An article from the PGA has named the King and Prince Golf Course one of the best courses in Georgia.
A Quick Nine: Georgia’s Best Courses
by T.J. Auclair, Interactive Producer PGA.com
In terms of a rich golfing history, you’d be hard-pressed to find a place that tops the Peach State in that department.
Georgia is the home of Bobby Jones, the Masters, East Lake Golf Club, the NCAA national champion Augusta State men’s golf team (as well as runner-up Univ. of Georgia), the 2011 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club — and, more than anything — the place where you can find many of the best public courses in the country.
That’s where you come into the equation. For this week’s, ‘A Quick Nine,’ feature, we tasked our PGA.com Facebook fans with a difficult question: What is the best places to play in the state of Georgia?
There are so many great tracks to choose from, certainly there’s a strong argument that another dozen or so courses belong on this list. Apologies to many courses that didn’t make this listing but there are no wrong answers.
9. The Hampton Club, St. Simons Island, Ga. Take a look at the course description from its website:
“With four signature holes highlighting 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. Unique parkland design that play through the marsh from island to island on the back nine. Oak Trees line many of our beautiful fairways.”
