Golfers have known Kiawah for decades as home of the 1991 heart-stopping Ryder Cup, several World Cup matches and most recently, the 2012 PGA Championship. Kiawah's 7 golf courses (2 being private) were built by a unique fraternity of the sports leading designers, and these legendary challenges are met with appreciation of the sport on a daily basis. 

Every Kiawah golf challenge is unique as each melds the lush, Lowcountry landscape with impeccable course maintenance, ensuring memorable views and rewarding play every time.

Named the No. 1 Golf Resort in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure Golf, Kiawah Island is also home to the Golf Academy which offers cutting-edge golf instruction and fitness training led by a top 100 golf instructor.
