Nice course. Great staff!

The course was in great shape overall. A couple of tee boxes were a little rough.

The staff was very friendly and we played 18 in 3.5 hours.

A Must Play

It is a bit far for me to drive from Savannah but the course is well worth it. Love the layout and scenery is amazing. Course was in great shape always seems to be in great shape when ever I decide to play. Greens where spongey which was nice change of pace from some of Hilton head courses. Fairways and tee box where in great shape as well. If you are in area or can make the drive it is defiantly a course you should play.

Great course

I love this course. The layout is difficult, but fair. The conditions are fantastic. The staff is friendly and helpful. We played early and played in under 3 hours. We were practically alone on the court. We will be back.

Very good and challenging

The course is in a neighborhood surrounded by a marsh. The fairways are well maintained, and the greens well tended and consistent. There are lots of trees on the sides with overhanging branches, so you need to be fairly accurate with your drives. There is not the normal clean edge between the greens and the fringe, but still very acceptible. Roughs are not deep, but occassionally thick enough to challenge. Overall, a fun coarse to play. Worrh the price if at a discount. Bring bug spray, particularly if there is minimal breeze.

Stunning course!

This is a gorgeous golf course and it was in excellent condition. It was challenging without being intimidating. The front nine was traditionally beautiful . The back nine, with the island holes, was unique in its beauty. The only caution is that there are deer flies that bite. Bring and use repellent.

Fantastic course

The course is reasonably tough, and in great condition. I love the mini-Verdi greens, the are firm, but receive shots very well, and they roll absolutely fantastic. This is probably in my top 12 courses. We played early, a great 3 hour round. I’m playing it again later this week. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I’m a huge fan.

Great course

Outstanding golf course...conditions were great...ball sat up nicely in the fairways and the rough was forgiving...greens rolled true and the speed was great...plenty of challenges but friendly enough to enjoy...also, very friendly course for women..my wife played along with me and thoroughly enjoyed the course...if the wind is blowing into you and the green is elevated (even slightly) take at least one extra club...we will definitely play it again next time we’re in the area...don’t pass it up!

Outstanding layout and views, fast, true greens

King and Prince is off the beaten path. on the North end of St Simons Island and offers a quiet game of golf with friends. The views are outstanding, from the nice clubhouse, woods,, marshes, water, and green greed grasses on fairways and greens. The course is in excellent condition. Play it!

I will be back every chance I get

Very friendly staff to start with.
The course was almost perfect. Fairways were very nice, plush to firm fairways. Greens were hard to read for me but speed was fast and easy to judge....just hard to read the break. The grass was different then I have played. Maybe Kentiucky bluegrass around the greens, wider blades, nice!.

i will be back every chance I get for the price especially. My favorite course so far around St Simons area.
