PGA Golf ClubPORT ST. LUCIE, Florida (PGA of America) — Signaling a new era for PGA Golf Club, an impressive, contemporary 20,000-square-foot clubhouse is now complete. Designed by Tom Hoch Design, the facility has more than doubled in size from the original clubhouse, which first opened its doors in 1996.

The new clubhouse features elements of style throughout the building that reflect the PGA of America’s rich history. As a result, the PGA has relocated some notable trophies and artifacts that trace its nearly 100 years to the new “PGA Gallery” area of the PGA Golf Club Clubhouse. This is highlighted by a display of the major Championship trophies of golf, including the original Wanamaker Trophy, the prize for winning the PGA Championship. In addition, the Senior PGA Championship’s Alfred S. Bourne Trophy and the Vardon Trophy, with its iconic overlapped hands sculpture, are both prominently displayed.
