Best course I’ve ever played!

The checking was the easiest and fastest I’ve ever had before. They really do treat you like a king it seems like haha. The course was in amazing condition. The fairways were the best I’ve ever played on before. The holes out in the marsh are very cool, you can see at least 10 miles out there.

Great unique layout!

You get the best of both Spanish moss covered forest and marsh links. It was amazing.

Disappointed

We had a foursome that was pushed all morning. We let a threesome, go through, then a two some, then another threesome. We still finished in 3hours 45 minutes, but the round was spoiled by poor management of the groupings behind us.

Poorly managed

Nice course, good condition.
No marshall, got behind a 4 some that knew nothing about golf rules. Drove carts up to the greens on par 3s, they never acknowledged allowing several faster groups to play thru.
No beverage cart on a hot day on what could have been a nice round of resort golf.

Great beach course

We thought the course was in great shape. It had some picturesque beach course views with some challenging holes. Pace of play was a little slower than I prefer, but I enjoyed the round just the same.

Afternoon Wanderer

Posted on the site in BOLD letters for all to see was an indication the greens had recently been aerated and top dressed. I can't actually rate the greens due to the heavy application of sand but having played this strand of bermuda it would not have changed my score......I can't read them at all, so no birdies on my card. I played with a greatly reduced afternoon rate due to the condition so the value was extraordinary. The course begins with a par 4 slight dogleg to the R, fairway bunkering and at the green not severe but with undulation in the green. The course ends with a simple straight forward shortish par 5. In between you'll find the usual suspects - slightly curving fairways both R & L, reasonably measured par 3s and reachable in 2 par 5s for the longer hitters. This layout is a must play while at Saint Simons as it winds through residential real estate without making one feel confined and the holes in the marsh area are wonderfully framed and presented well for play and photos.

I really enjoyed my time at King and Prince golf course. The greens were going through aerification, but were still in decent shape. This is the second time I played this course and i enjoyed it even more the second go around!
