Slammer & Squire

This course, located inside the World Golf Village, just two miles from the King & Bear, was designed by architect Bobby Weed, along with Golf Hall of Fame members Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen. They wanted a course that rewards good shot making, while preserving the area’s natural beauty. What came is a spectacular course that showcases the unspoiled wooded areas, wetlands, and natural beauty of north Florida. Contoured greens offer a challenge to the putter. Water hazards abound, but the views of the Golf Hall of Fame will overshadow any challenges you may face. Visit the World Golf Village website for more information.
