Travel Options - Airports

When flying to the West Palm Beach area, there are a few airports to choose from: West Palm Beach, Ft Lauderdale, or Miami

The Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) is less than 30 minutes from the PGA National Resort.

If you choose to fly into Miami (MIA) or Fort Lauderdale (FLL), there is a commuter rail line linking Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach called the Tri-Rail (https://www.tri-rail.com/).  

Tri-Rail stations are accessible at each of the three airports.  So, if you fly into either Fort Lauderdale or Miami, you can take a train to a West Palm Beach station and then catch a taxi, Uber or Lyft ride from there to the PGA National Resort.
