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!

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.

Course was in incredible shape. Greens were running perfectly and the fareways were in great shape as well. Staff were very friendly and prices in the clubhouse were fare. Only complaint is the quantity of horse flys on the course. Had horse flys swarming me on every hole which was very annoying. They can't control those bugs though which is why I rated the course so high. If you have the chance, go golf there.

"ATTACK OF THE FLYING/BITING INSECTS"

The course fairways/greens/bunkers were in good shape and well maintained. The issue was the swarming and attacking flying insects. With the exception of the Par 3 and Par 4 in the midst of the windy marsh area, we found ourselves rushing shots and literally hurrying off the greens due to the highly aggressive biting horse flies and other flying insects that kept swarming around us. They seemed to follow the cart from hole to hole, and we only found relief while moving. As soon as we stopped to hit our shots, they were biting us and trying to fly into our ears, noses, eyes, and mouths.

The course should either have the entire area sprayed to kill these pests or plant vegetation that deters this nuisance. I wouldn't mind playing the course again without those creatures present, but we literally found the front 9 nearly unplayable due to the aggressive flying insects.

It was LITERALLY the LEAST ENJOYABLE round of golf that I and my playing partner ever experienced. It definitely was not worth the premium that the course cost.

The address through Golf Now is 100 Tabbystone, St. Simons Island, GA. However, the actual address is 180 Rice Mill, St. Simons Island, GA. I think the original course closed (part of the King and Prince Beach (and Golf Resort), and opened 25-30 minutes away in a residential development.

Other than the frustration of trying to find the course, it was a decent layout, great pace of play. Nothing extraordinary.

Picked as our first course in the area. First nine felt a little rushed as the 4 ball behind were playing the front tees and seemed to be playing greensome foursomes. Or they may have been trying to keep ahead of the rain. It really came down and we had to shelter on the 13th for a good while. After it eased the fairways held some water but the greens looked and played like they did before the rain. Oh, and the deer flies were a nightmare, but can't hold them against the course.

What a great facility and staff. Tees, fairways and greens were all in great shape and the course is beautiful. Other than our start being delayed by two corporate groups playing scrambles, everything was perfect. Another corporate group started behind us, but we only saw those in front of us or behind us when the paths crossed as we went out to the four holes on the island. Highly recommend and will play it more the next time I'm in Saint Simon.

I liked the courteous staff from the cart people to the pro shop staff. The setting is very attractive, with marshlands and homes. Everything appeared to be in good shape and well cared for, from the greens to the tees. Overall, it was a pleasant experience!
