Because Playing Together Is Better

We’ve been waiting for you, champ. Bring your buddies, besties, and colleagues and challenge yourselves on PGA National’s five TOUR-worthy courses, including the revered Champion course — home to The Cognizant Classic and the famous Bear Trap. (Pro tip: Bring lots of balls. The Bear Trap water penalty areas consume an average of 20,000 golf balls a year!)

Every group of eight or more players has an assigned tournament staff, led by a dedicated Tournament Coordinator, overseeing everything from tee times and custom logo gifts to post-game refreshments, instructor-led golf clinics, and glow-ball putting contests. Whether it’s eight or 500 players, our comprehensive group golf services create an experience your group will never forget.
