Detailed description of PGA National Resort, Champions Course

PGA National Resort is a Resort, 90 hole golf facility located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The facility has five 18-hole golf courses. They are The Champions Course, The Palmer Course, The Squire Course, The Fazio Course, and The Estates Course.

The Champions Course

The course first opened for play in 1981. The Champions Course was designed by Tom & George Fazio. The course was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1990 and again in 2002. The finishing holes, #15, #16, and #17 are known as the "Bear Trap," because they all require shots over water.

The Champion Course is the most revered of all the courses at PGA National. The Champ was the site of the 1983 Ryder Cup, the 1987 PGA Championship, as well as the permanent home for the PGA Seniors' Championship from 1982-2000 and today features The Honda Classic.

I was very disappointed with this golf course. It was very unimpressive for hosting a Tour event. A very good course, but don't have too high of expectations for it.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

The conditions were good. It's a course that you should play at least once, given the signature holes (Bear Trap).

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

This course is the sight of the Honda Classic on the PGA Tour. If possible when in the area it is great to tee it up on the Champ.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level
