Kiawah Turtle Point

Play golf on the impressive Turtle Point at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. One of five amazing courses within the resort in Charleston, South Carolina.

Late in 2015, Jack Nicklaus and his team  surveyed the course and made recommendations for improvements.
So, after nine months of renovation on bunkers teees. gras etc, the new and improved course reopened  on October 1st 2016 to rave reviews from virtually everyone that has played it

With narrow fairway corridors, small greens, strategically placed water hazards and plenty of out-of-bounds, Turtle Point calls for great accuracy and intelligent strategies. Players not driving the ball well will struggle for par. Since it is one of the longest courses on the island, proficiency with fairway woods and long irons is a must. 

The course calls for players to be able to shape their shots both left-to-right and right-to-left as well as being  proficient with pretty much every club in the bag. Players won`t necessarily hit a driver on every hole.

Turtle Point plays best hitting to specific landing areas to get the best angles into the greens.

As with all of the courses on Kiawah Island,Turtle Point experiences a lot of wind which blows in different directions throughout the day. Trees protect many areas at Turtle Point so players won’t always gauge how the wind may or may not affect their shots. 

This exciting course was selected to hold many important championships including the Carolinas’ Amateur, the Carolinas’ PGA, the South Carolina Amateur and the 1990 PGA Cup Matches, the club professionals version of the Ryder Cup.

Kiawah Osprey Point

Osprey Point makes full use of Kiawah`s maritime forests, lagoons and saltwater marshes and is one of the most popular courses with resort guests.

The course was totally renovated in 2014 under the direction of course architect Tom Fazio and Osprey Point now features tees, greens and fairways grassed with Paspalum. 

Fazio blended a par-72 layout that takes advantage of its setting. The course offers a wide variety of holes, each presenting its own unique challenges and beauty, which are bound to produce an enjoyable round. Each hole is unique and memorable. There are four challenging par-3s, four extremely distinctive par-5s and ten outstanding par-4s ranging in length from 340 yards to 461 yards from the championship tees.
 
Since Fazio’s design was for a member’s only type of course, Osprey Point is very playable for the average golfer. 
It features generous landing areas and few forced carries. From the proper tees, the course poses appropriate challenges to the better golfers and fairness to the high-handicapper, senior golfers and junior golfers.
For the better player, the course is very challenging with plenty of hazards to avoid, numerous risk/reward options and doglegs that go both left to right and right to left, requiring a premium on both accuracy and finesse.
 

Kiawah Oak Point

Kiawah Oak Point Course was completely renovated in 2015 and now offers guests the greatly enhanced playing surface of Paspalum. Renovations also significantly added to the strategic challenges of the design elevating Oak Point to the championship level of the resort`s other courses.

More than any other course on the resort, Oak Point has gone through dramatic changes over the last couple of years, greatly enhancing both the quality of golf and the overall guest experience.
 
With its close proximity to the Kiawah River and the Haulover Creek, with its surrounding maritime forest, Clyde Johnston was able to mold the rolling landscape into a first-class layout. Undulating fairways and challenging greens are some of the unique features of Oak Point.
The course is a bit of a throwback to the classic courses of the 1920s where the ability to place the ball in a certain portion of the fairway or a certain spot of the green was more important than power. 
 
Throw in the beautiful vistas and it is easy to understand why Oak Point recently received a near-perfect 4½ stars from the readers of Golf Digest magazine in their biennial “Best Places to Play” poll where it was rated one of the best values in South Carolina.
