Awesome Track

Was visiting the area and we booked a tee time on Dye course and it was superb. Teed off at 12pm and never saw anyone in front or behind us. Conditions were spotless and the layout is great. I thought it was a tough course but not overly punishing.

Staff are all helpful and range and practice areas are also great. I'd definitely play it again next time I'm in the area.

A real gem

My favorite course that I have played in Florida. Unfortunately we didn't get there this year. The facilities here are second to none. Great staff and practise facilities. Course is spectacular and has always been in pristine condition.

A pitch-perfect Dye, and one of Florida's best

Pete Dye's golf courses can be a bit polarizing. Count me among his most enthusiastic fans. I haven't played as many Dye courses as I'd like to, but his layout at PGA Golf Club ranks among the best I've seen.

This is a tremendously fun and well-balanced course, with a lot of characteristically intimidating features, but a surprisingly high playability factor for golfers who can keep their wits about them. The par fives, in particular, are brilliant. You can make birdies if you play smart, but the temptation to get aggressive can humble even very good players.

Pete's wife and muse Alice's influence is on display here, too. The first time I played the course, I was paired with two ladies, who both got around just fine, as there are no significant forced carries and most greens accept run-up shots, thanks in large part to the efforts of superintendent Dick Gray and his staff. All-around a wonderful experience, and a course I'm grateful to play fairly often, as it's just 30 minutes from my house.

...And Ryder makes three

The last three years have been busy for Dick Gray and his agronomy staff at PGA Golf Club. The recent completion of a renovation project at the Tom Fazio-designed Ryder Course marks the third such project in three years, and PGA Golf Club sports 54 holes of impeccably maintained, fun golf.

The Ryder stands out from its two siblings, the Wanamaker (also Fazio) and Dye Course with broad, bright-white bunkers and the largest greens on the property, each with intricate contours that create interesting and different sections for the day's hole locations. My favorite holes include the reachable par-5 4th and the demanding par-3 12th.

PGA Golf Club's best

There is no mistaking a Pete Dye course. The pot bunkers, elaborate mounding and a complete examination of one's game are a dead giveaway. In that regard, his course at PGA Golf Club is "typical," but in fact it seems to do everything just a bit better than most Dye designs. Almost every hole is individually interesting, and there are some real standout features, such as the impressively intricate bunkering down the right side of the par-5 7th and the noticeably bunker-free 14th. Given the flat swampland Dye had to work with, this course manages to be both interestingly challenging and eminently playable, as long as you can conquer the visual intimidation he throws at you.

Fazio finery in Port St. Lucie

Many multi-course facilities seem to exhibit a hierarchy among there layouts. There's usually a clear choice for #1. At the 54-hole PGA Golf Club, that's not the case. I personally have Wanamaker as the #2 course on property, just a tick behind the Dye Course. But you may well prefer the Wanamaker, and I think there's an argument for it. Tom Fazio gave the course a really nice mix of longer and shorter holes, and there turn out to be a bunch of legitimate birdie opportunities for players of all skill levels. Collection areas border many of the greens, as do some typically scooped-out Fazio bunkers. The shorter holes like 7, 8, 12 and 15 tend to be the best of the bunch, with rewards for taking on some of the danger on offer.
