Travel Thursday: Kiawah Island Resort


Golf is a game that is meant to be played with friends and families around the world, not just in your own backyard. Thanks to our friends at Club Glove, we at SwingxSwing are happy to bring you Travel Thursday, a franchise that will highlight and profile some of the best golf travel destinations in the world.

As far as East Coast golf vacations go, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better place to spend a few days than the Kiawah Island Resort. With its ability to appease even the most demanding vacation standards, Kiawah Island provides fun in the sun for a wide array of travelers, from buddies golf trips to family getaways.

As a golfer, you can’t ask for a much better place to tee it up with the resort’s 90 holes of championship golf. The five courses owned and operated by the resort are headlined by The Ocean Course, a Pete Dye-designed gem that buts up against the Atlantic Ocean and has been home to a Ryder Cup and a PGA Championship. Aside from the Ocean, the resort boasts the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point, the Gary Player-designed Cougar Point, Turtle Point and Oak Point golf courses.

Each course offers a different set of challenges while giving the golfer a wide variety of shots and vistas that will make each day on the course fresh. After a round of golf, the resort offers a plethora of options for post-round fun. 

Kiawah Island offers world-class tennis facilities, a spa and various nature-inspired activities around the beautiful barrier island the resort sits upon as well as a wide array of dining options. The digs at the Kiawah Island Resort are just as nice as you’d expect featuring the gorgeous Sanctuary Hotel, Resort Villas and Premier and Private Homes for rent.
