Hilton Head Island, SC
The lighthouse. The tartan jacket. The world’s best struggling against a short that’s deceptively short yet long on challenge. Play at the home of the MCI Heritage Classic and one of the all-time modern classics—Harbour Town Golf Links.

|TPC at Sawgrass—Stadium Course|
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
The Pete Dye TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course is the ultimate combination of brawn and beauty. As easy as it is on the eyes, it’s just as demanding on your ability to hit targeted golf shots with little room for error. Nevertheless, this Florida favorite is admired by the world every year at the PGA Tour’s Players Championship. Also noteworthy is its sibling, the Valley Course. The Marriott hotel on site is deluxe.
