Designed by Bobby Weed, this 6,939-yard course features two distinctive nines. The front side meanders through an old pine forest linked together with wetland corridors to protect the indigenous vegetation and wildlife. The back nine finishes with a breathtaking view of the World Golf Hall of Fame that towers above the 18th green.
This very enjoyable and exquisitely manicured course has five sets of tees to challenge every skill level of golfer.
TPC at Sawgrass – Stadium Course
The Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass Stadium Course features 18 championship holes commanding a complete repertoire of shotmaking from the golfing enthusiast. It would be hard to find 18 holes possessing more of a variety of golf course design architectural motifs, creativity, design theory and shot value for the golfer’s enjoyment than the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course. Carved out of the Northeast Florida Palm Valley lowlands, the course features mature live oaks, tall pines and lanky sepal palm trees. See our King and Bear course.
The 9th hole is a serpentine par 5 582 yards, a slight dog-leg right off the tee then a sharp turn to the left near the green. The 9th is the quintessential positional golf hole which has been rated one of the PGA Tour’s toughest par 5s. The tee shot is wide and inviting, but ironically the shot making demands increase as you approach the hole. Even with a well placed and long tee shot bringing it home in two is close to impossible due to the well protected small elevated green. In fact, the best way to make par or better is to lay up 95 yards short of the green well to the right side of the fairway. The second shot must fly a water creek hazard and position as far to the right as possible splitting the over hanging live oak trees protecting both the left and right sides of the fairway. From this lay-up position the green is accessible with a short yet critical wedge shot. The small green is protected to the left by menacing live oak trees, a waste area which wraps to the back of the green, the front has a small deep pot bunker, and to the right an assortment of sand and grass bunkers. Play Hard.
The Finishing three 16, 17, and 18 are some of the most exciting finishing three holes in golf. The 16th hole is a short 500 yard par 5 very reachable in two. Most tour pros are hitting a mid to long iron in with a well placed tee shot and looking to get a shot back. However, going for the green in two is not for the faint hearted. This hole has trouble everywhere waiting to expose an errant shot. There is a lateral water hazard on the right from 160 yards in and wrapping around to the back of the green. Secondly, 75 yards short of the green, grows a large live oak protecting the green’s left side requiring a high drawing golf shot into the green. The green itself has three distinct elevations making putting speed and direction a puzzle for most.
Glancing over from the 16th green to the next, your heart may drop, we have the 17th “island hole” par-3. The 17th is one of the most photographed, controversial and exciting golf holes in the world. Coming down the stretch, the fear and excitement of things to come looms on the mind holes ahead. Our signature hole is often the basis for one’s highs and unfortunate lows during the golf experience here at THE PLAYERS Championship. Measuring only 140 yards from the pro tees, keen accuracy and crisp spinning shots are in order for successful completion of this devilish par-3.
The 18th hole is among the toughest finishing holes in golf with a sea of blue all along the left side of this dog-leg left hole. The tee shot is an extremely daunting task to find the short grass. A long, accurate tee shot with a soft draw is the ideal ball flight to put your ball in good position to approach this three-tiered green. Once you are off the tee, the second shot presents a difficult approach for which there is no bailout. Players are faced with a middle to long iron into the hole. As you look down the fairway to the green, there are deep grass moguls to the right and a deep bunker toward the back left of the green. Water lurks all along the left side of the green inviting players to visit the watery grave coming into the clubhouse. During this year’s TPC, the golf world witnessed Adam Scott’s miraculous up-and-down on the 72nd hole. After splitting the fairway with a picture perfect tee shot, Scott pulled his approach left and into the water. All hope of winning TPC nearly sunk with his second shot. Scott, now needing to get up and down to win, proceeded to play his 4th shot from short of the green. With nerves of steel he knocked in an eight-footer to win.
Queen’s Harbour Yacht and Country Club
Enormous live oaks dripping with Spanish moss grace the Mark McCumber Royal Course, a masterpiece chiseled out of 1,000 acres of native woodland and surrounding marsh. The breathtaking magnitude of the par 72 course provides a challenge that is appreciated by rofessionalsand mateurs alike.
