Course: TPC Sawgrass – Stadium Course, Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
Ranking: No. 1, Golfweek’s Best public-access courses in Florida; No. 16, Golfweek’s Best Modern Courses
The deal: If you want to play the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, you normally can expect to shell out upward of four bills (including the forecaddie fee), which makes it seem like you’re adding insult to injury when you inevitably dump a sleeve of Pro V1s into the pond at No. 17.
But from June 8 to Sept. 14, you can play Florida’s top public course twice – plus play a round on the sister Valley Course and stay two nights at the Sawgrass Marriott – for $628 per person. The rate is based on double occupancy.
Sure, it’s summer. Yes, we know it’s hot. Man up and hydrate liberally.
