Andy Staples, ASGCA (Staples Golf Design), has been retained for design work on the Squire Course at PGA National Resort & Spa at Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The course was originally designed by Tom Fazio, ASGCA, and George Fazio.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with the new ownership of PGA National on the Squire course,” says Staples. “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 innovative solutions 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, North Carolina based golf course renovation project management company.
