Ponte Vedra Golf and Country Club At Sawgrass
Good course, improved condition
This is a very nice layout with many challenging holes, especially a fine grouping of par threes. The condition has improved quite a lot since a year ago and is now better than average. A very good test but not punishing.

The course was in good shape very easy to chip the ball lots of lush grass, the greens were a littile slow but consistent. I will definately return.

Best Value in Jax
Overall, you just can't beat the price.... There are other courses in the area that are priced around the same as this PVGCC but are not well maintained and not as challenging. Advice to the novice, bring a lot of extra balls, water everywhere. Will challenge skilled golfers but not too overbearing for the occaisional player as well. Just an all around great course, no complaints here...

Beautiful course with a lot of water. The staff was great.

For the money spent this was a great value. I was very pleased with pace of play and the course condition. Tight track, not a lot of room to spray your tee shots.

Interesting course.Great value for the money.
Starting at 8:06 we could not use the driving range (because it was not open) and had to cope with the inconvenience of water sprinklers on three fairways. Nevertheless it was an interesting course that most certainly invites to play again.

Always the bridesmaid never the bride.
The Sawgrass course that never quite lives up to its PGA neighbors. Do not overlook this course, it has a lot to offer with a good Arnold Palmer design and fair conditioning. Bunkers are in desperate need of sand but tee to green conditioning is fair. Good facilities but clubhouse is a bit dated. $30-40 represents good value however so well worth a visit.

The course has a nice layout but the fairways are in horrible shape.
From the moment I arrived and walked into the pro shop I could tell that it was a poorly run operation. The person behind the counter was not real friendly. The so called pro shop looked like a store that was going out of business that day. The fairways were just plain yuck. The greens however were not bad at all. I personally will never play this course again at any price in the condition it was in.

Very nice course in good condition.
I enjoyed playing the course but was surprised that they let me me play alone when I said this was the first time I played there.

No carts available at check-in. Greens should be faster.
At check-in no carts were available for about an hour. The staff did not provide true and useful information about the situation. Course was average. Greens should be faster for a more enjoyable game.

Have played this course several times in the past, always enjoyable
Staff friendly, greens in very good condition, fairways a little sparse but that is no different than the majority of courses this Winter.

Much better than expected!
Tough par 3's and the front is more difficult than the back.
A good test of golf.
March 20, 2013
Course is in great shape!
I 'm recommending this to all.............

Great course and price is right.
Can't beat the course for the rate you can get on from golf now.

A nice test of an older course.
This is an older course and a test of your skills. It had a period of time when it was not being given much attention to it's maintainence. Play was difficult and losing it's charm.
However, things are turning around and being cared for, so the fun is returning too. Give it a return visit and enjoy the play once again.

Decent winter conditions
I didn't have extremely high expectations for this course considering it's March, but it is located next to 2 of the best courses in Jax (Dye's Valley, TPC Stadium @ Sawgrass) so the bar is set high. A tight, fun layout, there is a lot of hidden trouble that unless you have course knowledge, it's tough to navigate around.
The greens need attention in some areas but otherwise roll well. Fairways were in winter condition, sand was very thin in all bunkers.
Clubhouse has a very late 80's, early 90's feel. Definitely worth it for anything less than $35. More than $40 unless it's a Sat/Sun morning and I'd look elsewhere.

very challenging for a short layout
nice course for $25. It would have been nice to have a beverage cart out there
March 8, 2013
Good Value....I guess
The course has a nice layout and usually good rates. The greens are usually average at best, but have been much better lately.
March 5, 2013
Very tight and challeging
Beautiful and well kept for this time of year. Only one green was rough, I enjoyed the round. The price was very affordable, and even had free coffee.
March 3, 2013
Fun but not easy
The course was soggy wet from recent rains making maintenance difficult. A few greens were littered with leaves and tree debris that couldn't be blown off thus making long putts even harder. The course was difficult to par due to these conditions and the tough pin placements but nonetheless was fun to play. The layout is quite attractive and although located in a residential community most of the homes are set back far enough to not be an issue.
A very reasonable price of $29 per person including cart can be found online.

Not a particularly memorable track , but a very good value for the money. Some very rundown housing along the front nine somewhat tarnish the feel.
Greens were in rough shape on several holes. They need to refresh their rental club selection. Ball washers need attention. Electric carts were really fast! Friendly staff, very accommodating!

Fun old style course
I enjoyed this course. It reminded me of an old style layout. The course was in pretty good condition. The only problem was slow play. There was a threesome two groups in front of us that had the whole course backed up. I did get to meet some nice people though as we were joined by the group behind us on quite a few tee boxes while we were waiting. Finally saw a Ranger with about two holes to go. I would definitely play here again. Good course for the money.

Bring "A" Game
This course with water, traps and overhanging trees will force you to play all your shots. Would love to be able to hit the ball with curve (both ways) with height (low/high) and with back spin. If you have a weakness in your game, PVGC will expose it. Felt great in that I only lost 1 ball. Think this course is one of the best values in the area.

The course appears to need attention and watering
Some of the greens have sand spots on them and others are spotty. It appears that the course in general needs watering. Pace of play slowed progressively. Too many singles and twosomes.
February 20, 2013
Very well maintained.
Played a quick round from the tips. Par 70 course, that was in very good shape. Very well maintained, even though the greens were a little slow. I'll take slow and well maintained over fast and inconsistent. Overall great value and experience. Would play again.

A shadow of what it used to be. Great layout in classic Ponte Vedra. Course not in great shape at all but still playable. Play during the week for a fast round, not weekend.
February 11, 2013
Well maintained value
Having never played this course, I had no expectations at all & I was pleasantly surprised. The course was in reasonably good shape, given the time of year & the fact that they had hosted a tourney earlier the same day. It required prudent shot placement, good course management skills, and was breathtakingly beautiful . Although there were areas for improvement (many of the sand traps were a mess, the greens had numerous ball marks, etc.), for $25 on a weekend, this was a really great find. I look forward to getting back again soon.

MID-WINTER CONDITIONS LESS THAN OPTIMAL
Most greens require water or bunker carries. Pars demand good drives and approaches. Winter fairways are bony, and fringe grasses are difficult to chip cleanly. Green speeds are predictable. Play can be slow because of foursomes with nothing better to do for the day.

GREAT LAYOUT...HAVE TO BE ABLE TO MOVE THE BALL. FUN TO PLAY.
OUT EARLY. FAST PACE. IF THIS COURSE WERE IN JUST A LITTLE BETTER SHAPE IT WOULD BE THE BEST BARGAIN IN THE AREA. THAT SAID, IT IS A FUN COURSE WITH A LOT OF CHARACTER. WE HAVE PLAYED PRIOR AND WILL PLAY AGAIN. THE PARKING LOT ATTENDANT WAS " JOHNNY ON THE SPOT ". NICE GUY , GREAT MANNERS!!!

The course is set up fairly for the weekend golfer.
Had a great time with my son on a very good golf course. Enjoyed it immensly! There is a lot of water but it is set up where you can play around it if you don't have the game to go over it. Greens and bunkers were in good shape.
