The Oak Bridge Club (formerly known as Ponte Vedra Golf & Country Club at Sawgrass) has a short, tight layout that presents a formidable test to even skilled golfers. This challenging golf course features water on every hole, giving strong iron players an opportunity to work on their straight tee shots. There are also tree-lined fairways and slightly winding, undulating greens. The golf course puts a higher priority on proper shot placement and honed short game skills in order to do well rather than strength or distance. The Oak Bridge Club is known for its challenging and unique 13th hole. This par 4 is a 378-yard straightaway with a two-tiered green and a tricky water hazard.

Love to play Oak Bridge. Good par 70 course where most of the greens are in better shape with the exception of hole 10. All the greens are slower than you may want but was pleased to see more grass than normal. Tees need work but rather see the fairways, greens and aprons stay in better shape than spend a lot on redoing the tees. Recommed playing the course again if you have stayed away. It is worth the $25-30 fee for a good average shaped course where they need lots of players out there as it was dead on a Sunday morning. Facilities were upgraded recently hope they can keep up the good work.

Greens are in rough shape. Tee boxes need some attention. Hopefully new management will address these. Nice layout and potential is there. Played w a member and his daughter, who were wonderful people and a joy to play with. They helped with the layout and made the day fun. Post round we enjoyed the bar and apps. Amenities were very good.

Fairways are decent, rough is loaded with weeds, greens are pretty beat up, bunkers hadn’t been raked since Wednesday and didn’t have much sand in them to begin with. It’s basically a $15 muni they want $40 to play.

I've played this course with my son in the past and have been happy with it. Apparently they've recently implemented a rule that disallows children on the course. In the past my son has enjoyed riding on the cart alongside of me while I play. He doesn't go into the woods or the water and I demand that he is respectful to the course. I've brought him onto dozens of courses in the past and we don't hold up anyone's game. In fact, we've never had anyone even close to waiting on us. When we're approaching another group I use that time to teach him some pointers. That being said, I was very disappointed when I was rudely told that I couldn't take my son along with me; he was heartbroken. I even offered to pay for his round, as opposed to simply being a passenger. I used to enjoy coming to Oak Bridge but this will deter me from coming again, with or without my son.

Took my 3 year old son on a ride along while I golfed 18. This is a course I frequent often due to value and location. The greens leave some room for improvement but I love the scenery, layout, and it's typically not too crowded, although it was full this particular visit. Plenty of water and hazards to get into trouble with (not a good thing for my game), but I like the challenge. Will definitely be back.

This course is not in the best shape but it is in good enough shape to be well worth the $29 for a round. The only real complaint is the $8 for a bucket of about 30 practice balls. The driving range is a golf course's biggest money maker for the upkeep on it. Lowering that to $6 would get more range play. The same concept of lowering taxes, more people participate and even at a lower rate you get better revenue overall.
