    The Stadium Course at the TPC at Sawgrass is home to The PLAYERS Championship, the PGA Tour's flagship event, and is widely regarded as one of the toughest golf courses in the world.

    Opened in 1980 and designed by noted golf-course architects Pete Dye, the Stadium Course was revolutionary for its radical "stadium" concept. The course was designed and built to provide unrivalled viewing access too many more spectators than most other golf courses could. Spectators at the Stadium Course sit in stands made of raised mounds of grass.

    Dye's masterpiece defined the term target golf, with narrow fairways lined with hazards like marshes and waste bunkers and dozens of deep pot bunkers, strategically placed to catch even a slightly misplaced shot. Venture off the fairway and you will find yourself in thick rough, facing an approach shot that is likely to be obstructed by the tall palm trees. Add this with rock-hard, lightning-fast greens and you have the making of a very tough golf course indeed.

    TPC Sawgrass' signature hole is the Stadium Course's par 3, 17th, one of golf's most recognizable holes. Known simply as the Island Green, the hole has been known to scare even the top professional golfers. It measures only 132 yards from tee to green, but consists of nothing but a 78 foot long green and a tiny bunker in front of it. Save a small path to the green, the rest of the hole is completely surrounded by water, and its location amidst a canyon of trees causes the wind to swirl over the green.

    Club selection on this hole is critically important; with the tricky winds of spring, the Championship could be won or lost here. It is estimated that over 100,000 balls are retrieved from the surrounding water every year, courtesy of professionals and tourists alike trying their luck.
