Originally designed by Tom Fazio for major tournament play, the Champion Course at PGA National Resort & Spa was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1990. Although the Champion Course has generous landing areas and spacious and accepting greens, golfers are presented with course management challenges throughout their rounds. This South Florida golf resort course has five sets of teeing areas, so golfers can choose the yardage that best accommodates their playing abilities. This makes the course enjoyable for golfers of all skill levels. The first hole runs along the adjoining driving range, with a practice green located next to the first tee for that last-minute warm up. The 15th, 16th and 17th holes of our South Florida golf course - which, along with the 11th hole, have been designated as "The Bear Trap" by Nicklaus -- statistically have all been among The Top 10 Most Difficult Holes on the Senior PGA Tour. In May 2008, USA Today stated that The Bear Trap is "one of the toughest stretches in golf."
