It's iconic. It's got the most famous hole in golf. And it's really hard. But you have to play it. You just have to. Its one of those "bucket list" courses, like Pebble and The Straits. So don't sweat how expensive it is (very). Its worth every penny. Just bring your humility, lots of balls (water on damn near every hole) and enjoy it.

This is a world class golf club. From the prestige - to the layout - to the conditioning - it doesn't get much better than this. The greens are incredibly quick and the rough is like bermuda cabbage, but mentioning that isn't really helpful. You can figure that out by watching the television coverage of The Players. So here's what I can tell you to help:

First, check their aerification schedule. They'll usually close down for a little while following any major work, but for a month afterward the fairways and greens will be overseeded. However, this won't have a detrimental impact on the overall conditions. We played it a month following major agronomy work and even with topdressed fairways, the greens rolled true.

You'll be provided a forecaddie, which is a club requirement. The forecaddie will go up to the fairway while you're hitting most of your shots. He'll spot your tee-shots and give you a yardage. He'll also keep your group and the group ahead moving along at the proper pace. Expect to tip. Factor that into the cost; these guys aren't here simply to do you a favor.

If you visit in the summer, play in the morning. Not just due to the heat, but because afternoon rainfall is typical that time of year.

They'll probably give you an engraved bag tag or something of that variety to commemorate your round. They also have very reasonably priced items (apparel, yardage books, ball markers, etc) in the pro shop.

Didn't play golf just had lunch and checked out the clubhouse. Pretty cool
Pictures on the wall right outside of pro shop. Framed picture of 17th hole design on a bev napkin. Jerry Pate jumping into lake. If you are a golfer you would appreciate these pictures. Beautiful clubhouse

The 16th hole is spectacular with an island green. Even the pros have water shots missing the green and have to drop a ball and take a stroke. Great people watching

TPC recently hosted the Florida Junior Tour's Tournament Championship . The staff is incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating. The course is spectacular. Do not miss an opportunity to play here.
