Well it’s been a few weeks since our last update. Here’s our early june Osprey Point update:
Rest assured the construction crew has been very busy since our last update. At this point the crew is putting the final touches on the greens before receiving sprigs late next week. All 18 greens have been floated-out, the final shaping of contours. This process ensures the greens mix is distributed consistently and ensures proper surface drainage so that water is not left standing on any part of the green. In simple terms, this returns the greens back to their original contours and shapes.
While many vacation destinations offer special “family” deals for Father’s Day, Kiawah offers its Family Tee program all summer long.
Well the crew has been very busy. Here’s our latest Osprey Point renovation update. The new putting green has been built and awaits fumigation and final shaping, along with the 18 greens on the course. By next week all of the greens should be getting their final shaping, known as “floating out.” The plan is to sprig the greens with the Paspalum in the first week of June. Keep in mind we are not changing the green contours, just returning them to their original sizes. I really believe this will be the most noticeable result of this project.
Let the renovation begin… finally! The renovation work is underway at Osprey Point with the focus on re-grassing all of the tees, fairways and greens with Paspalum (the same grass we have on the Ocean Course), return the greens to their original size and contours, build a new practice green, rebuild all the bunkers, add nine new forward tees, laser level all tees boxes & improve drainage while re-contouring the 2nd & 18th fairways. All of this by October! There will be a few other minor tweaks around the course as well. Read More
On Thursday, May 1, Osprey Point closed for the summer for major renovations. Since 1988, the Tom Fazio-designed Osprey Point has been a guest favorite on Kiawah Island. Using the natural beauty of the maritime forest on the eastern side of the island, it gracefully weaves its way around four natural fresh-water ponds to provide players of all levels challenging yet enjoyable rounds of golf. It has hosted numerous championships including the 2000 Eastern Regional PGA Club Professional Championship, and the Golf Digest magazine’s “Best Places to Play” give it a near perfect 4 ½ star rating.

When it comes to a national audience, few publications these days exceed the coast-to-coast reach of USA Today. So when its readers were asked to pick their top golf destinations in the world, it speaks volumes that a pair of South Carolina locations ranked 1-2 in the newspaper’s month-long voting.
On March 9-13, teams from around the country converged on Kiawah Island Golf Resort to compete in the 15th Annual Kiawah National Pro Am sponsored by Club Car. One pro and three amateurs took on four of the resort’s courses – The Ocean Course, Turtle Point, Osprey Point and Cougar Point.
The eighth annual installment of Golf’s Fifth Major, the Friendship Cup, was held March 6-9 at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The 36 hole tournament consisting of 92 teams playing in a two man best-ball format was contested at the world-renowned Ocean Course, site of the 2012 PGA Championship, and Cougar Point, the resort’s Gary Player design. While The Ocean Course has remained the constant throughout the first seven years of the event, 2014 marked the first time that Cougar Point was used in the rotation. It did not disappoint, as the players raved about the condition of the golf course and the variety of the layout, adding another group of guests who believe Cougar Point to be the resort’s hidden gem.
Natalie Payne of the resort staff handles our special events. She put together our yearly “Women’s Golf Getaway.” While not a traditional golf tournament, this weekend provides exceptional value for women golfers of all levels of play. Two LPGA Professionals along with our full instruction staff are on board providing tips and instruction found nowhere else in a weekend like this. Guests enjoy instruction from some of the best golf pros in the country, plus golf rounds and relaxation on Kiawah Island. With different options for experienced golfers and beginners who may have not held a club before, each participant receives valuable golf knowledge and takes home wonderful memories.
