PGA National Resort & Spa  has retained Staples Golf Design (SGD),  a golf course architecture firm based in Scottsdale, Arizona, to lead a reimagination of the Squire Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

One of five distinct 18-hole courses, the Squire Course was originally designed by Tom and George Fazio and has not had any significant updates since opening.

SGD formed in 2002, provides sustainable golf course design services and is known for timeless, strategic design combined with efficient, natural elements. 

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with the new ownership of PGA National on the Squire course,” says Andy Staples, president, SGD. “I’ve watched tournaments on this property since I was a kid, so it’s a real honor to be working here. We’ll be coming up with an innovative solution that address golf’s future, and that’s really exciting. You’re going to want to keep an eye on this project.”

SGD projects have won national awards from numerous major golf publications across the country, and continue to be listed on the “Best Places to Play” in their respective states. Recent awards include two Design Excellence Awards from the American Society of Golf Course Architects, a “Best Renovation of Year” award by Golf Inc. magazine, a “Golf Development of the Year” award by Golf Inc. magazine, and a “Best New” Award by Golf Digest.

The reimagination of the Squire Course will be overseen by Nick Mazzella of Mazzella Partnership, a Charlotte, N.C. based golf course renovation project management company.
