We are all very happy to see that the World Golf Village area is growing again! You’ve probably noticed all the construction going on in the King & Bear, the Cascades, the Residences and the communities surrounding us. I analyze the Northeast Florida market statistics every month to see how our area is improving over time and I wanted to share the positive information I found. We have some really great things happening in and around WGV in 2014!
First, let’s look at what’s going on around our community and then we will look at what’s happening in WGV.
If you’ve been by the World Commerce Center recently, you’ve probably noticed all the construction going on. Mattamy Homes is building a community called Segovia, which will be a new townhome project of 220 homes.

If you ask Don Poppleton what inspired him and his wife Barbara to relocate from New England to World Golf Village more than 10 years ago, he might say it’s partly in the name. A champion golfer, Don now enjoys beautiful views of the King & Bear from his back yard in Windmill Estates and close proximity to top notch courses and amenities.
Don has also secured a position as a notable contributor to the community. He is currently serving in his second term on the Member Advisory Committee for the World Golf Village Golf Courses Club, and concluded his term as President last year.
We recently caught up with Don to ask some questions about himself and his experience here in World Golf Village.

We call Lynn Whitley, a Davidson Realty Agent and Turnberry homeowner, a “Super Resident” because she takes advantage of all that World Golf Village has to offer, almost on a daily basis. The best way to get to know Lynn is to take a glimpse at how she spends her day. So we asked Lynn to tell us in her own words how she spent an average work day and we tagged along to snap some photos.
Friday, February 10
My day started with coffee and breakfast at home in Turnberry, then a quick ride to the fitness center at the King & Bear. When the weather is nice, (which is most of the time for us St. Augustine residents), I get some extra exercise by riding over on my bicycle, since it is only about four miles from where I live in Turnberry. A morning workout gives me energy to power through my day.
At Davidson Realty, we are doing away with flyer boxes and using new technology (texting) for potential buyers to get information on our listings sent to their mobile phones on-the-spot. I stopped at my listing on Sluder Estates Lane on the way home from my workout and removed the flyer box, relocated my name rider to the bottom of the sign and added the texting rider to the sign.
