Golf has long been a popular sport, attracting over 66.6 million players and even more fans from around the globe. The golf course is where deals are struck, bets are won, and friendships blossom, and while some golfers are only casual followers, others are ardent devotees who long to play on some of the best courses in the world. For them, the TPC Network is home to bucket-list adventures where golf dreams come true. TPC courses are some of the best in the world, some offering everyday golfers a chance to play where the greats have teed-off.
TPC stands for Tournament Players Club and the TPC Network is a collection of golf courses that are operated by the PGA Tour. These TPC courses, both public and private, are where the PGA tournaments are held, bringing some of the greatest names in golf to diverse courses around North America. The TPC Network signals the courses that are ready for tournament and championship play.
The TPC Network is a big name in the golf world, but TPC Courses are relatively few. Of the more than 11,000 courses in North America, only 32 belong to the TPC Network, largely due in fact to the strict requirements these courses are held to. Not only must they be designed for PGA Tournament play by some of the most legendary golf architects, but they must also maintain environmentally-friendly practices throughout their construction and day to day operations, be ready to host PGA level tournaments, and promote giving back, either through charitable events or community based programs. These golf courses are challenging, but they allow the everyday golfer to play where the greats have competed, a dream come true for most who love the sport.
Sample TPC Courses:
The majority of TPC Courses are located in the United States, most situated in the south, midwest, and eastern states. The first TPC course was established in 1980 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Florida. From there the TPC Network has expanded to include other courses in the United States (Florida, Louisiana, Texas, California, Michigan, Colorado, Massachusetts, Illinois, New Jersey, Nevada, South Carolina, North Carolina, Connecticut, Maryland, Ohio, Arizona, Tennessee, Georgia, Minnesota, and Wisconsin), and just a few in other countries, such as in TPC Toronto in Osprey Valley Ontario, Canada, TPC Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico, and TPC Danzante Bay in Loreto, Mexico.

More than half of TPC Courses are private clubs closed to the public, the remainder, 14 courses, are resort clubs that have a daily course fee for those wishing to golf on a championship course. One of the more recent courses to enter the TPC Network is TPC Danzante Bay, which is part of the luxury golf resort Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto. The stunning course, which sits perched on the cliffs and rolling hills of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains in Loreto, Mexico is a recreational paradise for those staying at the resort.
