Golf courses anchor La Fontana at World Golf Village


When developers came up with the idea for a community designed around the international game of golf, they decided to use the design skills of four golfing greats and World Golf Hall of Fame members – Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen. The result was a pair of award-winning golf courses that anchor World Golf Village and one of the community’s newest offerings, La Fontana.

Comprised of three- and four-bedroom condominium homes, La Fontana offers scenic frontage along the 8th hole of the Bobby Weed-designed Slammer & Squire Golf Course. When designing the Slammer & Squire, Weed collaborated with Snead and Sarazen to develop a course that showcases the landscape’s natural beauty.

In addition to the golf course that is literally in their backyard, residents of La Fontana can also take advantage of the links and club amenities of the nearby King & Bear Golf Course – the world’s only golf course co-designed by Palmer and Nicklaus. Featuring loblolly pines, oaks and indigenous coquina rocks, the King & Bear incorporates traditional Florida landscapes. The club’s pool and lighted tennis courts are also available to La Fontana residents.

“This is a unique environment in which to live, and buyers who are drawn to La Fontana are thrilled with all World Golf Village has to offer – one of the favorites being access to these amazing golf courses,” said Michael Bugg, principal of The Condo Group. “This community attracts residents who appreciate the international flavor of World Golf Village but who also want to pursue their interests and activities in a peaceful residential setting.”

Bugg said La Fontana is an ideal opportunity for buyers who wish to “rightsize” or re-think the space they need, and still maintain their desired lifestyle and amenities. Residences in La Fontana offer the feel of a stand-alone home, he said, yet with a low-maintenance lifestyle. Homes feature gourmet kitchens, master suites, private detached garages and screened lanais with nature and golf course views. Entrance foyers, wood floors and flexible living and dining areas are also available.

Developed by WGV Residential Ventures I and longtime builder partner Gantt Builders, La Fontana homes are priced starting at $280,000 and range from 1,915 square feet to 2,400 square feet.

La Fontana is located at 90 Champions Way, St. Augustine and its sales center is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
