Bluegreen Vacations, a leading provider of Colorful Places to Play, today announced its St. Augustine, Fla., resort, Grande Villas at World Golf Village, is a prime location for owners to stay while attending the Nancy Lopez: Pride, Passion and Personality Exhibit at the World Golf Hall of Fame, Dec. 17-31.
Grande Villas at World Golf Village® offers unsurpassed country club living. This year-round golfer’s Mecca offers two championship 18-hole courses designed by legendary golf pros Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Restaurants, shopping, an IMAX® theater, and the World Golf Hall of Fame® are just a short walk away. Highlighting the golf experience is the PGA TOUR STOP, the largest golf shop in the U.S.
“Nancy Lopez was a joy to watch on the course, but it was her genuine personality is what fans fell in love with,” said Veski Inanov, General Manager of World Golf Village. “Her exhibit will be one of the top things for our owners to do and view during their vacation experience. Our Bluegreen travel guides will also be able to help provide additional information on this ‘must-see’ event.”
Bluegreen owners wanting to add seeing one of the all-time best women’s golfers to their St. Augustine vacation experience can make their way to the World Golf Hall of Fame®. Few have had more success than the Hall of Fame golfer. With 48 LPGA Tour Event victories, three of which were major championships, Nancy Lopez is arguably one of the most successful female golfers of all time. In 1978 Lopez became the only women to win the LPGA Rookie of the Year, Player of the Year and Vare Award in the same year. The exhibit features over 150 pieces of memorabilia from her Hall of Fame career, including her legendary LPGA championship trophies. Not only does the exhibit feature her on the course accomplishments, but it also displays the charismatic, poised, entertaining young lady that Lopez demonstrated throughout her 25 year career.
