Ponte Vedra Beach - a view from The Lodge

Stay

Tucked away on the northeast coast of Florida at Ponte Vedra Beach, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and the Lodge & Club together comprise a picturesque getaway known best for being home to the PGA Tour, The Players Championship, and ATP Tour. As a famous resort town, Ponte Vedra serves up gorgeous ocean views and green fairways that would allure any visitor; golf lover or not.

Just a short drive from Jacksonville, the resort’s 40-foot sand dunes are some of the highest in the state and level into white sand made of Appalachian quartz and ancient limestone. For Charlotteans, you can take a direct flight that puts you right around an hour, or you can drive for what is around a six hour road trip.

Amongst the freshwater streams, creeks and lagoons stands Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and the Lodge & Club (a physically separate but connected resort) beloved for its exclusive gold standard resort, golf, tennis, spa and recreational offerings.

With a track record of over 90 years of southern hospitality, Ponte Vedra’s Lodge, Inn, and Club all have epic ocean views, 300 acres of limitless amenities, and truly world-class service. 

Eat

At the resort: Surf Deck Grill is a fantastic choice to enjoy a panoramic view, Florida coastal cuisine, and drink menu consisting of cocktails, beer, wine, and beachy options. Don’t you dare leave without trying the Cheddar Bacon Hush Puppies. 

Upscale but casual, Seahorse Grille boasts a staircase that coils around a two-story, sea-themed glasswork. If that doesn’t impress you, the wraparound aquarium and warm wood atmosphere will. Enjoy an artful, imaginative menu. For an extra special evening, reserve the “Chef’s Table” that seats four, offers a direct view of Chef de Cuisine Erik Osol, and features a 10-course tasting menu. 

Wear your best to the Seafoam Room for luxurious dining with oversized oceanfront windows, a vaulted ceiling, a dreamy fireplace, oil paintings, and rich wood. 

Further options: Golf Club Dining Room, Inn Dining Room, Sea View Grille, or Seafoam Room.

Drink

At the resort: Admire the lively, sophisticated lounge at The Tavern for craft, stylish cocktails and a beer selection. Take in the cozy atmosphere while mingling, playing pool, or catching a game on the widescreen HD TVs. 

Explore the Surf Deck Patio for an oceanfront breeze to enjoy while surveying the beachy drink options. You’ll be steps away from the pools and hot tubs so we recommend getting a frozen beverage for an optimal tropical experience.

Further options:  Seahorse Grille Bar and The Golf Club Bar.

See

At the resort: Staying somewhere as beautiful as the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club means you’re going to have a lot to look at no matter what you do. Admire the elegant interior from one of the resort’s four heated swimming pools or any of the ten buildings the inn is comprised of. Admire the miles of the beautiful Atlantic with a beach rental: kayak, paddle-board, beach bicycle cruiser, and more. See the ocean while you’re in it for surfing or retreat to the beach for a picnic or games. Feast your eyes upon the 30,000 square foot spa that provides a sensory overload and stunning interior.
