Resident News and Events for World Golf Village


The following upcoming events are planned for the World Golf Village

Events are for residents of :

King and Bear, Royal Pines, Turnberry, Saint Andrews, the Residences, Isles of the World and Glenmoor

 The only accepted communities of World Golf Village

The HOA fees of these communities go towards the upkeep and maintenance of World Golf Village.  No other communities or neighborhoods contribute and therefore are not included in these social events.



Latest Activities click on the left side Link "Calendar"

A reminder to everyone: 

Use of Fireworks is Prohibited in the King and Bear.

This is just not our rule, Florida state law likewise prohibits the discharge of fireworks by anyone without a permit.  There are a lot of homes and vegetation surrounding us that are susceptible to burning.  Errant fireworks present a clear and immediate danger.  We ask that everyone please abide by this rule.

Motorcycle decal 2013

King & Bear Motorcycle Windshield ID Sticker   

as of - 6/2013

King and Bear residents who drive motorcycles now have an identifiable windshield sticker available. This new decal is an attempt to make gate access easier for resident riding motorcycles.  Please note that it is not mandatory.
Seeing as the resident bar codes don’t work well on motorcycles, bikers have long been at a disadvantage by not being able to use the automatic resident lanes in entering the King & Bear.
Displaying this new decal on your motorcycle windshield will help the guards to recognize you as a resident of the King and Bear. It should avoid having to stop your bike, and get your wallet, then pull out your driver’s license to show the guard.
The numbered decals are shown below and are available at the May Management office for a cost of $10.


Not only will the decal easily identify you and your motorcycle as a resident of the King and Bear but should cut down on the delay time in entering at the gates.
This decal will not work as a bar code so you will still have to go through the visitors’ lane.
When approaching the gates just point to your windshield decal.
It is a much simpler and safer way of entering your neighborhood.

Traffic tickets

 Traffic Tickets will be issued within the King and Bear.

The Board of Directors of the King and Bear have asked the St. John's Sherriff's Department to begin issuing tickets instead of warnings to speeders within the King and Bear. The decision comes after numerous complaints of cars speeding within the gates of the King and Bear.

Obey the speed limits signs and avoid the tickets. This is your last warning!

A speed of 39 mph will get you a $130 ticket! A speed of 40mph  will set you back $199.00

Donate to the St Augustine Wild Reserve!


The St. Augustine Wild Reserve is a non-profit corporation that acts as a forever home for unwanted exotic animals. 


Our goal is to give these animals the best life possible and we need your help to do it. We are trying to raise $80,000 as part of an expansion project to add enrichment enclosures to the already existing habitats.

These enclosures will enhance the animals' mental and physical stimulation by giving them more space and adding variety to their daily lives.

Log onto www.GoFundMe.com/wildreserve to view our video, and to make a donation. No donation is too small! Thank you! Help us reach our goal, please.
