At home at the prestigious Kiawah Island Golf Resort just a half hour's drive from downtown Charleston, the Turtle Point Course is a beautiful seaside course sure to entertain and challenge any golfer. This par-72 course was designed by Jack Nicklaus in his own classic style, and has hosted the 1990 PGA Cup Matches, the Carolinas' PGA, the Carolinas' Amateur, and the South Carolina Amateur tournaments. All of the courses on Kiawah Island guarantee influential wind variability, though Turtle Point does provide some tree shelter across the course, and is more protected than its neighboring Ocean Course, though winds do still play heavily into Turtle Point golfer strategy. Expect tricky water features and smaller greens on this course, which is one of the longest on the island.
- Golf Courses: "Turtle Point is often considered one of the most challenging courses on the island due to its traditional Jack Nicklaus design."
- Best for Golf Courses Because: A quieter, calmer sister course to The Ocean Course, Turtle Point offers a tad less wind but very nearly as challenging a round of golf.
