Because of its sidewalks, lush landscaping, lakes and golf course views many residents are seen walking, bicycling or on their golf carts and always with a friendly wave.
Sawgrass Country Club golfing
The Club features a 27-hole golf course designed by Ed Seay, consisting of the East nine, West nine and South nine, all of which have had the fairways, tees and bunkers recently renovated by Robert Walker, a protégé of Ed Seay, as part of the club’s master plan. Future work includes the greens, bridges, cart paths, drainage, bulkheads and irrigation system. These improvements showcase Sawgrass Country Club’s commitment to golf and being amongst the best courses in Northeast Florida. Featured in Golf Magazine, Golf Digest, and Golf Week Magazine, the Club used to play host to the Players Championship, which moved to TPC Sawgrass.
