There's a reason that the World Golf Village, home to the World Golf Hall of Fame and two championship courses, is located in North Florida, just minutes north of St. Augustine's historic district. Our temperate winters, perfect springs and autumns, and long summer afternoons coupled with the slight ocean breeze offer prime golfing conditions throughout the year. The Player's Championship has been consistently hosted at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, also just north of St. Augustine, since 1977. The Ginn Championship at Hammock Beach (held each year from March 30th through April 5th) is also a short drive from St. Augustine in Palm Coast, Florida. It is a PGA TOUR Champions Tour event offering weeklong events for fans. The Handa Cup, the Official Legends Tour of the LPGA, is played on the Slammer & Squire golf course on December 5th and 6th at World Golf Village. Register to play in the annual Murray Brothers Charity Golf Tournament at World Golf Village in April. Stay and play in the Old City while attending or participating in any of these exciting golf events.

You needn't even travel out of the city limits to enjoy The St. Johns Golf Course, located in St. Augustine, hosts clinics for adults through The First Tee. Improve your game or just relax while golfing on lush courses close to gorgeous resorts and other accommodations. See our complete list of over 50 courses in or near St. Augustine/St. Johns county below.
