Kiawah Island Golf Resort: The Ultimate Golfing Destination on the Carolina Coast

Boasting five top-ranked championship golf courses, Kiawah Island Golf Resort is a golf destination that is unmatched.

Here, world-class greens wind through the stunning coastline and varied landscapes to offer unforgettable experiences. Each hole provides its unique playability along with breathtaking views and many spectacular twists and turns. The private sub-tropical island enjoys warm sunshine year-round, making it perfect for golfers in any season. And for those who wish to improve their game, The Golf Learning Center proves to be a renowned and rewarding resource.


Designed by Pete Dye, the legendary Ocean Course has hosted the PGA Championships twice, in 2012 and 2021, and the Ryder Cup in 1991. The course is widely considered the most challenging at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, with the largest selection of seaside holes in the Northern Hemisphere, including ten along the Atlantic that offer unobstructed views. As a result, this golf course experiences more wind than any other in the world, outside of Ireland, requiring players to adjust their clubs by up to eight different levels, according to many golfers who have played here.


Jack Nicklaus designed the intricate and challenging Turtle Point, which features narrow fairways and small greens. This tactical course is a favorite among many of the accomplished players who come to Kiawah Island Golf Resort and is a testament to Nicklaus’ firm design philosophy, which emphasizes “making the player use his mind ahead of his muscles.”


Osprey Point, designed by Tom Fazio, is celebrated for its pristine landscape, including magnificent maritime forests and saltwater marshes. The meticulously maintained fairways and smooth greens make every round at Osprey Point feel like a nature walk in paradise. It has a nearly spotless 4.5-star rating in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” reader poll and ranks #11 on the magazine’s list of America’s top 50 courses for female golfers.


Designed by Gary Player, Cougar Point is a par-72 course that offers a unique challenge to discerning golfers with its fascinating Lowcountry golf. The course offers sweeping waterfront vistas and a series of holes that run along the Kiawah River, making it known for its beautiful play and picture-perfect scenery.


Oak Point at Kiawah Island Golf Resort has undulating fairways and beautiful greens that are well-contoured and maintained by experts. Clyde Johnston redesigned the course, which he designed to favor strategic thinking over raw power, and it is known as a true shotmaker’s course, providing players with a round that is equally strategic and fulfilling.

Kiawah Island Golf Resort – Shoreline

In addition to panoramic golf courses, Kiawah Island Golf Resort has ten miles of the world’s best coastline year after year, as well as many exciting amenities. An award-winning tennis center and spa offer invigorating touches, while an array of water sports, such as stand-up paddleboarding and sunset cruises, offer unforgettable island adventures. And for discerning diners, The Kiawah Dining Collection features fifteen restaurants serving a diverse range of menus that maintain the integrity and taste of authentic Southern cuisine.
