How many times have I visited TPC Sawgrass? I’ve lost count. It is of of my favorite venues. It means The resort means so much the golfing fraternity. Yep, it’s all about Pete Dye and that amazing 17th island green. But it’s actually more than that. Most people don’t realize that there are two Pete Dye masterpieces at Sawgrass. The Stadium Course and Dye’s Valley. If you decide to take advantage of the “Links of Love” package, be sure you play them both.
The two golf courses are set against a backdrop of beautifully manicured fairways and majestic, Spanish moss-draped oaks. The “Links of Love” package was designed to allow golf enthusiasts to experience TPC Sawgrass in unprecedented form. From bell tower champagne toasts and sailboat rides at sunset, to acoustic guitarists and candlelit meals overlooking the famous 17th island green at dinner, lovers will leave Ponte Vedra with a new admiration for both the course and that special someone.
