(PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.) – PGA National Resort & Spa – South Florida’s world-class golf, vacation, meetings and spa destination – announces its “Stay and Save” package for the upcoming 2019 PGA TOUR Honda Classic held on its celebrated Champion Course from Feb. 23 (Sat.) – March 3 (Sun.).
Experience one of the premier golfing events on the PGA TOUR firsthand while staying on the resort grounds and walking out your door to the tournament. Starting at $459 per night, the exceptional “Stay and Save” offer includes nightly luxury accommodations, a $50 resort credit per room per night for use at the legendary resort’s spa, golf or food and beverage outlets plus two general admission tickets to the Honda Classic. The offer is valid for new reservations only.
PGA National is also offering its Honda Classic VIP Experience Room Package starting at $814 (per person, per night, double occupancy) and $1,199 per night for single occupancy. The package allows unrivaled access to the resort’s myriad amenities. Highlights include nightly deluxe room accommodations, daily VIP access to the 18th Hole Chalet, access to the “Bear Trap Party” on No. 17, and daily rounds of golf on The Palmer, Fazio or Squire courses with unlimited range balls and use of the driving range.
Additionally, the Honda Classic VIP Experience Room Package includes daily valet parking and use of the resort’s Sports & Racquet Club and “Waters of The World” therapeutic pools at The Spa. Taxes and resort fees are extra. Golf play is based on availability.
“The popularity of the Honda Classic creates a tremendous amount of excitement for our guests as they can go right from their rooms to watch the best golfers in the world compete,” says Greg “Coach” Saunders, vice-president and managing director. “It’s an honor to host the first stop of the PGA TOUR’s ‘Florida Swing’ as the players vie for the winner’s trophy on one of the game’s great tests of golf.”
PGA TOUR players, fans and guests will discover significant changes to The Champion Course following a comprehensive renovation by Nicklaus Design. Most notable are the removal of Palmetto palms on the right side of No. 1 and left side of No. 9. One-third of an acre (14,400 sq. ft.) was also recaptured on the putting surfaces, returning them to the native design Jack Nicklaus and his team implemented 16 years ago. The layout reopened last November to rave reviews.
