King & Bear Golf Course


There has never been a course like this. For the first time in history, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus have teamed together and built the King & Bear Golf Course at the World Golf Village. The two golf legends have collaborated on a truly remarkable course of unparalleled beauty, challenge, and design. Each hole contains characteristics of both players to create a unique golf course. 

It is a "driver's" course, which should come as no surprise as both Palmer and Nicklaus wielded awesome power games in their primes. You'll also experience the wide fairways of Nicklaus and the fast greens of Palmer. The course features Loblolly pines and open meadows on the front nine while the natural beauty of 200-year-old live oaks with vast, shady canopies perfectly complement the back. 

So enamored of the course he helped design, Arnold Palmer selected hole number 15 as one of his Dream 18 in Sports Illustrated's Preview to the Ryder Cup 2006. We think you'll agree.
