The Fazio

The Perfect Layout for Every Skill Level

Originally designed as a tribute to five-time PGA champion Walter Hagen, The Fazio golf course pairs classic architecture with modern advances. It’s an ideal balance where single-digit golfers will be fully challenged, while those with higher handicaps are in for a great of entertaining resort golf. The par-5 4th hole — easily one of the most grueling and difficult of all of PGA National’s 90 holes — is enough to make even a PGA TOUR pro blush.

Fazio History in the Making

The Fazio is a reinvention of The Haig, PGA National’s original 18-hole course that opened in 1980. The Haig was designed by George and Tom Fazio in tribute to five-time PGA champion Walter Hagen, and its renovation was led by third-generation designer Tom Fazio II, who emphasized modernizing the course layout.

While the original par-72 routing remains intact, the renovation improved the classic golf architecture with modern advances, including:

  • A 70% increase in total green surface to 2.5 acres, grassed with TifEagle on the greens and Celebration Bermuda grass on tees and fairways
  • Reconfigured tee boxes and bunkers
  • Player-friendly tees allowing the course to be played at 3,255 and 4,187 yards in accordance with the popular “Tee it Forward” initiative sponsored by the PGA and USGA

Fazio II himself believes his renovation achieved “that ideal balance where single-digit golfers will be fully challenged while higher handicaps will have a layout ideal for a day of enjoyable resort golf.”
