The PGA National Resort, a resort that includes half a dozen golf courses and a 360-room hotel, is preparing to launch a $ 100 million property-wide renovation in early 2022.
Updates include new dining options, new golf courses, updated lineup, and updated guest rooms and common areas.
Located in the gardens of Palm Beach, South Florida, the private rooms and villas have been redesigned by KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group in a style reminiscent of 1960s Palm Beach, with wingback headboards, vintage black and white palm leaf wallpaper and plush carpet.

The relaunch of the property includes two new signature restaurants, both run by former competitors of Bravo’s âTop Chefâ. Season 13 winner Jeremy Ford designed the Butcher’s Club concept with a menu that includes a raw bar section in addition to a selection of dry-aged cuts of meat, paired with an innovative cocktail menu and an extensive collection of wines.
Honeybelle, from Season 9 alum Lindsay Autry, will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner in indoor and outdoor seating areas with a menu that pays homage to South Florida beach cafes.
Other culinary additions include Birdie’s Diner, which serves mid-20th-century American classics with some South Florida influence, such as pina colada pancakes and a Cuban panini; Sugarplume, a specialized chocolate factory; and Big Drip, a retro ice cream parlor.
The lobby has been redone with two chandeliers resembling upside down palm leaves and period pieces from the 1960s, including a light cream semicircle sofa, frayed ottomans, and retro chairs in colors and patterns. varied and designs ranging from gold and pink to cheetah and burnt orange.
The lobby bar with dark burgundy and black marbled counter is illuminated in its center by a faux banyan tree bordered by over 1,500 LED lights.
The spa was redesigned by design group V Starr founded by Venus Williams, and the 40,000-square-foot facility includes mineral pools, two Himalayan salt rooms, a hair and nail salon, a 1950s-style hair salon, wet and dry treatment rooms, outdoor patio and bar, and retail store.
The golf resort’s previous 90 holes of five courses have also been enhanced with two new courses designed by Andy Staples which use and replace the old “Squire” course. “The Staple” offers nine holes ranging from 60 to 130 yards with a variety of courses that can be played by seasoned golfers as well as novices. “The Match” is a new course designed for match rather than stroke play with grass cut at fairway height throughout the playing area to emphasize ground play and minimum risk.
The new Banyan Buddies Kids Club offers all-day programming in a jungle-style play space.
The PGA National Resort also offers a sports and racquet club with 19 tennis courts and 40,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space and over 20,000 square feet of outdoor space.
Additional amenities are planned for customers in 2022, including a new members’ club and an aquatic complex with several water games.
