Top 50 course, the bar and restaurant is also a must do. It is pricey, but it's also a PGA and Ryder Cup course. Play it, Osprey, Turtle Point, and Briar's Creek.

Morning tee time with my son. Caddies made the round very enjoyable. The course is very challenging and very enjoyable. 18 is a. Ice challenging finish taking 3 shots with a head wind. Definitely recommend doing it once even if it is a bit pricey.

It was my first visit to Kiawah Island and I had heard so much about the Ocean Course that notwithstanding its expensive cost, it was a must play, at least once. Since it is so close to the Ocean with panoramic views of the water,...More

One of the great public courses in the US - equal to Bandon courses. It's pricey but worth it. Use a caddy and walk the course - not a difficult walk if it's not too hot. Ocean Views- particularly on the back nice are fantastic....More

I do not remember exactly but I believe that it was in the $200 range plus caddy fee. It is a great course and if you have the opportunity, play it. There are packages as well and four other courses on Kiawah.
