Course Enhancements, New Pickleball Center Demonstrate Commitment of Thriving Golf Community
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (Feb. 4, 2019) – PGA Golf Club – the PGA of America’s premier 54-hole facility – and KOLTER HOMES, a leader in developing next-generation, highly-amenitized, master-planned active adult communities in the southeastern U.S., announce enhancements for 2019 that demonstrate a commitment to the Port St. Lucie golf club and community.

Known as the “Ultimate Golf Destination,” PGA Golf Club renovated its three decorated courses – designed by Tom Fazio and Pete Dye – over the past two years. Those enhancements included renovated bunkers on its famed Wanamaker Course and a new drainage system to parts of the layout. On the Dye Course, popular cart wear spots were updated, making traffic control throughout the golf course more efficient. The Ryder Course reopened in 2017 to rave reviews following a renovation project that enhanced the greens and surrounding areas.

Also ongoing at PGA Golf Club are a limited number of Premier Seasonal Membership products, which offer benefits such as unlimited golf, Member exclusive dining with food and beverage discounts, private cart Member access discounts for all Member-owned registered carts, and accompanied, unaccompanied and immediate family guest rates. All Memberships include a spouse or significant other, and any children 25 years of age or younger living at home, in school or in the military.

In 2021, PGA Golf Club will host the PGA Professional Championship on the Wanamaker and Ryder Courses. The tournament, which will occur in the spring of 2021, will be comprised of players who advance from the 41 PGA Section Championships, along with past champions. All four rounds will be broadcast live on The Golf Channel.

“At PGA Golf Club we offer everything needed for a wonderful golf experience, and we are very excited about the outlook for 2019,” says Jeremy Wiernasz, General Manager and Director of Golf Operations. “Not only will do we offer three of the best courses you’ll find anywhere, membership at PGA Golf Club has its privileges, and we invite everyone to join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Neighboring PGA Golf Club, Cresswind at PGA Village Verano is a gated, 55+ neighborhood that is part of the KOLTER HOMES portfolio. Cresswind resides within the larger gated, PGA Village Verano community and is designed to help residents live better, longer based on the pillars of fitness, nutrition and relationships.

Earlier this year, PGA Village Verano broke ground on the PGA Village Verano Pickleball Center, giving both the community and the brand-new Cresswind neighborhood access to South Florida’s largest private pickleball complex. The facility will have 27 pickleball courts, including a center-court for tournaments, multiple viewing areas with spectator seating, and an event lawn with pavilion area. The outdoor arena is projected to open in late summer.

“PGA Village Verano is the perfect location for individuals that want to enjoy the best of all worlds with resort-style amenities and award-winning golf,” says John Manrique Vice President of Marketing for KOLTER HOMES. “We’re excited to bring America’s fastest growing sport, pickleball, to our PGA Village Verano and Cresswind communities.”

Cresswind at PGA Village Verano will also open the Cresswind Oasis, a pool and sundeck accessible only to its residents. Construction for the first round of Cresswind houses is on track, allowing for move-in to start this spring. Combining luxury and low-maintenance living, the neighborhood offers residents homes starting in the mid $200s complemented by a rich portfolio of resident amenities.

Cresswind residents have full access to PGA Village Verano’s 27,000-square-foot social clubhouse and 13,000-square-foot fitness center. These fitness and social centers offer a wide array of social and wellness programs, full-time lifestyle and activities directors, and state-of-the-art facilities including a resort-style pool; tennis, basketball and bocce ball courts and indoor Junior Olympic pool. Upon signing of a new house, residents receive a social membership to PGA Golf Club, and can become a golf member for a reduced membership fee.
