(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) – PGA Golf Club has introduced a wide array of spring golf packages featuring its three onsite golf courses—Dye, Ryder and Wanamaker—nearby St. Lucie Trail Golf Club and a variety of lodging options to suit any size golf group.
For players in search of a quick getaway, two-night, two-round packages begin at $209 per golfer. A five nights and five rounds package, called “The Handicap Wrecker,” starts at $686 per golfer. All told, nearly 20 different options are 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,” said 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.”
PGA Golf Club, owned and operated by the PGA of America, has announced its Wanamaker Course vaulted five spots, from 21 to 16, in “Golfweek’s Best: State-by-State Courses You Can Play 2016 in Florida.”
Named in honor of Rodman Wanamaker, who in 1916 inspired the birth of The PGA of America, Wanamaker is a classic Florida layout designed by Tom Fazio. It gracefully meanders through a backdrop of wetlands, palm trees and palmettos, and is widely considered one of the state’s most beautiful courses.
“The Golfweek ranking is further validation that the enhancements made to Wanamaker appeal to serious golfers who appreciate solid design, challenging shot values and superb conditions,” said Jimmy Terry. The Dye Course maintained its top-30 ranking in state at 27, making PGA Golf Club one of only a handful of properties to place two courses on the list.
The 20,000-square-foot clubhouse has been completely renovated. 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.
PGA Golf Club is conveniently located off Interstate 95 in Port St. Lucie, Fla. just 50 minutes 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?
