Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra Beach Wins Prestigious Award

By: John Schwarb


Everyone knows that TPC Sawgrass is among the very best places to play golf in Florida, with iconic holes known the world over.

Did you know that the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa is equally acclaimed?

The Ponte Vedra Beach resort was recently named U.S. Golf Resort of the year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, the global trade organization for the golf tourism industry.

David Rees, president of Florida’s First Coast of Golf, accepted the award on behalf of Sawgrass Marriott at a ceremony in Portugal.

If your main destination for a Northeast Florida golf getaway is the two courses at TPC Sawgrass, the Sawgrass Marriott is the best home base—a number of early tee times are reserved most days solely for resort guests. The golf-savvy staff at the resort can help book those tee times plus others at Sawgrass Country Club, Marsh Landing, Ponte Vedra Golf and Country Club, Palencia Country Club and the two courses at World Golf Village.

“Sawgrass is a one-of-a-kind destination for those with a passion for the game,” general manager Tom Manno said. “We are especially lucky to be able to provide our guests with the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of past champions including K.J. Choi and Tiger Woods.”

The Sawgrass Marriott is the host hotel for THE PLAYERS Championship every May, and a number of PGA Tour pros stay in the resort’s 506 plush rooms, 24 suites and 80 villa suites. If it’s good enough for the pros, you can be sure the Sawgrass Marriott is perfect for your golf vacation.
