    Golf courses

    TPC Stadium Course

    Pete Dye's TPC Stadium Course is among the most famous in the world, and is the annual host to the so-called ‘fifth major', the Players Championship. The highlight, which goes without saying, is the incredible 17th hole with its island green, which has to be one of the most exhilarating golf experiences anywhere. Look past the most discussed hole and the TPC Stadium Course presents an exacting 6,954 yard layout, whose fairways and greens are pristine. No less than $30 million has been invested in the course, and the work completed in 2006 has affirmed the amazing Players' Course at the forefront of golf in Florida and beyond.

    The trophy and awards cabinet of the TPC Stadium Course is already overflowing, but it has recently been ranked 5th in Golf Magazine's list of the ‘Top 100 Courses You Can Play'.

    Green (Ladies): 5019 yards, SSS 72.1

    Valley Course

    The latest addition to Sawgrass' already impressive portfolio is Pete Dye's Valley Course, which is already regarded as being worthy of standing side-by-side with the TPC Stadium Course, and has also hosted the PGA Tour's finest. The ambitious project reflects Dye's extravagant design ethos, and the result is a magnificent 6,838 yard championship layout overflowing with water and sand. Perfectly manicured fairways and slick, sweeping greens are among the characteristics that make the Valley so popular.

    Sawgrass Country Club

    Sawgrass Country Club played host to the Players Championship from 1977 to 1981, and was designed by Ed Seay, an associate of Arnold Palmer's architectural organisation. The 27 holes are combined to produce the East and West rotations, with a maximum length of 7,072 yards. Whichever combination you are lucky enough to play, enjoyment and challenge are guaranteed at a course which Golf Digest included in its list of the ‘Best 25 Golf Courses'.

    Marsh Landing Country Club

    Intracoastal marshland and towering pines set the backdrop for the Marsh Landing Country Club, which boasts a 6,841 yard championship layout devised by Ed Seay, who also conceived the superb links at the Sawgrass Country Club. The two nines are truly distinct, but both offer a good test and the chance to observe the estate's outstanding wildlife.

    Ponte Vedra Country Club

    The Ponte Vedra Country Club's course has been revised and greatly improved by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, and is set a stunning natural environment. Although it is short, Ponte Vedra Country Club is tight in places, demanding straight driving above all else. The signature hole is the short par 4 thirteenth, whose length is enticing, but there is water everywhere.

    Red: 4834 yards, SSS 70

    Signature Hole: 

    Hole 17 (TPC Stadium Course), Par 3, 137 yards, SI 14

    The concept for the signature hole for Sawgrass was supposedly drawn up on the back of a cocktail napkin by Alice Dye. It has now become one of the most famous holes in golf and one which Luke Donald branded as "Do or Die. The island green is a favourite amongst many PGA Tour players and coming in at 17 has been known to make or break a round. A must play hole for any golfer.


    At the end of manageable drives from both Jacksonville and Orlando is the 4* luxury Sawgrass Marriott Resort and Spa. Located near the exclusive Ponte Vedra Beach development, the resort boasts a stunning hotel, whose 508 rooms have been newly refurbished to guarantee the utmost luxury.

    Golfer reviews

    We were delighted with the trip...

    Thanks very much for booking our golf holiday to Sawgrass. Everything worked out really well. We were expected at both hotels and the golf times were all lined up. We particularly enjoyed Sawgrass but Championsgate was good too and in excellent condition as we played the course the day after the annual Father and Son challenge. This is a Texas scramble type format featuring 16 Champions' Tour members and their sons/grandsons. They included the Faldos, Palmers, Langers, Normans, Loves, Nelsons, Nicklaus's, Singhs and Trevinos most of whom we got to see.

    We were delighted with the trip and would be interested in any similar offers next year in either Florida or the Nevada areas.

    One of the best experiences of my golfing career...

    The courses that we played on our golf holiday in the USA were absolutely fantastic, with the Stadium at Sawgrass coming out on top. To play that just 3 days after watching The Players Championship tournament was without doubt one of the best experiences of my golfing career.

    Immediately seduced by the soothing atmosphere...

    YGT customised my golf trip to ensure that the courses, accommodation, car hire and flights were tailored to suit my bespoke wishes. YGT clearly had an in-depth understanding of all the options for the destinations that I was interested in. Speaking to an actual golfer about the options for a golf holiday is definitely a bonus!
    I arrived at Sawgrass on the Friday evening and was immediately seduced by the soothing atmosphere of the Marriot hotel and surrounding estate. Driving along PGA Tour Boulevard and Seven Mile Drive, seeing the pictures of past winners of the The Players Championship, makes you feel like you are in a very special golfing venue.
    The Saturday morning sunsine laid bare the full glory of the courses on the estate. Seeing the sun rise over the dew on the practice ground was a sight that any golfer would yearn for. I decided to have breakfast in the Sawgrass clubhouse whilst I looked over the course guide, to plot my way around the course hole by hole. The clubhouse feels like it has been there since the 19th century, such is the old world splendour of the building and the history behind the many pictures and stories.

    I was lucky enough to meet one of the many volunteers that morning, Hal Fletcher, who talked me through the history of the course as a venue for The Players Championship and its path from untouchable swamp land to one of the most revered golf venues in the world. Hal exuded the spirit of Sawgrass, was charming, funny and great company. He took me on a tour of the 16th, 17th and 18th holes too. Each turn on the route was accompanied by an anecdote that was unforgettable. Especially memorable was the story of infamous Angelo Spagnolo who carded a 3 over par 66...on the 17th alone!
    I played the Stadium and Valley courses on 2 occasions each. The pairings were fun and the anticipation on the 1st tee at Sawgrass was immense for each golfer in the group. From the pro-shop staff right through to the starter, everyone seemed to be in a romantic state because of the surroundings. This added to the all round experience on the day.
    YGT understand what it organise a great golf trip. Their staff and packages are first class and I can't wait to get in touch for my next trip.
