Sawgrass CC is everything you could ask for in a country club. It's beach club is gorgeous, tennis/fitness recently had a remodel, and the 27 holes are some of the best in the area! All service professionals are top notch and very pleasant. If you are looking for a private club, look no further. The membership is strong, active, and we'll networked. Course is always in great shape and currently going through a remodel to be even better!
Some of the reviews have sawgrass cc confused with the TPC at sawgrass. Tpc is open to the public the country club is private
This place has been soaked in money for so long that it barely remembers anything else. There's something easy about the comfort of old money. It doesn't need to be snarky and condescending like new money. It has a quiet, reserved sense of entitlement that is almost affable, if not genial. It can be a little off-putting to see a 16 year old driving a $120,000 BMW, but at least the pretensions aren't affectations.
If you can see past the absurd amounts of money, you will certainly be able to enjoy yourself. The beach is quieter here than elsewhere, the pool is well maintained, and the restaurants are exactly what you would expect.
I haven't played on the golf course, but I assume it is up to par ;-)
Played golf there and stayed after for dinner. They had a buffet that was fantastic! It was very inexpensive (under $20) with great variety. Prime rib, Salmon, Chicken, Pasta Bar (with chef), caesar salad, mixed greens salad,green beans, potatoes and lots of deserts.
Golf was great. Caddy was a little annoying (forecaddy). He wanted to read all the greens for us. Course was in great condition. Beautiful grounds and clubhouse. Went there previously for the Players tournament.
I would tell you to go for the beach, the pool, and that's about it. The food here has never impressed. Sure there are some jewels to be found on the menu, Cobb Salad... well that's about the only jewel I can think of. Skip the buffets, skip the dinners, skip just about everything here.
To be fair they try VERY hard. They are limited to what/when the membership wants and they dealing with a old cranky bunch. I hate to overuse the expression but this is God's waiting room. I think if they opened up the dining to the public and allowed some fresh blood in they might have the traffic to up their offerings. Until then I'll go for the beach, and get a drink... that's about it.
