Welcome to TPC Sawgrass!

Home of THE PLAYERS Championship, birthplace of the TPC (Tournament Players Club) Network, and backdrop to the PGA TOUR headquarters, the TPC Sawgrass golf course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., is perhaps the world’s most famous golf course. THE PLAYERS Stadium Course sports one of the most recognizable and challenging holes on the PGA TOUR. The notorious par-3, 17th hole, features an island green that makes or breaks many a PGA TOUR pro’s round.

THE PLAYERS Stadium was built to challenge the pros like no other golf course had done before, while providing an unprecedented experience for spectators at the same time. 

Golf enthusiasts will find not one, but two PGA TOUR championship courses at the club, both designed by world-renowned architect Pete Dye. THE PLAYERS Stadium and Dye’s Valley Course offer two, perfectly balanced game experiences. The two golf courses winds through North Florida’s naturally compelling landscape.

TPC Sawgrass is not only one of the top Florida golf resorts, but it is recognized nationally by multiple golf publications as a destination. THE PLAYERS Stadium Course is ranked the No. 2 golf course in Florida by Golf Digest magazine and it ranks consistently among the Golf Digest’s top 50 golf courses in the country. (No. 41 in 2011). Golfweek honored THE PLAYERS Stadium Course as the top courses you can play in Florida and ranked it ninth among the Best Resort Courses in 2011.

Dye’s Valley, host of the Web.com Tour Championship since 2013, is commonly referred to as the “Valley Course” and is just under 6,900 yards. The golf course previously served as the home for the Senior Players Championship from 1988-1990. Prior to hosting the inaugural Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open (Web.com Tour event) in 2010, the Valley Course underwent some renovations during the winter of 2009-10 to improve drainage. Dye’s Valley was ranked No. 24 in Golfweek’s 2011 rankings of Best Courses You Can Play in Florida.
