The King and Prince Golf Course occupies some of coastal Georgia's most beautiful and historic acreage. The site was once home to the Hampton Plantation: an 18th century, antebellum plantation where cotton, indigo, and rice dominated. And now, golf is king.
Opened in August of 1989, the course was designed by renowned architect Joe Lee, considered a master at coaxing brilliant design from the landscape. However, as Lee walked the land in early 1988, we grew concerned that the site might not support the layout he planned. Noticing a small cluster of marsh islands located across a small tidal creek just west of the Plantation's high ground, Lee's skills in creative land use envisioned a bold stroke of genius that would become The King and Prince Golf Course's signature.
Today, golfers travel along 800-feet of elevated, marsh-traversing cart bridges to experience play on four spectacular holes gently carved from the marsh islands. While these four signature holes highlight play on the King and Prince Golf Course's back nine, the entire 18-hole, Par 72 course combines for an experience that always finds it on golf's "must-play" lists on the Florida to Myrtle Beach circuit.
Joe Lee's tour de force design bends around towering oaks, along large areas of saltmarsh, and across lakes and lagoons. In 2009, the course underwent a dramatic fine-tuning that solidified its place among the south's finest courses.
The King and Prince Golf Course is owned and operated by The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort.
