Slammer and Squire Golf Course at World Golf Village
World Golf Village is home to 36 challenging holes of championship golf. The Slammer & Squire Course is named after the two World Golf Hall of Fame legends, Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen, who served as consultants to the course's designer, Bobby Weed. The golf course is known for its tricky par-3 holes and the carefully preserved beauty of the landscape. Its traditional layout meanders through native flatwoods and hardwood hammocks, running alongside wetland preserves and a wildlife habitat. The scenic Slammer & Squire Course features contoured greens and gently rolling, generous fairways. There is also an abundance of water on the golf course in the forms of lakes and marshes.

A must play golf course
This golf course is beautiful, it's on my bucket lists to play and I am glad that I finally played this golf course twice.
Golf at its Best
Slammer Squire was a great track. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience
Fun Course...Pristine Conditions!
Slammer & Squire was a beautiful and fun course to play. It was actually a little more difficult than I was expecting. The course was in pristine shape. I would definitely recommend playing if you are in the area...especially for the price.
Great Golf Course, the Slammer and the Squire
Outstanding Golf Course. Very nice clubhouse with restaurant that we ate in prior to our tee time.
Fun course to play
My wife and I played for the first time here and really enjoyed it. We aren’t great golfers so glad we had space between us and other groups playing. It was a little wet in some spots but otherwise course was great and greens were in excellent condition. Only thing that was an issue was it was middle of the day and they were still mowing parts of the course and followed us for a few holes, but was courteous when it was time to take our swings.
Good course, well kept, wide fairways and big greens. Not very challenging.
Pleasure to play!
King and Bear was in excellent condition and enjoyed playing this beautiful course very much. Recommend highly to everyone!
Had one the most enjoyable days on a course while on vacation played with a New Yorker and a couple local the New Yorker was a player we both shot 74 was a great day the course was about 2 weeks ahead of the other courses I played while here will always go back have played the king and the bear in past both are great tracks can’t wait to come back
Great track that can be played long and short
Played two times this week. The greens had been punched about 10 days prior but still rolled around a 9 and true. The sand traps and fairways were perfect. Fun track over all. Would definitely play again.
First time playing this course very nice course Will definitely will play again maybe playing in the winter. As a Florida residents price is on the high side. But great course
Hall of Fame Experience
It’s an all day experience that all golfers must come see and play. My day started off with playing the Slammer and Squire course which was in beautiful condition from tee to green. Greens were smooth and fast and the layout is challenging but getable. Once the round was over I walked over to the Hall of Fame which didn’t disappoint. So much to see and do and you also get to take a swing at their recreated TPC Sawgrass 17th hole. Between the course and Hall of Fame, it’s a must do and see if your in the area.
Very nice course - but quite busy
We played this course on Friday the week of The Players (the day after The Players was canceled in March 2020).
With thousands of golfers visiting the St Augustine / Ponte Vedra / Jacksonville area looking for a course to play on beautiful day ... the Slammer and Squire like every other nice course in the area was very busy.
Still, the staff was on top of it and kept the pace of play moving right along. The staff was friendly and accommodating, even when it got a bit crazy out there.
The course was in great shape (to be expected in mid-March in North Florida); the greens were rolling true and the fairways were in excellent shape.
As most reviews have mentioned - it's not the toughest course in the area, but for a mid to high teens handicapper playing from the correct tees - its a good course to hit a wide variety of shots.
I'll definitely play this course again.
Played The Slammer and Squire yesterday as part of a 9 day East Coast Golf Swing. It was a nice course, and not too hard to get the trip going. There were few forced carries and not a ton of water in play-especially on the front 9. Not the fault of the course, it was really wet due to alot of rain in the area, and cart path only, which slowed the round down some, but still finished in under 4.5 hours which I think is acceptable for a resort course in cart path restrictions. The customer service was just average. They werent rude or anything, but also not overly friendly, and didnt direct a first timer where to go, instead you had to ask to find your way around.
As for the course itself it didnt just wow me. As mentioned, it was in good shape, and wasnt overly difficult. But, it also didnt have that wow factor. Not alot of holes stand out in my memory. Just your average Florida course it seemed. The coolest hole is playing back towards the World Golf Hall of Fame on #9. Its one of those places I'm glad I played once, but probably wont play again, especially for over $100.
First time, compare to King and Bear, this is the course to play.
I played King and Bear earlier this year and Slammers this month. I liked Slammers better than King and Bear. Course was in great shape, value was good midweek, early afternoon tee time and great day of golf overall. Did the Hall of fame in the morning and played around 1:30 PM. Pace was good, greens were pretty fast, fairways were a little wet, from weeks of rain, but ball didn't plug too much in fairways. Think the course is fair, fun and really worth a visit. Will play again.
