“Great trip with first class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

had a group outing and every activity - tee times, meals between rounds, dinners in the evening - went flawlessly. great course and great environment - no need to even leave "campus" during a several day event due to multiple courses and dining venues.

Spent 3 days at PGA with a group of 50 guys in November - was over the top. Courses and golf staff were really excellent, as usual, but the hotel (dining, bars, outside venues) was really exceptional. I've been here a few times over the last 5 years, and they've now renovated most or all of the hotel since 2011. We ate out one night and did 2 dinners at the hotel (Ironwood and a catered meal), both of which were outstanding. I've now stayed at a dozen or so golf resorts in the SE since 2008, and this was my best experience.

Over the last 10 months I have done two trips to PGA National. The first was a 30 person corporate sales outing and the second was a 50 person guys weekend. I must say that the resort did a terrific job with both outings.

On the corporate outing.. in one word I would say "simple". The corporate planning team made the three day event really simple to manage and I literally didn't have to worry about anything. We ate at all the different restaurants which made it a nice change of pace without having to leave the campus. The meeting rooms were really nice for a group our size. The golf and extra activities were simple for us to offer to our people and very easy to manage. If you are thinking about a corporate outing, definitely consider PGA National as you don't have to manage anything.

In regards to the guy trip... GPA National hit a home run. We had a 6 match - 9 hole tournament set up and the resort took care of ALL the logistics. This included tallying scores, setting up carts, switching bags, breakfast, lunches and all the drinks on the course. We ate on campus a few times and it couldn't easier. Costs can be charged to individuals or centrally taken care of. The staff is so easy to get to know and they are the first to jump on any request. Truly a great place for a guys trip.

Just had the pleasure of spending a long weekend at the PGA National Resort and Spa and wanted to comment on what a tremendous destination this is. The service from the staff was outstanding, the food was fantastic, the rooms, restaurants, and bars were top notch. This is a first class resort and a must hit destination. The golf courses were in terrific shape, and presented great challenges / fun for golfers of all handicaps. I highly recommend PGA National Resort and Spa. PS - Huge fan of the breakfast!!

i've visited several times in the past 3 years and the staff is -- without fail -- top shelf! from the golf pros to the bartenders and waitresses, the commitment to service and quality is readily apparent.

Just spent a great weekend at PGA National. It was my first time there and I will go back for sure. I played 4 of the courses and 3 were in great shape. One of the 18's looked like it was getting a lot of work done on so I assume it will be in good shape soon. The staff at the hotel was solid and very attentive. Pool looked great but I didn't get a chance to hang there. Bar was fun with a good DJ mixing it up. Top Notch all the way around.

Service, staff and amenities are First Class. Having stayed at the resort before and after the renovation, the improvements are outstanding! The golf is fantastic and Buddy Finch (tournament director) is unmatched in coordinating small and large outings. Great job again Buddy, you're the best!
