TPC Sawgrass is one of the most iconic courses in the world and has hosted some of the most famous moments in golf history.
Famous for its island 17th green, TPC Sawgrass hosts The Players Championship, a tournament that not only attracts the biggest names but also provides the biggest tournament purse, with the PGA Tour’s flagship event being a key date. in the calendar of any professional. .
However, like any other prestigious course, the subject of ‘how much is a green fee?’ sometimes arises. At TPC Sawgrass on Thursday, that seemed to be the case, with a post on Twitter drawing attention to the jaw-dropping green fee available at the end of March…
A friend of mine pointed out that you can get a gamer ticket for today on @stubhub for $15. A pretty good deal to ride a course that will cost you $840 to play on March 29. 😳 pic.twitter.com/UrqKUgfKaWMarch 10, 2022
The tweet, which read: “A friend of mine pointed out that you can get a player ticket for today on @stubhub for $15. A great deal to run a course that will cost you $840 to play on the 29th March,” caused some backlash on Twitter.
One user replied “$840! Dammit”, while another replied “$47/hole, which is a pretty respectable price for 18 on a lot of public courses”.
There are many ways to play TPC Sawgrass since it is a public course. You can stay at the nearby Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort, where you can play as a “stay and play” guest, or you can just play without lodging.
If for some reason you think $840 is too cheap, then you can watch Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. Recently, it was reported that Shadow Creek would increase its green fees to $1,000 during its peak season (March through May, plus October and November) and $750 during off-peak hours.
It’s fair to say that the cost of a green fee in Vegas is higher than the iconic Pebble Beach, which is said to be between $575 and $600!
