Superb conditions, stunning layout

This course is in excellent shape and is downright stunningly beautiful on the back 9. Never played anything like it. However, it is a very challenging track and the lack of a course map is disappointing. It would be stellar to have the screens on the cart for course management (including greens and pin placement), due to the importance of placing shots. But even that the course doesn’t have a simple layout available is surprising. Don’t get too wrapped up in knowing where to place your shot and you’ll have a blast!

St Simon golf

The King and the Prince golf course offered us a good playing layout. Tees can be used to fit our level of golf. Marshes got in my way but it was my first time there. I would recommend the course and would play it again.

Worth every penny!

I was very lucky to get a tee time. The course wasn’t crowded but it was worth the trip from Jacksonville. The wildlife was amazing. Great day and round!

Gem on the Island

Played this course multiple times prior. Course is in pristine condition and they must have hired new staff in the pro shop (after reading a few other reviews related to rude employees- which I've experienced as well). Pace of play was AWESOME and we never waited for a single swing. Greens were rolling great- beware, they first 4 greens are a bit slow then BOOM- they speed up real quick!!! Layout is great and not an overly challenging course even from the blues or the tips... beware though, the bugs this time of year!!! Bring your spray and just be prepared, but for any serious golfer, a small inconvenience for this beautiful course!!

Great track

Course was in good shape. Love the vast difference between the front and back 9 holes. Could use a Marshall to encourage pace of play.

Great course!

I have played King and the Prince many times and have always enjoyed this course. The layout is challenging but fair, and the greens are very well maintained. I particularly enjoy the four back nine holes situated in the marsh. If you love golf and choose St. Simons Island as a vacation destination, you need to check this place out!

Wonderful round rescued by nice neighbors

Great course and extremely nice members. As we prepared to tee off an excited foursome in front of us explained they were new to golf. Well, after we spent 45 minutes behind them to play the first two holes we made the decision to skip over them and go to hole four. There we were greeted by two members who, seeing our dilemma, welcomed us to join them. They were so kind and we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of golf and fellowship. And the course is awesome!

Prettiest course I've played in years

This is a true gem. This has to be one of Georgia's top 5 courses and it's accessible to the public. Tucked in Saint Simon's island, this course has some of the most beautiful holes you'll ever see in your life. Especially when you get to the marshlands. The course is in pristine condition. Tip my hat off to the course superintendent and the greens keepers. It's a tough challenge but it's also fair. Totally worth the $100.
