South Florida’s world-class golf vacation and spa destination-PGA National Resort & Spa-is offering two exceptional golf packages for the spring. The Resort located in Palm Beach Gardens recently enjoyed a wildly successful PGA TOUR Honda Classic.
Propelled by the return of local resident Tiger Woods, and the drama of the world’s best players taking on The Champions Course, home to the infamous Bear Trap(Holes 15-17), the 2018 playing of the Classic shattered attendance records by attracting 224,642 spectators during a week of perfect South Florida weather. Additionally, CBS posted the highest viewership and ratings for the tournament in five years as Justin Thomas won the event in a dramatic playoff.
For golfers interested in tackling the famed Champions Course and mighty Bear Trap just like the best players in the world, the Champion Package is the quintessential option. Beginning at $399 through April 30(per person, per night, double occupancy), the offer is highlighted by one round of golf daily on the The Champion as well as luxury accommodations with private balcony or terrace and full breakfast each day in the newly renovated Palm Terrace.
Resort guests can also take full advantage of the newly transformed Palmer Course during the same time frame with the Gold Golf stay-and-play offer. Starting at $319(per person, per night, double occupancy), the package includes nightly luxury accommodations with private balcony and terrace, full breakfast in the Palm Terrace and one round per day as well as unlimited range balls and complimentary bag storage.
“This year’s Honda Classic showcased PGA National’s outstanding golf amenities in spectacular fashion,” says Greg Saunders, Vice President & Managing Director. “Not only can our guests enjoy taking on the Champion and Bear Trap just like the pros on television, they can savor our premier golf instruction, luxurious accommodations and amenities, and the glorious South Florida weather and active lifestyle for which our area is famous.”
The legendary PGA National destination features three additional first class golf layouts: The Fazio, The Squire and The Estate. The David Leadbetter Golf Academy and Dave Pelz Scoring Game School are both located on the property and available for individual instruction and group clinics. Every Ball Counts-the world’s first science-based statistics-driven training system for golf improvement is offered at its off-site Estate Course, and the state-of-the-art TOUR level club fitting at the renowned PGA National Club Fitting Lab.
Guests can enjoy the recently opened 33,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Sports & Raquetball Club, featuring a wide array of fitness activities and classes, including pickleball, indoor raquetball and volleyball courts, and 19 Har-Tru tennis courts. The Club has the latest exercise equipment, three aerobic studios with new sound systems, a five-lane saltwater lap pool, and a spin room with video road mapping. Two-time Australian Open Champion, Johan Kriek manages his new Johan Kriek Tennis Academy which caters to elite juniors with focus on stroke production, point construction, match play, video analyses, fitness, gym and mental training.
Not to be missed, The Spa at PGA National is clearly a one-of-a-kind oasis with 40,000 square feet of tranquility. There are 32 treatment rooms and relaxation lounges, over 100 diverse pampering options, a full service salon and the exclusive “Waters of the World” outdoor mineral pools.
After all that activity or golf, the dining options at PGA National are delightful and delectable.

Cafe Pronto is a great quick stop for a little nosh and hot coffee. For specialty drinks and unique hors d’ouvres just take a seat at the iBar in the lobby, which is adjacent to Ironwood Steaks & Seafood, one of the finest dining rooms in all of Palm Beach. At the Spa, Waters of the World Cafe serves healthy fare and outside at the pool you have Waves for poolside treats and shakes.
