Golfers must stay at Sawgrass Resort to play this course.
The Sawgrass Country Club features 27 holes of championship golf, designed by noted course architect, Ed Seay of Palmer Course Design. Consistently ranked in the top 100 courses to play and among the "Best in State" by Golf Digest, subscribers also rated Sawgrass in the top 10 courses in terms of service. Players encounter water on 24 of the 27 holes throughout the medley of challenging nines that stretch across rolling dunes constantly freshened by ocean breezes. The 7,072-yard, par-72 East/West rotation has earned the time-honored distinction as "the original Sawgrass."
The Sawgrass Oceanside Course (East-West) gained its reputation as the original home of PGA Tour THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP from 1977-1981 when the course, along with the treacherous March winds, tested the greatest players in the game. The par-72 East-West course has an array of spectacular golf holes, most notably the daunting par 5, East No. 4 with a tantalizing peek at the ocean as you make your way from the green to the next tee.
