This is a lovely course at the north end of St. Simons Island well worth the drive for the scenery alone but it also happens to be a challenging place to play -- particularly from the longer tees . There are postcard marsh views, including four holes on the back nine right through a coastal marsh environment. The par 5 there demands precision or you will lose a ball or maybe two. The rest of the course is surrounded by Georgia pines and forest lush enough to draw deer and plenty of wildlife and you hardly notice the homes in the quiet community. One warning: In the summer, the bugs can be abundant so be prepared.

Great course layout mixing nice views of the marshes along with a challenging routing. Fairways were in fairly good condition and the greens were rolling fast and true. Friendly and helpful staff; very good driving range; well stocked pro shop and snack bar. Tee boxes accommodate different skill levels and offer a fair challenge from any set you choose to play. This course is a step up from the other public course on the island and worth a visit.

I love The King & Prince Golf Course at Hampton Point on St. Simons Island. It’s beautiful and often challenging, especially in the marsh holes in the back nine. Someday I would like to go on safari with alligator hunters to retrieve all the lost golf balls in the marshes, woods, and lakes.

Woke up super early, drive from Savannah. Gnats were out. Greens were super fast. Tee to green was what I expected from a resort course. Only criticism would be is to warn the golfers that you just painted the cups. The first hole I got white paint on my hands and my black pants because I put my ball in my pocket. I went to pro shop and the lady working said that the paint might come out. Wow!!!! Not the response I was looking for. She handed me a card. Said call this guy and sent me on my way.To say the least it was on my mind, they weren't cheap pants.

Great course and plenty of scenic holes throughout round. Love the back 9 holes and the beautiful marsh trail holes. Excellent fairways, soft sand and manicured quick greens. Glad I stopped at St. Simmons and really enjoyed the golf experience.

A thoroughly enjoyable course with exceptional views on the marshland holes. Very challenging in high winds. The greens are outstanding. Start a putt on line and it will roll true.

Special thanks to General Manager Rick Mattox. I was playing as a single and when he determined that I was set to be behind four foursomes of a club association he took me to an open spot on the back nine to begin my round. I had clear sailing the entire day.

It was the kind of extra effort that communicates concern for the customer. It did not go unnoticed.

The course is in a beautiful marshland natural setting, in excellent playing condition, with challenges for every level of golfer.

It was a very windy day, so the game suffered due to 'interesting' ball flights, but very enjoyable nevertheless.

Will play again on a fairer day.
