Over the past 20 years, the resort has made a concerted effort to upgrade the facilities on the resort to make Kiawah the finest golf destination in the U.S. This includes new clubhouses at Osprey Point, Turtle Point and The Ocean Course as well as course renovations at The Ocean Course, Turtle Point and, last year at Osprey Point. This year, Oak Point undergos major renovations.
Brandon Hartzell is sworn to secrecy. The Ocean Course caddie competed in The Golf Channel’s “ Big Break ” reality show in September, but can’t reveal the results.
Hartzell, a 27-year-old caddie at Kiawah Island’s most famous golf course, was one of 12 golfers competing in the latest version of the reality program — this one titled The Palm Beaches — that begins airing at 9 p.m. Monday. At stake is $120,000 in cash and prizes, along with an exemption into the PGA Tour’s 2015 Barbasol Championship.
We’ve been getting nearly universal rave-reviews on the recently-renovated Osprey Point Golf Course. On the course, although there were not wholesale changes to the layout, we did make subtle revisions that improve Osprey Point aesthetically, as well as strategically. With a bunker added here and removed there, and improved contours to a fairway or two, we anticipate players experiencing a much more enjoyable round of golf than they did before.
Pete Dye has made a life out of playing in the dirt. The 88-year old golf-course architect and his partner in life and design Alice Dye, 87, charmed an audience of Golfweek course raters, friends, colleagues and former field staff at a three-day architecture summit that ended Nov. 11 at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
The famed Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort is renowned worldwide for both its beauty and its challenge. It hosted the 1991 “War by the Shore” Ryder Cup where the U.S. team pulled out a one-point victory on the final hole of the final match, essentially elevating this biennial event to one of golf’s most watched television events. In 2012, it hosted the PGA Championship where Rory McIlroy virtually lapped the field with a run-away eight-stroke victory. But, for all its beauty and bravado, for many it is the clubhouse’s 19th hole, The Ryder Cup Bar, which is their favorite.
The joy of a Kiawah golf vacation can sometimes be diminished by the annoying mission of transporting your clubs from your home to Kiawah. We’ve always found carrying clubs on a flight is a risky ordeal, but not nearly as dangerous and nerve-racking as shipping them through the mail can be. To help you out, the resort has partnered with Ship Sticks.
After nearly five months or renovations, Osprey Point reopens for play today, Wednesday, October 1st. Governor’s Club Members, Property Owners and Resort Guests alike have all been anxiously awaiting this day and it is nearly upon us.
We want to thank each of you for your patience and understanding as we labored through this exciting project. The maintenance and construction crews have worked relentlessly throughout the hot and humid summer, laboring over every detail to get each hole just right. Here is a recap of their tremendous accomplishments:
Re-grassed all tees, fairways and greens with Paspalum Platinum, the same grass used on the Ocean Course
Returned all greens to their original size and contours
Built an entirely new practice putting green, nearly three times the size of the old practice green
Laser leveled all tee boxes, including the driving range tee
Improved drainage and re-contoured fairways on holes 2 & 18, as well as other areas throughout the course
Rebuilt all bunkers, adding a new type of sand
Built ten new forward tee boxes
Re-decked two bridges
As players arrive to Osprey Point, they will be greeted by refreshed landscape around the Club House, new Fall merchandise in the Pro Shop and new Club Car golf cars in the staging area. On the course, although there were not wholesale changes to the lay-out, we did make subtle changes that should improve Osprey Point aesthetically as well as strategically. With a bunker added here, removed there, and improved contours to a fairway or two, we anticipate players experiencing a much more enjoyable round of golf than they did before.
Once again, we thank you, and encourage you to come play and experience for yourself the new and improved Osprey Point Golf Club. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and impressions of the renovation.
Here are a few of the changes you notice in addition to the improved playing conditions:
