About Ponte Vedra

Many here have searched the entire East Coast and will now tell you that the gem of the Luxury Communities on the coast is Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. With an extraordinary set of housing, lifestyle and amenity choices, you can select which Community fits you best and still enjoy the cultural, sports and travel choices that only million-person city can offer. Jacksonville lies 15 miles to the west, easily accessed from Ponte Vedra. Only 20 miles to the south, you can enjoy the rich cultural heritage and bubbling energy of oldest city in the United States-St. Augustine. Some Communities along the coast think of themselves as “Elegantly Shabby”. In contrast, Ponte Vedra is “Casually Elegant”.

Ponte Vedra offers access to the wonderful St. Johns County Public School System. With direct air service from 27 major airports ranging from Houston to Las Vegas, and St. Louis to Charlotte, you can travel easily for business, pleasure or family.

The Ponte Vedra Inn and Club was born in 1928 with housing development beginning in the 1930’s. For several decades Ponte Vedra Beach just meant the homes along the oceanfront and inland centered on this increasingly well-known resort and private club. We have identified the luxury residential area along the ocean and surrounding the Club as “Old” Ponte Vedra. It is the only one of the six communities on this homepage which is not “gated” but it is highly desirable.

Jimmy Stockton Jr. pioneered a new concept of development in the 1970’s with Sawgrass Country Club. This wonderful community offers multiple housing types with an extensive set of amenities including possibly the finest Beach Club in the area. This development concept has spread throughout Ponte Vedra and the nation since that time.

“Ponte Vedra” expanded to the west in the 1980’s and 1990’s with the development of communities west of State Road A1A including The Plantation, Sawgrass Players Club, Marsh Landing and Plantation Oaks. Along with this development, many private clubs evolved, most within Communities but some are stand-alone.


The private Clubs include-from the oldest and most extensive: Ponte Vedra Inn &Club (profiled under the “Old Ponte Vedra Community), Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club (Beach, Oceanfront Dining, Fitness, Spa, Pool), Cabana Club (Beach Club, Oceanfront Dining, Fitness, Pool), Sawgrass Country Club (Full Suite of All amenities), Marsh Landing (Golf, Tennis, Fitness, Pool), TPC (Golf), Ponte Vedra Golf & Tennis (Golf, Tennis, Fitness, Pool) and The Plantation which is the only “Equity Club” and the HOA owns the Club.
