THE GOLF COURSES
The PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, the world-famous home of The PLAYERS
Championship, was designed by Pete Dye in 1982 and completely renovated in 2006. The original design
provides an exhilarating test of golf, with dramatic mounding and fast contoured greens. Treacherous
bunkering and plenty of strategically placed water are all signatures of this famed course, which closes
with perhaps the toughest finishing holes in golf, including the island green 17th! The magnificent new
clubhouse offers great views of the 9th and 18th holes.
Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass offers a more
playable Pete Dye/Jerry Pate design, built in 1987.
Dye’s Valley Course previously hosted The Senior Players
Championship. This popular course may be a slightly
less daunting challenge than its sister course, but it still
offers an excellent and enjoyable test of golf, with water

hazards that come into play on virtually every hole, and
large and undulating greens.
Please note: TPC Sawgrass now provides a caddie program on both its courses, with a forecaddie provided with each group.
Please note, the caddie fee is included but a gratuity is recommended, payable locally. Individual walking caddies are also

available at a supplement.
The King & Bear at World Golf Village, named for its co-
designers, World Golf Hall of Fame members Arnold Palmer and Jack
Nicklaus, is the first and only course design collaboration between
two of golf’s most respected and well-known ambassadors. Palmer
and Nicklaus set out to create the 7,279-yard course as an eminently
playable and picturesque course with memorable par-5’s amid lakes,
loblolly pines and 200-year-old oaks.
St Johns Golf & Country Club, designed by respected golf
architect, Clyde Johnston, provides a well-groomed golf challenge.
Johnston’s use of the surrounding wetlands, lagoons and pine forests
adds challenge and beauty to the design which provides an enjoyable
