Northeast Florida is home to amazing food, entertainment, history, beaches, and of course golf. America’s oldest city, St. Augustine seems to be an appropriate place to house the history-rich World Golf Hall of Fame and the two championship courses King & Bear and Slammer & Squire. If you are an avid golfer you should have World Golf Village on your radar as a bucket list trip. The first coast golf package includes:
Opening in November 2000 the King & Bear is a one of kind co-design from two golf legends, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Set in World Golf Village amongst loblolly pines and bordered by lakes with large coquina rocks this track offers a unique golfing experience
Named after golf legends “Slammin’ Sam” Snead and Gene “The Squire” Sarazen, this course was designed by Bobby Weed who consulted with the two legends to create this par 72 masterpiece. Built around wooded wetlands and indigenous wildlife, this course’s beauty will take your breath away. From its old pine forest and deep white sand bunkers on the front nine, to its views of the World Golf Village towers on the back, Slammer & Squire is truly a tribute to the game of golf. With its five sets of tee boxes, the 6,939 yard course can be played from a variety of lengths, creating a challenging round for the advanced golfer but also a playable course for the novice. Completing the dynamic duo is the neighboring WGV Course, King & Bear. Play these two courses during your visit, you’re in for a great time.
