About PGA National - Champions Course

Originally opened in 1981, The Champion Course was comprehensively redesigned by Jack Nicklaus and his team in 2002 as well as a 2014 redesign of layout's stout par-4 14th hole which leads to the famous "Bear Trap" - a series of three demanding holes (Nos. 15,16 and 17) which many considered the toughest stretch in the game. Now The Champion is even better than ever with significant improvements implemented in 2018 by Nicklaus Design. Most notably, the putting surfaces will return to the native design Jack Nicklaus and his team implemented 16 years ago. The green complexes were re-built, shaped and grassed with Tif-Eagle Bermuda. This results in seamless transitions from green surrounds to putting surfaces and tighter relationships with respect to greenside bunkers. The changes allow for consistency in a variety of weather conditions and make one of the true "bucket list" courses in the game even more compelling. The mighty Champion Course has long been feared and revered as one of the most challenging in the game. One of the premier tests of golf is now even stronger.
