The River Course provides a challenging and inspiring 7,039-yard test. Eight holes play along the Kiawah River and Bass Pond, with the other fairways and greens along marsh savannas, ponds, and oak-filled maritime forests.
The River Course site, which extends a mile or so along the Kiawah River, was the location of the first English settlement on the Island in the 18th century. In 1999, it was fully certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
The course hosted the Kiawah Children’s Hospital Classic in 2000 and 2001. Since opening, the course has garnered numerous accolades including that of Golf Digest’s 1996 top five new private courses in the nation. It was also listed on “America’s Best Top 100 Residential Courses” by Golfweek magazine in 2012.
