Fresh off its comprehensive $125 million revitalization, PGA National Resort & Spa is a world-class golf, spa, vacation and meetings 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 several Senior PGA Championships. PGA National hosted the 23rd season of Golf Channel's “Big Break” in early 2015.

The Champion Course 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.” The legendary resort also has the unique distinction of being home to both the David Leadbetter Golf Academy and Dave Pelz Scoring Game School, along with offering a PGA TOUR-level fitting experience at the PGA National Club Fitting Lab. At its off-site Estates Course, the resort 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. Its numerous multi-use settings include a permanent, lakeside wedding venue with stunning vistas; scenic Lakeside Lawn perfect for receptions; iDeck – a new 2,000-square-foot terrace ideal for indoor / outdoor dining and entertaining; and the 19th hole bar and grill named “Bar 91.” Other distinguishing highlights include a new 33,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Sports & Racquet Club with 19 Har-Tru tennis courts; 40,000 square-feet of self-contained conference and event 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).
