The Stadium Course:  The Stadium Course of the TPC at Sawgrass hosts the annual Players Championship each year in March.  Designed by Pete Dye the course was intended to be the ultimate test for the PGA Tour players.  The diabolical layout opened in 1980 and when the first Players Championship was held there in 1982 players were adamant in their criticism of the course.  It was too hard.  Since then Dye has reworked the course and over the years subtle changes have been made to create a course that is among the most distinctive and praised on tour.  Still a stern test of golfing skills, every hole is different and the variety throughout the routing is interesting and challenging. The focal point is always the famous island hole, the 17th, where disaster can strike any leader.  But danger lurks in sand, water and trees at every twist and turn from beginning to end.  The scorecard shown here is as the pros play it, which can very each day depending on how the PGA wants to set it up.  The length on the actual scorecard is 6954 yards, rated 73.3 with a slope of 138.
