Well worth a visit

The World Golf Village is the ultimate golf vacation destination in historic St. Augustine, just south of Jacksonville of Florida’s northeast coastline. World Golf Village is home to the World Golf Hall of Fame, where the greatest players and contributors are honored.

The World Golf Hall of Fame serves as a steward of the game through engaging, interactive storytelling and exhibitions featuring artefacts, works of art, audio, video and photography significant to the history of golf and its members.

Explore genuine artefacts from our members though a variety of exhibits and the Member Locker room. See our newest exhibits: Class of 2017 Induction Exhibit and THE PLAYERS Experience.

Tickets include all-day admission, a round on the 18-hole natural grass putting course and a shot on our Challenge Hole—a 132-yard island green reminiscent of the 17th TPC Sawgrass.
