THP is pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual THP Golf Outing & Demo Day is now official. We have partnered again with what we consider to be one of the finest golf resorts in the world and that is PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL to host this great event. Before making this decision, THP worked with 2 dozen resorts about hosting this event and when it came down to it, no place could come close to touching PGA National Resort & Spa in terms of price for those coming and amenities offered for our wants and needs. Many of our readers got to experience this wonderful resort at the 1st outing, and we are pleased to be able to announce that our 2nd Annual THP Golf Outing & Demo Day is being held there again.
PGA National Resort & Spa has been recognized by numerous golf publications as one of the top resorts in the U.S. and is the only resort to host a Ryder Cup, PGA Championship, and a regular stop on the PGA TOUR (The Honda Classic).
We felt as though our 2010 Golf Outing & Demo Day was a huge success and one of the reasons for that was the incredible partner we had in this extravagant resort. If you were not able to attend the first outing, you can live through that experience in these two links both offering some insight into what exactly the trip was like.
