Palm Beach Golf Weekend



Description:

This three night, three day stay in Palm Beach Gardens is a perfect golf getaway. Stay at the PGA Resort and Spa and enjoy some challenging golf and beautiful scenery. Visit in the high season (November-March) to get away from those wintry temperatures, but be prepared to pay the premium for a high-season stay. Spring and Summer-time is bargain-time in south Florida, so keep that in mind when planning your trip!

Day 1 - Palm Beach


Get ready for a golfer's paradise. PGA National Resort has five championship golf courses designed by top names like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen, and is the host of the Honda Classic every year. The resort has a wonderful spa as well. Go in the off-season between May 26th and Sep 30th tfor the best rates and golf deals. This trip is based on the "Guys Buddy Trip Golf Package" that the PGA Resort offers. It is a great package and includes 3 rounds of golf, cart, caddy and fees, and 3 night stay for $999 between April 7-May 25th or $445 after May 26th. Resort fees are not included. Try to fit in 18 holes the first day if you can, and dont' forget to wear your sunscreen! The sun down here is brutal and you don't want to look like a lobster for the whole weekend! For dinner head east on PGA Blvd. to "Downtown at the Gardens" the new outdoor shopping and dining area. There you can find several dining options. If you are in the mood for Mexican food, try Rosa Mexicano. If you want something close by and a bit more upscale, try Zia, in the Embassy Suites Hotel on PGA Blvd. If you want to venture out and see a little bit of the surrounding area, specifically the ritzy and posh Palm Beach Island, you can head to there and really splurge on a first-class meal at Cafe Boulud or Bice (pronounced Bee-chay). After dinner in Palm Beach, head to Cucina dell"Arte a little bar on Royal Poinciana Way for some drinks and people-watching. If you are looking for some night-life in the Palm Beach Gardens area, the "Downtown at the Gardens" area has a great sports bar called the "Yard House" or you can try a wine bar there, called "The Grape". Enjoy!

Day 2 - Jupiter


I would suggest starting this day early with an early tee time, so that you can head to the beach and at least get a glimpse of the beautful coastline southeast Florida has to offer, in the afternoon. Try any of the five beautiful courses, then head to John D. Macarthur Beach State Park. Just take PGA Bvd all the way east until you can't go any further. You will run right into it. The park is 325 acres with 2 miles of beachfront and offers nature-walks, kayaking, and if you go in the evenings in June and July, sea turtle nesting! You may be lucky enough to witness the sea turtles coming onto land to dig their nests on the beach and lay their eggs! After the beach, head back to the hotel to change and freshen up, then it's off to dinner. For the health-conscious diner, try Seasons 52 , located on the Intracoastal waterway, with great water views. I love this place because every entree on their menu is under 475 calories and prepared in a healthy way. They also have an amazing selection of wines by the glass, so I like to sample new wines whenever I go there. If you want something heartier, The Strip House at Downtown at the Gardens is also a great option, or for something casual, Abbey Road Grill and Sports Bar is not far, right off PGA Blvd and Military Trail. If you are visiting during late Feb. or March, you can catch the St. Louis Cardinals in a spring training game at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, FL, just north of Palm Beach Gardens. After dinner, if you want to head somewhere for drinks, the Waterway Cafe in Palm Beach Gardens is a great option, or The Square Grouper in Jupiter is another popular place. Both are on the water and have a very casual atmosphere. Stay hydrated, one more day of golf tomorrow!
