Chuck Moore, Superintendent at the award-winning King and Prince Golf Course, St. Simons Island, Georgia for 23 years ~ has received the coveted award of ‘Superintendent of the Year’ 2017 from Georgia GCSA (Georgia Golf Course Superintendents Association ~ founded in 1949).

A graduate of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia, Moore received his turf degree while completing a fall internship at the King and Prince Golf Course, and then graduated with honors. His long career that began as part of the golf maintenance crew in 1995 brought him full circle back to St. Simons Island as head superintendent in 2000 where he has excelled throughout numerous renovations and golf course transformations.

In an organization with approximately 400 golf courses throughout Georgia, the Georgia Golf Course Superintendents Association selected Chuck Moore for this year’s honorarium. ‘The Georgia GCSA award is given to an individual who has expressed outstanding dedication, care and commitment to the Georgia Golf Course Superintendent Association, the golf industry at large and his/her community.’ The association has 735 individual members, one of the largest chapters within the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

Chuck states “It’s a great honor for me to be recognized by my peers in the business. It was a total surprise and really gives me satisfaction to know that we, my crew of six, a mechanic and assistant…WE must be doing something right at our Club. I’m just so proud!”

Chuck and his team take meticulous care of 90 acres of golf course land located at the north end of St. Simons Island. Chuck’s responsibilities include everything outside of the clubhouse: grasses, bunkers, tee markers, lake banks, trees, woods, fairways, greens, practice facility, iconic marsh island holes and overall property maintenance.

According to Rick Mattox, General Manager and Director of Golf at The King and Prince Golf Course since 1990, “Chuck is the finest man I have known in my golf career. Receiving this lifetime honor and being recognized by his peers that very few people get to experience, he wears the banner of his association with great pride along with his deep love of his family. We are all honored to know and work with Chuck”.

    The thrill of a freshly mowed fairway is a treat for every golfer .We are blessed to call the 17th fairway at the King and Prince course our back yard.It is tree lined as are all of our holes with magnificent oak and pine forests. We have had two hurricanes and a recent ice storm. Following each storm the course was open and playable before we could get the streets and yard cleared.The quality of staff and their dedication points to the outstanding leadership Chuck Moore gives.We are delighted to congratulate him on this prestigious honor and to be members at this beautiful setting.

  2. Oh Edna, we just cannot wait to share this message with Chuck and the rest of the team at the golf course. We’re pretty sure your comments have just made their day! We hope you and your family had a lovely Easter. :)
