I've played Sawgrass twice, and enjoyed both times. It was in great condition and the service was top notch. A little pricey but, you can get deals if you watch out for them. It's a tough course and I would expect a pretty slow round. A gentlemen in the group in front of us insisted on getting a ball on the 17th green from the tee box and hit several balls in the drink (I remember 12-13). I would imagine if things were packed that a ranger would prevent that but, it was mid-summer (HOT) and pretty slow that day. Plus, we had fun with him (or at his expense) but, he took it well. All in all, it's a great experience and well worth playing. BTW...I'm even on 17, two pars.
