Osprey Point takes the player inland, at least, as inland as one can be on Kiawah Island, snaking through forest and saltwater marshes. Tom Fazio originally designed this course as private, members only course, but after its acquisition by Kiawah Island Golf Resort, this casual, player friendly course is open to the public. Next time you play Osprey Point, be sure to stop by the clubhouse after for a 19th hole libation.
Oak Point is a classic course, calling for precision rather than strength, as the right shot is often better than the longest. Oak Point runs along the Kiawah River and Haulover creek, creating undulating fairways and challenging greens. Renovated in 2015, the course received 4.5 stars from the readers of Golf Digest magazine in their “Best Places to Play” poll.
Cougar Point features dramatic vistas and wide open fairways, making the course more playable for your average golfer. Experienced players will enjoy the course as well, because while the course is forgiving, there is definitely a correct spot to land your drive, as unseen hazards around the long par 4s can be avoided by strategic placement. Hole 17 is said to be one of the prettiest and most challenging holes on the island.
