About PGA National Resort & Spa
Fresh off its comprehensive $100 million revitalization, PGA National Resort & Spa is a world-class golf, vacation and meeting destination. The South Florida locale offers 90 holes of championship golf on five courses, including the famed Champion Course, home to the popular PGA TOUR Honda Classic and past host of the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship and a litany of other prized professional golf tournaments.
The Champion showcases the legendary “Bear Trap” – one of the most difficult three-hole stretches in the game. Holes 15, 16 and 17 are where designer Jack Nicklaus famously said, “It should be won or lost right here.” On-site programs from both the David Leadbetter Golf Academy and the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School, along with tour level custom club fitting from the PGA National Club Fitting Lab, are available. At the off-site Estates Course, PGA National additionally offers Every Ball Counts – the world’s first science-based, statistics-driven training system for golf improvement.
PGA National features customized suites ideal for weddings, golf “buddy trips” and spa aficionados; a permanent, lakeside wedding venue with stunning vistas; and new 19thhole bar and grill named “Bar 91.” Other distinguishing highlights include a world-class 33,000 square-foot health-and-racquet club with 19 Har-Tru tennis courts, 40,000 square feet of self-contained conference space and seven on-site restaurants and lounges.
Conveniently located within easy driving distance of major Florida population centers, the AAA Four Diamond resort is 15 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), one hour from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and 90 minutes from Miami International Airport (MIA).
