(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) –Look out! Spring is just around the corner. The PGA Golf Club is now offering new spring golf packages featuring three onsite golf courses (Dye, Ryder and Wanamaker). St. Lucie Trail Golf Club has a variety of activities for the whole family such as 5 Har-Tru tennis courts, swimming pool and spa.
For players in search of a quick getaway, two-night, two-round packages begin at $209 per golfer. Starting at $686 per golfer, “The Handicap Wrecker” includes five nights and five rounds (one on each course, plus an additional area course), for a more immersive experience. All told, there are nearly 20 different options available to book at www.pgavillagegolf.com. Accommodations are offered in partnership with a number of local area hotels, as well as the onsite, multi-bedroom “Perfect Drive Villas.”“Traveling golfers associate South Florida with winter getaways, but the spring is arguably the single best time to tee it up in the Sunshine State,” says Jimmy Terry, PGA General Manager, PGA Golf Club. “The courses are in superb condition, the weather is typically dry and sunny, and the overall value is hard to beat. Generally, fairways are less crowded, the pace of place brisk, and the days are longer.”
For history buffs, the PGA of America has relocated notable trophies and artifacts tracing its 100 years to the new “PGA Gallery” area of the clubhouse. A showcase of the major championship trophies of golf includes the PGA Championship’s original Wanamaker Trophy. The Senior PGA Championship’s Alfred S. Bourne Trophy and the Vardon Trophy, with its iconic overlapped hands sculpture, are also prominently displayed.
PGA Golf Club’s Wanamaker Course underwent a significant re-grassing project late last year, heightening the playing experience by introducing new turf to fairways and bunker surrounds, and planting several ornamental species to reframe holes. It was recently rated one of the top-five courses in South Florida by The Golf Channel’s course rating website, Golf Advisor.
Perfect weather will be here very soon, there’s never been a better time to visit PGA Golf Club. Their newly renovated 20,000-square-foot clubhouse is now equipped with a modern golf shop, the American-British fusion Taplow Pub featuring a cozy, welcoming interior, and NINETEEN-SIXTEEN Bar & Grille, a members-only restaurant adjacent to the 18th Hole of the Wanamaker Course.
Getting there is easy! PGA Golf Club is conveniently located off Interstate 95 in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Less than an hour drive north of Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). PBI offers nearly 100 non-stop flights to more than 25 cities in the U.S. and Canada. It is under a two-hour drive from Orlando, Miami and other Florida population centers.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
