Ponte Vedra Beach
If beautiful beaches, world class tennis, and professional golf appeal to you, then Ponte Vedra is your neighborhood. You will find the ambiance of a small town here, but with the flavor of sophistication found in larger cities. The beaches are among the prettiest in Florida. Here seaside resorts and private escapes are crested in the twisted oaks and hammocks of wild palmettos. Miles of freshwater streams, creeks and lagoons course through the natural environs accentuating the natural beauty of the beaches. Just inland, some of the most prestigious and scenic golf courses in the world attract professional tournaments including the PGA TOUR’S “fifth” major, THE PLAYERS Championship, with a 6 million dollar purse. Ponte Vedra Beach hosts the seventh best resort course in America by Golf Digest, the 6,857-yard TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course with its notoriously difficult island green, one of the “World’s Most Photographed Holes.” After having your fill of golf, grab your racquet and play a few sets at one of the 44 professional caliber tennis courts. The ATP headquarters tennis center has eleven courts emulating the surfaces of the Grand Slam tournaments, including red clay and fresh grass. The Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, Sawgrass Marriott Resort & Spa, and The Lodge & Club at Ponte Vedra Beach also have courts. Other activities available nearby include deep sea and freshwater charters for those interested in fishing, as well as sailing, windsurfing and jet-ski rentals for the more active vacationers. On nature walks, the careful eye may glimpse a loggerhead turtle or one of the 177 species of birds.
