Grass was still recovering from a disease, so there were a lot of patches and bare spots. I like the layout least of the four courses, but it is still very good. Service and organization were very good, and they moved folks along well for a resort course.

I like this course and will probably play it again, but it is not even close to the standards of the Ocean Course. The tees and greens were good and very playable, but for the price I thought they should have been much better. I like the layout and variety of the holes. A few of the holes along the... More

My game is not really up to the challenge of this course, but I certainly enjoyed playing it. Your clubs are unloaded for you at the bag drop, bottled water is ready for you in a cooler on your cart and the beverage cart comes around regularly. The course is very nice, challenging and attractive throughout, but the are at... More

It is the last day in August and I decided to play golf while my wife was at the beach. I called for a tee time to play alone and got one with no trouble. I played in the afternoon and it was hot. Since I grew up in Charleston, that did not bother me too much. I had not... More

this one more like a muni than cougar or ocean...or even Seabrook Island's two courses.....beachwalkers all over the place, bird watchers walking up the fairway---course is in average condition, the layout is OK...its not a bad place to play, but its nowhere near quiet and peaceful.

I hadn't played Turtle for 5-6 years and I had remembered it not being one of my favorites (Nicholas courses and I haven't always agreed). However, I just played it again and truly had a great experience (maybe it reflects that my score was the best of the week). The grasses used at the various courses on Kiawah can differ... More

They had aerated two weeks prior but still good conditions. The three ocean holes on the back nine are fun but we didn’t find the remainder of the layout as interesting as Cougar Point. Clubhouse was a bit dark. Paid $105/person in the afternoon.

The pulled pork bbq is quite good. We're from Kansas City and thought it might not be up to our standards, and were pleasantly surprised.

While Turtle Point is not the Ocean Course, for a far lesser price you get a good view of the ocean on three of their holes. It's also a bit friendlier and more forgiving to less capable golfers like myself, although there are still plenty of places on the course that challenge. Perhaps one of its greatest assets is that... More
