The Honda Classic at PGA National Resort and Spa

This week we stop at The PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.  PGA National boasts 5 Championship courses on the property. All of the courses are challenging and provide a wide range of skill to conquer each course.

Whether it’s a family vacation, business, or buddies trip, – PGA National welcomes all.  

In fact, the only unwelcoming part of PGA National is the famed “Bear Trap”, which consists of Holes 15, 16 and 17. These holes were a part of the 2014 re-design by Jack Nicklaus. The Bear Trap has quickly become one of the toughest stretches of golf on the tour. Spectators flock to this popular spot of the course as it’s where the party takes place. PGA National re-opened the Palmer Course after going through a renovation of its own in 2017. Read more here.

As you can see, lots of exciting things are happening at PGA National, so if you’re interested in paying a visit you can check out some of their packages here.
