Where To Golf Next

Kiawah Island Golf Resort -- Where Serious Golfers Take Family Vacations

Nestled into a 10-mile long unspoiled barrier island off the coast of historic Charleston, SC, the resort delivers serious fun for the entire family


If you’ve always wanted to introduce your kids to the game that’s close to your heart, Kiawah Island Golf Resort is the perfect place to do it. Nestled into a 10-mile-long unspoiled barrier island off the coast of historic Charleston, South Carolina, the resort delivers serious fun for the entire family.

Courses To Write Home About

The biggest draw has to be the resort’s five championship golf courses, all fully renovated and kept in pristine condition. Designed by Pete Dye, the iconic Ocean Course—home to the 2021 PGA Championship—showcases views of the Atlantic Ocean from every hole (and the challenging winds that come with that stunning setting). Rounding out the roster are the Jack Nicklaus–designed Turtle Point, Tom Fazio–designed Osprey Point, Gary Player–designed Cougar Point and Clyde Johnston–designed Oak Point.

Play Together as a Family

Throughout the summer season, Kiawah Island Golf Resort encourages quality time on the greens. The Family Tee Program—available during select tee times on Turtle Point, Osprey Point, Cougar Point and Oak Point—allows children under 17 to play for free with a paying adult and has everyone in the party playing from specially marked family tees. It’s the ideal opportunity for mom and dad to share their favorite pointers—and their love for the game—with their kids.

Sharpen Your Skills 

Named in honor of the man who served as the resort’s Director of Golf for 26 years, the state-of-the-art Tommy Cuthbert Golf Learning Center offers instruction from PGA-certified pros for players of all ages and skill levels in group or private lessons. For a more comprehensive experience, you can even choose from two-, three- or four-day golf schools that allow you to design your own curriculum. This combination of expert instruction, flexible programming and technological innovations have earned the Tommy Cuthbert Golf Learning Center the Golf Digest 2018 Editor’s Choice Award for Best Golf Academy in the Southeast.

Experience What’s New 

For the ultimate 19th hole experience, the all-new Cougar Point Clubhouse—designed by world-renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects—is slated to open its doors this month. Sitting on a prominent knoll overlooking the 18th fairway, the clubhouse is anchored by a 40-seat bar and a 125-seat sports tavern. The Players’ Pub menu will showcase upscale pub fare marked by a recognizable Southern infusion that focuses on the finest local and regional ingredients. The Players’ Pub will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, making it an ideal gathering place for pre- or post-round dining and relaxation. 

Get the Full Resort Experience

Beyond the fairways, guests that book their accommodations through Kiawah Island Golf Resort gain access to a package of exclusive benefits and privileges that no other rental company on the island can offer. This includes full access to resort pool complexes, golf savings and preferred tee times, tennis discounts and preferred reservations, discounted nature and recreational programs (including its always-popular kids’ camps), complimentary on-island transportation and much more.
