The Exciting Reopening of THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass
Pros, amateurs and enthusiasts alike have been anticipating one of Ponte Vedra’s most ambitious renovation projects this year. The newly renovated Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, which had been temporarily closed (prior to Hurricane Matthew) for enhancements and modifications, is once more opened.
This world-renowned signature Pete Dye course, built in 1981, is the crown jewel of Northeast Florida. New course renovations include the practice grounds, transformation of holes 6, 7, 11, 12, & 13, with hole 12 completely redesigned for more excitement on the back nine.
"When they reached out to me, we discussed ways to improve the drama on the back nine and in particular the 12th hole. The 12th hole has always been a short par 4 and we took a look at how we could increase the excitement." - Pete Dye on the renovation of The Players Stadium Course.
