The Honda Classic: A Champion Lineup 
Congratulations to the 2020 Honda Classic Champion Sungjae Im. Find out who will walk away with the Waterford trophy in 2021 when the top international players compete in The Honda Classic at the PGA National Resort & Spa

Where is The Honda Classic Played?
The PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens has been the permanent home to The Honda Classic since 2007. The club consists of five elegant 18-hole courses, but The Honda Classic is played on the distinctive Champion Course every year. The course was redesigned in 2014 and is now famous for “The Bear Trap,” a challenging three-hole stretch designed by the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus.
 

 
How Do I Get Honda Classic Tickets?
Purchase tickets for The Honda Classic in advance online and save with options from single-day, full-week, premium parking,  wine- and party packs and group packages. Consider upgrading your credentials for premium viewing of the “Bear Trap” holes or the 18th, where the action really heats up. Ultimate fans and high-rollers will want Champions Club credentials, with views overlooking the 18th green and premium culinary and beverages included.
 
Kids 15 and under get free admission when accompanied by a ticketed adult.  Active duty, reservists, retirees, their registered dependents and non-retired veterans are offered complimentary tickets Thursday through Sunday, and can enjoy premium seating and lunch at the United Technologies Patriots Outpost. Staying on-site at the PGA National Resort & Spa is a worthwhile luxury, allowing access to three outdoor swimming pools and a full-service spa. Here you can simply wake up and stroll over to the tournament from your AAA Four-Diamond accommodations. If the resort is sold out or doesn’t meet the budget, there are plenty of nearby hotels in lovely Palm Beach Gardens.
 

Honda Classic Fan Experience
In 2020, over 200,000 fans will create one of golf’s most exhilarating atmospheres, lining the Champion Course in awe of the smooth swings of golf’s best. One hundred forty-four players will compete for this year’s $7 million purse.
 
The Honda Classic is actually a big party with a side of amazing golf. Of course, that means there are plenty of places to pick up an adult beverage around the course. The Waterford Club adjacent to the 17th green offers premium stadium seating and mixed drinks; the Goslings Bear Trap (upgraded credentials required) features direct sightlines to the “Bear Trap” holes and pours Goslings’ tasty rum. And don’t forget to stop by the Lilly Pulitzer Lounge, which offers patrons a place to shop a wide array of Lilly Pulitzer products, enjoy signature beverages and catch a front row seat to the golf action on the 10th hole. 
 
After the last putt drops, the party continues on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as live music kicks things up at the Terrace overlooking the 9th green. Friday and Saturday nights end with a bang at the Tire Kingdom Fireworks Spectacular.
 
Aspiring little golfers can pick up some pointers at the Junior Clinic, where PGA Tour professionals offer golf tips and stories from their travels. On Saturday, enjoy all the fun perks of Family Day presented by Tire Kingdom!  Watch as the youngsters get excited meeting their favorite players. The first 1,500 kids will get oversized golf balls for autographs from the players in the Autograph Zone.

Pro-Ams, Invitationals & More
In addition to the PGA play, The Honda Classic features multiple days of pro-am tournaments, forums and invitationals. On Tuesday, Feb. 25, the Women's Leadership Forum returns for its 9th year. The next day, professional and amateur players team up to compete in the Honda Classic Cares Pro-Am, with proceeds benefiting the local Children's Healthcare Charity.  And on Monday, March 1, you can take to the Champion Course and experience what the pros do at the First Tee Invitational.
