TPC Sawgrass (Dye's Valley course): As you might expect from the flagship Tournament Players Club and home of the PGA Tour, the two courses here at Sawgrass are world-class. The Valley course, now known as Dye's Valley course, is another top-quality and magnificently designed Pete Dye layout. It impressively complements TPC Sawgrass's more famous Stadium course.

Occupying nicely rolling terrain, the two nine-hole loops of Dye's Valley course meander through a quiet and picturesque setting. At times tree-lined, at others more open (especially when water is present), the front-nine follows a clockwise routing, while the back-nine runs counter-clockwise. To get round with a respectable score you'll need a clear game plan and good shot-making, without them several balls are likely to be consigned to a watery end.

Many of the Valley's good-width undulating fairways are flanked by expansive and threatening ponds on one side. On the other you'll find mountainous, gallery-friendly earth mounds. Several of the large and undulating greens are butted up against the water's edge, not least at the par-3 5th, the gently dog-legging par-4 6th and the par-4 9th on the front-nine. Similar watery dangers are posed at the par-3 11th and wonderful par-5 16th on the back-nine.

As on the Stadium course, the green-surrounds (when not flanked by water) comprise an intimidating mix of himalayan moguls, bunkers of every shape and size, slick run-off areas and deep unforgiving rough. With mansion-sized housing set well back from the playing areas (usually across the ponds), the Dye's Valley course is characterised by 18 excellently presented and challenging golf holes.

Stay&Play: accommodation and Stay&Play packages are available in nearby hotels (see Where2Stay section below).

Did you know?

The Tournament Players Club (TPC) was the culmination of PGA Commissioner Deane Beman's long-held vision to create a "home club" for members of the PGA Tour. The two courses at TPC Sawgrass were built for top-level tournament golf, including amphitheatre-like mounding which provides excellent viewing galleries for spectators, a concept common to other TPCs in the USA. TPC Sawgrass has been a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System since its opening and continues to work diligently protecting its wildlife.

TPC Sawgrass is home to another TPC - The Players Championship, which is played annually on the Stadium course. It is one of the PGA Tour's biggest events. (See our Tournaments section >by Venue >TPC Sawgrass).

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
