Ranked "4 Stars" - Golf Digest 2006

Kiawah Island has been ranked:

  • No. 1 U.S. Top 10 "Worlds Best Golf Resorts" by Travel & Leisure Golf magazine, Sept, 2006.
  •  4th in the "Top 100 Golf Communities" by Travel + Leisure Golf magazine, Jan/Feb 2006 issue; 5th in the Jan/Feb 2007 issue.
  • Golfweek's "Best Resort Courses of 2007"
Notes: Oak Point is a Scottish-American design playing to a par of 72 with a championship length of 6759 yards. Wind is a tremendous factor in playing the course due to the openness of the site and proximity to the Kiawah River and the Atlantic Ocean. The course has matured nicely over the years and remains one of the most popular courses in the area.

Renovated in 2004 to eliminate the very difficult par 4 third hole. Lengthened hole number one to a 530 yard par 5 and added a new par 3 ninth hole that plays out toward Haulover Creek by the new clubhouse.
