KPGC

Everything great except lady at reception and no starter, no instructions which cart to take, if we would play with someone else. The lady could have explained more before we left the pro shop as there was no one else to direct us.

Chilly day

For islanders, the 50s are pretty chilly. But it was a gorgeous day on a gorgeous course. The tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens are in perfect shape, but watch out for those fast greens. The only downside today was the slow pace of play, thanks to a foursome two groups ahead, who kept everyone standing around. The groups behind them barely finished before dusk. But slow pace rarely occurs at King & Prince and when it does you get to admire the beautiful vistas.

Chilly and chilling

Our second trip this week to King and Prince. As always, the tee boxes, fairways and greens were in excellent shape. We played in the afternoon as the days are getting shorter, but the pace of play was excellent and we finished in bright daylight. We are looking forward to playing again very soon.

King & Prince is an outstanding Venue

The King & Prince golf course on the north end of Saint Simons Hampton Point is my favorite course on the Island. The tee boxes, the fairways, and greens are all superb! The restaurant and golf staff are super. The greens are both soft and fast. They roll true. always my first choice!

Nature trail

An extremely beautiful course, particularly on the back-nine marsh holes. Conditions were splendid. There was some puddling from recent rains on the edges, but the fairways were clear and and greens perfectly manicured. Lots of wildlife today, including several alligators (one a whopper), flocks of ibis and wood storks, gaggles of egrets, sightings of hawks and osprey, and several braces of deer. Don't miss playing at King & Prince when in the neighborhood of St Simons.

Singing in the rain

Although there was a steady light rain for about 10 holes, the superb conditions on the tee boxes, fairways, rough, and greens made our play an even steadier pleasure. The members of our threesome often commented on what a beautiful course the King & Prince is. Our favorite place to play.

Marshy and sporty

It's just 6,400 yards, but King & Prince is a solid golf course. It starts off nice but relatively standard for the coastal Southeast: live oaks, nice housing set back in the woods for the most part. But it's the stretch of holes 11 through 15 that give the course its appeal. The latter quartet of that stretch sit on their own island dredged out of expansive marshland, meaning you'll get a burst of beautiful scenery for a crucial hour or so of your round. Rick Mattox and his staff help extend that high with their friendly, unfussy service.

Don’t miss it

K&P is a wonderful golf course, the best in the area. The layout is both challenging and beautiful. Today we were hit by a quick storm, but no one thought of leaving. A growing group of us play there as often as possible. They also have the best hot dogs on the island! Great friendly staff.

Great Day!

A beautiful test of golf for players at any level. Five sets of tees offer the opportunity to play it forward. Course conditions were excellent and the greens were quick. The marsh holes offer spectacular views. I’ll be back.

Beautiful course...great staff.

The course and the surrounding neighborhood are beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We ate lunch at the restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The only complaint I have about the course is that a couple of holes weren’t friendly to lefties (some tree blocked me from hitting a draw off the tee box on a par 3). Other than that, it was great. I would definitely play it again.
