Florida's First Coast of Golf

Florida's First Coast of GolfNortheast Florida is an exciting and enjoyable place to live...and play! We’re known as the “First Coast: because this is the first Florida area settled by Europeans, and the first area reached driving south.

We believe there is much more to that designated “First”. The NFL Jacksonville Jaguars, AA Baseball Jacksonville Suns, Women’s Professional Tennis – MPS Group  Championship, World Golf Hall of Fame  Induction Ceremony, PGA Tour’s THE PLAYERS Championship, PGA  Nationwide Tour’s Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open, Golf Channel Amateur Tour - National Championship – are all top-level spectator sports events which attract people and increase recognition of Northeast Florida.

Then add the broad range of participation sports and activities available here including: wide sandy beaches and firstclass ocean and inland fishing from Amelia to Palm Coast, boating, parks, museums and tour-caliber golf courses.  

Of all the activities available, golf has become a prime recreation for residents and visitors. The sheer number of courses, designed by the likes of Tom Fazio, Pete Dye, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Donald Ross, Arthur Hills, Gary Player and Mark McCumber have earned Northeast Florida a major standing in the sport.

No doubt the attention paid to Northeast Florida by these architectural luminaries was a factor in the decision to establish the PGA TOUR Headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach. With momentum gathering speed like a downhill putt, the TPC Sawgrass – THE PLAYERS Stadium Course was then built to host THE PLAYERS Championship. And now, world recognition of Northeast Florida has come with the World Golf Village and World Golf Hall of Fame located between Jacksonville and St. Augustine on I-95. From designated title “First Coast”, to the earned title “First Coast of Golf”, is a reality.
