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 the Dye’s Valley Course, host of the Web.com Tour Championship. Architect Pete Dye designed both golf courses, with The Stadium Course being the most recognizable thanks to the intimidating par-3, 17th hole that features the famed island green.
The creation of TPC Sawgrass as host to THE PLAYERS was based on several unique concepts:
- It would be the permanent home of THE PLAYERS, and it would be owned by the PGA TOUR players.
- 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.
- Prior to the construction of the TPC, nearly all of the big tournaments were played at private clubs where the average fan rarely had a chance to play. The TPC would be a course of great design and character that would be accessible to all golf fans.
The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass was built in 1982 to host THE PLAYERS Championship and be the permanent Home of THE PLAYERS Championship. As the first true “Stadium Course,” it was designed to improve the overall on-site fan experience.

With the same standards of excellence found at The Stadium Course, but a quieter, unassuming feel, Dye’s Valley Course rounds out a complete experience at TPC Sawgrass.

THE PLAYERS Stadium Course
My favorite course as design, Pete Dye did an exceptional job at Sawgrass, you can't put a but on the design.
Each hole has something that makes it special the placement of the bunkers, the decision of the club for the tee shot, the hazards... The end is much harder than it seems, the 16th hole is very narrow and the left area of the Green is very small entering the wate…
Best of the best. Wir wollten immer mal das weltberühmte Insel Green 17 spielen. Die ganze Anlage ist Top. Pflege, Service, Dienstleistung alles vom feinsten. Sehr zu empfehlen wenn man in der Gegend ist. Nicht ganz günstig.
Designen är enastående. Detta är en bana som verkligen skiljer agnar från vete och du ställs gång på gång inför roliga slag.
Här bjuds också på smått magiska träningsmöjligheter, vilket ju ska vara fallet på en plats som denna.
Tyvärr var servicen ingen höjdare i restaurangen - vilket är synd när man pyntar 400 dollar i greenfee.
16-18 kommer jag minnas resten av livet…
