LINKS List: The Best Island Greens

Ponte Vedra Inn Golf Course Island Green

Ponte Vedra Inn & Club (Ocean), 9th hole
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

This hole features one of the first island greens ever built. Lacking today’s earthmoving machines, architect Herbert Strong used teams of mules to dredge lagoons and build the green. Pete Dye was familiar with the course and Ponte Vedra's 9th hole no doubt was on his mind as he was building TPC Sawgrass, just up the road.
