Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, is home to one of the most famous golf resorts and spas in the world –PGA National. This beautiful retreat is home to PGA’s legendary Champion Course. Originally opened in 1981, the course was the location of the 1983 Ryder Cup, the 1987 PGA Championship, the Senior PGA Championship from 1982–2000, and since 2007 it has hosted the PGA TOUR’s Honda Classic. One of the course’s well-known features, the “Bear Trap,” was designed by “the Bear” himself, golf legend Jack Nicklaus. In 2018, the course was updated with Nicklaus’s plans. It looks like the time has come for more renovations to this top golfing destination. Here is the latest news on the changes coming for PGA National:
The PGA National Renovation Plan
PGA National’s changes will center around making updates to the resort and spa areas and creating a more upscale setting for guests and residents. The overall plan for the property is to renovate the club and hotel into a more luxurious space for members and guests. Improvements will also be made to the clubhouse and property restaurants.
The 100-million-dollar renovation plan includes impressive expert details such as bringing celebrated chefs Jeremy Ford and Lindsay Autry to reimagine two of the resort’s restaurants. The spa is scheduled to be re-designed by tennis star Venus Williams’ company V Starr Interiors. Once the changes are made, PGA National aspires to be competitive with other luxury hotels in Palm Beach County.
The construction plans include renovating the hotel lobby, updating all 339 hotel rooms and bathrooms, and the clubhouse. There will be a new fitness facility for hotel guests and a kid’s club at the resort. The hotel will also be more accessible for family travel. Additionally, there will be a strong emphasis on offering health and wellness features for residents.
As these renovations occur, PGA National is expected to continue to attract luxury residential buyers. One attractive benefit that this community will offer is being able to live in an exclusive golfing community without having to purchase an expensive club membership. If construction goes as initially planned, the renovations are expected to be completed by the 2022 Honda Classic.
