WDA 2018 will be held at the beautiful World Golf Village Renaissance St. Augustine Resort.
The World Golf Village is conveniently located to several natural attractions, such as Anastasia State Park and the Guana River Wildlife Management Area, a segment of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail (see local attractions listed below).

You’ll also be able to explore historic St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, just a short drive away, and if you are a golfer, the hotel features two exceptional championship golf courses (Slammer & Squire and King & Bear), as well as the World Golf Hall of Fame museum. Relax and rejuvenate at The Spa World Golf Village, a complimentary shuttle ride from the hotel. Or, enjoy shopping at the St. Augustine Premium Outlets, just a short distance from the hotel.

The Caddy Shack restaurant and bar located right next to the resort provides an ideal spot for socializing with old and new friends and just hanging out.
