TPC Sawgrass is not only the home of THE PLAYERS Championship, but is home to one of the scariest holes in golf.

Built in 1982, the island green #17 has been the demise of professional golfers for over 30 years now. Have you always wondered how hard this island green really is?

With the "Conquer the Island Green" package, you get a chance at the famous Island Green Hole #17 on THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. It’s time to see if you have what it takes to survive the island green.

This package includes:

4 Nights of Accommodation at Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa

FREE arrival round on Dye’s Valley Course

1 round of golf on Dye’s Valley Course

1 round of golf on THE PLAYERS Stadium Course

1-Hour Private Lesson at TOURAcademy TPC Sawgrass

$20 TPC Clubhouse Gift Card

Packages starting from $378 per person.

Shockingly, hole 17 is only 137 yards. Doesn’t sound so bad, right? Well, in 2007 there were 97 golf balls from THE PLAYERS Championship that landed in the drink. There hasn’t been a hole-in-one at THE PLAYERS at #17 for 12 years now, and it has been dubbed by PGA pro’s, “The Scariest Hole in Golf”.

The good news is The Stadium Course is ranked 9th overall among “America’s 100 greatest Public Courses” in 2011-2012 and Golfweek ranked it the No.1 “Best Course You Can Play in the State of Florida.”
