For Three Decades, PGA National Resort & Spa Has Made....
COUNTLESS GOLFERS HAPPY!!
The golf courses here are nowhere near ordinary!! These courses have been the home of the PGA Senior Championship for more than two decades, and is the current home of the Honda Classic!!! The resorts FIVE SUPERB course and their descriptions are listed below:
The Champion Course:
Two words. The Bear. Jack Nicklaus. One of the biggest names in golfing history brings his signature Bear Claw this side of the country to mesh with the perfect Florida terrain. The Champion course holds the famous – or, rather notorious - “Bear Trap, a three-hole stretch on the course that are known to be the most demanding in Florida, or as USA Today likes to put it, “one of the toughest stretches in golf”. This was originally a Tom/George Fazio creation, opened in 1981, Nicklaus gave it a total overhaul in 1999-2000.
- 7,048 yards (longest tees)
- 150 acres
A true risk-reward layout – a signature mark of its designer, the legendary Arnold Palmer. This course features a lot of forgiving holes, fast greens, and the most scenic most challenging finishing holes on the resort, and perhaps in the entire state of Florida.
- 7,072 yards (longest tees)
- 120 acres
- Par – 72
- 6,465 yards (longest tees)
- 105 acres
The oldest of the courses on the property, the Haig course is the other one of the two Fazio creations. It was named after the golf legend, Walter Hagen. The Haig Course was made to be fun and playable for all golfers regardless of skill levels. The designers played with the location of the water hazards, which play on quite a number of holes, to achieve their goal.
- 6,806 yards (longest tees)
- 115 acres
The Estates Course:
It is not the size of the course that should faze the golfer. This shorter course will prove to anyone that excellent placement of the bunkers and water hazards are enough a reason for a golfer to not take short courses all too easily. Designed by Karl Litten and opened in 1984.
- 6,694 yards
- 120 acres
