The FCWT will be played at three golf courses:
The Haig Course - Designed by Tom Fazio, the Haig Course was the first to open for play at PGA National Resort & Spa. At 6,806 yards, the Haig is the second-longest course at PGA National and has the highest difficulty rating from the standard men's (white) and ladies' (red) tees.
The Champ Course - The Champion Course, Showcasing The Famous "Bear Trap" Originally designed by Tom Fazio for major tournament play, the Champion Course was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1990. "The Bear Trap" by Nicklaus -- statistically have all been among the Top 10 Most Difficult Holes on the Senior PGA Tour.
The Squire - Designed by Tom Fazio, the Squire is the shortest and the most exacting of the courses at PGA National Resort & Spa. Tom Fazio referred to the Squire as "the thinking man's course". The golfer is required to test his or her accuracy with fairway woods and long irons from many tees -- and the smaller greens demand precise iron shots. In addition, the Squire has several doglegs to test the longer hitter's control. Success or failure on the doglegs will make or break your round.
