great conditions

course is nicely kept. tee to green conditions were excellent. greens rolled ~10+. we played a practice round for a tournament in 2 weeks and were excited to come back. to play youll need to be a member, guest, stay at the resort with appropriate package, or sign up for a tournament there. a+ on the superintendent and crew.

Fazio - Not Worth the Money

Florida golf is super cheap in the summer and goes through the roof as soon as the snow birds return.  I played the Fazio Course at PGA National, in Palm Beach in August with a nice group from Meet Up and paid $40+ and returned in October 29, 2016, only to get a group corporate rate at $175.  Yikes! </span> The Fazio course was in good shape and pace of play was terrific, but it wasn’t worth $175.  I figure I could have played 3-5 rounds at other comparable courses for the price of that round at PGA. The weather was hot and rained a bit in August, and in October it was overcast, low 80s with a pleasant breeze.  The course is remarkably straight forward and not overly difficult. Water comes into play on a number of holes, I found the water on several.  I was in the bunkers more than the water, thankfully.  Florida golf is super cheap in the summer and goes through the roof as soon as the snow birds return.  I played the Fazio Course at PGA National, in Palm Beach in August with a nice group from Meet Up and paid $40+ and returned in October 29, 2016, only to get a group corporate rate at $175.  Yikes!  Finishing 18, we headed for the club house to be greeted by an over-priced menu and served with plastic cups and tableware.  Really, a resort can’t afford to use silverware and glasses.  But adding insult to injury ($$$), the Nachos are made with Velveeta Cheese - unbelievable! The PGA Fazio Course at Palm Beach, FL gets a triple bogey rating!

Classic Resort Fare

The Fazio Course at PGA National is classic resort fare. It was in good shape, the weather was beautiful and the pace of play was good. The course is not overly difficult. There is water on a number of holes, but it's not overwhelming. The front nine twists and turns a lot so it could be easy to get in trouble with the many doglegs. The back nine is more gentle with the bends. Be very careful with the drive on 18, there's water all the way up the left and basically no buffer between the fairway and the hazard.
