The King & Bear is hands down the best semi-private club in Northeast Florida. The greens and fairways are perfect right now. They have over seeded the fairways and tee boxes for the winter so it is going to be one of the few emerald courses here in a week or so after this arctic blast makes the grass at the other courses go dormant. As for this most recent cold snap, the greens should become lightning fast now as they did not over seed them, but they do continue to dye them so as not to create too much of a contrast with the fairways. FYI the dye the use is awesome as it does not come off on your ball or cloths like some of the dyes used by other facilities. If I were planing a weekend golf trip to the St. Augustine/Ponte Vedra area I would play the K&B's sister course the Slammer & Squire (same conditions as K&B), King & Bear and TPC Sawgrass.
