When we checked into the resort they mentioned something called Foot Golf. As non-golfers we were interested in learning more. We arrived the next morning (didn't need a reservation) and did 9 holes of Foot Golf. It was SO much fun. We rented two golf carts and that was nice not having to walk the whole course. Regular golfers were... More

While staying on St. Simons Island for a March vacation, we planned to check out the local courses. Sea Palms was the first course we played, and we will definitely go back for another round. The staff is friendly, the course is well maintained, challenging in spots, but pretty much right there in front of you, with minimal trickery. I'm... More

Wonderful experience. Came here late in the evening after a terrible experience at the Westin. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cost was very reasonable and the room was great. Stayed in a 1 bedroom king suite and it was great.

Golfed 2 days over the Christmas holiday . The first round was great however the second day there were 2 groups ahead of us that had the entire course backed up. While I appreciate this is a resort course and vacations bring out the inexperienced golfers who insist on hitting off the back tees, it is not fair to those... More

It's a real shame that ownership decided not to fix the driving range after Hurricane Mathew. I think they severely underestimate the importance of a driving range to Members and the casual golfer. I will be moving my weekend rounds to King and Prince until they decide to wake up and reopen the driving range!!

Was here for a conference. The plusses: The beds were new, the room was clean, there is a new fitness center with good equipment, great pool area. Almost everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. We went to the pro-shop to inquire about renting bikes while we were there. We were taken to the back area and shown what our options... More

We really enjoyed our play here on this course. There were no crowds, and the pace was excellent. With the exception of the 1st hole ( wet ) the fairways were superb. A few of the greens were spotty, but the pin placements negated the worst of these. The course is truly delightful.

Still a challenging golf course with a nice layout. Headed off in a twosome and played the front 9 very quickly. Caught up with traffic on the back and frankly after 16, we bolted for the parking lot. Not a thing to eat or drink the entire time. Had no idea there was no beverage/snack cart service, and it was... More
