5. PGA National Golf Club

Champion Course (1983)

Originally designed by Tom and George Fazio, the Champion Course at Florida's PGA National was less than two years old when it hosted a hard-fought U.S. victory in the '83 Ryder Cup. It would go on to become the long-standing home of the PGA Tour's Honda Classic, though some of its hallmarks, like the infamous three-hole stretch known as the "Bear Trap," are the product of a 1990 Jack Nicklaus renovation. The resort gave its 339 guest rooms a makeover last summer as part of a $65 million upgrade, so visitors should find PGA National's off-course experience to be on par with the golf.
