Designed by Tom Fazio, the Fazio Course was the first to open for play at PGA National Resort & Spa. Fazio's goal in designing this spectacular choice among Palm Beach golf clubs was to create an outstanding quality course that would be playable for all types of golfers. The major design factor relates to the location of water hazards. There are no crossing water hazards -- which means the golfer always has the option of playing around a water hazard rather than over it. This eliminates a major obstacle for the high handicap golfer. At 6,806 yards, the Haig is the second-longest course at PGA National and has the highest difficulty rating from the standard men's (white) and ladies' (red) tees. Our Palm Beach golf resort requires a combination of length and accuracy off the tee to set up your approach to these tricky greens. Both the 9th and 18th holes return to the clubhouse area … allowing play to start from the 1st and 10th tees, making the Haig Course a convenient choice for 9-hole play in the afternoon. The Squire Designed by Tom Fazio, the Squire is the shortest and the most exacting of the courses at PGA National Resort & Spa. Tom Fazio referred to the Squire as "the thinking man's course." The golfer is required to test his or her accuracy with fairway woods and long irons from many tees -- and the smaller greens demand precise iron shots. In addition, our North Palm Beach golf course has several doglegs to test the longer hitter's control. Success or failure on the doglegs will make or break your round.
