PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- PGA National Resort & Spa - home of the PGA TOUR Honda Classic and five resort and championship courses - has extended its partnership with Buffalo Communications (Buffalo) as public relations agency.
"Buffalo Communications has helped drive leisure and group business from target markets in the U.S. and Canada," says Joel Paige, Vice President and Managing Director of PGA National. "National and regional publicity for our world-class golf, wide array of amenities and state-of-the-art meeting facilities has led to increased awareness and revenue."
"PGA National is one the crown jewels of golf and a resort and conference destination with few peers," says Rich Katz, Managing Director of Buffalo. "We are thrilled to further help grow PGA National's market share."
The resort's storied golf history includes hosting the 1983 Ryder Cup, 1987 PGA Championship and nearly two decades of the Senior PGA Championship. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, PGA National underwent a $65 million revitalization of its 379-room hotel, clubhouse, golf courses, spa, health and racquet club, and conference and meeting space.
Contemporary additions consist of a striking zero entry pool, signature restaurant - the Ironwood Grille - and trendy, atmospheric lobby iBAR. The final phase, a $15 million room transformation, is underway.
