Ponte Vedra Golf and Country Club At Sawgrass
The course was very well maintained. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The beer/snack cart woman did an exceptional job. This was the first time I played a course and saw one make their rounds as many times as she did, which was very nice. The greens are well kept, as are the fairways, but the course has more water than any course I've played. Almost every hole seems to be built around water, which is something myself and the group I play with doesn't particularly enjoy. Overall, great course to play, and a friendly staff to to help. Would recommend this course to friends.

It wasn't taken care of. The greens, sand traps were in bad shape. The rough and fringe around the greens had large amounts of grass clippings. I will not play here again and will not recommend this course to anyone.

Good Course - Gret Value
My son and I were looking for a Saturday morning round before settling in for college football. We were a little worried when we got to the course and they were backed up 1/2 hour and had no carts. The staff, however, did a great job turning carts around and getting us out. The course was not manicured by any stretch but nice enough. Fairways were good. Greens a little patchy and fuzzy. The place just needs a little attention to details...weeds in the cart paths and some shaggy areas that need trimming. The best thing about the day was that we were expecting rain and it held off for almost the entire round. Just a few showers late. For this rate, I will definitely be back.

Great layout great staff great experience
First and foremost the staff are great everyone has been great to deal with. The course itself has a phenomenal layout and very fun to play. It has a hood amount of variety in the kinds of shots that you can play throughout the round. The tee boxes were ok as were the greens but you can definitely tell where they were much worse earlier in the summer. The greens had been recently aerated so they were a little inconsistent but they are making a comeback for sure under the new superintendent . The fairways and rough were in excellent condition. Bunkers for the most part are in pretty good shape considering the amount of rain we have had the last month. Overall great course excellent staff and a good value for $30 or less to play a Arnie design.

This course blows!
This golf course used to be in great condition with very fast, smooth greens. It's a complete joke now. There are weeds growing on some of the greens and most of the fairways. Some of the greens still have sandy patches in them. If you find anything resembling sand in a bunker, consider yourself lucky. Most bunkers are nothing more than crusted over hard pan. To describe the place in one word...PATHETIC!

Another golf course trying its best during difficult times.
Having read the uncomplimentary reviews of Ponte Vedra course we were expecting the worst. However, there was clear evidence that the course management had tried their best to maintain a playable course for their members and visitors. Greens were a bit "woolly" and slow and the fairways weren't the best in Florida but in our case we were delight with the warm welcome and still enjoyed a challenging game.
Good luck to Ponte Vedra as they try to maintain a course with less finances and players than in previous years. Hopefully this well defined course will recover in the not too distant future.

Fair value for the money
This course has so much potential, but needs a lot of attention to maintenance. Greens were very inconsistent. Fairways were weed prone and needed a good mowing. Looks like it has slipped over the years. Too bad. It could have some really great features.
