Project Description

Ponte Vedra Beach has an estimated 30,000 people living in unincorporated seaside communities in St. Johns County, Florida. Located eighteen miles southeast of downtown Jacksonville and 26 miles north of St. Augustine, it is part of the Jacksonville Beaches area. Ponte Vedra Beach is an upper-income tourist resort area best known for its association with golf and is home to the PGA Tour and The Players Championship, played at the TPC at Sawgrass, as well as the ATP Tour. The area is known for its resorts including the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club (a AAA five diamond resort), the Lodge and Club (four diamonds), and the Marriott at Sawgrass (three diamonds). It also lies in the third-wealthiest county in Florida, ranking just behind Palm Beach County and Collier County (Naples). In 1972, real estate developers attempted to bring positive attention to the area and the Sawgrass developers offered a 400-acre tract of land to Deane Beman for only $1. He couldn’t refuse this One Dollar Deal, and Sawgrass became the home of the Tournament Players Championship and the headquarters for the PGA Tour
