PGA National The Palmer

Given the name from its creator, Arnold Palmer, this course is among the most gentle from tee to the fairway at the PGA National Resort, generally regarded as a risk/reward course. The open fairways and relatively large “Champion Bermuda” greens can be really receptive and welcome golfers to take a gamble if they dare – as players are not excessively penalized for missing the fairway the first cut on the majority of the golf holes. There is a significant amount of undulation through most of the fairways, offering the potential for irregular lies and encouraging creative shoot making. The Palmer has a great few finishing holes, the 18th perhaps one of the most picturesque par 5s on the PGA National Resort.

Players will enjoy a links-style round of golf with numerous grass bunkers and a shared green on holes 8 and 12.

Arnold Palmer had an illustrious relationship with the PGA National Resort. In early 1984, the King was in charge of the Seniors tour, dominating events throughout the country and when he showed up at PGA National to play in the PGA Seniors Championship, he did not disappoint. After an opening round of 69 on the Champion course, He followed up on day two with a course record 63! This was Arnies best score in over 18 years. And of course, he went on to claim first prize.

We love this golf course not just for scoring reasons and its fairness, It rewards well-played golf shots that take a great deal of nerve to pull off, and any group visiting the PGA National Resort could happily play this course a number of times.

The Palmer course does not have the prestige of the Champion, yet it is still a fantastic test of golf, the wide-open fairways draw you into a false sense of security!
