The Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass (TPC at Sawgrass) is a golf course in the southeastern United States, located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, southeast of Jacksonville. Opened in the autumn of 1980, it was the first of several Tournament Players Clubs to be built. It is home to the PGA Tour headquarters and hosts The Players Championship, the PGA Tour's signature event, now held in May. Paul and Jerome Fletcher negotiated a deal with the PGA Tour, which included the donation of for one dollar (the original check is prominently displayed in the clubhouse). TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course, the golf stadium of the course, has a capacity of 36,000. The TPC at Sawgrass is situated in Ponte Vedra Beach's Sawgrass development. It has two individual courses, the Stadium Course and the Valley Course. The Stadium Course was designed by noted golf course architects Pete and Alice Dye, and is known as one of the most difficult golf courses in the world. Constructed specifically to host The Players Championship, it employs a distinctive "stadium" concept: like in other sports, fans at the TPC sit in "stands" made of raised mounds of grass. It is known for its signature hole, the par-3, 17th, known as the "Island Green," one of golf's most recognizable and difficult holes. The course has been featured for many years on the best-selling Tiger Woods PGA Tour series of video games. Dye’s Valley Course has hosted the Web.com Tour Championship since 2013.
