The Kiawah Island Golf Resort is the “Official Golf & Tennis Resort” on the Island and recognized as an award-winning Best U.S. Golf Resort. Additionally, the location hosted the 2012 PGA Golf Championship.
Kiawah Island has been declared the #1 Island in North America by the Condé Nast Traveler and #1 Resort in the U.S. by Golf World Magazine. The destination’s prestige attributes to its well-suited lavish provisions.
