PGA National is home to the Bear Trap, one of the most famous three-hole stretches on the PGA Tour and one of the best-known golf courses in the United States and the world, and it's home to one of the best golf tournaments on the planet. The Palm Beach-area course has some of the most recognizable holes in the world, including the 15th through 17th holes on the Champion Course.

Not only is PGA National an incredible golf course, but it is also home to the PGA Tour's 2024 Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches, which kicks off the Florida Swing at the former home of the PGA of America.

Naturally, a resort hosting a big golf tournament on the PGA Tour leads fans to wonder where PGA National is located.
