Attention Georgia and Florida Football Fans!

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Rooms are still available at The King and Prince for the Florida vs. Georgia Football Classic

St. Simons Island will be a sea of red and black on Halloween Weekend as Bulldog fans gather for the highly anticipated Georgia vs. Florida Football Classic at the Jacksonville, Alltel Stadium on October 31st. But the action won’t be limited to the sidelines on game day. Rightfully nicknamed “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party,” the weekend is also filled with plenty of live entertainment, contests and festivities that anyone, from crazed football fans to families, can enjoy!  For a listing of the many events surrounding the Georgia Vs. Florida Weekend, visit here.

If you are looking for a place to stay during the weekend of the Football Classic, there are still a few rooms available at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort. Also, The King and Prince will be providing a convenient shuttle service to take guests to and from the football game complete with a box lunch and mixers. The bus is available to anyone who would like to ride down with us – both guests and non-guests. To get the party started early, feel free to BYOB for the bus ride down to the stadium! For more information about hotel reservations or reserving a seat on the bus, please visit or call 1-800-342-0212.

In 2010 the popular weekend will be held October 28th, 29th & 30th. We will start taking hotel reservations at 9am on November 1st, 2009 for the 2010 game. Because we sell out several months in advance, we recommend that you reserve your room as soon as possible to guarantee you have a place to stay next year for the festivities. What could be better than staying at one of Georgia’s favorite oceanfront resorts and partying on the beach with thousands of other Bulldogs fans just steps away from your hotel room?

After six months of restoration and prosperity of new growth grass, the time has finally come here on St. Simons Island. On October 10th, the King and Prince Golf Course is hosting its Club Members Re-Opening Ceremony, with the public play beginning October 11th.

Golfers will see many improvements on the course such as MiniVerde™, ultra dwarf Bermuda grass, with 60″ green collars planted with Tifsport Bermuda on all 18 greens.  Each of the 18 fairways will have a new hybrid, Celebration Bermuda grass for ultimate performance. In addition, a new practice facility will open which includes a 6,500 sq ft MiniVerde putting green, 3,000 sq ft MiniVerde chipping green, and five target greens.

Owned and operated by The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, the course is renowned for its ancient forests, vast salt marshes, and dramatic island holes. The course houses a comfortable clubhouse overlooking the large lake that adds to the challenge of the course’s 9th hole. With its warm and welcoming clubhouse and exceptional staff, it is no wonder members are anxious for the return of the King and Prince Golf Course.
