American Express Invitational
The TPC at Prestancia was the site of the former American Express Invitational from 1996-2000.
TPC at PrestanciaSituated on 565 lush, sylvan acres in Sarasota, Fla., the Tournament Players Club at Prestancia represents the quintessential golf and residential community created with great care and attention to balance and detail.
The present club is a combination of old and new, created in 1984 when the PGA TOUR took over The Country Club of Sarasota and added to its existing 18 holes a second 18-hole championship layout designed by Mike Souchak and Ron Garl.
The Stadium Course, the fourth in the TPC network, is a traditional TPC layout that melds signature TPC characteristics with the designers’ personal philosophies. Open areas behind the greens frame the holes and temper the traditional stadium mounding look. Short holes have more demanding greens and longer ones more gentle. The fairways are generous. One-third of the holes feature water hazards, while bunker use is varied but reserved. Old stands of trees add to the challenge on the 6,927-yard, par-72 design.
While swimming and tennis are also available in a community conveniently located less than two miles from the ocean, the TPC at Prestancia is devoted to the pursuit of golf, an experience complemented by a grand, Mediterranean style clubhouse and generous multi-purpose practice facility.
