PGA National - Estate Course Golf Packages
The Estates course may only be booked as part of a "Stay & Play" package. Please see the "PGA National Resort & Spa - Stay & Play" listing on the lodging page for details. Designed by Karl Litten, the Estate Course has an enjoyable mix of challenging and docile holes. The second-shortest course at PGA National Resort & Spa will test golfers with its formidable placement of fairway bunkers and water hazards. Generous fairways will often make stray tee shots more manageable -- and the large, inviting greens help keep the course fun for the high handicapper. Long, accurate tee shots are required on several holes, in order to more easily negotiate hazards in front of the greens. The homes along the golf course are set further back, contributing to the overall open feel of the course. Located 5 miles west of the main facility, the Estate Course is nestled in a small, peaceful community, creating a more relaxing experience. The Florida pines, subtropical foliage, and beautiful lakes that blanket the course comprise a wildlife haven that can be seen throughout your round.
PGA National - Fazio Course Golf Packages
The Fazio Course may only be booked as part of a "Stay & Play" package. Please see the "PGA National Resort & Spa - Stay & Play" listing on the lodging page for details. The newly renamed Fazio Course (2012) was the first course opened for play at PGA National Resort in 1980. The course was originally named in honor of Walter Hagen "The Haig" as he was famously known. Tom and George Fazio's original goal in designing The Haig was to create an outstanding quality course that would be playable for all types of golfers. The major design factor relates to the location of water hazards. There are no crossing water hazards -- which means the golfer always has the option of playing around a water hazard eliminating a major obstacle for higher handicap players. Along with the course's new name, comes a host of renovations that include new larger greens and tees as well as regrassed fairways and stunning new course landscaping. The Fazio is now the second longest course at PGA National at 7,050 yards from tips and solidifies PGA National's place as a world-class golf resort destination.
PGA National - Palmer Course Golf Packages
The Palmer course may only be booked as part of a "Stay & Play" package. Please see the "PGA National Resort & Spa - Stay & Play" listing on the lodging page for details. Designed by Arnold Palmer, the Palmer Course is the most forgiving for the "grip it and rip it" style of play. The open fairways and larger greens are quite accommodating, and the golfer is not overly penalized for missing the fairway or primary rough. There is a considerable amount of fairway mounding throughout the course, so the golfer is often challenged with uneven lies. The Palmer has a great series of finishing holes -- with the 18th hole being one of the most difficult and picturesque par 5s on the property. The Palmer is named for its gallery-pleasing designer, Arnold Palmer ... who attacked golf courses with an unharnessed fury. His character, charisma, and legendary charges won him a legion of followers -- known as "Arnie's Army" -- throughout the world. The Palmer is dedicated in honor of Arnold Palmer, the leader of an "army" of golf enthusiasts. His tireless effort to his fans and the game of golf is as legendary as his skill on the course.
PGA National - Squire Course Golf Packages
The Squire course may only be booked as part of a "Stay & Play" package. Please see the "PGA National Resort & Spa - Stay & Play" listing on the lodging page for details. Designed by Tom Fazio, the Squire is the shortest and the most exacting of the courses at PGA National Resort & Spa. Tom Fazio referred to the Squire as "the thinking man's course". The golfer is required to test his or her accuracy with fairway woods and long irons from many tees -- and the smaller greens demand precise iron shots. In addition, the Squire has several doglegs to test the longer hitter's control. Success or failure on the doglegs will make or break your round. The Squire has more natural environmental areas than the Haig, the General, and the Champion. Teeming with native vegetation, these areas attract an abundance of wildlife. The 5th hole runs along part of the wilderness preserve, which borders the west side of the PGA National community. The Squire is named after the immortal Gene Sarazen. Nicknamed "The Squire," he is as much a part of golf history as anyone who has played the game. He was a true competitor who became the first person to win the professional "Grand Slam" - the U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship, and the Masters. His actions on and off the course were always exemplary, and he stands today as a credit to all who have enjoyed the game.
