We appreciate there has been a substantial increase in the price of the trip to Sawgrass since our last visit in December 2015.  This has been caused by a combination of the weakened GBP in relation to the US dollar and an increase in green fees on the Stadium Course from approximately $300 in December 2016 to $495 Peak and $410 Shoulder season.  One of our round coincides with Peak season and the other two are Shoulder season.
