The home of the Professional Golf Association (PGA) in the luxury community of Ponta Vedra Beach is the first taste of the pampered life here. THE PLAYERS Championship, golf’s highest prize fee tournament, takes over the community and the golfing world each spring since 1977. The tournament is held on the Stadium Course at the "Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass" (TPC).
THE PLAYERS Championship field usually includes the top 50 golfers in world rankings. Luxury hotels abound in Ponte Vedra Beach, dubbed “the best place to live in Florida,” by Money Magazine.
Whether playing a round of championship course golf, luxuriating at the spas, shops, pools or beaches; Ponta Vedra Beach is a world-class luxury lover’s destination. Visit www.pgatour.com/tournaments for tournament information.
At 3.3 miles: heading south on the byway.
If you’re planning to visit the public beaches down the road for surfing, swimming or just sunbathing, pick up supplies in Ponte Vedra’s first three miles of retail stores.
Located in Ponte Vedra Beach, at 1.8 miles is Bird Island Park, a lovely passive park adjacent to the city’s library.
