I was told they overseeded the greens. Oversees fairways as well, and rough left dormant?
I guess even for Florida I am a little surprised to hear greens were as firm as you stated. Not overly fast....... fair speed, but not intimidating type speed, or had to muscle putts to get them to the hole?
Do you think the slow round would have been better had you walked?
Which tees did you play?
Most importantly, did you hit the green on 17?
I know thatís a lot of extra questions, I apologize.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your rounds. My dad and I are looking forward to it. He has sent me texts on numerous occasions trying to decide which tees he wants to play.

I'm not sure that walking would have helped with the amount of time we waited for every shot on the back nine.. It was cart path only and that didn't help the pace.
We played the blue tees. I did hit the green on 17 and made a long putt ffrom the front of the green to a back pin for birdie.

Very good. If it were 7,200 yards itíd be tougher than the stadium

It was my first real visit to the TPC so I arrived early. Had breakfast on the back patio with the sun coming up over 18. The production of setting up all the grandstands is in full effect. So on certain holes, you get a little bit of the feeling like the pros experience.
The golf course was in superb shape I thought for February. As the Sunbelt mentioned, the rough still had a little of dormant spots, it was starting to come in nicely and had some gnarly spots. Fairways were pure and the ball sat up nicely. You got roll out in the fairways but not dry and crusty. The greens were also very very nice. Havenít dropped the played to tour speeds, but rolled true and had a little pace to them.
Pace of play was 5 hrs which actually could have been faster. Two of the players in our group struggled a little on the back, but we didnít feel held up or pushe. I can see how hard that course could be for the tour guys with tall rough, firm fast conditions and a good breeze. There a places around the greens you just canít miss.
I did hit the green on 17. The tees were slightly up (played 129 to a middle pin). They had pretty much the entire back teeing area roped of for the tourney. Here are a couple photos. Definitely glad I had the opportunity. There is also some cool history in the clubhouse, so if you donít feel youíll get there again, or often, take your time and look around.
