King & Bear

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 5s amid lakes, loblolly pines and 200-year-old live oaks. King & Bear is also rated among Golf Weeks Top Resort Courses.

Slammer & Squire

Hall of Fame members Sam (The Slammer) Snead and Gene (The Squire) Sarazen 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 3s, preserved woodlands, wetlands and natural beauty.
