The icing on the cake for PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
It’s a good time to visit PGA National Resort & Spa, and it’s getting even better. The iconic south Florida resort, home of the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic, has been undergoing a $65 million “revitalization” as of late. The work has included everything from spiffing up the golf courses to enhancements to its 379-room resort hotel, spa, health and racquet club, and conference and meeting space.
Among the more impressive additions is a stunning zero-entry pool, newly-named signature restaurant – Ironwood Steak and Seafood – and the trendy, sophisticated iBAR, which is a great place to hang out in the evenings.
Now the resort is undergoing the final phase in those renovations, expected to be completed this fall.
“This next round of ongoing renovations will allow PGA National to continue to stay ahead of the curve in keeping our property in first-class condition, which is what our guests and members expect and deserve,” said Joel Paige, vice president and managing director of PGA National. “With all major construction completed, ongoing enhancements will have zero impact on current resort operations.”
The finishing touches include full guest room makeovers – new headboards, bedding, wall covering, carpet, atmospheric lighting, new furnishings and modern desk. The suites will have walk-in showers in the bathrooms. There will be updates in the corridors, a renovation of the 19th Hole Bar and Grill (renamed “Bar 19″), more golf course updates and a renovation to the Citrus Tree Cafe, which will be renamed “Palm Terrace.”
The 40,000 square-foot European Spa with 32 treatment areas and the exclusive “Waters of the World” outdoor mineral pools will also be updated matching the motif of the resort’s fashionably cool, hip decor.
In the meantime, PGA National still features the same five courses that make it one of most complete golf resorts. That includes the Champion Course, which plays host to the Honda Classic in March and has been the site of numerous other events, including the 1983 Ryder Cup matches.
The resort is also offering some special “Player” packages right now. Stay and Play deals start for as little as $199 a night and golf can be had for as little as $69. For more information on the packages, click here.
