Old Ponte Vedra Beach

Desirable golf course community with upscale amenities.


Welcome to Old Ponte Vedra Beach

Old Ponte Vedra Beach is a highly desirable golf course community located within walking distance of the beach and several private beach clubs. Stretching for three blocks between State Route A1A and the Atlantic Ocean, this community features luxury homes on large lots with mesmerizing golf course and lagoon views.

Old Ponte Vedra Beach started experiencing significant growth in 1914 when it became a prominent mining town. Nicknamed Mineral City, a plethora of titanium, rutile, and zircon was found in the area and used to make steel during World War I. After the war, local developers decided to showcase the area’s natural beauty and began crafting a beach and resort community in the 1920s and ‘30s. The community has well-maintained ranch homes dating back to this period. 

Growth accelerated even more in the 1960s and 1970s. Now single-family homes in Old Ponte Vedra Beach feature a wide range of architectural styles representing different periods in the community’s development. Recent years have seen many of the community’s older homes replaced with stunning contemporary properties.

The Ocean Course has been a huge draw for golfers since the resort opened in 1928 with major renovations by Robert Trent Jones in 1947 and Bobby Weed in 1998 and 2020. The Lagoon Course was created by two of the world’s most celebrated golf course architects.
