The Marsh Landing Country Club has changed hands and, in a sense, the property has come full circle.
Concert Golf Partners of Lake Mary has made Marsh Landing its 28th private club acquisition with its purchase of the gated community of Ponte Vedra Beach, a private club, built in 1985 and designed by the late Ed Seay by Palmer Course Design.
