“Kiawah Island offers golfers the opportunity to play five championship courses, each one a unique design from five of the world’s leading architects,” said Brian Gerard, director of golf, Kiawah Island Golf Resort. “Among them is Pete Dye’s internationally renowned masterpiece, The Ocean Course, which features the most seaside holes in North America. The venue for this year’s PGA Championship (May 17–23), it also hosted the famous 1991 Ryder Cup and the 2012 PGA Championship. The resort offers an abundance of diverse accommodations (including The Sanctuary, a Forbes 5-Star beachfront hotel), 10 miles of beach, more than a dozen restaurants and an array of other recreational programs, all of which make Kiawah Island Golf Resort a unique golf destination.”

Life moves at a leisurely pace on Kiawah, a balmy Lowcountry barrier island. It would be a travesty to play the resort’s golf courses as a marathon. Instead, treat the experience like a five-course dinner, savoring the nuances of each one before moving on to the next.
