Marsh Landing – Ponte Vedra Beach
Marsh Landing is a country club community located in Northwest Ponte Vedra Beach between J. Turner Butler Boulevard and Solana Road to the west of A1A. Marsh Landing is located a few miles north from Sawgrass Players Club, in the middle of west Ponte Vedra. Marsh Landing, a gated and monitored community has continued to develop over the course of 30 years in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Boating and Marsh Landing
Much like the Sawgrass Players Club, Marsh Landing includes various sub-communities. The most prestigious of these is the community at Harbour Island. Homes in this boating neighborhood include private boat slips at the Marsh Landing docks. This impressive community can be seen easily from the air and the water and forms a literal harbor filled with grand yachts and lined by incredible estates.
Preservation of natural marsh habitats
Marsh Landing is something of a small town all of its own. Nestled in 1700 acres, the original founders of the community had the foresight to preserve as much of the natural beauty of the marshland as possible. This means that despite the large number of homes in the community (more than 1,000 currently), there are many expanses of remarkable Florida habitat that remain untouched for Marsh Landing homeowners to enjoy with their families. Whether you stroll the oak-lined streets of the neighborhood or jog along the wooden boardwalks installed to allow residents to enjoy the marsh, you will soon understand why preserving these habitats has been such an important part of growth of Marsh Landing.
A commitment to constant improvement
The community’s common areas have undergone several improvements in the past 5 years with more infrastructure and architectural improvements on the way. Recently, new lighting was installed along the parkway, new pavers laid at the north entrance and refurbishments and improvements were made to the drainage and pump systems. The community’s commitment to improving and updating the neighborhood makes a home in Marsh Landing a worthy long-term investment.
Marsh Landing neighborhood amenities
Within the community there are several impressive amenities aside from the Marsh Landing Country Club. The community includes two neighborhood parks, sports fields and nature paths. The two-acre Fletcher Park features a playground, soccer field, volleyball court, restroom facilities, pavilion and running track. The smaller community Osprey park offers a playground and basketball court.
Marsh Landing Country Club
Marsh Landing Country Club is a separate entity from the community and membership at the club is optional for residents. Visit the Club, however, and you’ll understand why so many Marsh Landing homeowners are members at the Club. The Country Club opened in 1986 and is home to a par-72 golf course, tennis courts, golf and tennis pro shops, a fitness center and swimming pool. Members also enjoy fine dining and year-round events for adults and children at the country club.
