Newcomers of the Beaches

As a prospective member, you may attend two Monthly Luncheons to check us out.  Each luncheon is comprised of a social time and a short business meeting followed by a program or event. Our Monthly Luncheons are held at the Sawgrass Country Club at 11:00 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, September through June.  Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the address and a map showing the location.

Reservations and Costs

You must have a paid reservation to attend the luncheon.  We are not able to accommodate walk-ins on the day of the luncheon. Luncheons costs are payable online by credit card, debit card or PayPal account.  When making your reservation, you will select an entree as part of the reservation. There will be 3 entree selections and a gluten free alternative.  The ability to make a lunch reservation closes at midnight on the Thursday before the luncheon (1st Thursday of each month). Don't miss the deadline!

If you make a reservation and know before the deadline that you will not be able to attend the luncheon, contact the luncheon chairman and advise her of your change in plans. She will advise whether your payment may be applied to a future luncheon.

Location

The Sawgrass Country Club is located at 10034 Golf Club Dr., Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082.  It is located in the Country Club subdivision of Sawgrass which is situated between A1A and Ponte Vedra Boulevard (the road that runs along the beach).  There are two Sawgrass Country Club gates on A1A.  Which to use will depend on whether you are coming from the north or south on A1A.  See the map at the bottom of this page.

Coming from the north (from Butler Blvd., or Jacksonville, Atlantic or Neptune Beaches) on A1A: Heading south on A1A, enter the Sawgrass Country Club subdivision through the north gate by turning LEFT from A1A onto Country Club Blvd. Stop at the gate house and tell them you are attending the Newcomers luncheon.  The gate guard can provide a map should you need one.  Proceed on Country Club Blvd. Without turning, the name will change to Preston Trail E. Continue until you reach Sawgrass Drive E.  Turn Right onto Sawgrass Drive E.  Proceed and turn right onto Gulf Club Drive. You can park anywhere there is a spot.   

Coming from the south (from Nocatee) on A1A: Heading north on A1A, enter the Sawgrass Country Club subdivision through the south gate by turning RIGHT onto Sawgrass Drive W. Stop at the gate house and tell them you are attending the Newcomers luncheon.  The gate guard can provide a map at the gate should you need one.  Proceed straight on Sawgrass Drive W for 1.2 miles. Without making any turns, Sawgrass Drive W will become Sawgrass Drive S and then Sawgrass Drive E.  Look for Golf Club Drive on your left (the next street after you pass Birkdale Lane). Turn left onto Golf Club Drive and park anywhere there is a spot.   

After parking, enter the building and proceed to the end of the hallway.  Turn left and our meeting room is on the right.   If you made your reservation, a name tag will be ready for you at the door.  Let the hostess know this is your first luncheon and they will assist you with where to sit.  Back to Top

Seating

Depending on the program, we may have a table just for new members or you may be assigned a table number and will sit with both established and new members.  Check with the hostess at the name tag table if you have a question about where to sit.  We vary our seating arrangements between open and assigned seating by month.  September, December, February, April and June are open seating months, and you can choose where and with whom to sit. October, November, January, March, and May are assigned seating months, and you will be given a table number. This helps us mix and mingle to keep meeting new people! 

If you plan to attend the luncheon as a guest of a member, or if as a member you plan to bring a guest, the member needs to register themselves and the guest on the same same luncheon registration.  This is the only way we know you are coming together and can be sure to accommodate  you wanting  to be seated together.  Back to Top

New Member Introductions

At your first luncheon as a member, you may be asked to stand up and briefly introduce yourself. Let people know where you came from and what your interests are so people with similar interests or backgrounds will seek you out.  Enjoy meeting everyone; we all want to make new friends! Back to Top

Menu Cards

Inside your name tag will be a small card. This is a reminder of what you ordered for lunch and to advise the Sawgrass CC staff what to serve you.  Take the card out and put it by your dessert silverware so the wait staff can see it.   We always have multiple entrees to choose from when making your reservation, including a gluten free option.  Note:  You are not allowed to change your entrĂ©e the day of the lunch.  Sawgrass CC has prepared lunches based on our pre-order and your change will negatively impact someone else's order.

Dress

The country club dress code does not allow jeans to be worn in the club house.  Back to Top

Programs

In February, we celebrate the birthday of the club with a special party.  April is the month for our annual fashion show.  In June, we install our new officers and say farewell to our members who have been in the club for 5 years with a graduation ceremony.  The remainder of the months, the club vice president arranges a local speaker for the program.
