Kiawah Island has been ranked:
|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.
