The Champion 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.
Originally designed by Tom Fazio for major tournament play, the Champion Course was eventually redesigned by Jack Nicklaus. Although the Champion Course has generous landing areas and spacious and accepting greens, golfers are presented with course management challenges throughout their rounds. The course has five sets of teeing areas, so golfers can choose the yardage that best accommodates their playing abilities. This makes the course enjoyable for golfers of all skill levels. The 15th, 16th and 17th holes - which, along with the 11th hole, have been designated as "The Bear Trap" by Nicklaus -- statistically have all been among the most difficult Holes on the PGA Tour.
This course is "Cart Path Only" from September 1-Memorial Day (1st Monday in May). Group Forecaddie mandatory between December 1-April 30.
