The Kiawah Island Lifestyle

The Kiawah Island lifestyle is an exceptional way of life that has evolved with care and guidance since the Island first began development in 1976.

Residents enjoy 10 miles of flawless Atlantic Beach, five outstanding championship golf courses, two tennis centers, the private Kiawah Island Club, plus a full range of outdoor activities. Also, with historic Charleston just a short drive away, the cultural and recreational options are endless.

Golf
Amid Kiawah Island's uncommon beauty, The Kiawah Island Club is an exclusive private membership club for property owners with an unmatched collection of amenities and distinctive venues. Its ‘crown jewels’ are its two championship golf courses, offering Kiawah's only private golf experience.

The River Course, which was designed by one of today’s premier golf architects, Tom Fazio, weaves through maritime forest and along the oyster banks and marsh grasses of the Kiawah River and Bass Pond.

Kiawah Island, SC
The Ocean Course is one of Kiawah Island's seven courses.

The Club's second course, Cassique is the first solo-designed course in America by five-time British Open winner Tom Watson. Named for a Kiawah Native American chief during the 17th century, the course is positioned along the Kiawah River where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. Cassique represents an exceptional marriage between its combination of the characteristics of a classic British Island links course with an extraordinary Carolina Lowcountry setting.

Kiawah is also home to five more award-winning golf courses including The Ocean Course, which will play host to the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah. Known to be one of the toughest courses in North America, the Ocean Course is located on the eastern-most end of Kiawah, and boasts more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere.

Environmental Development Philosophy
Kiawah’s phenomenal success can, to a large extent, be attributed to the developers' extraordinary commitment to long-range planning. From the beginning, the development philosophy included a deep devotion to letting nature have its way.

Before development began in that late 1970s, planners were sent in to analyze and document the physical characteristics of the Island. A master plan was created that balanced the social, recreational, and commercial needs of the Island’s residents, while also maintaining the Island’s natural habitat and beauty.
