ST. AUGUSTINE, FL (November 2009) – The Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village in Northeast Florida is offering to active members of the U.S. military a very nice “American Hero Rate” of just $89 per room, per night, which also includes complimentary breakfast-for-two in its 500 South restaurant. The offer is available through December 31, 2010, based on space availability. You simply need to ask for the special rate, and then show your U.S. military ID upon check-in.

The resort, which is located within lush World Golf Village right next to the impressive World Golf Hall of Fame, recently completed an impressive $10 million property-wide renovation. The project included the complete remodeling of all 301 guest rooms and suites, dramatic changes to the resort’s lobby atrium and entry area, remodeling of all guest room corridors, an expanded fitness center with new state-of-the-art equipment, remodeling of the billiard room, a new restaurant and bar, and enhancements to the meeting offerings and business center.

As a very nice tie-in with the “American Hero Rate,” the adjacent World Golf Hall of Fame is offering free admission to all active, reserve and retired members of the U.S. military for visits through December 31, 2009. The World Golf Hall of Fame is the ultimate destination for the celebration of golf’s greatest players, with fun interactive exhibits and historic golf artifacts. The offer is extended for up to four dependents, and also includes one round on the World Golf Hall of Fame’s real grass 18-hole championship putting course, per visit. The offer does not include admission to the IMAX® Theater at the World Golf Hall of Fame.

“Our nation’s military personnel make so many sacrifices, for which we’re truly grateful, and we’re offering this special rate so that they can enjoy a relaxing getaway at a beautifully remodeled resort,” said Mark Schwantner, general manager of The Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village.

Among the wealth of recreational options available at the resort are two championship golf courses (King & Bear, and Slammer & Squire); golf lessons at the renowned PGA TOUR Golf Academy; the nearby wonders of America’s oldest city, St. Augustine; and the pristine nearby Atlantic beaches.
