PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- The unique property on Sawgrass was built solely because of fan feedback.

Location, location, location. Walk out the front door you get views of both 10 and 16.

And it was built to look like the clubhouse, something THE PLAYERS Championship executive director Matt Rapp is very proud of.

"We really want things to have a consistent look and we spent a lot of time and money to get it right," Rapp said.

But this isn't some millionaire's home, or rich vacationer's golf escape. These are new bathrooms.

"It's seems a little funny to be talking about bathrooms and the favorite features. It's touchless, so water comes on with a hand sensor. I think one of the things fans will find really interesting is there is a filtered water station on either side on the side entryways. So you can buy one bottle of water out here and refill for free," Rapp said.

And these are permanent, only open and available to fans during THE PLAYERS.

"It's really about the fan experience."  

Built from fan feedback after the biggest complaint: not enough bathrooms on the course.
Now there are two of these at the Stadium. For a little luxury and comfort in a very private moment.
