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:
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 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.
