Kiawah Island Golf Resort – Turtle Point Course

The biggest names in golf have made their mark on the championship courses of Kiawah Island Golf Resort, both as designers and pro players putting their skills to the ultimate test during the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship and other top-level tournaments. Year-after-year, the most respected experts place Kiawah Island Resort’s golf courses at the top of every list. Shouldn’t they top your list, too?

After a comprehensive nine-month renovation led by Jack Nicklaus and members of his architectural team, Turtle Point reopened in late 2016 to rave player reviews. Sweeping improvements included regrassing with Paspalum, rebuilding of all bunkers, laser-leveling all tee boxes and reestablishing irrigation throughout the course.

Turtle Point exemplifies Jack Nicklaus’ firm design philosophy to “make the player use his mind ahead of his muscles—to control his emotions sufficiently to really think through his options before drawing a club from the bag.”

Course Stats: 18 holes, 6911 yards, par: 72
