Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending the weekend at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. The focus for the women had a definite female bent, with concentration on cooking session, spa, shopping, etc. There were four women and three men in our group and while we were all wined and dined, the men spent more time playing golf (they were all golf writers), we did the things I just listed above.
When I came home and told Mr. “S” about it, he was excited about the two of us going there together. When I mentioned that they offer a Summer Escape and Play package beginning at only $89 per night (per person) that includes all the golf you can play he was ready to push me back into the car and go back.
- Luxurious nightly accommodations
- Unlimited daily golf rounds on The Palmer, Haig, Squire or Estates courses ($30 cart fee required)
- Complimentary daily replay rounds (no cart fee for replay rounds)
- Daily breakfast
- Complimentary club storage
- Access to PGA TOUR quality practice facilities with unlimited practice balls
- Access to the Waters of the World healing mineral pool
- 50% off David Leadbetter Golf Academy daily clinics during stay
Having spent the day using the Waters of the World healing mineral pools, I can tell you that I’d be happy spending the day there while he’s out on the links. BUT – I ALSO took a group clinic at the David Leadbetter Golf Academy while I was there and I had a BLAST. I got a lot of satisfaction out of learning to make contact with the ball and see how far I could get it going on the driving range. My instructor Bob Hite was VERY patient.
So, I got to thinking what a GREAT father’s day gift it would be to take dad for a couple of days of golf to PGA National Resort and Spa. For LESS than the cost of a round of golf at many courses he can play unlimited golf, and you get a great vacation at a beautiful and elegant resort and spa.

Just a hint for the ladies – they have an AMAZING spa, great pools, and The Gardens Mall is very close for some GREAT shopping.
