While Kiawah has long been known both locally and nationally, it achieved world fame in 1991 when the Ocean Course staged the Ryder Cup. The matches, dubbed ‘The War on the Shore’, and the eternally agonising image of Bernhard Langer on the final green, have immortalized Kiawah Island, and since that moment it has been a serious destination for golfing visitors to South Carolina.
Five top courses, magical scenery and first class leisure and recreation facilities underline the appeal. Added to this is historic Charleston, which is an essential visit thanks to the remarkable colonial architecture, and its famously lively after dark atmosphere.
With all this on the doorstep of one of the world’s most renowned resorts, why not make Kiawah Island the choice for your next American golf escape?
