Marriott Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa is a luxury oasis of golf, surf and sunshine located along the Atlantic at Ponte Vedra Beach, 15 miles south of Jacksonville and approximately 2 hrs from Orlando. Laid out across 15 acres, the resort combines modern 4-star accommodation, natural beauty, a wide range of dining options and a 25,000-square-foot luxury spa with 19 treatment rooms.

The journey from Orlando to Sawgrass takes approximately 2 hrs 20 mins.

Hotel Parking:

Hotel’s current daily parking rates are $20.00 for self-parking and $28.00 for valet.  Across the road from the Marriott Hotel, approximately 3 minutes walk, is a retail park and overnight parking is free of charge


Breakfast options:

Breakfast is not included in the package because in our previous trips to Sawgrass we have found that many people like the option of having breakfast in the clubhouse at Sawgrass in ‘Nineteen’.

Breakfast is served in the Marriott Hotel between 7.00am and 11.00am and the cost is approximately $28.

We also recommend the Metro Diner in the shopping area across the road from the hotel. Full breakfast is approximately $15 + tip.


Course Transfers:  Dye’s Valley and The Stadium Course are within 5 minutes drive of the hotel. The hotel operates a shuttle service to the courses which are not exclusive to our group. Please allow 30 minutes to take the shuttle from the front of the Marriott Hotel to the courses.

Marsh Landing Country Club is just a bit further than the entrance to the PGA Sawgrass but still less than 10 minutes from the Marriott Hotel.


Directions to Sawgrass:  Both golf courses are located at TPC Sawgrass which is approximately 5 minutes drive from the hotel if you have your own vehicle.

To get to TPC Sawgrass turn left out of the main hotel entrance, go through the security barrier and after approximately half a mile TPC Sawgrass is signposted on the left.


Format: The scoring format each day will be individual Stableford with Playing Handicap 95% of Course Handicap.  All four rounds will count towards the Order of Merits.


Tees:  TBC – depending on conditions on the day 


Handicap:  All five rounds will be run under the WHS system, but scores will not automatically be forwarded to England Golf.  You MUST return your daily scores to your golf club and the easiest way to do this is to forward the email from Golf Genius, which you will receive after each round, and which provides details of your scores.


GAGT Overseas Handicap System (OHA):  Where appropriate handicaps will be adjusted after each round in line with the GAGT OHA system which is based on the CONGU handicap system prior to the introduction of WHS, details of which we can provide.  Any adjustments will not affect your club Handicap Index.

The GAGT OHA system will take precedence over any adjustments made by a player’s home club so that everyone is operating on the same system as some clubs are slow to update overseas scores.  


Bag storage: You can safely leave your golf bag at Sawgrass and they will be ready on your buggy each morning when you arrive.


Buggies & electric trolleys:  Buggies are included each day, shared between two players. 


Caddie Program:  The Tournament Players Club provides a caddie experience for all golfers. All play on The Stadium Course  and Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass will automatically enjoy a Forecaddie program included in the package.  Every golfer will be obliged to pay the Forecaddie a minimum gratuity of €40 per golfer per round.

What the competitors say:

“Brilliant courses, awesome weather, great people, wonderful hospitality – USA at its finest!! I will be back.” 

“Without doubt one of the top venues we play on GAG tour. Courses and practice facilities are amongst the best we can play. This was my 5th visit and would happily play the Stadium course every day, all day. Look forward to the next visit!”

“The Stadium Course at Sawgrass is so iconic - perhaps second only to Augusta - that no matter where else you’ve played, you’ll get goosebumps playing 16-18.  The fun (or panic!) of trying to hit the 17th is second to none.  However, the rest of the course is equally as good, requiring you to think your way round and play great shots - there aren’t that many places to miss!  Dye’s Valley is also sneaky good and a welcome change of pace.”
