PGA National Honored In Golf World's "100 Best Golf Shops for 2011"
(PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.) -- PGA National Resort & Spa -- home of the PGA TOUR Honda Classic -- today announces Golf World has honored the legendary destination with inclusion in its "100 Best Golf Shops for 2011."

As part of the $65 million comprehensive reinvention of the distinguished 379-room Florida property, the 2,200-square-foot golf shop serves four onsite resort and championship courses. Innovative features include separate check-in desks for guests and private members, allowing exceptional customer service. Granite countertops, contemporary carpeting and subdued effective lighting showcase a thoroughly modern décor with ample room for product displays.

"Our golf shop renovation is a prime example of our commitment to continuing to provide our guests a superior resort and member experience," says Joel Paige, Vice President and Managing Director. "Whether enjoying the ease of checking in for your round, utilizing our TOUR quality practice facilities and teaching academies, or trying to tame the mighty Bear Trap on The Champion, a golf vacation here at PGA National is hard to beat."

In addition to world-class golf, PGA National's enhanced amenities include "Waters of the World," a collection of outdoor mineral pools from the healing waters of the Earth's most treasured locations. The resort's picturesque zero-entry pool -- located centrally to the hotel -- is a refreshing, tropical retreat perfect for a couple's get-away or family fun. Dining options include the sophisticated contemporary iBAR and elegant ambiance of Ironwood Grille - both featuring exciting new menus from Chef Gordon Maybury.
