The World Golf Village’s King & Bear and Slammer & Squire courses feature designed collaborations by four World Golf Hall of Fame Members; Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, and Gene Sarazen.
King & Bear
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.View Packages | View Website | Book Tee Times
Slammer & Squire
Tee off from under the tower of the World Golf Hall of Fame. This course was designed by architect Bobby Weed along with Hall of Fame Members, Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen. These men shared a desire to build a course that rewards good shot making while preserving the area’s natural beauty. What developed is a well groomed course that showcases the unspoiled wooded areas, wetlands and natural beauty. The layout is open with several contoured greens. A few water hazards come into play, but the views of the Hall of Fame will overshadow any challenges you may face.View Packages | View Website | Book Tee Times
