Ace in the Hole-- Ponte Vedra Beach

The days are growing shorter, evenings much more crisp, and mornings- they're downright chilly. Orders of pumpkin-spiced lattes resonate throughout local cafes and pumpkin pancakes fly off the griddle at everyone's favorite morning bistro, yes, autumn has descended upon us...

With fall foliage reaching its peak, I am going to suggest we partake in beautiful vistas, and brilliant colors... only with a warm coastal breeze. For the thrill of a lifetime this month, be sure to take in a fun-filled family outing to Ponte Vedra Beach, FLA.

People from all walks of life descend on this seaside community located just outside Jacksonville and home to TPC Sawgrass, one of the most well-known golf courses in the world. This stylish resort village of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida offers unsurpassed spa facilities, unparalleled golf opportunities as well as access to an unfettered beachfront.

Visiting this exclusive coastal community will be money well spent, and after nailing your tee shot on the renowned 17th island green, you will be able to scratch one off the bucket list.

Arrive In Style

Anytime you decide on a family outing to the stylish Jacksonville suburb of Ponte Vedra Beach, it's a special occasion. After all, how often are you going to have the opportunity to vacation at TPC Sawgrass, one of America's premier golf destinations... So, you may as well arrive in style.

Nothing compares to the ease and convenience of a private, non-stop chauffeured service to your resort destination. There is no better option than East Coast Transportation, North Florida's most trustworthy and inexpensive limousine service.

Standing at 17

Golfers of all skill levels flock to The Players Club Stadium Course at Sawgrass, if only to experience the formidable and infamous 17th Island Green. Granted, there are many popular catch phrases when referring to the game of golf...'A good excuse to curse...' 'A perfectly fine walk spoiled...' Well that's all fine and dandy, pretty much child's play until you march up to the 17th tee.

A flood of history will wash over you... Images of all the professional golfers that have gone before you and faced this formidable foe will flash through your mind. A lump in your throat will appear, as you try to swallow... And even though Florida's daytime humidity has lost its bite, regardless, you will begin to sweat as you place your ball onto the tee.

If you are one of the fortunate ones, like myself, to plant your first shot onto the island green... your demeanor on the outside may appear calm, cool and even collected.. but on the inside you will be jumping for joy like a youngster.
