The Haig



PGA National Resort & Spa offers the highest quality golf experience and is a mecca for players and fans alike. Host of the Honda Classic an official PGA TOUR event, PGA National has a distinguished history of tournament play - including the 1983 Ryder Cup, the 1987 PGA Championship, and nearly two decades of PGA Seniors' Championships. As our guest, you are invited to walk in the shadow of legends. Test your skills on five spectacular, tournament-ready courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Fazio and George Fazio, and Karl Litten. A diverse array of layouts awaits, from the "emerald" greens at The Squire to the forgiving fairways of The Haig, to The Palmer's undulation and eye catching ground cochina hazards. And of course a golf vacation at PGA National is not complete without a trip through The "Bear Trap" - the legendary 15th, 16th, and 17th holes at The Champion - considered by many as the toughest three hole stretch in golf.

The HaigDesigned by Tom and George Fazio and named  after golf legend Walter Hagen, the Haig Course was the first to open for play  at PGA National Resort & Spa. Fazio's goal in designing this spectacular  choice among Palm Beach golf clubs was to create an outstanding quality course  that would be playable for all types of golfers. The major design factor  relates to the location of water hazards. There are no crossing water hazards  meaning no forced carries eliminating a major obstacle for the high handicap  golfer and creating a more relaxing experience. At 6,806 yards, the Haig is the  third-longest course at PGA National and has the highest difficulty rating from  the standard men's (white) and ladies' (red) tees. Both the 9th and 18th holes  return to the clubhouse area, allowing play to start from the 1st and 10th tees  making the Haig Course a convenient choice for 9-hole play in the afternoon.
