About the Area
Beautifully positioned along the Atlantic Ocean in Northeast Florida, Jacksonville offers you a natural escape to a decidedly different Florida vacation destination. A world away from the neon glare and commercial flair associated with many of Floridian hotspots, Jacksonville truly reflects the Sunshine State’s authentic lifestyles and landscapes.
“The River City by the Sea” is an adventure in contrast, with breathtaking natural beauty balanced by a polished metropolitan flair. At the northern and southern borders, lavish resorts offer luxurious amenities infused with an historic old world flavor, while along the stunning St. Johns riverfront, the arts district is the centerpiece of a diverse downtown landscape, and illuminates the heart of Jacksonville with sophisticated style.
Only in Jax will you find over 20 miles of pristine white sand beaches—perfect for relaxation and revelry in the salty seaside air—and combined with almost 40 miles of the Intercoastal Waterway, Jacksonville and “the Beaches” are a boater’s paradise. The city is also home to the largest urban park system in the country, with 80,000 acres of state and national parks just waiting to be explored. Renowned for its hospitality, authentic cuisine, thriving craft-beer scene and cosmopolitan nightlife, Jacksonville is Florida’s regional crossroads, where history, culture, sports and nature intersect at a with southern charm and coastal cool.
Each May, TPC Sawgrass is host to THE PLAYERS Championship, one of the truly special events on the PGA TOUR. Featuring the strongest field and the biggest purse in professional golf history, THE PLAYERS challenges the pros like no other golf course, and is the first true “Stadium Course” to provide an unprecedented on-site experience for spectators. Let Golf Experiences be your official tour guide to the ultimate golf fan experience at THE PLAYERS Championship. We offer a wide selection of Exclusive Spectator Packages as well as Premium Hospitality Packages to enhance your guests’ enjoyment of one of professional golf’s premier events. We even have an exclusive collection of upgraded Hospitality Tents that are specifically located at key points of THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, so your guests can experience THE PLAYERS Championship like never before.
Named one of the Top 50 Golf Courses in the World by GOLF Magazine, THE PLAYERS Stadium Course is revered as the home of one of professional golf’s most prestigious competitions—THE PLAYERS Championship. Opened in 1980, the course was built to challenge the pros like no other golf course had done before, and become the first true “Stadium Course” to provide an unprecedented experience for spectators. With its contoured fairways, confounding angles, Pete Dye’s masterpiece left players wide-eyed with wonder…and over 30 years later, it still does.
Face the same challenges that have tested the skill and resolve of the game’s greatest players—including the formidable par-3 17th “Island Green”—one of the world’s most photographed holes, and arguably the signature hole for the entire sport of golf.
Filled with the kind of tantalizing twists and tricky shots that Pete Dye is famous for, Dye’s Valley Course has hosted a variety of high-profile contests over the years, including the Senior PLAYER Championship, the Cadillac NFL Golf Classic and the United Van Lines Aces Championship. Although slightly more forgiving than The Stadium Course, Dye’s Valley Course offers a whole new set of challenges—including abundant hills and valleys, large sweeping greens and water features on every hole—with a design balance to rival that of its sister course.
