World Golf Village
World Golf Village overview
World Golf Village comprises two golf courses, each with their own separate clubhouse and amenities. Slammer & Squire is located adjacent to the World Golf Hall of Fame, just south of Jacksonville. The spacious golf shop features everything a golfer may need for their round, as well plenty of logoed gear and memorabilia. Outdoors, golfers can utilize the driving range with unlimited range balls as well as the putting and chipping greens. The Legends Restaurant & Grille is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat and a drink pre- or post-round and offers a wide selection of food and drinks with views of the surrounding area and golf course.
King & Bear is located about 15-minutes from World Golf Village and is home to the only course in the world that has been co-designed by both Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. The club features a large golf shop, driving range with unlimited range balls, as well as a putting and chipping green for visiting golfers to utilize. After the round, you can get a drink and a bite to eat at AJ’s Kitchen & Cocktails, a space described as “Southern Coastal with a Lowcountry charm.” In addition to the indoor dining area and bar, the outdoor patio features fire pits with views overlooking the 9th and 18th greens.
World Golf Village is home to two great courses designed by some of the game’s greatest players and designers. The Slammer & Squire is situated next to the World Golf Hall of Fame and was designed by Bobby Weed along with Sam Snead (the “Slammer”) and Gene Sarazen (the “Squire”). Meanwhile, 15 minutes away is the King & Bear by Arnold Palmer (“The King”) and Jack Nicklaus (the “Golden Bear”).
