Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa , located near Jacksonville, Fla., has completely renovated 55,000 square feet of indoor meeting space.

The new design is inspired by the resort's Ponte Vedra Beach location. Mineral tones of the ocean layered with the whites of sand dunes create the color palette for the refreshed ballrooms, breakout rooms and pre-function areas.

"Our new space will provide groups with a modern ambiance for all of their functions," said Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa General Manager Todd Hickey. "The space now really complements our great location, world-class golf, beautiful beaches and sunshine to make us a great destination for meetings and groups."

Guests can also enjoy upgrades to the resort's Cabana Beach Club - a private beachfront club open to resort guests and members - including new and upgraded dining venues.
