The Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is a state of the art, 15,000 seat entertainment venue that hosts the Jacksonville Sharks football team, Jacksonville Dolphins basketball team, and many concerts, WWE events, and more in the downtown area.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are the only "big four" professional sports team to call Jacksonville home. This football team plays their games at the EverBank Field in downtown Jacksonville.

The Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass is the golf course built in 1980 specifically to host the Players Championship in the Ponte Vedra Beach suburb of Jacksonville. Its signature feature is the 17th hole, known as the "Island Green', which is the green on its own peninsula surrounded entirely by water. Not surprisingly, this has become notorious in its difficulty, and much of the course had been called too difficult by professional players until parts of it were redesigned to be more playable.

The Jacksonville Suns are the city's minor league baseball team, affiliated with the MLB team the Miami Marlins. The Suns have been associated with Double-A baseball longer than any other and are the Southern League's longest playing team as well.

The Jacksonville Sharks are an Arena Football League (AFL) team that plays at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

The Jacksonville Axemen is one of the most successful rugby teams in the country since its founding in 2006. The team plays for the American National Rugby League (AMNRL) and has included notable former professional leaguers such as USA Tomahawk Spinner Howland and European Super League player Sean Rutgerson. The Axemen have hosted several popular international events as well, including one against the Australian professional team the South Sydney Rabbitohs, owned by actor Russell Crowe, in an event called "Australia Day Challenge" in 2008.

The Jacksonville Giants are a minor league basketball team and 2011-2012 American Basketball Association (ABA) champions. Most of the their home games are played at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena downtown.

The Jacksonville area boasts some of Northeast Florida's best golf courses and is a top contender for the title of "Florida's Golf Capital". There are countless courses along miles of beautiful coastline and outstanding year-round weather for maximum enjoyment.
