PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, has a remarkable five 18-hole championship golf courses. The Fazio Course is a reinvention of The Haig, PGA National Resort and 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 recent renovation was led by third-generation designer Tom Fazio II, who emphasized modernizing the course. While the original par 72 routing remains intact, the remodeling improves the classic golf architecture with modern advances. 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.”
For those looking to master the 7,050-yard Fazio layout, the club is home to the PGA National Golf Academy and extensive practice facilities. The double-sided driving range, short-game area, putting greens, and indoor training area provide a comfortable setting to work on your game.
The resort also includes luxury hotel rooms, nine restaurants and lounges, a 34,000-square-foot conference wing, a 40,000-square-foot spa, a 33,000-square-foot health and racquet club with 19 tennis courts, a golf digest academy, and a member's club.
