Junior Golf Scoreboard
Any division in which 5 or more competitors complete at least a 36 hole event.
Opened in August of 1989, the course was designed by renowned architect Joe Lee, considered a master at coaxing brilliant design from the landscape. However, as Lee walked the land in early 1988, we grew concerned that the site might not support the layout he planned. Noticing a small cluster of marsh islands located across a small tidal creek just west of the Plantation's high ground, Lee's skills in creative land use envisioned a bold stroke of genius that would become The King and Prince Golf Course's signature. Today, golfers travel along 800-feet of elevated, marsh-traversing cart bridges to experience play on four spectacular holes gently carved from the marsh islands. While these four signature holes highlight play on the King and Prince Golf Course's back nine, the entire 18-hole, Par 72 course combines for an experience that always finds it on golf's "must-play" lists on the Florida to Myrtle Beach circuit. Approximate Yardages for theThe Golden Isles Junior Challenge are as follows: Boys 10U:4,898: Girls 13U: 5,292; Boys 11-13/Girls 14-18:5,619; Boys 14-15/Boys 16-18: 6,499.
