Let’s get this out of the way here at the start. When asking how much it costs to play TPC Sawgrass, most are talking about the Stadium Course, the famous Pete and Alice Dye design that includes the island green on the par-3 17th and hosts the PGA Tour‘s flagship event, The Players Championship.

And that makes sense, given the history of the course and the chance to play one of the most iconic holes on the entire planet.

But what some may not realize is that TPC Sawgrass actually has two championship courses. There’s the aforementioned Stadium Course, the 7,245-yard layout that opened in 1980 and has been the permanent home of The Players Championship since 1982.

But there’s also Dye’s Valley Course, a 6,847-yard layout that opened in 1987 and has hosted several Korn Ferry Tour events. While certainly not the draw that the Stadium Course is, Dye’s Valley is consistently ranked as one of Florida’s top courses — and it’s much cheaper to play.

Unlike some of the other tracks in the TPC network, both of these courses are open to the general public.

So how much does it cost to play TPC Sawgrass?

One way to play both courses at TPC Sawgrass is to book a “stay and play” package that includes lodging and other perks at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. Pricing, of course, varies on how many days you’ll be staying and the number of rounds you want to play. The nice thing about taking this route is that you can book up to a year in advance.

For those not wishing to stay on the property, you can book tee times up to 14 days in advance. But given the popularity of the place, just know they fill up very quickly, especially on the Stadium Course.

From September through May, pricing at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass starts at $600 per person and includes the greens fee, the cart fee, a forecaddie for the group, and a bag of balls to warm up. From June through August, pricing starts at $450 per player.

At Dye’s Valley, pricing starts at $275 per person from September to May and $175 per player from June to August.

Take note of the word “starts” on both courses. Prices can certainly be higher depending on what day and what time of day you play.

Per the official TPC Sawgrass website, those wishing to walk either course are required to use a caddie. One caddie carrying one bag costs an extra $125, while one caddie carrying two bags costs an additional $85 per player.

And, of course, whether it’s a forecaddie or a caddie, don’t forget to tip.
