PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.(Perfect Golf Today)1/15/15/–– PGA National Resort & Spa – home of the PGA TOUR Honda Classic, five championship golf courses and world-class amenities – announces a new multimillion-dollar renovation to continue the improvement and enhancement of its property.

Myriad enhancements to the legendary South Florida destination have already been completed in its initial $100 million revitalization. Of particular note is the Jack Nicklaus-led renovation of the acclaimed Champion Course. Highlights include a major re-grassing with cutting-edge Celebration Bermuda and reworking of the 14th hole to strengthen the run-up to the famous “Bear Trap” (Holes, 15, 16, 17).

Scheduled for completion later this year are three impressive additions to the legendary South Florida destination:
