This resort, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," features four outstanding eighteen hole courses.The Turtle Point Course is the longest of the four Kiwah Island Resort courses and features tree-lined fairways and numerous lagoons coming into play. This course is highlighted by three spectacular oceanside holes. The fairways are narrow, and the small greens are well-bunkered.The signature hole is #15, a 412-yard, par 4, requiring shots up a narrow fairway lined on the left side by the Atlantic Ocean and sand dunes, and a prevailing southeast wind can also create problems.Opened in 1981, Turtle Point has a low profile design that takes advantage of the island's natural contours and dune ridges. The course flows seamlessly through interior forests of hardwoods and palmettos, along backwater lagoons and finally to three spectacular holes along the Atlantic Ocean. Subtle greens demand a keen eye and deft touch. The course has hosted many amateur and professional tournaments including the 1990 PGA Cup Matches. A new grand clubhouse, built in the style of the classic antebellum mansions of the region, will open late-summer of 2001. The head golf professional at Turtle Point is Ronnie Miller. Current green fees are $145 outside and $120 for guests of the resort.Golf Packages are available, and you may make your tee time reservations when making your hotel accommodations. The green fees for each of the four courses are seasonal and subject to change several times throughout the year. Guests may stay in villas overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, lagoons, tennis courts or the fairways. The villas include complete kitchens. There is a 150 room Kiawah Island Inn also available for room accommodations. Amenities and activities include tennis, bike rides, nature tours, kayak tours and 10-mile-long private beach. In West Beach, located by the Kiawah Island Inn, you may dine poolside at the Sundancer Grill, at the formal Atlantic Room or the informal West Beach Café. In East Beach you may dine poolside at the Night Heron Park Grill or The Village Bistro. Osprey Point's Clubhouse offers formal dining while The Ocean Course Grill offers a more relaxed menu (and some of the best Crabcakes and burgers in the Lowcountry). Mingo Point offers Lowcountry barbecues with a pig-pull and a Carolina oyster roast. Dining is along the beautiful Kiawah River to the melodies of the coastal area's finest Bluegrass musicians.
