The Stadium course is simply one of the best known courses in the world. From being featured on Tiger Woods PGA Tour golf game, to hosting the Player’s Championship each year, to the famous island green 17th hole, few courses have gained as much hype or exposure as TPC Sawgrass. The Pete and Alice Dye design was the first of its kind to be built with the concept of spectator seating being a priority while hosting the PGA Tour. The course instantly drew criticism from players, something Pete seems to relish, as they contended with the demanding shot making required to avoid the numerous hazards found throughout the routing. Dye has tweaked with TPC Sawgrass maybe as much as any of his creations and today it widely garners praise from pros and the public alike.
Boasting perfectly manicured surfaces and water on every hole, Dye’s Valley Course was ranked No. 14 in Golfweek’s 2015 rankings of “Best Courses You Can Play” in Florida. Seasoned and casual golfers can benefit from the design of this golf course with wider fairways and larger greens. This is still a challenging golf course as water comes into play on all 18 holes. There is even a chance for the long hitters to potentially reach some of the par 5 holes in two. Golfers will also enjoy a less-crowded golf course, and likely a faster round on Dye’s Valley Course.
