    2014 CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC

    NOVEMBER 14, 2014

    Mark your calendar now!  An exciting day of golf, fun and camaraderie with South Florida’s business aviation community will be held Friday, November 14th at the prestigious PGA National Golf Resort and Spa in beautiful Palm Beach Gardens.  We have expanded the event to two courses to accommodate the continual demand for this event.

    Sign up today!  Registration is now open at the cost of $200 per golfer or $700 per foursome.  All proceeds benefit the SFBAA Scholarship fund, Angel Flight, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Space is limited to 200 golfers, so we ask that companies limit their registrations to a maximum of two foursomes.  All registrations and payments must be received by October 1, 2014.  Please complete the Golf Registration form found at the bottom of this page and send to Jeff Ramsden (jr@ramjetaviation.com or via fax: 954-359-0209).  Registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.  This event will sell-out, so register today!

    Format:  As always, this is a four person best-ball scramble with trophies, prizes, and bragging rights at stake.  Skills challenges and side competitions along the way give even the highest handicappers a chance to win.  All players receive a complimentary goodie bag, lunch, beverages on the course, and an expanded cocktail reception after play ends which will include hors d'oeuvres, trophy presentations, and a raffle.

    The Courses

    THE FAZIO COURSE

    Formerly the Haig Course

    The Fazio is a reinvention of The Haig, PGA National Resort & Spa's original 18-hole course that opened in 1980.  The Haig was designed by George and Tom Fazio in tribute to five-time PGA champion Walter Hagen, and its renovation is being led by third-generation designer Tom Fazio II, who emphasized modernizing the course layout.  While the original par-72 routing remains intact, the renovation improves the classic golf architecture with modern advances, including:

    • A 70% increase in total green surface to 2.5 acres, grassed with TifEagle on the greens and Celebration Bermuda grass on tees and fairways
    • Reconfigured tee boxes and bunkers
    • Player-friendly tees allowing the course to be played at 5,100 yards in accordance with the popular “Tee it Forward” initiative sponsored by the PGA and USGA

    Fazio II himself believes his renovation “[achieves] that ideal balance where single-digit golfers will be fully challenged while higher handicaps will have a layout ideal for a day of enjoyable resort golf.”

     

    THE SQUIRE COURSE

    Named after the immortal Gene Sarazen, the first golfer ever to win the professional Grand Slam, "the thinking man's course" is the ultimate test of accuracy and precision.  Designed by Tom and George Fazio, The Squire is the shortest and most exacting of the courses at PGA National Resort.  Accuracy with fairway woods and long irons is tested on many tees, and the new smaller "Emerald Bermuda" greens demand precise approach shots.  Several doglegs provide a risk/reward opportunity for any longer hitter as well. The Squire is surrounded by natural areas teeming with vegetation and wildlife – the 5th hole even runs along part of a wilderness preserve, which borders the west side of the PGA National community. 

     


    The Resort


    The PGA National Resort & Spa just put the finishing touches on a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2012.  It has been home to the PGA’s Honda Classic since 2007 and includes a Wine Spectator-awarded signature restaurant, zero-entry pool and a rejuvenation spa to go along with its five championship golf courses.  They have recently updated all their courses with new turf, rebuilt bunkers, expanded tee and green complexes, and modernized two of their older courses.  It has a decorated history and tradition as one of the finest golf resorts in South Florida, located just 20 minutes from the Palm Beach Airport.

    We have been granted a courtesy rate for those interested in staying on the premises overnight.  The night of the Tournament (Friday, 11/14) rooms are $139 + $10 resort fee.  If you would like to stay for the weekend, the other nights are $189 + $10 resort fee.  The easiest way to book is by visiting their website via this link, which will give you our discount.  Or, you can call 1-800-863-2819 and mention the SFBAA Charity Golf Classic.
