During this season of thankfulness, reflecting on all the good in life is inevitable. Your home, a place of shelter and retreat, is likely near the top of most lists of things to be grateful for. Residents of World Golf Village have an abundance of wonderful treasures in their community. Join us as we recall a few of those treasures as we are reminded of just how fortunate we are to be World Golf Village neighbors.

  1. Award-Winning Schools 

World Golf Village families have much to be thankful for with the St. Johns County School District. Named one of the finest school districts in the United States, St. Johns County schools are ranked number one out of sixty-seven districts in Florida and have received a grade of “A” several years in a row. Students continue to shine in standardized tests and go on to thrive in college. Knowledge is power and families in World Golf Village are fortunate to have a stellar public school system to send their children to. 

  1. Convenient Proximity to Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and The Beaches 

You truly get the best of all worlds by living in World Golf Village. The location of World Golf Village allows you to conveniently drive to locations in the largest landmass city of Jacksonville, historic St. Augustine, and the miles of stunning beaches along the coast with ease. This allows World Golf Village neighbors to take advantage of all the exciting happenings taking place on the First Coast. 

  1. Stunning Golf Courses

Many residents of World Golf Village find themselves with golf courses right in their own backyard. Two world-class championship golf courses, King & Bear and the Slammer & Squire are proud to call World Golf Village home. Whether you are a veteran or beginner, both courses are ready to treat you to a magic game of golf with their stunning scenery and immaculate conditions. Complete your experience golfing at World Golf Village by visiting each course’s pro shop and dining rooms. 

  1. Natural Habitat

Northeast Florida’s natural beauty is the backdrop for The Neighborhoods of World Golf Village. More than forty-four percent of the community’s land is protected as a nature preserve. That is more than 2,700 of the 6,300 acres! This earned World Golf Village the ENVY award for building in harmony with Florida’s sensitive environment. With many parks and walking trails in World Golf Village, residents have ample opportunities to explore the great outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather in Northeast Florida. 

One thing is for sure, World Golf Village residents have a lot to be thankful for… as this list could go on and on.
