Anchored by six championship golf courses, PGA National Resort reveals a major renovation.
Just in time to grab your clubs and hit the course, South Florida’s legendary PGA National Resort reveals a $100 million face-lift. “With this transformation, nothing was out of bounds. Our goal was to disrupt the misconception of a one-dimensional golf resort with a 360-degree luxury travel experience,” says Managing Director Patrick Brophy. Paying homage to 1960s elegance and charm, the property boasts fully updated guest rooms and private villas designed by KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group. Imagine wingback headboards, vintage black-and-white palm-leaf wallpaper, plush area rugs, lacquered and caned case goods, outdoor lounges and more. Outside your stay, indulge in an array of amenities, from the 40,000-square-foot spa that spotlights mineral pools, a 1950s-inspired barbershop, outdoor pool deck and bar to the new Andy Staples-designed golf course with 60- to 130-yard holes, unique undulations, funneling shots and challenging shelves. Brophy adds, “In creating this tropical paradise, every aspect of our redesign was thoughtfully planned for a modern and current take on Palm Beach Gardens from its inception. The key to this revitalization was finding a balance between world-class golf and imaginative dining, wellness and resort lifestyle.” As for the bites? Consider it a hole in one. With six new culinary concepts—including two restaurants spearheaded by award-winning chefs—indulging in an after-match meal will never be the same. 400 Ave. of the Champions, Palm Beach Gardens, 561.627.2000
