The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club announced Friday that its 18-hole golf course, the Ocean Course, will close Monday for an $8 million renovation.

The course is expected to open next fall.

The resort’s Lagoon Course will remain open during the renovation.

The project will restore the greens, fairways, tees, bunkers, irrigation, drainage, grassing, bridges, bulkheads and landscaping and improve the driving range and practice facilities.

The renovation is led by Bobby Weed, who led the course’s previous renovation in 1998. Weed is the president of Bobby Weed Golf Design. MacCurrach Golf Construction Inc. is the contractor for the project. 

The Ocean Course opened in 1928 and was designed by architect Herbert Strong. The course hosted the 1939 Ryder Cup. It was updated in 1940 and 1998.

The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club is owned by Gate.
