The resort has hosted the PGA Tour’s Players Championship tournament annually since 2007 at TPC Sawgrass, located nearby in Ponte Vedra Beach. The idea for the World Golf Village was conceived in 1990 by Hall of Fame members Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer who were playing a round at Bay Hill Club.[1]

The idea later evolved into the World Golf Foundation, which was incorporated in 1992 with the intent of building appropriate facilities and raising funds to create a permanent home for the World Golf Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame was originally to be built in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Ground was broken there, but Pinehurst’s plan for the Hall of Fame to be its tourist anchor did not come to fruition as planned and the project went bankrupt. The hall of fame relocated on property adjacent to the TPC at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. In 1993, the PGA Tour purchased the adjoining Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa and renamed it the PGA TOUR Headquarters Hotel.

In the late 1800s, the Scottish sport of golf was taking off in the United States. The problem was that the best courses were located far away from most people, and traveling to them was difficult. To solve this problem, railroad companies began constructing luxury resorts near their tracks. This made it easier for people to travel to these courses and enjoy a vacation at the same time.

In 1895, John D. Rockefeller built The Stanwich Club, one of the first golf clubs in America. It sat along a riverbank in Greenwich, Connecticut, and had a nine-hole course designed by Charles Blair Macdonald. After playing there, Rockefeller said that “golf is a good walk spoiled.”
