Golf course at Ponte Vedra Beach Resorts

Golf has been a way of life in Ponte Vedra Beach since the Inn introduced the first course to the region in 1928.

Today, Ponte Vedra is recognized as one of the golf capitals of the East Coast. The Ocean Course and Lagoon Course (located on-site at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club) each feature a distinct seaside links flavor. Meandering lagoons, undulating fairways, elevated Bermuda greens protected by steep-faced bunkers and a prevailing sea breeze provide for every kind of challenge imaginable. All 14 clubs are required here!

Guests at sister resort, The Lodge & Club (located 1.5 miles south), enjoy playing and charging privileges at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

OCEAN COURSE

Skip OCEAN COURSE

Designed in 1928 by famed British architect Herbert Bertram Strong, the par-72, 6,811-yard Ocean Course represents the area's first resort golf experience.

Lacking earth moving equipment, Strong used 100 mules dragging slip pans to shape course contours, dredge lagoons and build up a series of earthen mounds that dot the fairways, creating dramatic undulations.

Praise has followed the Ocean Course from the very beginning. In 1939, the Ocean Course was selected to host the prestigious Ryder Cup Match, an event that was unfortunately cancelled due to the onset of World War II. In 1942, after completing a match, golf legend Bobby Jones commented, "It's a course to challenge professionals." Five times in its history, the Ocean Course has proudly served as the site for the U.S. Open qualifying round.

The Ocean Course's 99 strategically positioned sand bunkers enhance the beauty and challenge of the golf experience. Designed to accommodate defensive pin positions, the elevated greens place a demand on thoughtful and accurate approach shots.

- Herbert Bertram Strong, 1928

LAGOON COURSE

Skip LAGOON COURSE

Ponte Vedra's second test of golf is the Lagoon Course, a 6,022-yard, par-70 masterpiece co-authored by two design geniuses — Robert Trent Jones with the front nine holes (1961) and Joe Lee with the back nine holes (1977).

In 2007, renowned architect Bobby Weed fully restored and enhanced the layout, adding further character and challenge to the golf experience. The restoration included new tees, fairways and greens, routing changes on several holes, new turf standards, improved irrigation and drainage, and a greatly enhanced landscaping theme. The restoration branded the Lagoon Course with its own unique identity while nicely complementing the Ocean Course.

The course, although not especially long, places a premium on accurate drives and thoughtful approaches. Water is definitely the dominant feature with a mosaic of lakes and lagoons threatening golfers on 11 holes. Tall pines, palms and ancient, sprawling oaks form the contours of this lushly landscaped course. Kept in immaculate condition, the fairways are narrow and the greens small and fast.

- First Nine by Robert Trent Jones, 1961
- Second Nine by Joe Lee, 1978
- Restored and remodeled by Bobby Weed, 2007
