Enjoy fun in the sun with Sigma Kappa!

With a variety of activities, including business meetings and the election of the 2018-2020 National Council, there are plenty of opportunities to connect with sisters, relax in the sun, or explore Northeast Florida’s beaches and sights.

Ponte Vedra Beach is located off the east coast of Florida, approximately 35 miles away from the Jacksonville International Airport and Saint Augustine, America’s oldest city. In addition to a newly-renovated meeting and guest room area, the Sawgrass Marriott is also home to the award-winning TPC Sawgrass golf course, home to The Players Championship each May.

Easy access via hotel shuttle takes guests to either the golf course or the beach via the Cabana Beach Club. At the resort proper, there are two pools to relax or meet up with family or Sigma Kappa sisters.
