I have never had a golf experience like I had at TPC Sawgrass. Everything was first class from the bag drop off to the luunch after our round. It was an awesome experience. I would recommend playing this course for the experience of a lifetime.

Water comes into play on many holes and sloping fairways will challenge you to pick your target well to avoid a good shot having a bad result. The course is very picturesque and in great shape.The greens were true but not as fast as they looked. The greens are generally large but with multiple levels and subltle breaks they are a challenge. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We played in the afternoon to keep the price reasonable and the pace of play was quite good. Practice facilities were generous and very well maintained,. While the stadium course is more well-known this one is definitely worth a try.

The 1st hole was fairly plain. However, the remaining holes were very picturesque. There are houses, water and wildlife along most holes but it is possible to keep away from these. The greens were excellent which allowed you to get the feel of pace straight away. A very enjoyable round

From the drive up to the clubhouse to the lunch on the veranda at the famous clubhouse, TPC Sawgrass is a fantastic experience. The staff is inviting and the conditions couldn't have been any better. I was interested in seeing the changes they made to the course a couple years ago. The course can is definitely challenging so be sure to pick the right set of tees! It was an awesome start to 2017 and I plan on having a buddies trip here within the next couple of years. A+

The course is amazing, well-kept like the Stadium Course. It doesn't look like one you should walk given the long distances between greens and tees, but overall a must play. Looking forward to a return trip in late-February.

Course condition was excellent. Caddie was good. Staff is friendly and helpful.

The rough is too penal. Not a fan of trees in the fairway or right in front of the tee. Seems to be a Pete Dye thing. The 16th & 17th holes are back to back par fives which is OK, but the holes are too similar to each other. Too much water for my taste.

Great course in outstanding shape, friendly, helpful staff. Really couldn't ask for more. The rough was troublesome as in tough. Wouldn't hurt to cut it down.

Only have a chipping and putting practice area as the driving range is being upgraded.

Played June 21st at 3:35 PM for $90. Played in <3 hrs with son as twosome with new Taylor Made M2 rentals. Driving range was closed but it's more important to practice putting and chipping. I'm 54 with an 8 handicap and not a long hitter. Played the mixed tees.

What followed was a thoroughly enjoyable and challenging round of golf. Par 4s and 5s challenging and par 3s playable. Greens still had some sand from aeration 3 weeks ago but rolled well. Very firm and had a few good shots roll off the back until I got used to them. Fairways in great shape. Water on so many holes wears you down by the time you're midway through back 9. Must be accurate off the tee. Shot 39-43 and very happy.

Staff was great. I would definitely play again.

The tees boxes need to be marked with the yardage. The card has them marked, in very tiny print, by the way, but when you walk up to the tees, there are no yardage markers, so you have to guess exactly how long the hole is, which is lame.
