Rated 5 out of 5 by rdbuchan87 Great Experience!!!!
Every golf enthusiast needs to play this course at least once. It was a fantastic experience! From the practice range to the 18th green, it was an unforgettable round. Price is definitely steep, but worth it for an avid golfer who watches the Players every year and wants the full tour experience. Course was in great shape, but you can tell it gets a lot of rounds on it. I would recommend taking a forecaddie as they really help with the sight lines and finding your ball in the deep rough (sinks right to the bottom every time). Truly an unforgettable experience and I would definitely return someday!

Most horrible set up to enjoy this beautiful course. They have cart path only rule year round (even in this Florida heat) and maintain 6" inch rough for the public. Twice as long than pros play and greens were grainy and inconsistent. Took a group of 20 out on last Sunday and no one enjoyed. Two people left after just 7 holes with possible heat stroke. I can't believe they insist on cart path only when the course was dry and firm. Continually had to bring a number of clubs all the way across the fairway - then you could barely advance the ball - if you even found it in the rough.
It's a shame, as this is on so many players bucket list - and rightly so. The course is amazing, it's just not a User Friendly atmosphere. The marshal would tell us we weren't keeping up with the group in front. Well duh - they were a 3some. Pace of play would have been so much quicker if it wasn't cart path only. It's a resort course and that's where they make their money. Why wouldn't they make it more enjoyable for all of us poor schmucks that pay for this place to operate and make it more difficult when the Pros play here??? This is my 3rd time playing and I've had the same experience every time. No more.
Play somewhere else and enjoy relaxed golf, not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bryansniezek Fantastic experience!
This has been my favorite course to watch the PGA play for as long as I can remember, and was my #1 course on my golf bucket list. I finally had the opportunity to play the Stadium Course, and it did not disappoint. While I wasn't a fan of the price for 18 holes ($250), you're really paying more for an experience rather than a round of golf.
This course demands very well placed tee shots. Anything that ends up in the rough can be crippling to your score. #16, #17, #18 are the bread and butter of the course, and are the most exciting 3 holes. On the day we played, they had the pins in position #3 aka Sunday Championship locations. Very difficult to go flag hunting.
After our round, we asked about a replay rate, and the staff was able to out us on the Valley course for $50 per person!
It was likely the only time I'll ever play Sawgrass, mostly due to the price ($250-$450), but I walked away with more memories after that round than any round of golf I've ever played. What a remarkable experience! An absolute must on any golfer's bucket list.
As far as the course, they had punched the greens and fairways 3 weeks prior to our arrival, but you couldn't tell. The fairways and greens were in pristine condition.

One of those bucket list courses. Get a caddy and walk to soak in the history. Price was steep unless billed from hot deal. Must play!

What a birthday present! Terrific service, beautifully appointed facility from locker room to pro shop. Course was in superb condition and our fore caddie knew the course well and gave us top-notch advice. One of my best golf experiences to date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ctbulldawg Great course
I have had several chances to play the TPC Sawgrass but work always got in the way. After playing it in a Golf Channel AM Tour event, I was happy that I finally got to play. It is a great layout with a lot of variety in hole design and playability. You do not realize on tv how challenging a driving course this is....it is truly a "hit to a spot" course rather than "grip it and rip it". Of course the 17th and 18th are the highlight holes but there are many other memorable ones out there and a lot more variety of shots around the greens than you would imagine.
A great facility compliments the course and extremely friendly and helpful staff round out the experience. I know that it is pricey but it is worth the cost.....once.

The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass had always been on my bucklist and alas, I was given the chance to play it. From the moment you arrive at the clubhouse, it's an amazing feeling knowing one of the greatest tournaments is played here every year. The golf shop staff was extremely friendly and willing to help me make my purchase. The practice facility is phenomenal and allows you to hit about every shot you can imagine.
As for the course, most of the holes are extremely hard to recognize compared to what you see on TV. I believe the angles of the camera's on the towers don't give you a true perspective of the golf course. The holes are well designed and each hole has a uniqueness to it. You also don't realize how much undulation are on the greens.
The golf course conditions, tees, fairways, rough, and bunkers were in phenomenal condition....the greens, as we know, had a misapplication on them and some were not in the best of conditions. They have a talented maintenance crew and they left the greens a little fury to help stimulate some root growth for the grass to help repair some of the greens. They also aerified the bad portions of the greens to help them recover as well.
16, 17, and 18 are a dream to play and an experience I could never replicate.
