Nicklaus and Palmer Dedicate New Course

RSS

Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer officially dedicated their first co-designed golf course, The King & The Bear, Wednesday in St. Augustine Fla. The dedication kicked off World Golf Foundation 2000, at the World Golf Village.
 
In 1998 Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen collaborated as player consultants with designer Bobby Weed for the World Golf Village's first course, The Slammer & The Squire.
 
After the Wednesday's dedication Nicklaus and Palmer paired up to play the course's first official round of golf.
 
The King & The Bear course will host the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf event beginning in 2001.
