The course is a unique and historic collaboration between Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus and opened to the public in November 2000. The King & Bear is an 18-hole, par 72, 7,200-yard course featuring loblolly pines and open meadows on the front nine and the natural beauty of 200-year old live oaks complementing the back nine.

The signature feature of the course is placid lakes edged with large coquina rock. These beautiful lakes come back into play on 16 of the 18 holes.

Coquina rock is also incorporated into several bunkers and cart paths, lending visual texture to the stunning natural refinement of the land . This course is will challenge the skilled golfer while still being friendly to the novice.

Every tee shot offers you a unique look and a new opportunity to strategically plan your play. The King & Bear eagerly awaits you.
