If golf is your thing, Ponte Vedra Beach is the place to be! Great weather, great people, and an abundance of golf options packed into a tiny, resort-like community. The question isn't "Will I see a PGA player?" but "HOW MANY"? Because every March, TPC Sawgrass hosts THE PLAYERS Championship tournament, which typically includes the top-ranked players. Of course, you can buy a home in TPC Sawgrass and play year-round 😄. TPC Sawgrass has two public courses: Stadium and Dye's Valley. My favorite tournament memory is sitting at the iconic 17th hole next to some college kids who held their drink cups high and begged for a hole-in-one just before this happened: Shane Lowry. I swear it's true, college kids ordered up Shane Lowry's ace. Find TPC homes for sale here.
Just across the way from TPC Sawgrass and closer to the beach is Sawgrass Country Club. There are 28 neighborhoods in Sawgrass CC and three private golf courses: East Course, West Course, and South Course. Many homes and condos have beautiful views of the golf courses, and Spinnaker, Windemere, and Hallmark condos are near the ocean (Windemere and Hallmark have elevators).

The Marsh Landing community sits on the north end of Ponte Vedra Beach and is popular with those who commute to downtown or Mayo Clinic areas as it has easy access to John Turn Butler (JTB/Hwy 202). Oh, and golf! And a marina for boaters! And more! You can join the Marsh Landing Country Club and enjoy a round of golf on the 18-hole Marsh Landing course. You can find Marsh Landing homes for sale here.
Two of the most popular golf courses in Ponte Vedra can be found at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. The Ocean and Lagoon courses wind their way through the charming homes of Old Ponte Vedra. Buy a house here and you may fall asleep to the sound of the ocean surf. Most homes in the area are a quick walk away from an ocean access point and the highly sought-after oceanfront houses are found along luxurious Ponte Vedra Blvd.
Crazy about golf? Like, really, really, love to play golf A LOT? Let's get you a luxury home in The Plantation at Ponte Vedra Beach.

Every day can be a golf day at The Plantation. You can find homes for sale in The Plantation at Ponte Vedra Beach here.
Two other popular public golf courses are Palm Valley Golf Course and The Yards, both 9-hole courses. Well, sort of. Arnold Palmer initially designed the Yards as a 9-hold course, but they added a Backyard course with three holes because you can never have enough golf. So that's right, The Front Yard course and Backyard combine to create a 12-hole course. That's how we do it in Ponte Vedra Beach.
