PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (May 18, 2007) - Older resort golf courses without historical significance tend to get tossed aside quicker than trophy wives.
It\'s all about the newer, the better and the bolder in the grab for golf vacation dollars. PGA National Resort & Spa is certainly no different in this race to stay current.
Its showcase Champion Course underwent a renovation to wow the PGA Tour players - and therefore the public - as the new host of the Honda Classic. The resort itself has overhauled all its rooms, put in plush sheets, flat-screen TVs and bathrooms that Martha Stewart could appreciate.
Only there\'s one thing at PGA National that\'s stood the test of quick golf time: The Haig course. This Tom and George Fazio design came in as the first course at the now five-course resort. It opened in 1980 and while everything\'s changed around it - Director of Golf Bob Coman remembers when I-95 didn\'t even reach Palm Beach Gardens - Haig has stood strong.
Even today, it\'s the second-best golf course at PGA National. Champion Course is clearly the class of this South Florida getaway spot, the reason golfers should have this place on their vacation radar. But the Haig gives PGA National some added value. It\'s a second-thought course that is anything but second class.
\"The Haig still ends up being the course that a lot of the guests who stay for a week will play more than any other course,\" PGA National caddie Kevin McCaffrey said.
