    TPC SAWGRASS-Really

    Making a little road trip next week down to Florida for the PGA show. This is my first time.
    Plan on a stop in Jacksonville next Saturday to check things out. Got on there website to see if they had any tee times open, fiqured I could sneak a special round in. The good news is that they had a few openings for a single....the shocking news is that it was $550 for a round!!!!!!
    That is rediculous!!!!! Do people really pay that much for a round of golf!!
    Looks like I will be making a stop to walk around a bit!

    That price is lunacy.

    Couldn't care less where it was (short of like three courses worldwide).

    Yep they are nuts with the pricing, even in the dead of summer when it is 1,000 degrees they want $250-300. I have some friends that have played it and really were not that impressed, but it is a bucket list type of thing and I hope to play it one day also. Just like Pebble or some of the other high visibility courses you play for the honor of being there...

    Yes, it was $480 in December. We got paired up with another 2 some. Really didnít have to wait on the course till we got to 16 then it was a little slow... beautiful course though...

    Its not quite that expensive if you do a package with the hotel. I stayed 2 nights at the resort, and played the Stadium Twice and it was like $800 or $900 total. It was a really fun course. Glad I did it once. Not sure if I will again.

    Jim, for Florida residents, one of the best ways to play it is in one of the FSGA's tournaments. The FSGA has a slew of tournaments on some pretty fine tracks for less than what you'd pay for regular greens fees. They very often have a tournament on Sawgrass, and last year I played in one of their tournaments there for around $550*, but it included two nights at the hotel and two rounds of the tournament--one on each of their courses. BTW...the Dye Valley Course, IMO, is every bit of fine as the Players course and maybe even a little more enjoyable. You're not restricted to the cart path on the Dye course, whereas you normally are on the Players course regardless of weather.

    I am all for the free market, but that is a bit silly.
