ST. AUGUSTINE, FL– Car enthusiasts were in for a real treat at the 10th Annual “Vettes at the Village” all-Corvette show recently conducted at World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida.

Corvettes were positioned along World Golf Village’s scenic “Walk of Champions” walkway, which has bricks featuring the signatures of past and present golf legends, and in front of the newly-remodeled Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village, seen here. The event, which was free and open to the public, even included a hole-in-one contest at World Golf Village’s Island Challenge Hole (a replica of the famous 17th Hole of the Stadium Course at theTPC at Sawgrass), with the chance to win a brand new Corvette. “Vettes at the Village” was sponsored by the North Florida Corvette Association and the Corvette Club of Mandarin.
