Where2Golf says: 

World Golf Village (Slammer & Squire course): Starting directly behind the World Golf Hall of Fame, the Slammer & Squire course quickly gets into a beautifully natural "flatwoods" setting, albeit with a touch of traffic noise from nearby I-95. The clockwise loop of front-9 holes require accurate driving from the tee, and some good course management to avoid the many water hazards lining the fairways. The woods and water of the front-9, give way to a much more open parkland style on the back, with plenty of views onto the World Golf Village, but lacking the natural beauty of the earlier holes. Throughout, the upkeep is excellent and this should prove to be a "friendly" course for players of all levels.
