Annual Golf Classic

After a two-year hiatus, we’re looking to tee it up at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club on the newly renovated Ocean Course or Lagoon Course in 2021! We’ve missed the electric energy that sweeps over this event and lights up the Inn & Club. No one leaves empty-handed and prizes are awarded for exceptional shot-making. Tournament includes a light breakfast, golf with cart, luncheon, fabulous prizes and player gifts.
