The Wanamaker Course at The PGA Golf Club Fact Sheet
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 (formerly The South Course) at The PGA Golf Club has hosted the 2003 PGA Cup, the Callaway Golf Senior PGA National Professional Championship, the TaylorMade-adidas Golf PGA Assistant Professional Championship, the Special Olympics National Invitational Championship and the National Minority Collegiate Championship.
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.
