The World Golf Village located in between St Augustine and Jacksonville, Florida, is home to two legendary golf courses; the Slammer & Squire and the King & Bear. As the official courses of the World Golf Hall of Fame, it is fitting that these courses were designed by Hall of Famers Sam Snead, Gener Sarazen, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus, respectively. Players have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of legends, with both courses having hosted Champions Tour events and numerous other nationally televised events. Tournament-ready conditions throughout the year provide players with a truly memorable experience.
King & Bear, named for its co-designers, World Golf Hall of Fame members Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, is the first-and-only course design collaboration between two of golf's most respected and well-known ambassadors. Palmer and Nicklaus set out to create the 7,279-yard course as an eminently playable and picturesque course with memorable par-5's amid lakes, loblolly pines and 200-year-old live oaks.
Hall of Fame members Sam (The Slammer) Snead and Gene (The Squire) served as consultants to course architect Bobby Weed for Slammer & Squire. The 6,939-yard resort course offers views of the World Golf Hall of Fame from several holes and is distinguished by memorable par-3's, preserved woodlands, wetlands and natural beauty
