History

Formerly The South Course, it is the first golf course named in honor of Rodman Wanamaker, the New York City department store magnate who in 1916 inspired the birth of The PGA of America.

Opened in 1996, The Wanamaker Course at The PGA Golf Club has hosts a variety of events each year including PGA Winter Championships, PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship, Assistant PGA Professional Championship, and the PGA Jones Cup.

A classic Florida layout, The Wanamaker Course is set against a backdrop of wetlands, palm trees and palmettos, and is considered one of Florida ‘s most beautiful courses. There is a premium on the tee shot to set up a good approach shot to the well-guarded greens.
