THE PLAYERS Stadium Course

The creation of TPC Sawgrass as host to THE PLAYERS was based on several unique concepts: First, it would be the permanent home of THE PLAYERS, and it would be owned by the players. Second, the course and surrounding areas would be built with spectators in mind. It would be the first true “Stadium Course,” designed and built to improve the overall on-site fan experience. Third, the TPC would be a course of great design and character that would be accessible to all golf fans.

Working with golf course architect Pete Dye, Commissioner Deane Beman wanted a course design that would favor no particular player or style of play. To meet this goal, an extensive effort was made to design a balanced golf course. There had to be a selection of short, medium and long holes within the categories of par-3s, par-4s and par-5s. There had to be both right and left doglegs. The course routing was laid out so no two consecutive holes ever played in the same direction.

TPC Valley course more playable for everybody Each of the three times I came off the Stadium course at the TPC Sawgrass, I swore I might quit the game. Every time I played the Valley, I vowed I'll play more often. That's the difference between the two TPC courses at Sawgrass. The Stadium is a modern monster; the Valley course a fun and enjoyable experience. All of the troubles lurks to one side, right or left, giving average players like me a chance to bail out if necessary. The Valley doesn't have the epic finish of the Stadium course, but that's probably a good thing. The Valley is good enough to host pro tournaments without all the dirty tricks of Pete and Alice Dye.

Bucket List course checked off Do yourself, your loved ones and your ancestors a favor and play the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. This is easily one of the best courses in all of Florida with great golf from the moment you step out of your car. While the price tag is steep, the experience is worth it. Despite the difficulty of the course, the pace of play was good - what took so long was my playing partners and I trying to hang on for dear life going around the course. I know the back nine holes are the most famous, but holes 2, 4, 5, 6 and 9 are probably some of the finest constructed holes on the entire property. Do yourself and everyone on the course a favor... play as fast as you can 16-17! Take the visuals in with your eyes and not with a camera the entire two holes. I get it... it's a really cool hole but you don't need 64 photos of yourself on the 17th tee. also, get aggressive on the shot - trust your yardage and try to make birdie. That way you get to go to the drop zone like I did - and play 2 tee shots on the famous 17th. February 28, 2014
Felt a little cheated I don't get a chance to play high end courses very often, so I was really excited about playing the Valley course. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. To start with, there was heavy equipment operating and construction going on virtually every hole, cart paths were blocked with no clear indication of where to drive your carts or move about the course. The course conditions themselves were only fair with the grass cut right down to the dirt, and as slick of greens as I have ever played on. I probably drove by 5 or 6 courses on the way that were less than half as expensive, and in better shape. I really expected a lot more, and I think the staff should have been up front about course conditions and all of the construction going on. February 20, 2014
Exactly what I expected I am now able to check something else off my Bucket List after playing the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. After attending The Players Championship a few times, I had always wanted to play the famous course, especially the island green at #17, and it did not disappoint. I clearly did not have the chops to play this course competitively, however our group caddy did his best to help the entire group with tips and advice, especially around the greens. If you ever have the opportunity to play the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, do not hesitate. February 20, 2014
Great Course I played the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium course the week after the Players Tournament. The grand stands on 16 and 17 were still up. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had on a golf course. I birdied 16 and when making the walk around the pond to the 17th tee box was an extremely cool experience. I would suggest everyone to go play the Stadium course at least once. February 20, 2014
Dye's Valley - Not worth the money Very disappointed that the staff at the clubhouse or the starter didn't bother to mention that there was ongoing construction on almost every hole. Machinery running everywhere, workers around several greens. Cart paths blocked and no signage or even a clue about which way to go in some places. Greens and fairways were not in the best of condition, even allowing for it being mid-February. Definitely a challenging layout and it could have been fun to play on some other day but I'll spend my dollars elsewhere next time. February 19, 2014
TPC Gem Great course near the beaches just south of Jacksonville. A Must play when in the area and a really challenging lay out. February 19, 2014
Top notch Florida course that challenges golfers at every level This Pete Dye challenges players of every style and caliber. The unique design rarely has two consecutive holes running in the same direction, making wind a constant factor to golfers at every level. The 17th hole and its island green has a cool 'stadium' atmosphere about it; it left quite an impression on me as I was finishing up my round. I'll definitely be returning! February 19, 2014
