The Jack Nicklaus-designed Champion Course at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., boosted its ranking on Golfweek's 2017 "Best Resort Courses" list, an annual compilation of America's finest facilities.
The Champion home to the PGA Tour's Honda Classic since 2007, was ranked No. 72 on the 2017 list, up four spots from last year's poll. Hundreds of Golfweek "best-of" raters review courses throughout the country to identify top courses using criteria ranging from course conditioning to design quality.
"It's gratifying to see the Champion climb the top 100 resort-course rankings as it critically validates its place among elite golf venues," said Greg Saunders, PGA National's vice president, managing director. "PGA Tour professionals and amateurs alike love teeing it up on our famed Jack Nicklaus design, and this Golfweek distinction reinforces their good judgment."
The Champion is one of five award-winning courses at PGA National Resort & Spa. Additionally, three world-class golf academies are available for members and guests to take their games to the next level.
