PGA Golf Club reopens after Irma

Wanamaker, Dye Courses Sustained Minimal Damage;

PGA Learning Center, Taplow Pub, Clubhouse Resume Normal Operations

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (Sept, 18, 2017) PGA Golf Club – the flagship property of the PGA of America – announces its golf courses and amenities have reopened after sustaining minimal damage.

The Dye Course, the Wanamaker Course and St. Lucie Trail Golf Club all resumed normal operations on Sept. 16. The Ryder Course remains closed, while it undergoes complete renovations to its fairways and greens. The PGA Learning Center, PGA Golf Club clubhouse and its dining facilities, reopened on Sept. 14.

“We were fortunate in terms of the amount of damage at our facility, and our staff did an incredible job with the clean-up,” said Jimmy Terry, PGA Golf Club General Manager. “While our golf operations have resumed, our thoughts remain with those severely affected by Hurricane Irma.”

Celebrating its 21st year as one of the top public golf facilities in South Florida, PGA Golf Club boasts four courses (Dye, Wanamaker, Ryder and St. Lucie Trail) that are considered among the most scenic layouts in the entire state. Golfweek tabbed both the Wanamaker and Dye Courses among the Top 25 “Best Courses You Can Play” in Florida.

Through Sept. 30, any golfers playing St. Lucie Trail Golf Club and bringing three non-perishable food items for the Treasure Coast Food Bank will receive $5 off the rate. The food drive benefits victims of Hurricane Irma.
