Stadium Course (TPC Sawgrass)
Home of the 5th Major “The Players Championship”, this Pete Dye course was built by the PGA Tour to be the permanent home of the Championship. This is the first true “Stadium course”, it was originally designed to provide an overall fan experience accessible to all fans. This course is truly balanced and does no favor any particular player or style of play. Players find a selection of short, medium and long holes which favors precision over distance. With its signature island green on the par-3 with just 137 yards, the 17th hole is one of the most recognized in golf (masterpiece by Alice Dye, wife of Pete).
- Another design by Pete Dye and Bobby Weed, is Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass, the sister track to the world-famous THE PLAYERS Stadium Course. It opened in 1987 and it has hosted the Korn Ferry Tour Championship since 2013. With design features similar to the Stadium, it has also hosted the Senior Players Championship, the NFL Golf Classic, and the final round of the Q School.
Beautifully designed and furnished, the one and two bedroom villas feature home comforts with all the facilities and services including spectacular water views, separate living spaces and exterior patios.
- Every accommodation has new with bedding, furnishings, wall and floor coverings – even the common areas have been renovated. Technologically speaking the rooms are equipped with 55-inch flat-screen and iPod docking stations. Enjoy a private balcony or terrace and options for beautiful views of the gardens and grounds of the resort.
