The King and The Prince is no allusion to Arnold Palmer; the golf course was a later addition to the resort of the same name, on the northwest side of St. Simon’s Island.

Joe Lee was the architect during 1989 and the resort acknowledges that it “grew concerned that the site might not support the layout [Lee] planned.” The designer adapted his plans to incorporate a series of marsh islands across Wilson Creek, which in time became the course’s signature stretch. Players will travel across more than 800 feet of bridges across holes Nos. 12 through 15. The plot includes two par threes with shots across the marsh, ranging between 120 and 155 yards.

The most adventurous may be No. 14, which — at 455 yards — is an eminently reachable par five. The trick will be to play its double dogleg without ending up in the wetland that lurks on both sides of the fairway. It’s a relatively simple birdie but a paramount eagle opportunity for the golfer more worried about having fun than tracking score. Indeed, the course remains a playable 6,450 yards from the back tees, beckoning players of all levels to enjoy a vacation round.

What a nice hidden Gem. In the backwoods - even during the day I suggest some off. The wooded course provides nice shade but the bugs like it too! Very nice. Ide go back.
