The PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach, Fl., is founded on the PGA of America’s standards on quality and excellence. It is reflected not only on their services and other amenities, but more importantly on how great the golf courses here are. It is not even a matter of size because even the shortest/smallest of the courses in this golf vacation destination, the PGA National – Squire Course could easily equal the grandeur of its bigger counterparts.
The PGA National – Squire Course is one of the Tom/George Fazio creations on the resort, and measures just over 6,400 yards from the longest tees. What it lacks in length, it makes up for in hazards and other elements for just the right amount of challenge to complement its unmatched scenery. It wouldn’t be called a “thinking man’s course” for nothing. The golf vacation favorite tests foremost of all a golfer’s accuracy and precision in his shots; the long hitters will surely catch themselves scratching their heads more than once on the several doglegs on the course.
And for every heartache and headache it causes the “thinking” golfer, it makes up for in beauty. The PGA National – Squire Course is one for the naturalist. The golf trip haven runs along parts of a natural wildlife reserve and has an abundance of natural vegetation. The course plays for a par of 72, and is named after the first ever Grand Slam winner, The Squire himself, Gene Sarazen. The PGA of America lives up to their dedication to superb golfing, from the biggest down to the minutest detail.
