St. Augustine, Florida
As the Official golf courses of the World Golf Hall of Fame, King & Bear and Slammer & Squire at World Golf Village are award-winning championship courses designed to offer both enjoyment and challenge in a spectacular and unique resort setting.
Tee off from under the tower of the World Golf Hall of Fame at the Slammer & Squire. This 6,939-yard course was designed by architect Bobby Weed along with Hall of Fame Members, Sam Snead (the “Slammer”) and Gene Sarazen (the “Squire”). All three 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 pristine unspoiled wooded areas, wetlands and natural beauty of the region. The layout is wide open with several contoured greens. A few water hazards come into play, but the picturesque views of the Hall of Fame will definitely overshadow any challenges you may face.
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 that come together to form one masterpiece. 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.
