110 Championship Way
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082
TPC Sawgrass offers two championship golf courses that are open for the public to enjoy – THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, Home of THE PLAYERS Championship, and Pete Dye’s Valley Course.
Born from the dream of then PGA TOUR Commissioner Deane Beman to create a special and unique host site for THE PLAYERS Championship, this club is owned by the players of the PGA TOUR.
The course and surrounding areas were built with spectators in mind, as the Championship Course was the first true “Stadium Course,” designed and built to improve the overall on-site fan experience.
Prior to the construction of the TPC, nearly all the great tournaments were played at private clubs where the average fan rarely had a chance to play. TPC is a course of great design and character, accessible to all golf fans.
THE PLAYERS Championship Course
Length: 7,245 yards
Built in 1982, the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass was designed to not favor any particular player or style of play. The result is a truly balanced course, as players find a selection of short, medium and long holes within the categories of par-3s, par-4s and par-5s; both right and left doglegs; and a course routing laid out so no two consecutive holes ever play in the same direction.
With its signature island green on the par-3, 17th hole being one of the most recognized in golf, this legendary track has captured the imagination of golf fans all over the world and is consistently named among the top golf courses worldwide. While the 17th hole gets a lot of attention, the 18th hole on this golf course is a formidable finishing hole.
Pete Dye’s Valley Course
Length: 6,847 yards
Designed by Pete Dye, Bobby Weed and player consultant Jerry Pate (1982 PLAYERS Champion), Dye’s Valley at TPC Sawgrass is adjacent to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course.
The golf course features large greens and an abundance of water, which sprawls across rolling hills and valleys. During a renovation in 2006, more than 300 trees were added to the course and several bunkers were reconstructed to make them more challenging. One of the most notable holes is the 350-yard third hole. What this par-4 lacks in length, it makes up for in difficulty with a fairway that slopes sharply to the left and a tightly manicured collection area that is 12 feet below the level of the green.
