The Oak Bridge Club (formerly known as Ponte Vedra Golf & Country Club at Sawgrass) in the heart of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., sits adjacent to the famed Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. The 6,413-yard, par-70 Arnold Palmer design features water on every hole, tree-lined fairways and undulating greens. Oak Bridge favors accuracy and strategy over power and distance. New owners have upgraded the clubhouse and introduced a new restaurant, The 3 Palms Grille. A tennis center is home to 10 Har-Tru clay courts.

Horrible condition

The greens in particular were in horrible condition. The rest of the course wasn’t far behind despite the potentially great course it could be. Do not be fooled by the name Sawgrass as it does not reflect the more famous course over the road.

Still a long way to go

It had been several years since I've played Oak Bridge, but I was encouraged by the recent positive reviews to give the place another try. The staff was friendly, and the updated club house was nice, but that's about the end of the positives. The tee boxes were all torn up and hard to find footing on, the fairways and rough weren't much better, and the greens were a bumpy mess. Also, with no hole overviews to work off of, many of us ended up in water hazards we simply didn't know were there. It's hard to believe a course in this condition is inside the gates at TPC.

Nice but.....

The price was right. The pace of play was right. The layout was right. Conditions were questionable. As I understand it, things are improving. Tee boxes were rough. Greens were rough but apparently are improving. I liked the whole experience very much. If the course conditions continue to improve, they’ll get much better reviews. I will, however, definitely go back, hoping things continue to improve.

The layout is tight. Target golf for sure. Don’t let the par 70 fool you. You need to be on top of your game to place some shots. As I said, the layout is good, very challenging. Lots of fun to try and get your ball in the right places. And the greens, while in rough shape ( but poss improving ) are not the typical Florida-flat. They’ve got some great undulations which make them interesting. Bunkers were pretty good, somewhat fluffy. Lots of crabgrass everywhere, by again, supposedly improving.

I paid $32 on Golf Now and, for now, worth it.

It’s a recommendation from me.

Much improved - a legit option again

I've been critical of Oakbridge in the past and conditions had slipped to the point we hadn't played there in a month or so - but couldn't resist a $12 hot deal including a cart ! and was rewarded with better conditions.
Greens are still rough and probably the weakest aspect but there's new grass coming in and I expect they will improve. Traps were actually raked and fluffy. Tee's and fairways were pretty nice so I'm rating Oakbridge a solid 4 factoring in the speed and price.
Jax Beach greens are far superior but fairways comparable.
Today I played 18 in a shade under 2 1/2 hours vs 4 hrs at Jax Beach
Paid $12 to ride for 18 while Jax Beach is now $18 ! to Walk 9
I'll be back

Nice little course. Friendly staff. Nice clubhouse. Pace of play was awesome. Played with my son as a twosome and had a lot of fun. Tee boxes a little rough but overall a great place to play. I'm about a 15 handicap

As good as you can get for $30

I am as critical of other golf courses as one can be, having worked at many exclusive places over the years. So other than a few dead spots on shady tee boxes and greens, it was the most enjoyable stress-free round I’ve had in recent memory. From the pro shop staff and bag drop to the cart girl and ranger, they were genuinely nice folks. It was an awesome time. Never had to wait on groups or let others play through, which is great for a Friday morning tee time.

I will be playing again there very soon.

Poor staff choices

Played this course a few years back and loved the layout and staff. Today however the staff was unwilling to help in a time of need. Had a sibling that was playing the front nine and wanted to play the back nine so I could join. The only issue was that I needed a tee time past 4 for the back to join him but the lady at the front desk said that "Today we can't help you." It was my brothers birthday and I was really hoping the staff would accommodate being that I already had someone on the course. In summary, I am regretful to say that I will not return or recommend this course going forward.

As a UK visitor this course has many water hazards, multiple bunkers (condition could be improved) but also retains a country atmosphere.
It is fund to play.

Good Deal for the course.

If you get a hot deal it is definitely worth the money. I have played this course 5 times in a month. Great to work on your swing and practice/play. Greens were there best I have seen them in a decade this passed fall. Then they dressed with sand. I will return. Several people slowed the front, so I was able to play the back. IMO the back is almost a different course. Better.
