Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) May 15, 2011
Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced its St. Augustine, Fla., resort, Grande Villas at World Golf Village, was a prime location for owners to stay while attending the World Golf Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, May 9.
Grande Villas at World Golf Village® offered 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.
There was plenty to do for non-golfers, as well. Owners practiced their backhand on the tennis courts, shot some hoops on the basketball court, perfected their spikes at the volleyball net and pumped some iron in the fitness center. After owners worked up a sweat, they had the opportunity to cool down with some leisurely laps in the spectacular heated pool. The showplace of Grande Villas, the pool was as refreshing to the eyes as it is to swimmers and sunbathers. All of the World Golf Village amenities were available for owners to enjoy. 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.
Owners, who stayed at Bluegreen’s elegant resort, had the ideal location for this year’s induction event. With their villas less than a two minute walk from where the inductions took place, it made the event special and convenient. Each year, World Golf Foundations recognizes golf’s greatest achievers. The Class of 2011 will induct Doug Ford, Jock Hutchingson, President George H.W. Bush and Ernie Els. To help aid in the inductions exposure, it was moved to 6 p.m. on the Monday of the Players Championship.
