king-n-bear

Posted by & filed under .

The King & Bear is the only golf course in the world that has been co-designed by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. This course off­ers a mixture of two di­fferent design styles. The front nine is an open, links-style layout that gives a nod to the heritage of the historic city of St. Augustine, Florida. The back nine is more traditional Florida golf fringed with loblolly pines, 200-year-old oak trees, indigenous coquina rock, and numerous water features. With 7,279 yards, it’s a “driver’s” course, which should come as no surprise, as both Palmer and Nicklaus wielded awesome power games in their primes.
