WGV – Slammer & Squire Golf Course
The NEFSGA is returning to the WGV – Slammer & Squire course on Monday October 9, 2023. This will be a 9:00 am shotgun start with gross skins, blind bogey, closest to the pin. raffle and awards. No lunch at this venue.
Below is some information on the course from their website:
“The Slammer & Squire course officially opened to the public in May 1998 and has become a favorite Jacksonville Florida golf course. This 18-hole, 6,939-yard course was designed by architect Bobby Weed along with World Golf Hall of Fame Members, Sam Snead (the “Slammer”) and Gene Sarazen, (the “Squire”).
The three men shared a desire to build a golf course that would preserve the area’s natural beauty and reward good shot making….and that’s just what they did. This well-groomed course showcases the pristine, unspoiled wooded areas, wetlands and natural beauty of the region. It is relatively wide open with several contoured greens and impressive views of the World Golf Hall of Fame.
You’ll discover a layout that places an emphasis on the short game which was reflective of the finesse game that made the “Slammer” and “Squire” legends. And, like the King & Bear, it features several water hazards; but the picturesque views of the World Golf Hall of Fame will definitely overshadow any challenges you may face. In fact, you can almost hear the voices of legends rooting you on as you make your way to the 18th green.”
Invitations will be emailed to the membership on Saturday September 23, 2023.
