Hammock Beach Resort - We are a AAA Four Diamond property just south of St. Augustine and sits directly on two miles of Atlantic Ocean’s gorgeous beaches. There is something for everyone with a Water Complex, two award winning golf courses, a nine hole putting green, six restaurants and eight tennis courts.
Whether it's a first trip to the beautiful beaches or a relaxing spa weekend with the girls take a look at what makes Hammock Beach Resort so special. Hammock Beach Resort is committed to delivering a first-class experience. Truly a "once in a lifetime" experience, the award winning resort provides the perfect location for the ultimate golf trip. Our two immaculate golf courses have been host to PGA Tour events, and tout some of the highest rankings in the state by Golf Magazine, Golf Week and Golf Digest. Designed by legends of the game, each course offers a distinctive style of play surrounded by spectacular views of the natural landscape. Dock your boat at one of our slips to enjoy private club amenities or reserve charter services such as sport fishing boats, kayaks and more. The kids will look forward to their water park adventure, where they can zip down the water flume or float the lazy river current at our 91,000 square-foot water pavilion. You will cherish your time-honored romantic dinner at one of our oceanfront resort restaurants where the seafood is always fresh off the boat. Or your well-deserved visit to the luxurious spa, where we use only the finest local inspired products. And of course, there's always the beach. What better place to have that special barbecue with your closest friends and family? Situated throughout Hammock Beach Resort, each of the resort restaurants and bars is designed to complement its surroundings, from the casual (bathing suit friendly) poolside cafe serving Island inspired fare to the warmth of a homemade Italian meal at Delfinos - a perfect stop for the whole family.
Palm Coast Tennis Center will be used as a 2nd location for Friday and Saturday matches.

Women's, Men's, and Mixed Doubles. (Since we are not actually running the tournament by NTRP levels, all levels are allowed.)
A maximum of 64 teams will be allowed in each of the draws, Men's, Women's, and Mixed. Could possibly take more teams in one or two draws.
How Double Teams Can Be Formed
One of the best part of Racquet War's waterfall format is the ability for players to partner up with anyone at any level. For example, if you have a NTRP USTA 3.5 rating and want to play with a good friend of your who has a NTRP USTA 4.5 rating you can do so. The format (described below) of the tournament ends up putting you and your partner in the correct bracket for your level. So while we do collect your NTRP rating, it doesn't matter whatsoever in who your partner is.
There will be a limited number of registrations available with a maximum 64 double teams in each of the three draws, Women's, Men's, and Mixed Doubles. If for some reason we do go higher than the 64 teams, we will take the highest combined ranking of all the teams over 64 and those teams will receive byes from the waterfall draws. All other 64 teams will start out in a waterfall bracket (see example of a waterfall bracket on the Rules and Regulations page found below). In the waterfall bracket, all teams will play two 8 game no ad pro sets to determine each doubles team competitive levels. After the two rounds of 8 game pro sets each team will play a minimum of two regular scoring matches with a tiebreaker used as a 3rd set if needed. For all teams receiving byes from the waterfall bracket, they will be guaranteed a minimum of three regular scoring matches. With this unique format, players do not have to worry about NTRP rating whatsoever and can partner up with whoever they wish, and the double teams end up playing against other double teams of similar skill in their final bracket. Players will only have the option of playing in one draw, Men's Women's or Mixed Doubles as that in itself will be a ton of tennis for the weekend.
