The Ocean Course Clubhouse

TOC Clubhouse

Kiawah’s renowned Ocean Course graces one of the most extraordinarily beautiful parcels of land ever devoted solely to golf.  In 2007, the resort opened this five-star-caliber clubhouse fit for The Ocean Course’s magnificent setting.

Thursday kicked off our Mingo Point Oyster Roast & BBQ season on the resort! Thank you to everyone that came out and made it a huge success, all 812 of y’all! This isn’t your typical backyard oyster roast; this is a one of a kind authentic Lowcountry experience! If you missed out…don’t worry, there’s another Mingo TONIGHT, Monday, April 21st!

Upon arrival the smell of smoking BBQ and grilling steaks immediately hits you, the high energy sounds of ‘The Island Trio’ are playing their steel drum and singing some island favorites, people are gathering around oyster tables shucking away, the picnic tables are filling up with families and couples alike, the sun is high in the sky, the Kiawah River is sparkling and we’re ready for one of the greatest events of the year…Easter Mingo! Traditionally, we have two Oyster Roasts during Easter week, one the Thursday before Easter and then one the Monday following.

Earth day on Kiawah

 As a steward of the earth, you are invited to have fun & help an endangered marsh turtle on Earth Day on Kiawah. We love our turtles, but on Kiawah it’s not just sea turtles. A much smaller, elusive turtle has its own fan base. …the Diamondback Terrapin (Malaclemys terrapin). These beautifully decorated turtles are the only turtles in the world that live in the salt marsh their whole lives.

Kiawah Bobcats

For years our Naturalists have been sharing their sightings and stories of Kiawah Bobcats. In the past couple of years, one special Bobcat (2014 Bobcat 350,aka 2013 bobcat 700) has captured our hearts. Through her frequent traverses of Night Heron Park accompanied with information discovered via her GPS collar, we feel a kinship with this beautiful animal.

I just love this time of year…everything is blooming, the days are longer, the weather is warming up and everyone is finding more and more reasons to be outside! But one of my very favorite parts about spring in Charleston is our Farmer’s Markets! Mother Nature’s beautifully crafted fruits and vegetables are springing up and saturating our city with gorgeous flavors and colors. As all these new fruits and vegetables are being handpicked by our local farmers and brought to us, Bartender Lesly Oliver of The Ocean Room is taking full advantage.
