Golf and Football? Absolutely, with PGA National’s Fantasy Draft Weekend Package
Too bad they didn't have this sort of deal, back when I was, you know, insane.
I'm talking about the NFL fantasy draft
. Anybody who's ever done it knows how much fun and obsessive it can be. I dropped out years ago, but PGA National
in Palm Beach Gardens has what sounds like a blast with its Fantasy Draft Weekend
package for Aug. 24-25.
The package starts at just under $300 a person and for that you get:
- Two nights' lodging – excuse me, "deluxe accommodations."
- Friday welcome reception and cocktail party.
- Saturday golf scramble with boxed lunch.
- Live draft war rooms with beer, wings and pizza.
You'll also get to interact with a "celebrity draft panel and fantasy football experts," with a Q&A session.
No word yet on who the celebrities or experts are.
Not a bad idea, throwing together two obsessions like this. PGA National is one of the top, marquee resorts in Florida and host of the PGA Tour's Honda Classic
. The well-known resort has 90 holes on five courses, including the Champion
, which is one of the best courses in Florida and one of the hardest, if you want to play it from the back tees.
