Turtle Point Golf Course 

After a nine-month renovation, the new and improved Turtle Point Golf Course reopened October 1, 2016 to rave reviews from members and guests. Late in 2015, Jack Nicklaus, along with the members of his architectural team, surveyed the course and made recommendations for the improvements. Renovations included refurbishing green complexes, re-grassing the greens, tees and fairways with Paspalum (the same salt-tolerant strain of grass that is on The Ocean Course, Osprey Point and Oak Point), rebuilding all bunkers, laser leveling all tee boxes, including the range and reestablish irrigation throughout the course.

Osprey Point Golf Course

Making full use of Kiawah’s maritime forests, lagoons and saltwater marshes, Osprey Point is one of the most popular courses with resort guests. Totally renovated in 2014 under the direction of course architect Tom Fazio, Osprey Point 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. Generally, courses of the caliber of Osprey Point are in private club settings with restricted memberships and high membership fees. In fact, its architect, Tom Fazio, originally developed it as a members’ only type course. However, since Osprey Point is now part of Kiawah Island Golf Resort, anyone can enjoy this beautiful Lowcountry gem. Not only is Osprey Point a world-class layout, its elegant clubhouse is available for guest’s use. A favorite for after-round libations, dining, wedding receptions and special event functions.

Oak Point Golf Course 

Completely renovated in 2015, the new and improved Oak Point 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.

Cougar Point Golf Course 

Cougar Point re-opened with rave reviews on October 1 of 2017 following an exciting 10-month renovation. The renovation featured planting Paspalum on all tees, fairways and greens, rebuilding all bunkers, rebuilding all bridges and bulkheads, and updating the irrigation system. Cougar Point’s team worked closely with Gary Player Design to ensure the visual impact and playability of the renovation. Regardless of whether Cougar Point was your favorite course on the island or you’ve never played, the newly renovated golf course is something all golfers should be sure to experience on their next trip to Kiawah!
