Solo trip to TPC Sawgrass?

Hi guys. I’m based in the UK and planning to start ticking off my bucket list courses. First up is TPC Sawgrass, which I’m planning to do solo. I have no mates willing to shell out for the trip and a 1 year old daughter so the wife will stay home with her.

Has anyone stayed at the Sawgrass resort solo before? I’m fine with playing with strangers, but I’m not sure the resort will be great for a solo. Would be spending 5 days there. 

Lastly, any recommendations for other courses in that area? Is the valley course worth it?

Thanks in advance!

The PGA hall of Fame is nearby, as well as the two courses on the property- "The King and The Bear" and "The Slammer and The Squire". That area is filled with other things to do for all kinds of people. St. Augustine has it's history. A reasonable drive away is Cape Canaveral and The Kennedy Space Center (which, IMO, is a cant miss if you're that close).

You won't be wanting for something to do or somewhere to play. Maybe you will catch on to a group of buddies on their own trip and make some friends that way. Happened to me in Myrtle Beach one year, I met up with some guys and wound up playing with them a couple of times the rest of the week.

Was planning a trip to the hall of fame, although I’ve not consider the space centre. That’s actually a great shout. Thanks!

No problem- if you go to the KSC, try to book online ahead of your visit if you know which day you want to go. It's very popular, and you may have to wait around for hours to get on a bus tour if you just show up. If not, check with the concierge at the resort, they might have connections.

Look at the courses just south of there in Palm Coast as well.  The Conservatory is a personal favorite.

Less 45 south, just off the highway in Daytona is also LPGA International, with 2 good courses and an outstanding practice facility.
