The most famous course, THE PLAYERS Stadium Course with its world-renowned 17th island hole at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, is where THE PLAYERS Championship takes place in March. On the Stadium Course, players find a selection of short, medium and long holes within categories of par-3s, par-4s and par5s; both right and left doglegs; and a course routing laid out so no two consecutive holes ever play the same direction. Seasoned and casual golfers can benefit from the design of Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass with wider fairways and larger greens.
Hall of Fame Play
Just a few minutes away in St. Augustine you can walk the halls of fame – the World Golf Hall of Fame that is. See the personal memorabilia and artifacts and unique items from such great players as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Nancy Lopez and more from all the Hall’s members. Exhibits trace the evolution of the game, showcase the sports iconic trophies, and much more. Before you leave, take a swing on two great courses – the Slammer & Squire inspired by Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead, and the King & Bear, jointly designed by golfing greats Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
The Slammer & Squire is a 6,939 yard resort course with views of the World Golf Hall of Fame and is distinguished by memorable par-3s, preserved woodlands, wetland and natural beauty. The King & Bear is a 7,279 yard course that is eminently playable and picturesque with par-5s amid lakes and live oaks. The King & Bear is rated among Golf Week’s Top Resort Courses.
Golf Along Coastal Vistas
If you love the feel of the ocean breeze as you play, head over to the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club. The par-72, 6,811 yard Ocean Course – with its stunning seaside views – has served as the site for the U.S. Open qualifying round five times. The Lagoon Course is a 6,022 yard, par 70 masterpiece. The course places a premium on accurate drives and thoughtful approaches. Water is definitely a dominant feature with a mosaic of lakes and lagoons taunting golfers on 11 holes.
The Ocean Course at Hammock Beach Resort was cut out of the Atlantic Coast coastline. This Jack Nicklaus design will give you a golf experience like no other. This 7,201 yard par 72 is truly a Florida oceanfront golf course with six holes which overlook the Atlantic Ocean. One of its signature holes, the 18th, is a par four that stretches 468 yards along the Atlantic coast.
Experience A New Kind of Course
