St. Augustine, Fl – (Sept. 21, 2021) – Summer winds down and Florida’s sporting fun begins in the Fall, the ideal time to visit Florida’s Historic Coast – a time when it is less crowded, and things have cooled down from the heat of the summer. Whether it’s to participate in or observe competitive sporting events, there are endless opportunities for outdoors sports here this Fall.
Ponte Vedra Beach is well known as a golf mecca and includes the headquarters for the PGA Tour and The PLAYERS® Stadium Course with its famous #17 Island Hole at TPC Sawgrass. And the World Golf Hall of Fame is located in St. Augustine. There are more than a dozen championship courses to play and numerous golf clinics to attend on Florida’s Historic Coast, including the The PXG Women’s Profession Match Play Championship taking place October 25 - November 4, 2021.
But it is not all about golf. We love pickleball too. St. Johns County Parks and Recreation maintains courts at Ron Parker Park at St. Augustine Beach and Treaty Park in St. Augustine that are ideal for pickleball challenges. Treaty Park plays host to the Florida Georgia Pickleball Classic in late October.
Fall is also a great time of year to get out and enjoy all the hiking, paddle boarding, and fishing. It is also the time of year that brings the perfect wave breaks for great surfing all along the beaches of this special part of Florida. Surfing has always been a favorite pastime on the beaches surrounding St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra with numerous popular spots like Vilano Beach, at St. Johns County Ocean Pier, Blowhole, and Matanzas Inlet where surfers are likely to catch the best waves. There is a whole culture in this coastal community that can be explored at the newly opened interactive museum which interprets local history stories through images, surf films, artifacts and more. And surf lessons are available through PIT Surf Shop at St. Augustine Beach.
