There are so many reasons to love St Augustine, Florida and the World Golf Village area and consider it for your new home.  Here we will begin to name a few that you may not see from simply driving or asking around.  

1 - World Golf Village area is zoned for some of St Johns County's most highly rated schools.  There are currently three highly rated elementary schools which include Wards Creek, Mill Creek and Picolata Crossing.  Pacetti Bay Middle School is another along with Mill Creek Academy's expansion plans to 8th grade.  World Golf Village is currently zoned for the prestigious Nease High School and will soon be home to a new high school within St John's County's top rated schools.  We expect this to be a fabulous addition to the County's commitment to ensuring continued quality to their education system while accommodating for the growth to this area.  

2 - The World Golf Village area is nestled on the other side of the new Silverleaf Plantation community which will open easy access to County Road 210 and 9B, approximately just 7.5 miles away.  The Silverleaf Plantation community will be developed to over 10,000 homes similar to its sister property at Oakleaf Plantation in Orange Park.  Silverleaf Plantation also plans to have a Town Center within the development.  This will make commuting from World Golf Village area to Jacksonville more accommodating with easy access to 9B as SR 16 will connect with St Johns Parkway through Silverleaf Plantation.  

3 - In addition, The Pavillion at Durbin Park has phase one of development well underway and will be approximately 10 miles away from SR 16 in World Golf Village areaThe Pavillion at Durbin Park is slated to be nearly double the size of St Johns Town Center according to a First Coast News article.  This will be a sweet spot for those who wish to be slightly away from the hustle and bustle but still wish for easy access to everything.

4 - The World Golf Village area has easy access to the Historic District of Downtown St Augustine and Gorgeous beaches.  Founded in 1565, Historic St Augustine has amazing sightseeing opportunities, fabulous eateries and many things to do for all ages.  St Augustine is visited by over 1.5 Million tourists each year.  For more information click here.

5 - The World Golf Village area is home to many communities of all sizes with new homes, more established communities, country club and golfing, condominiums, town homes, amenities and smaller low fee communities. There are communities for every lifestyle in this World Golf Village vicinity.  Some of these communities include the Neighborhoods of World Golf Village, The World Golf Village Home of the King and the Bear, Sevilla, Murabella, Samara Lakes, Trailmark, Gran Lake, Arbor Mill and Heritage Landing at World Golf Village.  Some of these communities also offer RV and Boat Storage.

6 - The World Golf Village area has access to quality medical care with the new Flagler Health Center at Murabella.  This facility provides Urgent Care, Imaging and laboratory diagnostics and primary care options close to home.

7 - The World Golf Village area is also home to the new state of the art Flagler Center YMCA.  This facility offers physical fitness programs and classes for all ages with children facilities as well.  

8 - World Golf Village area is also home to Great Shopping options with easy access to the St Augustine Outlet Malls right up the street.  The St Augustine Outlets offer incredible shopping opportunities and are super convenient to the World Golf Village area.

9 - Fishing is amazing along the St Johns River and there are many super convenient places to drop your boat in the water or drop a line in at the Shands Bridge or Trout Creek.  This area will also be highlighted in the near future once the First Coast Expressway expansion makes its way into St Johns County.  Stay tuned for more details on this.

10 - World Golf Village is home to the famous World Golf Hall of Fame.  If you have not yet visited, I highly recommend it!  There are currently only 160 Hall of Fame Inductees.  Most of them were some of the world's most elite competitive golfers.  Others were honored for their contribution to the sport in other ways.  Take a stroll down memory lane for the history of the game in Scotland while visiting.  Play one of the world famous courses virtually.  There are numerous President's who are Inductees and each Inductee has a personal locker for you to explore there as well!  Some of our well known elite golfers were not even inducted yet into the World Golf Hall of Fame.  To be inducted to the World Golf Hall of Fame is the highest honor within the sport.
