THE OCEAN COURSE
The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort hosted the 2007 Senior PGA and the 2012 PGA Championships. It will also host the 2021 PGA. The Ocean Course is only the fourth course to have hosted each of the PGA of America’s major championships.
Located on the eastern-most end of Kiawah Island, The Ocean Course has more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere, 10 right along the Atlantic with the other 8 running parallel to those. Although it was originally designed to sit behind the dunes, Dye’s wife, Alice, suggested raising the entire course to allow players unobstructed views of Kiawah’s Atlantic coastline from every hole. This improved view, however, made the course substantially more demanding as it also exposed it to the area’s brisk sea breezes.
Golf Digest named The Ocean Course “#3 Public Golf Course in U.S.”, #20 among “America’s Greatest Courses” and “America’s Toughest Resort Course.” It is one of only 17 “5-star” courses in North America in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” reader’s poll.
GOLF Magazine has rated it #4 in its “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list. The Ocean Course has achieved the designation as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” by the Audubon Sanctuary System, and has recently been named “Golf Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owners Association.
OSPREY POINT GOLF CLUB
Making full use of Kiawah’s maritime forests, lagoons and saltwater marshes, Osprey Point is one of the most popular courses with resort guests. The golf course was totally renovated in 2014 under the direction of course architect Tom Fazio, and enjoys great course conditions today.
Osprey Point was originally designed and built as a private club with restricted memberships. However, since Osprey Point is now part of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, all golfers can now enjoy this beautiful Lowcountry gem. Not only is Osprey Point a world-class layout, its elegant clubhouse is available for guest’s to enjoy as well, making that after round cocktail just a step away from the 18th green.
COUGAR POINT GOLF CLUB
18 holes, 72 par, 6,814/6,514 yards
Cougar Point re-opened in October 2017 following 10 months of renovations and upgrades. The renovations feature new grasses on all tees, greens and fairways, rebuilding all bunkers, rebuilding all bridges and bulkheads, and updating the irrigation system. Cougar Point worked closely with course designer Gary Player to ensure the original layout stayed true to his great design.
You can enjoy one of the most dramatic vistas on the island as you play Cougar Point’s front nine, which runs right along the Kiawah River. Cougar Point was recently rated “Golf Course of The Year”, by the South Carolina Golf Course Owners Association.
TURTLE POINT GOLF CLUB
Rated 48th on Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses, this Jack Nicklaus design is a low-profile golf course that delivers a high caliber golfing experience. Players from the Carolina Amateur, the Carolina PGA, the South Carolina Amateur and the 1990 PGA Cup Matches will all agree that the Turtle Point Golf Course is a true test of strategy and accuracy.
Like many of Nicklaus’s early courses, the greens at Turtle Point are relatively small. The course calls for players to shape their shots both left-to-right and right-to-left. You’ll need to be proficient with every club in your bag and won’t necessarily hit a driver on every hole. And true to Jack’s playing philosophy, Turtle Point plays best hitting to specific landing areas to get the best angles into the greens.
OAK POINT GOLF CLUB
Clyde Johnston, a noted Southeastern golf course architect, designed Oak Point on the grounds of a former cotton and indigo plantation. With its close proximity to the Kiawah River and the Haulover Creek, Johnston was able to mold the rolling landscape into an outstanding layout. With undulating fairways, challenging greens and winds off of the Atlantic Ocean, Oak Point is a great addition to Kiawah Island Resort.
THE VILLAS AT KIAWAH ISLAND RESORT
Many of the villas have oceanfront views while most others have woodland settings. All villa's nightly rates include all fees and taxes. There are no hidden charges.
Nestled within private enclaves and communities, almost all villas enjoy the best of both worlds – close proximity to all of Kiawah’s amenities, including pools, golf and tennis, and the peaceful reserve of this coastal getaway.
You can have as many features as you like or need - fully-equipped kitchens, dining room, living room, two, three and four bedrooms and private baths. Living rooms feature comfortable seating, flat screen TV's with a generous cable package and DVD players.
Many of the East Beach Villas are adjacent to or near the 21-acre Night Heron Park complex, the hub for concerts, special functions, sporting events and nature center. The park features basketball and volleyball courts, soccer fields, playgrounds, nature center, pool complex, and fitness trail complete with cardio and strength training stations. The park, villas and all resort venues are accessible by 30 miles of paved bike trails or by car. The 10-mile beach is also excellent for bike rides along the surf.
