Ponte Vedra, FL - Real estate agents often work out of their car and are also constantly meeting customers in locations near where they are showing homes. I am no exception.

I needed a nice place to visit with out of town customers before heading out to see homes in Ponte Vedra one recent weekend morning. Panera was crazy busy and the local Starbucks was just a little too cramped. Lo and behold, I found out about a little known secret: The Players Club at Sawgrass has a dynamite breakfast and is open to the public!

All I had to do was drive up to the TPC gate and introduce myself. The guard simply took my license plate information and waved us in. Next, we meandered the beautiful community until we got to the Country Club. Surrounded by palm trees and rolling golf hills, the club boasted gorgeous columns and staircases. Once inside, the historical golf art blended in well with the plush atmosphere. It was quite a place for golf lovers.

We were directed in to one of the several dining rooms. Being is was a glorious January morning, around 68 degrees, we opted to eat outside and enjoy the scenery. The view was spectacular, but the food was even better!

We enjoyed the freshly brewed Starbucks coffee. One of my companions loved his breakfast egg and bacon sandwich, but really loved my creamy grits. He said they were the best he’s ever eaten…coming from someone Southern born and bred, I believe him. They were delicious, as was my toasted bagel complete with cream cheese and three types of jam to choose from. (We were eating light, as there was quite a variety on the menu.)

We were dressed casually for this Saturday morning escapade. There is a dress code for the different dining halls. You can check out this private, yet open to the public, jewel at

And, if you’re looking for a home anywhere in Ponte Vedra, let me know and we can start out our day at the TPC Clubhouse!
