The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort: A hidden treasure in Coastal Georgia

When we think of the great state of Georgia, the first city that often comes to mind is Atlanta as it serves as one of the nation’s most traveled destinations where the business of big city life can take over your days. 

As much as we enjoy this great city, from a resort golfing perspective it doesn’t provide you with the laid back, relaxed feeling that you are likely looking for on your next golf vacation.

For that, we suggest you look at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort in St. Simons Island, Georgia.  Located just north of the Florida/Georgia border just off the I-95 corridors exists a tranquil oceanside setting that is likely just what the doctor ordered for your next golf getaway, and we are here to provide you with some exclusive coverage of what you can expect at this historic resort.

The Golf

St. Simons Island gives you a private sanctuary setting as the island is under 18 square miles in total coverage, but for an area that isn’t large in stature, it certainly delivers when it comes to great golf.  Our team had the pleasure of visiting The King and Prince Golf Club and we were able to capture this exclusive drone footage of the entire course here for you.  

As you can see, this enjoyable John Lee-design was later restored and redesigned by Billy Fuller.


The Resort

When it comes to the incredible combination of Southern charm and oceanside views, The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort has you covered.  Originally opened in the 1930s as a dance club, the property was transformed in 1941 when the main hotel building officially opened giving visitors from all over a beachside sanctuary to enjoy.  Over the years, the resort has received multiple renovations and expansions including the recent overhaul of the oceanfront pool complex.

From a room perspective, the resort offers a wonderful variety of Rooms and Suites to choose from at the main hotel, beach villa accommodations, and resort residences that range from one to five bedrooms for those looking for a more secluded getaway.

In addition to the resort, the parent company of The King and Prince also owns the nearby Home2 Suites by Hilton St. Simons Island which provides visiting golfers a more affordable accommodation to choose from, as well as Hotel Simone, a boutique hotel only steps away from the main resort that gives you a more secluded option if you’d prefer.

Overall, this gives your golf group a multitude of options for enjoying your golf getaway to The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort so you can create the perfect trip for your crew’s needs.

Whether you are looking for a quick getaway or an extended vacation, The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort is a great option for those looking to enjoy a getaway to coastal Georgia.
