The Haig Course at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach will be undergoing extensive renovation from April 2 through November 1. Once the course reopens, it will be rebranded as “The Fazio Course.”
According to Century Golf Partners CEO Jim Hinckley, the operating partner of PGA National in Palm Beach, “The Fazio Course will join four other championship layouts here at PGA National making for 90 holes of exceptional golf.”
The course was originally designed in 1980 in tribute to five-time PGA champion Walter Hagen. The original designers were George and Tom Fazio and the third generation Fazio to work on the new course, Tom Fazio II will work on new course.
Tom Fazio II said, “That my great uncle, uncle and I have all had a hand in developing this beautiful course at PGA National will stand as a proud testament to the Fazio family legacy.”
The original par-72 routing will remain intact and the renovation will also include reconfigured tee-boxes, equipment of advances and player-friendly tees added in accordance with “Tee it Forward” initiative.
During the renovation, the PGA National’s four other championship courses will be open for play and no disruption of available tee-times are expected.
