Located at the crossroads of the Hampton & Frederica Rivers, the scenic drive to the north tip of St. Simons Island allows golfers to begin unwinding long before arrival; and when you enter the Clubhouse, you receive a quality experience that is rarely forgotten. You become part of the Club’s family ~ to relax, play golf and make memories with a caring staff.
Mattox comments “I am very excited to have Robert Long joining our team. He is already a valued addition for the future of the King and Prince Golf Course. St. Simons Island affords him a wonderful place to live and enjoy quality family life while pursuing his chosen career paths”.
Mattox’s impact on the career of others is well deserved as his newly developed lineup move forward together into 2015 and beyond.
