Ponte Vedra Inn & Club (Lagoon course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1961

Ponte Vedra Inn & Club (Lagoon course): Ponte Vedra's second test of golf is the Lagoon course. At a modest 6,022 yards from the back tees, this par-70 layout was the product of two great golf course architects. First contributor was Robert Trent Jones Sr, who designed the front-nine holes in 1961. Second to weigh-in was Joe Lee, who laid out the back-nine in 1977.

In 2007, renowned architect Bobby Weed fully restored and enhanced the Jones/Lee layout, adding further character and challenge to the golf experience on the Lagoon course. Weed's restoration included new tees, fairways and greens, routing changes on several holes, new turf standards, improved irrigation and drainage, and an enhanced landscaping theme. The restoration gave the Lagoon course a stronger identity, while complementing the sterner test of the Ocean Course.

The Lagoon places a premium on accurate driving and well-judged approaches. Water is a dominant feature with a mosaic of lakes and lagoons threatening golfers on eleven holes. Tall pines, palms and ancient sprawling oaks keep the fairways narrow on many holes, as you journey towards typically small and fast greens.

Did you know?

Ponte Vedra Inn's 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 Ocean course has been used as a US Open qualifying course on several occasions.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
