In the summer of 2016, TPC Sawgrass underwent a series of renovations after the 2016 PLAYERS Championship. The goal of these renovations was for the course to be visually intimidating, which it now is. Three major changes were made on the 12th hole, the 6th/7th hole and to the grass on the greens, with other small alterations made throughout the course to test every aspect of the players game
Three weeks have gone by since we were at TPC Sawgrass witnessing history at THE PLAYERS Championship 2017. With unexpected finishes, glorious weather and exciting concerts, we couldn’t have asked for a better week.

I don’t think anyone could’ve dreamt of the week that was THE PLAYERS Championship 2017. With impeccable weather each day, a course full of fans looking for excitement, and golf’s best players competing for the coveted title, it was quite the dream.
With less than 24 hours until THE PLAYERS Championship begins, we wanted to break down the iconic 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass Golf Course, also known as The Island Green. It is the shortest yet most dramatic hole throughout the entire course. It is only 132 yards from tee to green with a 78 ft green and contains a small bunker. Your ball can either land in the bunker, on the green or in the water, preferably not the latter.
