Tackle The Bear Trap Like PGA TOUR Pros in the Honda Classic
(PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.) – PGA National Resort & Spa – South Florida’s world-class golf, vacation and spa destination – announces two exceptional golf packages for spring getaways following the wildly successful Honda Classic recently played on its Champion Course.
Propelled by the return of local resident Tiger Woods, and the drama of the world’s best players taking on The Champion Course’s famous three-hole Bear Trap (Nos. 15 – 17), the 2018 Honda Classic shattered its attendance record by attracting 224,642 spectators during a week of perfect South Florida weather. Additionally, CBS posted the highest viewership and ratings for the tournament in five years as Justin Thomas won the event in a dramatic playoff.
For guests interested in tackling the famed Champion Course and mighty Bear Trap just like the world’s best players, the Champion Package is the quintessential option. Beginning at $399 through April 30 (per person, per night, double occupancy), the offer is highlighted by one round of golf daily on The Champion as well as luxury accommodations with private balcony or terrace and full breakfast each day in the Palm Terrace.
Resort guests can also take full advantage of the newly transformed Palmer Course during the same timeframe with the Gold Golf stay-and-play offer. Starting at $319 (per person, per night, double occupancy), it includes nightly luxury accommodations with private balcony or terrace, full breakfast daily in the Palm Terrace, one round per day as well as unlimited range balls and complimentary bag storage.
“This year’s Honda Classic showcased PGA National’s outstanding golf amenities in spectacular fashion,” says Greg Saunders, Vice President, Managing Director. “Not only can our guests enjoy taking on the Champion and Bear Trap just like the pros on television, they can also savor our premier golf instruction, luxurious accommodations and amenities, and the glorious South Florida weather and active lifestyle for which our area is famous.”
The legendary destination also features three additional first-class layouts: The Fazio, The Squire and The Estate. Additionally “on campus” are the David Leadbetter Golf Academy and David Pelz Scoring Game School for individual instruction and group clinics; Every Ball Counts – the world’s first science-based, statistics-driven training system for golf improvement is offered at its off-site Estate Course; and state-of-the-art TOUR level club fitting at the PGA National Club Fitting Lab.
Guests can also enjoy the high-tech 33,000-square-foot Sports & Racquet Club featuring a wide array of fitness activities and classes, including pickleball and tennis on the 18 Har-Tru tennis courts (11 lit for night play). Not to be missed is a visit to The Spa, which recently renovated its ladies lounge with sleek new furnishings, contemporary décor, steam rooms, saunas and indoor whirlpools.
