Ponte Vedra Inn & Club
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
I have always been intrigued by the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, having grown up in Jacksonville and driving by many times over the years, make that decades. My recent and first official visit did not disappoint, as its historic charms exceeded my expectations. There is a timeless quality to this seaside resort, featuring old-fashioned (but nicely updated) motel rooms that open right on to the beach. No long walk or bike ride needed to get to the beach, just take a few (like three or four!) steps out the back door and your toes are in the sand. And the golf is good and fun, with 36 holes offered on the Ocean and Lagoon courses. Word is that the Ocean will soon undergo a major renovation by Bobby Weed, so the golf should soon be even better.
