  About the course 

This resort, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," features four outstanding eighteen hole courses.

The Cougar Point Course is short and has small greens. This course plays through the western part of the island and meanders through the marshlands. The narrow fairways demand accurate shot placements, and the small greens are undulating. There are water hazards that come into play on thirteen holes. There is a halfway house located on hole #10.

Cougar Point is a great addition to Kiawah’s collection of golf. Built in 1997 on the site of the former Marsh Point course, many Resort guests proclaimed Cougar Point their favorite course on the island. Designed by Gary Player, the par-72 layout features holes playing directly along broad expanses of tidal marsh, offering panoramic views of the Kiawah River and acres of needlerush and spartina grass.

Cougar Point is designed to championship standards that will challenge the scratch player while providing an enjoyable round for all 18 holes. The head golf professional at Cougar Point is Ric Fergesun. Green fees vary from season to season. Preferred rates available to guests of the resort.

Golf Packages are available, and you may make your tee time reservations when making your hotel accommodations. The green fees for each of the four courses are seasonal and subject to change several times throughout the year. Guests may stay in villas overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, lagoons, tennis courts or the fairways. The villas include complete kitchens. There is a 150 room Kiawah Island Inn also available for room accommodations. Amenities and activities include tennis, bike rides, nature tours, kayak tours and 10-mile-long private beach. In West Beach, located by the Kiawah Island Inn, you may dine poolside at the Sundancer Grill, at the formal Atlantic Room or the informal West Beach Café. In East Beach you may dine poolside at the Night Heron Park Grill or The Village Bistro. Osprey Point’s Clubhouse offers formal dining while The Ocean Course Grill offers a more relaxed menu (and some of the best Crabcakes and burgers in the Lowcountry). Mingo Point offers Lowcountry barbecues with a pig-pull and a Carolina oyster roast. Dining is along the beautiful Kiawah River to the melodies of the coastal area’s finest Bluegrass musicians. For more information or reservations call (800) 654-2924 or (843) 768-2121.
