THE PLAYERS Championship Travel Information
North Florida is home to THE PLAYERS Championship, one of the PGA TOUR’s most coveted titles. Witness the incredible competition by the world’s best golfers at Pete Dye’s masterpiece, TPC Sawgrass – THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, in beautiful Ponte Vedra. The tournament will take place May 09-14, 2017.
THE PLAYERS is recognized by PGA TOUR members as "their" championship tournament.
THE PLAYERS has evolved into one of the most prestigious events in golf.
The world-renowned, Par 72 course is 7,215 yards of pure Pete, and is home to one of the most challenging holes in golf, the “island hole” 17. Recently reopened after new course renovations—designed by Steve Wenzloff of PGA Tour Design Services—the Stadium Course is the (now even shinier) crown jewel of Northeast Florida.
In addition to years of accolades, TPC Sawgrass – THE PLAYERS has already been ranked no. 1 by golf.com as Best Golf Courses You Can Play in Florida, and named in Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses in 2017.
New course renovations include the upgraded practice grounds, the transformation of holes 6, 7, 11, 12, & 13—with contour changes and resurfaced greens—and a completely redesigned, Par 4 12th hole to add more excitement on the back nine.
Something for Everyone
The event held Mother's Day weekend in May each year is a must see and experience event for golf fans, and friends and family of golf fans. Hospitality venues are available for purchase and provide delicious food & beverages in a cool and comfortable, social setting. The World Golf Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is held the week of THE PLAYERS at the nearby World Golf Village.
Local heroes Calvin Peete, Mark McCumber, David Duval and Fred Funk have hoisted THE PLAYERS trophy, as have some of the game's most recognizable names, including Davis Love III, Greg Norman, Fred Couples, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia.
Such an impressive lineup couldn't fail to produce an amazing selection of memories, record-breaking performances, anecdotes and comical incidents - many are remembered almost as much as the magnificent golf itself.
