Sawgrass Country Club is a gated residential community in unspoilt NE Florida adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean some 20 miles from downtown Jacksonville. Our condo is open plan, light and spacious and overlooks the 1st fairway of the East 9 at Sawgrass and is furnished to a high standard in typical Floridian style. E-mail us to access further more detailed information on our condo and on the available facilities at the Country Club.
Facilities at Sawgrass: Temporary membership of the country club provides access to its extensive and luxurious amenities, which include 27 championship holes of golf, several swimming pools (one heated), 12 tennis courts and a fitness centre, which runs daily tutored sessions. The Atlantic Ocean is 5 minutes walk from the condo and is accessed through the club’s private Beach Club, which also has 2 swimming pools, formal and informal dining facilities and overlooks several miles of private and mostly deserted, unspoiled beach. The facilities make for an active sporting or quite restful family holiday, or a mixture of both!
How to get to Sawgrass: Jacksonville has its own airport and is an easy and uncomplicated 45mins drive from our Sawgrass condo. Most American carriers use this airport and many have direct UK / European flights with connections from their major US hubs to Jacksonville.
Others may find charter flights to Sanford airport (North of Orlando and our usual choice) to be a better option. Many UK & European tour operators fly direct to Sanford which is a small busy charter airport which is user friendly on arrival but has poorer departure facilities. Driving time from Sanford 2hrs and Orlando international 2.75hrs.
We will happily e-mail you a map(s) of the locality at your request (please, do not hesitate to contact us for more details).
Although we are all proudly Scottish we live and work in the Lake District in the North West of England but spend as much vacation time as possible in Sawgrass often with a growing number of our ever growing family. Each visit is a welcome respite from the rigours of jobs in the National Health Service in the UK.
Mike & Catriona Walker purchased this condo in 1997
We fell in love with Sawgrass in the early 90's becoming aware of the area through work and association with the Mayo Clinic. Indeed we were married on the beach in Sawgrass and held our wedding party in the old Clubhouse on the beach. We created quite a stir as kilts and bagpipes were the order of the day!
You will appreciate why Sawgrass is so dear to our hearts!
Finding "our place" in Sawgrass was not easy. We looked at a time when there was a number of different condo of different sizes and location. We plumped for our Rough Creek condo as it had recently been remodelled and the whole condo was light, bright and airy and looked onto a small lagoon behind whch the sun disappears behind as it sets - just so beautiful and relaxing. As importantly you can walk to the beach, the beach club and pool, tennis courts, fitness centre and several pools as well as the golf club within a few minutes - just an deal location to access all the Sawgrass facilities.
We stayed for most of July 2016. Perfect location for us. The Sawgrass location and Ponte Vedra is close enough to Jacjsonville, but also far enough away. Condo is well equipped and very comfortable. Easily sleeps 4 (1 master on second floor and 2nd bedroom with 2 beds on first). Small loft off master worked well for our 5 year old granddaughter when she stayed with us. Plenty of plates, glasses, towels, etc. Even a couple of beach chairs, books and games in the condo. All the comforts of home!
Can walk to the beach, pools and fitness center (if carrying beach chairs probably will want to drive). When we come back we'll probably rent a golf cart for the month. Seems to be a popular mode of transportation within Sawgrass.
Only complaint is that the cost for the temporary Sawgrass membership provided on the listing is way off. Strongly recommend at least the Social Membership. If you want to play tennis more than a few times, should add the tennis membership option as well. Closer to $1,000 for the month. And if you want golf, which we did not, that adds even more cost.
Sad to go home but already looking forward to our next visit.
Sawgrass (home of the Tournement Players Golf Championship) is on the Atlantic coast 30 mins from downtown Jacksonville and 40 mins from the International airport. Visit Sawgrass country club web site for further info.
Golf: Sawgrass, home of the Tournament Players Club (TPC), is a golfer's paradise. There are over 60 public, resort and private courses in the Jacksonville area. Play on the Country Club's own private courses (site of the original Players Championship) – there are 27 challenging championship holes that will push the best. If this does not challenge then access can be obtained to the TPC's own stadium and valley courses – try the famous island hole!
