No matter who you are or what drew you here, there’s something for everyone at TPC Sawgrass and THE PLAYERS® Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, March 9-14, 2021. From die-hard golf fans to foodies, families and friends of all kinds, you’ll have the experience of a lifetime at an event designed with you - the fan - in mind.

From the moment you step onsite at the world-famous Stadium Course, entry will be easier for everyone with mobile-only tickets, accessible via the PGA TOUR app. Once you’re in, you’ll understand why THE PLAYERS® has earned its place on everyone’s bucket list.

Here are some highlights:

Military Member or Veteran?
Those currently serving in the military, their spouses and accompanied dependents receive complimentary admission, and veterans receive discounted tickets for themselves and a guest. That’s just for starters. Tuesday, March 9, is Military Appreciation Day, a long-standing tradition at the tournament that in 2021 will feature a live concert on the iconic 17th hole. All week long, military members and veterans will also have access to a hospitality tent with complimentary food, beverages and activities – and of course, some of the best views of the action.

Die-hard golf aficionado?
Everyone holds their breath at the 17th hole on Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. But true golf fans make sure they check out all of the best spots, and breathtaking views, on this classic Pete Dye course—from getting up close to the rope line on #1 tee as players tee off, to getting a fist bump as players walk from #12 to #13 and getting that swing video of your favorite pro for your Instagram story.

Got kids?
Kids 15 and younger are free when accompanied by a ticketed adult –this is the best deal in professional sports! At The Kids Zone presented by Nemours Children’s Health System, kids can let loose and even take a few swings in the hitting booth or putting green, while the parents recharge. Don’t forget to snap a family photo in the photo booth before you go. Out on the course, there are designated “kid corners” in the autograph zones to ensure your little ones get something signed by their favorite players!

From Palm Valley Village to the Food Trucks on 10 to local favorites, you’ll find lots of opportunities to indulge in some of the best cuisine in Northeast Florida featuring Insta-worthy dishes made by the best local chefs and restaurants—from barbeque to wood-fired pizza, fish tacos, donuts, juicy burgers and much more. Who knew a golf tournament would have so many options?! Not to mention stops along the way for a sip of fine wine, craft beer or a classic cocktail.

Social scene seeker?
Of course you are! And there’s no better place to see and be seen than at THE PLAYERS®. From the red carpet at the Welcome Experience to selfies at the Island Green 17th hole, THE PLAYERS is an experience you—and all of your social media followers—will remember forever.
