Set amidst lush landscapes and Atlantic beachfront shores, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club invites golfers to put themselves to the test on its two championship 18-hole golf courses with its new Unlimited Golf Package. Designed in 1928 by famed British architect Herbert Bertram Strong, the Ocean Course is a par-72, 6,811-yard course, with 99 strategically positioned sand bunkers. A par-70 course, the 6,022-yard Lagoon Course was co-authored by two design geniuses – Robert Trent Jones with the front nine holes in 1961, and Joe Lee with the back nine holes in 1977. In 2007, Bobby Weed fully restored the layout, including new tees, fairways and greens, routing changes on several hotels, new turf standards, improved irrigation and drainage, and a greatly enhanced landscape theme where water is a dominant feature on 11 holes. The resort complements its golf offerings with newly-refreshed oversized guest rooms and suites, most overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The luxury resort also offers nine restaurants, bars and lounges ranging from gourmet to casual; 15 Har-Tru hydro tennis courts; three oceanfront pools; and a 30,000 square foot luxury spa. The Unlimited Golf Package is available for two guests per reservation and starts at $259 per night. Cart fees are not included.
