At many of Florida’s top golf resorts, the practice facilities are almost as impressive as the signature courses. From expansive practice ranges to multiple putting greens to on-site teaching facilities featuring great teachers and technology, the resort experience isn’t just about 18 (or 36 or 54) great holes anymore.
It’s more and more frequently about … cue Allen Iverson voice … practice.
And when it comes to smart practice, Port St. Lucie’s PGA Village kicks it up a notch.
The acclaimed golf destination boasts three championship courses from Pete Dye and Tom Fazio, but its PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance is just as much of a calling card for visitors.
The PGA CLP, as it’s called down there, is a 35-acre facility with 100 full swing stations and nine bunker types to simulate play from all around the world.
Now that’s attention to detail – bunkers with different sand. No matter where your home course is, you’ll find a bunker that harkens to home. (And, of course, most of us could dearly use some extra bunker practice time).
Holly Taylor, the PGA CLP director, was named by U.S. Kids Golf as one of the game’s “Top 50 Kids Teachers,” so you know PGA Village isn’t just for adult golf fanatics.
Two-day PGA of America Golf Schools start at $835 and include a comprehensive swing and game analysis from a PGA professional, lunch and golf at PGA Golf Club.
