St. Simons Island – Georgia’s Golf Destination

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

A recent New York Times article by Karen Crouse showcased our island’s presence in the golfing world:

Three of the 12 players on the United States squad (Ryder Cup) live in St. Simons: Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker, who is one of Love’s four captain’s picks. It seems crazy to consider that an island with a population under 13,000 has four residents participating in the Ryder Cup, and crazier still to contemplate what might have been.

The Ryder Cup did not turn out in our favor, but life goes on, and St. Simons Island is proud to once again host the McGladrey Classic PGA Tour Golf Tournament this week at the Seaside Golf Course.   Davis Love III,  Zach Johnson and Chris DiMarco will be joined by 129 other PGA TOUR Professionals.  The tournament takes place October 18-21, 2012, with a concert by country music star Gary Allan on Wednesday the 17th.  Click here for more information.

McGladrey Classic Golf Tournament

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Amazing weather today and the rest of the week for the inaugural McGladrey Classic Golf Tournament played on the Seaside course here on St Simons Island, Georgia.  Bright blue skies and 80 degrees!

Here at The King and Prince Resort, we are hosting about 40 of the golfers and wish them all the best of success.  It has been exciting for our guests and resort staff to meet the golfers, as they are very friendly and complimentary of the whole tournament experience.

The Golf Channel announcers have also been very complimentary of the tournament officials, the area amenities and the gorgeous island scenery.  It is enjoyable to see our island on TV, receiving outstanding reviews.  And this is only the first of three years for the tournament here on St Simons Island.

Enjoy our beautiful fall weather and the McGladrey Classic Golf Tournament this weekend!
