Designed by Tom Fazio, the first golf course named in honor of Rodman Wanamaker, the New York City department store magnate, who in 1916 inspired the birth of The PGA of America.
A classic Florida layout, Fazio's Wanamaker Course, formerly the South Course, is set against a backdrop of wetlands, palm trees and palmettos, and is considered one of Florida's most beautiful courses. There is a premium on the tee shot to set up a good approach shot to the well-guarded greens.

The 18-hole St. Lucie Trail (formerly PGA Country Club) in Port Saint Lucie, FL is a private golf course that opened in 1988. Designed by Jim Fazio, St. Lucie Trail measures 6906 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 134 and a 74 USGA rating. The course features 5 sets of tees for different skill levels. Greens and fairways are Bermuda grass.
This traditional course has small, fast greens. Water comes into play on ten holes with over eighty green and fairway sand bunkers that provide added challenge to the narrow fairways. The first seven holes meander through lakes and beautiful homes with an abundance of native Florida foliage. Holes 8, 9 and 10 wind into pine trees much like a Carolina course would. Holes 11 and 13 are more open and forgiving. (located about 7 minutes from the PGA Golf Club)
