The PGA National Resort and Spa was built on high hopes and high dreams, founded on the PGA of America’s high standards. Proof to this is the quality of its first course – the PGA National – Haig Course. Built in 1980 by Tom and George Fazio, and surrounded by several other high caliber golf courses, the Haig has remained to be amongst the finest in the resort and in the Palm Beach area. And with scenery all too unique to the Sunshine State, no room is left for questions and doubts as to why this is a favorite golf vacation destination.
Along with four other courses, the PGA National – Haig Course makes up the five courses of the PGA National Resort and Spa. It measures 6,806 yards from the longest tees, the third largest in the resort, and plays for a par of 72. The Fazio duo created the golf vacation haven to be playable and relaxing for all golfers, regardless of skill levels. And so the designers played on with the location of the water hazards. The result is a course that never requires a cross over water shot, giving the golfers more options for their shots.
Apart from that, the PGA National – Haig Course is also very versatile. Its 9th and 18th holes both lead to the clubhouse, giving the golfers an easy option for a full game or a shorter afternoon game before lounging at the clubhouse. This makes for golf trips that are fun at the most, relaxing the least, and perfect at its best. And all that are standing on the PGA of America’s standards on quality and excellence in the sport.
