TPC Golf Courses

<center>We're looking forward to playing these San Antonio golf courses at the PGA Tour's new TPC by AT&T. </center>

It’s one thing for a corporate sponsor to get its name on a golf tournament, but the course itself? That’s rare. And, in my opinion, tacky and just plain wrong.

Well, in its increasing desire to join the corporate party being enjoyed by other major sports organizations, the PGA Tour announced yesterday that it sold the naming rights to its two new San Antonio golf courses to AT&T.

You can take in Timberlake's tournament on a Las Vegas golf vacation.

By now, you’ve probably read or heard plenty of funny reactions to the news that Justin Timberlake will be hosting the PGA Tour’s annual Las Vegas event, which, as of this year, became part of the tour’s Fall Series (a nice way of saying, “the tournaments that take place after the all-important FedEx Cup.”)

One of the funniest I read was Golfblogger’s take on it, framed as one of the “signs of the apocalypse” and backed up with a few lines from none other than Nostradamus.

Head for the hills: the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort is the best for a San Antonio golf vacation.

La Cantera Resort gets a lot of attention because the PGA Tour plays the Texas Open there (this week, in fact), but as we wrote in our free, special report about taking a San Antonio golf vacation:

As far as the destination resorts go, you will fare much better at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort, across the street from Sea World San Antonio.

Designed to fit its setting, the resort is a rough-hewn, wrought iron and pine, Hill Country-themed retreat. Its Arthur Hills course is the region’s highlight, and something of a sleeper; at first glance it appears subdued, but as you play it you quickly appreciate the intricacies of the routing and the many strategic decisions found throughout.

The Players Stadium Course is back to its bold self.

After a nearly nine-month layoff, you can once again include the famed TPC Sawgrass in your Florida golf vacation plans.

The crown jewel of the PGA Tour’s golf course network, the newly named Players Stadium Course (formerly the Stadium Course) at TPC Sawgrass reopened this week following closure for extensive renovations.

The Tour no longer stops at TPC Myrtle Beach, but it's a vital visit during a Myrtle Beach golf vacation.

Located at the southern end of The Grand Strand in Murrells Inlet, S.C., you’ll find one of the top-10 Myrtle Beach golf courses you can play on a Myrtle Beach Golf Vacation.

The TPC Myrtle Beach might not technically be “where the Tour plays” anymore (it hasn’t hosted a Tour event since the then-named Senior PGA Tour Championship in 2000), but the Tom Fazio design hasn’t lost its luster and any golfer worth his wedge would be happy to play it. And, unlike most of the TPC courses that do host the pros, this one is open to the public.

Any golfer who cherishes playing the world’s great courses will find the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass to be one of the great treats of a Florida golf vacation.

(If you’d like my full review and all my insider tips on visiting TPC Sawgrass, you can get them now in the free guide below.)

Architect Pete Dye’s lustrous Stadium Course — a must-play links on a Florida golf vacation ever since the Players Championship started calling it home in 1982 — is full of unforgettable risk/reward holes.

With its infamous 130-yard, par-3 17th hole surrounded by water, the Stadium Course provides one of golf’s signature playing experiences.

And while the 17th etches the Stadium Course into our consciousness, any number of other holes merit raves and induce comparable amounts of terror.

No matter what other courses you play on your Florida golf vacation, the Stadium Course overshadows them.

In fact, the Stadium Course is so good, with so many memorable holes, it is worth noting that when planning a Florida golf vacation, two rounds at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass beat any other combination of courses near Ponte Vedra Beach every time.
