Legends and Legendary
As in the past, spring brings golfing greats to The Palm Beaches - Florida's Golf Capital®. From February 24 - March 2, The Champion Course at The PGA National Resort & Spa will once again host the celebrated Honda Classic, a premier event on the PGA TOUR.
The likes of Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy have competed for purses of more than $5 million at Honda Classic. The infamous Bear Trap, which spans three demanding holes on the Champion’s course is known to have “one of the toughest stretches in golf,” according to USA Today and is considered by the PGA TOUR to be the toughest course in Florida. It's a must-play on every avid golfer's list.
There's even more to do after the last putt has drained the cup. Listen to some tunes with the After Play Concert Series, see explosive fireworks and be sure to bring the budding golfers to the Kids Zone - or be a kid yourself inside the Autograph Zone.
Rocco Mediate just celebrated a birthday and is ready to celebrate again as he defends his official PGA Champions Tour Title at the Allianz Championship February 3-9, at the Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton.
