If The Palm Beaches are Florida’s Golf CapitalⓇ, then Palm Beach Gardens is the jewel in the crown. This is, after all, the hometown of The Professional Golfers Association of America. Just inland from the coast (but still close enough to smell the ocean air), Palm Beach Gardens invites you to walk in the footsteps of legends on some of the best courses in the game.
At the storied PGA National Resort & Spa, you’ll find five championship courses that are as challenging as they are picturesque. The Champion – first designed by Tom and George Fazio and recently reimagined by Jack Nicklaus – ranks as the most difficult course in Florida. Each winter, the course draws the world’s top players to compete in the Honda Classic, a premier event on the PGA TOUR.
Shop like a pro in Palm Beach Gardens, with a retail scene that rivals the golf. The Gardens Mall has high-end department stores and runway-ready designer labels, while the open-air Downtown at the Gardens offers more than 50 boutiques, restaurants and a movie theater. Still more retail therapy awaits at Legacy Place, PGA Commons and Mainstreet at Midtown.
