The 2018 Annual DPHA Conference will be held at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL from October 10-13, 2018 (34 miles from the Jacksonville Airport). Recently renovated and brimming with amenities, the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa sets the stage for a visit you won't soon forget. Next door to the legendary TPC® Sawgrass golf course, they proudly offer their guests special privileges at the courses. Elsewhere at the resort, you can make a splash in one of their four pools, pamper yourself at the on-site spa or enjoy a meal at their outstanding restaurants. Catch their free shuttle to TPC® Sawgrass, or to the recently renovated private Cabana Beach Club.
