Plantation unveils new amenities park


On Jan. 19, The Plantation at Ponte Vedra Beach unveiled its new amenities park, Plantation Commons. The park features a Croquet Lawn, Playground, Pavilion and open space.

Approximately 100 members of The Plantation attended a special ribbon cutting celebration. Many participated in a Croquet round robin instructional format to learn how to play the sport. “We’re excited to introduce a new sport to The Plantation. Croquet is one of the fastest growing sports in the private club industry and we’re now one of the few clubs in Northeast Florida to offer a croquet court” says Rob Schlingmann, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of The Plantation.

Younger members explored the new custom designed playground structure and enjoyed the multi-purpose field. One five year old was overheard declaring it, “The best playground she’d even been on in her entire life.”

The Plantation Commons is the first of three initiatives to be completed at The Plantation. In addition The Plantation is currently updating its Beach Club and undergoing a $6 million golf course revitalization in which the greens, tees and bunkers will be rebuilt, the drainage system will be upgraded and a new irrigation system will be installed. The golf course will reopen in October of 2016.
