Very Nice

Course was in terrific shape overall. Greens smooth, relatively fast. Beautiful morning, dew sweeper tee time. Some bulkhead repair work on #13 tee. A few mosquitoes, but otherwise a most enjoyable outing.

Great course

We played this course early morning ( 7:52 a.m.) We were a twosome so the paired us with another twosome who were slow players but we had a good round.

The fairways are fairly wide on most holes but don't stray far into the rough, forest and water are down both sides. The rough was pretty long but manageable, the fairways were in beautiful shape and the greens were in great shape. We had a great time and will definitely play this course again.

I love this course. It meanders along the marsh and then takes you into the marsh on 12-16.

It is beautiful and challenging.

Would highly recommend to any golfer looking for a fun time and adventure on a golf course.

One of the best

This belongs up in one of the 10 best courses I've ever played. It has excellent greens which are fast but fair. The course layout changes while you play it. There are 4-5 holes that are located in marshland. The fairways throughout were like hitting off a carpet. Liked it so much my wife and I booked it for tomorrow.

A tale of 2 nines

Highly enjoyable, outstanding pace of play and friendly and customer focused staff. The lush tree lined fairways give way to Kiawah-like salt marsh holes. Very enjoyable, challenging track with well paced and true greens. Demands precision off the tee and long is death into the green complexes. Not overly long, but a solid, fair and fun course. Multiple tee boxes allow for all levels of play.

Scenic Course/Wildlife abounds

It had been 16 years since I played here. It's a fun, tight track with some real nice scenery and wildlife everywhere. Good condition. Cart paths need lots of work. Only complaint would be in the clubhouse, if you buy anything at the bar and use a credit card there's no way to add a tip on the receipt. So bring cash, and DEFINITELY bring your bug spray!

Always a great course

K&P is a great layout and the greens were running at a 10 on the stemp, so putting was a test when a lit of the public courses off island run 7-8. Worth the price on golf now.

Best Public course on the island

This was my third time playing The King and Prince course and, as usual, it did not disappoint. The layout is probably my favorite of any course I’ve played, and it is always in excellent condition from tee to green.

Awesome Scenic Island Golf Course

Love this course from when it was the Hampton Course years ago. Since the King & Prince took it and gave it a needed makeover, it is much more playable for the mid-handicapper, but still as scenic as it always was. Beautiful landscape views of the island marshes frame a very well laid out course. Wide open fairways with good greens make it an enjoyable course for vacationers. I try to book a round here every time I come to St. Simon's Island!

Wow

What a magnificent golf course. I guess I'm probably country come to town, but the conditions were perfect. The fairways were plush, the greens rolled true, (maybe a little slow) and the rough was just enough to be a penalty, but not ruin your round. Great experience. I played with some locals who gave some course knowledge, saved me at least 4 or 5 strokes for hidden water hazards. Will play again!

Awesome golf course

The golf course was in excellent condition. The greens were very good and putted true if you could read the line of the putt. Loved the 3 holes in the marsh. Definitely my favorite course to play on St. Simons Island.
