squire," he is as much a part of golf history as anyone who has played the game. He was a true competitor who became the first person to win the professional Grand Slam, the U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship, and the Masters. His actions on and off the course were always exemplary and he stands today as a credit to all who have enjoyed the game.
