(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) – PGA Golf Club and nearby St. Lucie Trail Golf Club, the 72-hole resort properties owned and operated by the PGA of America, are teaming with the St. Lucie County Tourism Department to offer area golfers value-packed rates on golf and lodging from June through October.

PGA Golf Club is ranked among the “75 Best Golf Resorts” by Golf Digest.

Golf rates start at $34 and room rates at $79 for a wide variety of lodging partners including the Residence Inn by Marriott, Hilton Garden Inn PGA, Homewood Suites by Hilton, and the Perfect Drive Villas. Golfers can book tee times and hotels online at www.GolfStLucie.com.

3 Taplow Pub

Before or after the round, the sports bar atmosphere of the Taplow Pub is a great venue for food and drink.

Upon check in guests receive a $25 gift card per room to the Taplow Pub in the newly renovated 20,000 square-foot clubhouse. The Pub is named after the establishment in New York City where Rodman Wanamaker invited a group of 35 prominent golfers in 1916 to a luncheon that resulted in the formation of the PGA of America. Cutting-edge audio and video components accentuate a room that seats more than 100 people. There are 15 televisions, with individualized programming for each booth.

“With a collection of courses designed by golf’s most influential architects, fabulous dining and first-class lodging minutes away, PGA Golf Club is the complete package,” says General Manager Jimmy Terry. “We’re thrilled to extend preferred rates to golfers; there’s never been a better time to tee it up at PGA Golf Club.”

Case in point, the critically-acclaimed Wanamaker Course designed by Tom Fazio jumped five spots to No. 16 in Golfweek’s 2016 “Best Courses You Can Play: State-by-State” list following a significant re-grassing project. Guests can also enjoy rounds on the other Tom Fazio-designed Ryder Course and nearby St. Lucie Trail Golf Club, also owned by the PGA of America and designed by older brother Jim. The fourth course in the collection, Dye Course, is currently closed for a complete renovation of fairways and greens and will re-open in mid-November.

The PGA Golf Club is located just off I-95 at Exit 121, 50 minutes north of Palm Beach International Golf Club (PBI) and no more than two hours from both Orlando and Miami. PBI offers nearly 100 non-stop flights to more than 25 cities in the U.S. and Canada. For more information about PGA Golf Club, access the website at www.pgavillage.com.
