In 1940, Tommy Sabin, a New York banker and frequent Ponte Vedra Inn & Club guest, purchased 600 feet of oceanfront property from the Inn’s parent company, Ponte Vedra Corporation. On this prime real estate, located 1.5 miles south of the Inn, Sabin built an independent seasonal hotel, The Innlet, which offered economical rates, 32 small but attractive guest rooms and an overall pleasing environment. Four years later, the hotel was sold to Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and began operating under Inn management. With its pleasant, casual atmosphere, The Innlet became a gathering place for the younger crowd. In 1947, 30 apartments are added. While ownership changed hands several times over the next two decades, The Innlet continued to be managed by Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, with guests enjoying access to the amenities of both hotels.
In 1969, hotel operations ceased when The Innlet was purchased by Land Corporation of America. In 1989, The Lodge & Bath Club, a luxurious, 66-room oceanfront hotel, opened. In 1997, Ponte Vedra Corporation purchased this property and changed its name to The Lodge & Club. As in previous decades, operations at the hotel were managed by Ponte Vedra Inn & Club with guests enjoying access to the amenities of both establishments. In recognition of The Lodge & Club’s superior quality, the property received both the coveted AAA Four-Diamond Award and Mobil Four-Star Award in 2000.
In 2000, the Lodge began an extended phase of renovation and enhancement to add to its overall appeal that continues to present day. All rooms and suites, the lobby, indoor and outdoor dining spaces, banquet and meeting space, poolscapes and the fitness area were renovated and upgraded. A new portico entrance, children’s playground, oceanfront lawn and fire pit were added. The State of Florida recognized the Lodge with the prestigious Palm Award for voluntarily adopting a variety of green practices to reduce waste and conserve natural resources while the room renovations were recognized by the Florida Builder’s Association with its Award for Design Excellence.
Home of THE PLAYERS Championship, birthplace of the TPC (Tournament Players Club) Network, and backdrop to the PGA TOUR headquarters, the TPC Sawgrass golf course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., is perhaps the world’s most famous golf course. THE PLAYERS Stadium Course sports one of the most recognizable and challenging holes on the PGA TOUR. The notorious par-3, 17th hole, features an island green that makes or breaks many a PGA TOUR pro’s round.
THE PLAYERS Stadium was built to challenge the pros like no other golf course had done before, while providing an unprecedented experience for spectators at the same time.
Golf enthusiasts will find not one, but two PGA TOUR championship courses at the club, both designed by world-renowned architect Pete Dye. THE PLAYERS Stadium and Dye’s Valley Course offer two, perfectly balanced game experiences. The two golf courses winds through North Florida’s naturally compelling landscape.
TPC Sawgrass is not only one of the top Florida golf resorts, but it is recognized nationally by multiple golf publications as a destination. THE PLAYERS Stadium Course is ranked the No. 2 golf course in Florida by Golf Digest magazine and it ranks consistently among the Golf Digest’s top 50 golf courses in the country. (No. 41 in 2011). Golfweek honored THE PLAYERS Stadium Course as the top courses you can play in Florida and ranked it ninth among the Best Resort Courses in 2011.
Dye’s Valley, host of the Web.com Tour Championship since 2013, is commonly referred to as the “Valley Course” and is just under 6,900 yards. The golf course previously served as the home for the Senior Players Championship from 1988-1990. Prior to hosting the inaugural Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open (Web.com Tour event) in 2010, the Valley Course underwent some renovations during the winter of 2009-10 to improve drainage. Dye’s Valley was ranked No. 24 in Golfweek’s 2011 rankings of Best Courses You Can Play in Florida.
