First time in Kiawah

My husband and I are looking to spend a few days on Kiawah Island on our way home from Hilton Head in May. We love Hilton Head but have always been intrigued by Kiawah. . We Are not looking for high end dinners but often like to eat dinner on or patio with a nice bottle of wine. Any suggestions for some good take out. We often hit Fresh Market in Hilton Head.

Also as a second question any tips on reasonable golf?

Looking at a Seascape Villa with amenity privileges. Any thoughts on location.

Thanks very much

Thanks so much

Your take-out options are limited on Kiawah. You can pick-up at several of the Resort's restaurants (we like Cherrywood Smokehouse at Osprey) and they have pretty darned good food at the East Beach Town Center Food Court.

There are lots of prepared foods at the new Harris Teeter at Freshfields.

There is take-out at Crave, just off island.

Golf, from $$-$$$$:

Cougar Point and Oak Point

Turtle Point and Osprey Point

The Ocean Course

Personally, I'd look for something in Windswept or Mariner's Watch, more centrally located on the island.

Renting a home with Kiawah Island Golf Resort amenities/privileges entitles you discounts "up to 25%" on golf at all five Kiawah resort courses when charged to your amenity card.

Also, if you want to play at least one round of golf per day on Kiawah, check with the resort about " spring villa golf packages" for your dates. Packages can be customized. kiawahresort.com/packages/…villa-golf-package

If you are playing more than one course, the key is to play the lesser priced course first, then you'll get discounts on your additional rounds, just ask (you don't have to be staying with the Resort to do this).

Save the Ocean Course for last!

Freshfields is not on Kiawah, it's two miles from the front gate, with a very nice bike path along the side of the road.

Just rode out there for lunch last week with a"girls" group.
