The PGA National Resort & Spa; Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

You don’t have to be an avid golfer to enjoy and appreciate the blissful beauty and sophisticated luxury of the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

This legendary property only requires a renewed sense of self and purpose. An attitude adjustment is in order – where mastering the art of relaxation often takes precedence over mastering the game of golf.

Located just a short 30 minute car ride to South Florida’s most magnificent beaches and 20 minutes to bustling Palm Beach, golf is just among the PGA National’s many perks.

Don’t get me wrong – the PGA National’s famed courses featuring 90 holes of championship golf are revered and considered by many to be hallowed ground. But from this Diva’s perspective, PGA should really stand for Professional Girls-Getaway Adventure.

With a 40,000 square foot European Spa facility on-site…need I say more!

Sweet Self-Indulgence was never this easy and guilt-free!

Your loved one, the aspiring circuit pro, will be in heaven playing the manicured greens while you suffer (poor baby!) soaking in spa’s famous soothing mineral-rich pools – aptly named “Waters of the World”.

You enter the inner sanctum of the spa. Breathe…Inhale…Release. A healthier happier you awaits! The restorative experience begins with the Spa’s Peppermint Pick Me Up Facial that gently exfoliates and brightens the skin. Afterwards, you retreat to the spa lounge for 20 minutes of restful meditation followed by a light and healthy gourmet lunch poolside. The afternoon ends with a relaxing Lomi Lomi Massage – an ancient Hawaiian healing treatment – perfect relief for stress and a tired body.

You are rejuvenated and ready to for a unique 19th Hole cocktail- the PGA-tini- at the PGA National’s trendy iBar. The night continues with savory and sumptuous surprises at the Ironwood Steak & Seafood restaurant. A sophisticated setting, a fresh and  flavorful menu, and a wine cellar stocked with over 350 top-shelf wines will delight even the most discerning of palates.

The perfect day transforms into a starried night.

You gaze at the brilliant sky on iBar’s outdoor veranda with nightcap in hand and a smile on your face. You ponder the possibilities of your next golf escape. Yes, you definitely need to sharpen your skills. Ahh… a few more (spa) sessions will do the trick. And, thanks to PGA National Resort, you are well on your way to mastering the game – without ever picking up a club.
