TPC Sawgrass Resort: An experience of both award winning golf and luxurious accomodations


The experience of playing and visiting TPC Sawgrass is both incredible and invigorating! This is the same prestigious golf course where PGA Professional Tour players compete! During the actual PGA Players Championship tournament however, it is entirely different throughout the property. Especially in the clubhouse with all of the merchandise displayed and sold watermarked with this historic tournament title and logos (The Players Championship).

Before we go any further with golf, let’s take a brief look at the experience of residing at the Marriott at Sawgrass. Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa is truly full of beauty and nature. It offers loads of serenity and peaceful settings throughout. With a taste of contemporary designed flare, the hotel lobby and restaurants are comfortable and convenient. Infused with television screens, technology stations and seating areas spaced out around the lounge lobby. It creates a fabulous stay for any casual, business, or vacationing visitor!

During your stay, there are plenty of fitness and wellness options to take part in by visiting the fitness center and day spa. The gym is moderate in size with plenty of treadmills, stationary bicycles, hand weights, and nautilus type equipment. The luxurious spa offers treatment packages with respect to facials, massage, hair and nails. However, during my stay, the spa services were closed these two days unfortunately.

The four outdoor swimming pools of your choosing are great for taking a dip to wind down from a day of adventure or meetings and work. You melt away with luxury in the well designed rooms filled with clean lines and comfort. There is plenty of seating within the room to sit and enjoy a movie on TV or escape in a good book. Or you can just simply sit near the window to look out and soak in the views of tranquility.

The Marriott also offers a private Cabana Beach Club on Ponte Vedra Beach. Enjoy beverages at the covered bar and seating area along with the private swimming pool. Next, time to grab a large beach towel and head out to splashing waves and relax on the beach!

*NOTE: The only thing I must mention here is that the mattress is terrible. This isn’t the only Marriott I’ve experienced a terrible night sleep because of the very uncomfortable mattress. During my entire visit, I was in a fog because of the lack of sleep. A message to Marriott, please invest in much needed comfortable mattresses!

Now let’s talk golf. From the moment you drive up the beautiful street into the TPC at Sawgrass property, it will immediately make you grasp for air. You might recognize one of the memorable things about TPC Sawgrass is its signature hole at the Stadium Course's 17th, also known as the "Island Green," (this is essentially on a small peninsula).

The measurements include 137 yards from tee to green; which a pro would use a pitching wedge; and consists of a mare 78-foot long green with a tiny bunker in front of it. According to Wikipedia, an estimate of 100,000 balls is found from the surrounding water every year.

Every hole you will find nature, peaceful characteristics and a challenge of skill. The majestic canopy trees and flower foliage will certainly be a distraction during play. Bring out your best and test your golf talents at the most famous hole in golf at the 17th golf island green and make it a moment to remember.

TPC at Sawgrass is located in Ponte Vedra, Florida. This slow, quaint and quiet beach town is conveniently located between Jacksonville and historic St. Augustine. And of course, its coast line sandy beaches will help you rid yourself of any worries! If you get a chance to visit this area, you will not be disappointed!

I have been road tripping, traveling and exploring the state Florida for several years now. And I think I fall in love with every new area I discover. I’ve learned that the beaches here have a few unique characteristics such as the sand dunes can reach up to 40 feet high in some areas! As well as the beautiful white sand is comprised of Appalachian quartz and coquina. If you haven't noticed, Florida is simply amazing and offers such diversity in nature and adventure.

I truly appreciate you and thank you for following along with me! Adventure is what life is all about! You can also get inspired and follow along on my social channels.
