I booked this under a hot deal - even paying full price at the club house would have been worth it. Greens were excellent. Holes 12-15 were a splendid surprise. Gorgeous! I played sea island last summer. This course is in better shape than sea island was last year.

Beautiful course amazing fairways and greens. Tough first time playing without any hole layouts on score card or cart. Incredible Marsh holes on back 9. Definitely would return at golfnow pricing at $65 for 18.

The course is just average for a $53 round and $8 for a bag of balls. I play a good bit of golf and am a pretty easy going fella, but the experience I had in the pro shop with the attendant was by far the worst ever. For someone working in the customer service arena she was lacking an astounding amount of 'I care about my job and the people playing golf here'. She was rude, disrespectful and not the least bit helpful, almost as if she was trying to be bad at her job. I kept waiting on Ashton Kutcher to jump out from behind the counter because I thought I was being Punk'd. There are too many great golf courses in the area to play this one again. Pass.

It is a challenging course with lots of character. The greens seemed to be much faster than any of the courses I played. Remember to take lots of insect repellent with you because the bugs are relentless and aggressive, my biggest distraction. Otherwise, a wonderful course to play.

This was the last course we played on our vacation and it was worth the wait. The staff in the clubhouse were friendly and helpful. Between the beauty of the course and the challenge of its layout, it is a true gem. The course just gave and gave and gave. I loved it and will play it again in a heartbeat. Paired up with two gentlemen we had never met (Bill and Leland) and had a great time.

I received a call from the golf shop to tell me, the rate I paid online didn't include the cart fee, I only learned this as I was driving to the coarse after booking a last minute tee time. The man I spoke with assured me this was on my reservation and yes it was at the bottom of the ticket. My fault for not reading but I was still not happy and to add to the frustration, the driving range was closed and then I was chased by monster horse flies all 18 holes. Disappointed and I wont return.

I cannot recommend this golf course enough! The value, course conditions, and over tranquility of the northern tip of St Simons Island make this golf course special. The price is very low considering the quality and location- and when you get to play the marsh holes...wow- breathtaking! Enjoy your round at the King & Prince...you won't regret it!- Jason Panuthos

While on vacation to St. Simons Island, my wife and I

had the opportunity to play an extremely enjoyable, yet

challenging, round of golf at the King and Prince Golf

Club. The conditions were absolutely perfect. It was 80 degrees, with a nice breeze to keep you comfortable and the course was amazing. The best part of the course is the back 9 and the greens. The greens are fast and true.

If you're ever on or near St. Simons Island play this course. You won't be disappointed.

I would have imagined this course as the place a King would have entertained and challenged his regal guests during their trips top this secluded island! Fine layout with the back nine more links-like than the traditional front nine. Great greens that were rolling perfectly and quite true. Fairways were challenging . Staff were very helpful.
