This "awesome course" called The Golf Club at Fleming Island was designed by the renowned, and Ponte Vedra Beach resident, Bobby Weed. Weed's championship accentuates Florida's most beautiful natural features. The front and back nines are as different in design as in surroundings. The front is cut out of the east side of the plantation where open fairways lined with pines and ponds, and huge elevated greens let you grip and rip it! As you play west to the back nine, the scenery changes to swamp and thick woodlands, which plays for a tighter, shorter, shot-maker par-35. This meticulously maintained course plays tough, but remains fair with five sets of tees, and is aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Check website for rate and timing details.
