La Fontana Opens Much-Anticipated Designer Model, Homes Nearing Completion

La Fontana, in The Neighborhoods of World Golf Village, is celebrating the grand opening of its designer model in its first of four planned buildings. Building one is nearing completion and move-in ready homes will be available soon. La Fontana is the final phase of The Residences and its beautiful buildings boast the only views of the 8th hole of the legendary Slammer & Squire golf course, the only collaboration between gold champions Jack Nicklaus and the late Arnold Palmer. The community is one of the only condominium homes available now in World Golf Village and in western St. Johns County.

Private tours of the newly-opened model and move-in ready homes are available now and La Fontana will hold a special event on Saturday, November 12. Visit for the latest announcements, events and incentives. Buyers are currently eligible for up to $3,500 in closing costs for their new homes.

La Fontana’s homes are the only condos located on the legendary Slammer & Squire golf course at World Golf Village. All the homes offer views of the 8th hole of this beautiful course – golfers and nature lovers alike will enjoy this tranquil setting.


When developers came up with the idea for a community designed around the international game of golf, they decided to use the collaboration and design skills of four golfing greats and World Golf Hall of Fame members – Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen. The result has been a pair of award-winning golf courses that anchor a vibrant, active community and some of the area’s most desirable and peaceful neighborhoods. This setting provides an ideal place for residents to work, play and live, while also being a place where visitors enjoy all the exciting aspects of a game that delights both participants and spectators.

    La Fontana at World Golf Village is one of the newest offerings in the Neighborhoods of World Golf Village. Consisting of gorgeous 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 Serazen to develop a course that showcases the landscape’s natural and abundant beauty. In addition to the stunning course that is literally in their backyard, residents of La Fontana can also take advantage of the links on the nearby King & Bear Golf Course – the only collaboration in the world co-designed by Palmer and Nicklaus. This course gives a nod to the nearby historic city of St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S., and also incorporates traditional Florida landscapes, with loblolly pines, oaks and indigenous coquina rock features. La Fontana residents have access to club amenities of the King & Bear, which includes pools and lighted tennis courts.
