The official home of the PGA, Palm Beach Gardens is known for its award-winning golf courses and esteemed golf clubs.
Truth be told, Palm Beach Gardens is way more garden than it is beach. With the sandy stuff in such supply up and down South Florida, this city’s greenery is a rare treasure. PBG is inland from North Palm Beach and the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, but since MacArthur also founded Palm Beach Gardens, the park functions as the city’s unofficial slice of salty blue. However, the dominant color in this city is green. Mainly, this is in the greens of golf courses: A dozen championship courses call the area home—including PGA tour venues—and gorgeous communities surround each of them. Actually, PBG is so golf crazy that the PGA keeps its headquarters in the city. Where it’s not growing grass for putting, Palm Beach Gardens boasts towering banyans and elms, and lush tropical vegetation thrives everywhere you look.
