Things to Do

TPC Sawgrass is the golfing capital of Northeastern Florida. This world-class golf destination features two exceptional courses alongside the headquarters of the PGA Tour. The Players Stadium Course was completed in 1982 and has hosted the prestigious Players Championship every year since. Golf Digest ranks The Players Stadium Course as the second-best golf course in Florida and the 48th best course in the United States. The challenging Dye’s Valley Course is ranked the 21st best course in Florida by Golfweek.

The Player Championship takes place on the Players Stadium Course in May. With a prize fund of $12.5 million in 2019, The Players has one of the largest purses in golf. The top 50 ranked golfers in the world typically participate in this PGA Tour tournament every year. Past winners include Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Jack Nicklaus. Known as the Island Green, the Players course’s 17th hole has been called the most famous golf hole. In 2001, Tiger Woods’ sensational performance on the 17th hole became legendary to golf fans as the “better than most” putt. Other facilities at TPC Sawgrass include basketball and volleyball courts, an aquatics center with several swimming pools, and tennis courts.
