Sun and Fun Golf Association - Golf Travel Specialists

Since 2002, the PGA Tour has held the Honda Classic each spring in Palm Beach Gardens, FL at the PGA National Resort and Spa.  Why has this resort been a regular host the PGA to for so long?  Is it the AAA Four Diamond resort rating? Perhaps it’s the ninety (90) holes of golf on (5) championship courses, the eight (8) on-site restaurants and lounges, the luxurious guestrooms, the 40,000 square feet of European Spa facilities, or the famous “Bear Trap”?  There are many reasons, and that is why the SFGA is hosting a golf trip next year in Oct. of 2020.  Here are some details of the planned event:

Package Inclusions:

Ironwood Steak & Seafood– Join us at one of Palm Beach’s most coveted tables: Ironwood Steak & Seafood at PGA National Resort & Spa.
Amid the sounds of conversation and bottles opening, you’ll hear a few terms swirling in the air. When we say “contemporary American cuisine,” we nod to the finesse our chefs display with the finest ingredients. Experience it in signature creations like the Tomahawk for Two, a 32-ounce cross of Wagyu and Black Angus beef dry-aged for 21 days and cooked to perfection in a Vulcan 1,200-degree broiler, and in selections highlighting the best of local cuisine: fresh Snapper and Mahi-Mahi fished in area waters; our roasted beet salad sourced in part from nearby Swank Farms.

iBar – Here, you’ll melt into one of the most stylish enclaves in Palm Beach; into a mix of savvy locals and sophisticated travelers; into an alluring evening of drinks, shared plates, conversation and who knows what else. Adjacent to PGA National Resort & Spa’s signature restaurant (Ironwood Steak & Seafood), iBAR beckons you for aperitifs. Go ahead and scan our after-dinner drink and cigar offering – you know you’ll be back following your Ironwood experience. But when the night is all yours, give in to iBAR. There’s always something happening- live entertainment (Thursday through Saturday), Girls’ Night Out. Keep the party going as long as you desire – we’re open until 1 a.m. Let our full bar, smart wine list, and creative cocktails tempt you –sip a refreshing Cucumber Breeze with Bulldog London Dry Gin, muddled cucumbers simple syrup and tonic or a Raspberry Mojito, a blend of Cruzan Rum, Chambord, raspberries, mint and lime juice.

Palm Terrace Restaurant– Talk about an eye-opener: PGA National Resort & Spa’s newly-renovated Palm Terrace gives everyone in your group a sunny outlook for the day with indoor and outdoor seating adjacent to the resort pool and a menu capable of pleasing any palate. Get a jumpstart with our hot and continental buffets, or select something made-to-order like a “choose-your-own” omelet, pancakes or our Cast Iron Steak and Eggs. Our chef also creates delectable vegetarian options from fruit-and-yogurt parfaits to the Breakfast Skillet of plantain, yucca, vegetable hash, spinach and a fried egg. And of course, we offer a strong line-up of coffee drinks, including espressos, cappuccinos, and lattes.​ Palm Terrace serves breakfast from 6:30 - 11:00 a.m. daily  (By night, the venue is a poolside location for special events).

Bar 91 – Bar 91 is a sports bar, taken to the next level. Boasting one of the best views in golf - overlooking the famous championship greens of PGA National Resort & Spa - it doesn't get any better than this! Kick back after a round and enjoy a drink with your friends while feasting on the best burgers in town, or a mouth-watering chef's specialty. Bar 91 is a great post-game retreat to relax and relive the great game! Or catch the game on one of our large screen TVs. Hours of Operation: 11:00AM-5:00PM Daily.

Three rounds of golf are planned including (1) round on Nicklaus’s Champion Course (current host of the Honda Classic), (1) round on the Estates Course (designed by Karl Litten), and (1) round on the Fazio Course (Tom Fazio II redesign).  All 3 courses are easily accessible from the resort rooms located on property after a satisfying breakfast buffet in the resort’s Palm Terrace restaurant. Along with daily breakfast, 2 cocktail receptions, 2 group dinners, and final round lunch is included.  The proximity of these amenities in one location make this resort champion worthy.

Champion Golf Course

Originally designed by Tom and George Fazio for major tournament play, The Champion course at PGA National Resort & Spa was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1990 and now hosts the Honda Classic each spring on the PGA TOUR. Jack Nicklaus redesigned the course in 2014 giving professional golfers from around the globe reason to keep this destination on their radar.  Beware of “Bear Trap” along the closing holes.

Tee / Par / Yardage / Slope / Rating
Tee #1 (Black) 72 / 7045/ 75.2/ 148
Tee #2 (Gold) 72 / 6727 / 73.4/ 145
Tee #3 (Blue) 72 /6373 / 71.7/ 138
Tee #4 (Red) 72 / 5145 / 71.7/ 136

Estates Golf Course

Designed by Karl Litten, The Estates course presents an enjoyable mix of challenging and docile holes. The course sets up for any level of player as it is one of the shorter courses at PGA National Resort & Spa. Where golfers are tested is in the formidable placement of fairway bunkers and water hazards. Generous fairways at this course will often make stray tee shots more manageable, and the large, inviting greens help keep the course fun for the high handicapper. Forced carries to many of the greens over either hazards or bunkers create a test that makes each round more enjoyable than the last. With an open feeling created by the property-wide housing setbacks, the course seems almost like a core golf course. The Estates course is located five miles west of the main resort.

Tee / Par / Yardage / Slope / Rating                                 
Tee #1 (Black) 72 / 6707 / 72.6 / 138
Tee #2 (White) 72 / 6095 / 69.6 / 125
Tee #3 (Green) 72 / 5484 / 66.4 / 116                          
Tee #4 (Red) 72 / 4788 / 68.3/ 112

Fazio Golf Course
PGA National Resort is proud to present the new Fazio course. The Fazio is a reinvention of The Haig, PGA National Resort & Spa's original 18-hole course that opened in 1980. The Haig was designed by George and Tom Fazio in tribute to five-time PGA champion Walter Hagen, and its renovation is being led by third-generation designer Tom Fazio II, who emphasized modernizing the course layout. While the original par-72 routing remains intact, the renovation improves the classic golf architecture with modern advances.

Tee / Par / Yardage / Slope / Rating                                 
Tee #1 (Black) 72 / 7050 / 74.5 / 139
Tee #2 (Blue) 72 / 6600 / 72.3 / 136
Tee #3 (White) 72 /6200 /70.4 / 133                          
Tee #4 (Green) 72 / 5560 / 67.6/ 121

The award maintained Talay Thai’s power and excellence among Palm Beach County;s finest restaurants. In early 2013, TripAdvisor named Talay Thai #1 out of 95 restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens.
