Love Golf? Live in St. Augustine!
As a golfer, there truly is no better feeling than when your tee shot makes a hole-in-one. As a home buyer, there is no better feeling than when you find your forever home. In St. Augustine, FL, golf and quality, new home construction go hand-in-hand. The city’s idyllic location allows neighboring residents living in communities with homes built by Northeast Florida home builder Landon Homes the opportunity to enjoy the golf club lifestyle just a short drive away at St. Johns Golf & Country Club and World Golf Village. Both of these award-winning St. Augustine courses offer golfers of all skill levels an unforgettable experience.
Hailed as one of Florida’s premier golf courses, St. Johns Golf & Country Club allows nearby Landon Homes homeowners to tee off on a lushly landscaped course carved out of a pine forest. The 18-hole Clyde Johnson- designed course offers players a memorable and competitive golf experience with each swing of the club. Known for its consistent quality of service and conditions, it is no surprise it was rated as the 5th best course on GolfNow.com through Golf Advisor and has been nationally ranked for customer satisfaction and loyalty by the National Golf Foundation. Players can take advantage of the five sets of tees plus a family tee that varies the length of the course from 7,250 yards down to 2,400 yards. In addition, golfers have the opportunity to experience the most entertaining round of golf ever on a GolfBoard – a clever fusion of a skateboard, surfboard, snowboard, and golf cart. Located between St. Augustine and Jacksonville, FL, the 18-hole course is in close proximity to residents living in Landon Homes’ new home communities in St. Augustine including Treaty Oaks, TrailMark and Heartwood.
Located in the heart of St. Augustine lies the renowned World Golf Village. This highly sought after golf destination offers two championship courses nestled in a unique resort-style setting– The King & Bear and The Slammer & Squire. Each signature course offers a distinctive style of play to challenge both novice and avid golfers. Acclaimed for being the only golf course in the world co-designed by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, The King & Bear provides the ultimate golf experience for residents living in Landon Homes’ numerous communities located in and around the charming St. Augustine area. With a front nine that is an open, links-style layout that gives a nod to the heritage of the historic city of St. Augustine, and a back nine that is more traditional Florida golf fringed with loblolly pines, old oaks, indigenous coquina rock, and numerous water features, golfers will enjoy the resulting all-inclusive course. From Nicklaus’ inviting fairways to Palmer’s fast greens, players will experience 7,279 yards of unparalleled, premium driver- friendly play. Not surprisingly, this well-maintained course has won numerous accolades including being named to Golf Digest’s list of the Top Public Courses in Florida in 2015. The King & Bear’s sister course The Slammer & Squire, was designed by architect Bobby Weed in collaboration with Hall of Fame Members Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen. This award-winning course is comprised of two distinct nines with contoured greens, generous fairways, and water hazards along with remarkable views of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Players will appreciate the natural landscape that has been carefully preserved through the well-groomed Slammer & Squire course which highlights the pristine wooded areas, wetlands, and natural beauty.
For golf enthusiasts on the hunt for a new place to call home, the picturesque St. Augustine communities where Landon Homes is building provide a convenient commute for a round of golf at Florida’s finest courses any day of the week.
