Where2Golf says: 

Ponte Vedra Inn & Club (Ocean course): Designed in 1928 by British architect Herbert Bertram Strong, the 6,574 yard, par-72 Ocean Course represents the Ponte Vedra area's first golf resort experience. It was later joined in 1961 by the resort's shorter Lagoon course.

Lacking modern earth moving equipment, Strong used 100 mules dragging slip pans to give the course its contours, dredge lagoons and build up a series of earth mounds that dot the fairways. With subsequent improvements by Robert Trent Jones Sr and then Bobby Weed, praises and accolades have been heaped on the Ocean Course from the very beginning to the present day.

The Ocean Course's ninety-nine strategically positioned sand bunkers enhance the beauty and increase the challenge of the golf experience. Designed to accommodate defensive pin positions, the elevated greens continually place a premium on well thought out and accurately executed approach shots.

The Ocean Course was selected as the venue for the 1939 Ryder Cup. However the onset of World War II led to the cancellation of the Ryder Cup until 1947, when the matches were moved to Portland, Oregon. The course has been used as a US Open qualifying course on several occasions.
