General Information

THE PLAYERS Championship 2023

What's New in 2023


The PGA TOUR will have a new app and mobile experience that's more interactive, bringing mobile users closer to the championship than ever before. The app will feature:

Two-Tier Stadium Coming to Iconic 16th and 17th Holes

Adding to the already electric atmosphere of the most iconic finishing stretch in golf, the venues surrounding the 16th and 17th holes will be expanded to a double-decker structure and will provide spectators with over 131,000 square feet of premium hospitality space and will accommodate thousands of fans. The reimagined stadium seating will feature the all-new Championship Club presented by Lexus, which will offer the ultimate vantage point to one of the most famous holes in golf.

Located at the Nicklaus and Couples entry, THE PLAYERS is offering free fan lockers so that fans can conveniently and safely store belongings.

Reminder: THE PLAYERS does adhere to a strict clear bag policy

Brand-New Sustainable Sawgrass Splash Cup

As part of the PGA TOUR’s commitment to leading the advancement of sustainability in the industry, THE PLAYERS will be serving the tournament’s signature drink, the Sawgrass Splash featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka, in a lightweight, aluminum cup. Aluminum is the most sustainable beverage packaging material, and like aluminum cans, aluminum cups can be easily recycled; the 16 oz cups are lightweight, sturdy, cool to the touch and provide an elevated drinking experience for all fans. While the cup is changing, the iconic Sawgrass Splash is staying the same; the drink will continue to feature Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and a refreshing combination of orange juice, lemonade and lime juice.

Expanded Fan Area at 8th green/9th tee

The fan area near the 8th green and 9th tee has been expanded and will now be home to The Oasis featuring the Tito’s Stillhouse Lounge. The Oasis offers an enclosed lounge with premium sightlines of the newly reimagined 9th tee. The lounge also features fun additions for fans, including a putting green, Golden Tee retro arcade game, custom murals, TVs with live broadcasts of the tournament and more!

Stadium Village Enhancements

Reimagined for the 2023 Championship, THE PLAYERS Stadium Village will bring the return of the 17th Hole Challenge presented by the Proud Partners and the enhanced PGA TOUR Fan Shop as well as the all-new “Bar 904” which will feature classic drinks and a fun place for fans to gather.

Fan Shop Expansion

The PGA TOUR Fan Shop in the Stadium Village has increased in size and is now over 36,500 square feet and features endless exciting merchandise for fans to choose from. Here are a few highlights:

New Food Partners

Driven by a commitment to reflect Northeast Florida and its offerings, THE PLAYERS annually features local restaurants at the championship. New in 2023 will be The G.O.A.T. Tapas Bar, which will be bringing flavors from around the world to THE PLAYERS. Maestro Dobel Tequila will also be introducing a new cocktail for the tournament, the Dobel Ace Paloma Cocktail.


While every hour spent at the world-famous Stadium Course is a happy one, Michelob ULTRA is taking happy hour to a new level, with their brand-new ULTRA Hour promotion; fans can expect an exciting surprise drink special on Michelob ULTRA products throughout the week of the tournament.

Fan Code of Conduct

Etiquette and respect for fellow competitors is one of the first things golfers learn when playing the sport. It's ingrained in the competition. Players often applaud their competitors on the golf course, call penalties on themselves, move out of their line of site to remain still and silent when other players are hitting, etc. As such, we hope that the fans at THE PLAYERS Championship will show their pride at hosting this event and their community by applying the same standards to how they act as spectators. We all have pride in hosting one of the biggest sporting events in the world in our backyard. We want to make sure that pride shines through during tournament week. Our code of conduct can be found below:

Spectators will be subject to expulsion and the loss of ticket privileges for the following breaches of etiquette:
