"TPC Sawgrass is the permanent home of THE PLAYERS, and it is owned by the PGA TOUR players.
The course and surrounding areas were built with spectators in mind. It is the first true ""Stadium Course,"" designed and built to improve the overall on-site fan experience.
Prior to the construction of the TPC, nearly all of the great tournaments were played at private clubs where the average fan rarely had a chance to play. The TPC is a course of great design and character that is accessible to all golf fans."
