PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- On Monday through Wednesday, as in previous years, fans can still park for free in the general parking lot and no parking pass is required. Thursday-Sunday, however, fans are encouraged to purchase parking in advance ($25 per day general parking and $45 per day preferred parking near the Nicklaus Gate).

You can buy parking passes in advance at Publix or online.  Remember, the Publix at Sawgrass Village is closed for renovation.  Those who arrive without a parking pass may experience delays to their entering the tournament experience and will be charged $40 (versus $25) to park.

Other enhancements include additional and better signage, as well as widening the entry to the main parking lot at THE PLAYERS to allow for more processing lanes, ensuring the quickest entry/exit to and from the tournament for all fans.

Use CR 210/Nocatee Parkway

Due to heavy traffic congestion on A1A Southbound, THE PLAYERS encourages fans along the I-95 corridor and I-295 beltway to utilize the “Recommended Route” via C.R. 210/Nocatee Parkway. This route approaches the parking area from the south and avoids traffic on JTB/A1A.

Directions to THE PLAYERS via the Recommended Route: Take I-95 to exit 329 - CR 210 east; Turn on CR 210 east (3.3 miles); Turn left on US 1 north (1.3 miles); Merge right on Nocatee Parkway (6.9 miles); At traffic circle, follow CR 210 by taking 3rd exit onto Palm Valley Road; General parking is on left.

Shuttles

The City of Jacksonville will provide shuttles from downtown-area hotels to TPC Sawgrass for THE PLAYERS, Wednesday through Sunday of tournament week. Shuttles from the Hyatt, Omni, Crowne Plaza and Wyndham will be available to hotel guests, but also open for residents to “park and ride,” providing a convenient and cost-effective way for fans to get to and from the tournament. More details on times and routes will be available in the near future.

Taxis to The Players

THE PLAYERS is also streamlining the process for taking a cab to and from the tournament. New this year, THE PLAYERS has designated Ace Transportation Group, a local taxi company, as the preferred taxi service. There are designated taxi stands outside the Davis Love Gate (on the Clubhouse side) and outside the Fred Couples Gate near ATP Blvd. Fans should call Ace Transportation Group at 904-246-9999 for taxi service.

DOT Assistance

THE PLAYERS is working more closely than ever with officials from St. Johns County, SJCSO, JSO and Florida Highway Patrol in the development of a streamlined traffic flow pattern and improved traffic light management on A1A.

THE PLAYERS has also teamed up with The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to encourage fans traveling to and from the tournament to use FDOT’s 511 Traveler Information System for traffic information on crashes, congestion, construction and more. FDOT provides up-to-date information on traffic conditions throughout the Jacksonville area, including those areas affected by fans traveling to THE PLAYERS. Residents and fans driving in the area where traffic may be an issue can get free information by calling 511 toll free, visiting FL511.com, downloading the free Florida 511 mobile app or following FL511 on Twitter @FL511_northeast.

Pedal to The Players

Fans are also encouraged to pedal to THE PLAYERS. The National MS Society will once again offer Bike Valet services during competition rounds, Thursday-Sunday, from 7:30 a.m. until end of play. Spectators can ride their bikes to the Couples Gate off of ATP Blvd. or to the Love III Gate located inside the Sawgrass Gates. MS Society volunteers will secure and monitor the bikes. A $5 donation per bike to the MS Society is appreciated.
