About The World Golf Village Wedding Venue

2 World Golf Place, St. Augustine, FL 32092

While you certainly don’t have to be a golf enthusiast to appreciate the beauty of the World Golf Village Resort as a venue, it certainly doesn’t hurt! Its location between Jacksonville and St. Augustine makes it convenient for plenty of attractions and travelers flying through Jacksonville International Airport. Golfers will love its rich history and legacy of Hall of Famers, while everyone will enjoy the beautiful Renaissance Marriott Resort and all of its onsite amenities.

World Golf Village is home to two beautiful courses: The Slammer & Squire and The King & Bear. The Slammer & Squire was designed by Hall of Fame Members Sam Snead (the “Slammer”) and Gene Sarazen (the “Squire”), as well as architect Bobby Weed. The King & Bear is named for its co-designers, golf legends Arnold Palmer (the “King”) and Jack Nicklaus (the “Golden Bear.”) Both courses are absolutely beautiful and include gorgeous terrain, water features, and plenty of Florida sunshine.
