GOLF PACKAGES AT KIAWAH ISLAND RESORTS
Kiawah Island Golf Resort is one of the premier golf destinations on the East Coast. The Resort is located about 25 miles from Charleston, South Carolina. It features five award-winning golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Clyde Johnston, and Pete Dye.
The five Kiawah Island Golf Resort courses are:
The Ocean Course: Designed by Pete Dye from a ribbon of pristine sand dunes stretching nearly three miles along the Atlantic Ocean at the extreme eastern end of this barrier island, The Ocean Course is a par 72 layout reminiscent of the great seaside links of England and Scotland. Yardage can vary as much as the wind that constantly sweeps across the links. Played from the extreme back tee on every hole, the course measures a mind-numbing 7,873 yards, but that was never the intent of the designer. Instead, Dye created a variety of tees so that great holes would remain great holes, regardless of wind shifts. The Ocean Course hosted the 2012 PGA Championship won by Rory McIlroy, and the dramatic 1991 Ryder Cup known as the “War by the Shore.”
Turtle Point: Designed by Jack Nicklaus, Turtle Point is a low-profile design in which fairways and green settings are blended into the existing landscape without artificial mounding and radical features. At 6,914 yards from the back markers with five par fours stretching 420 yards or longer, the course offers a tough test for all golfers. And the 412-yard 15th, the middle hole of a spectacular, three-hole oceanfront trio, with its tiny green tucked into the dunes, can be the hardest hole on the course, depending on the wind off the Atlantic.
Osprey Point: Osprey Point is a classic Tom Fazio layout. It’s also a classic example of why Fazio enjoys such a lofty professional perch. At Osprey Point, Fazio had a superb natural canvas on which to create a masterpiece in playability and variety. The setting for the course features four large natural lakes, fingers of saltwater marsh, and dense maritime forests of century-old live oaks, pines, palmetto palms, and magnolias. Into that backdrop, Fazio blended a par-72 layout that stretches 6,871 yards from the back tees.
Cougar Point: Designed by Gary Player, Cougar Point is a par-72 layout stretching 6,861 yards from the back tees. Cougar Point is known for its three-hole stretch midway through the front nine where holes border the tidal marsh and offer panoramic views of the Kiawah River and miles of adjacent marsh. From these holes, it is not uncommon to see countless wading birds among the acres of needle rush and spartina grass or pelicans and osprey soaring over the river and creeks eyeing a possible meal. Golfers can easily find their attention diverted from birdies to birds. Starting with the par five 15th hole, Cougar Point offers four magnificent finishing holes culminating with the dramatic par four 18th hole.
Oak Point: Tucked away in the center of Hope Plantation, just outside of the Kiawah gate, lies Oak Point. This Clyde Johnston jewel, most frequently called a Scottish-American style course, is a par 72 layout. It is challenging to the novice golfer and the experienced professional while providing a fair test. Bordering the historic Haulover Creek and the Kiawah River, Oak Point was built on the grounds of an old indigo and cotton plantation. Finishing along the panoramic Kiawah River, golfers will be delighted at another example of quality golf that Kiawah Island has to offer.
Lodging: Stay in a three-bedroom scenic view villa at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
