Sharing a home with the renowned Stadium Course can be intimidating, but Pete Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass is definitely able to hold its own. The golf course features large greens and an abundance of water that sprawl across rolling hills and valleys. During a renovation in 2006, more than 300 trees were added to the golf course and several bunkers were reconstructed to make them more challenging. One of the most notable holes is the 350-yard third. What this par-4 lacks in length, it makes up for in difficulty with a fairway that slopes sharply to the left and a tightly manicured collection area that is twelve feet below the level of the green.

Played this course the first time. It was amazing using the facilities that pros use. My skill level is not ready for the stadium course. I highly recommending getting there early to get with the story tellers. They will tour you of the clubhouse and take you to the 17th. My only complaint of the course was the weather. I was dealing with 54 degrees and wind was about 30mph. Made the course very challenging. Def will be back to play.

It’s on the same grounds as the PGA, The Player’s Stadium Course and it’s all included in the experience when you play Dye’s Valley. I don’t have the skill or willingness to play The Player’s course but wanted to play dye’s Valley because of the rankings and namesake. It was SICK. Everything is top of the line and you feel like a pro with the facilities.

After the round we had a drink and app on the back patio and it was beautiful. It’s worth paying the rate to take this all in. We had a great time.

Course is pretty but surrounded by houses. Tee boxes are nice, fairways are good but many divots, rough is dead and bunkers are full of fluffy sand. The greens are slow, bumpy and reminiscent of inexpensive public courses. Sorry, it just doesn’t measure up to a showcase Dye course, especially at about $200.

I've played here 2 times before. Once in 2012 and once in 2015, both times at AM Tour events. The Sawgrass courses we're tough the first 2 times and I needed a refresher at one of the 2. I chose Valley for a practice round. I was able to move at my own pace playing alone and focus on prepping for the tournament. Stadium beat up on .e the first day but the 2nd day I was able to use the experience gained in this practice round to move up the leaderboard and finish in the money. Great course.

I enjoyed playing TPC Sawgrass Valley Golf Course. The overall experience was good. The one thing I enjoyed mostly about playing was before the round they took me on a small tour of the stadium course hole 16 17 and 18. I would have loved to have played that course except it was $400 plus a caddy so I chose the hundred-dollar course Valley instead. The only negative was a Diet Coke was $4 but that's expected at a resort course. By the way I bought two plus $2 tip so I spent $10 on cokes. Lol.

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
