Oak Point opens up with a dogleg left par 5. It is an excellent risk-reward second shot with water on the left and plenty of room on the right to leave a short approach shot. Favor the right side of the fairway to avoid the trees on the left that can block your second shot.
A magnificent oak tree sets the back drop to this challenging par 3 with a lagoon down the left hand side and a large green complex guarded by bunkers on both the left and right sides.
This short par 4 has newly contoured fairways as well as two added fairway bunkers down the left side to guard against hitting the ball in the hazard. A well-played tee shot can leave you a short iron to the green with possibility of birdie.
Standing on this tee players can now see the water that runs down the left side of the hole. The ideal tee shot will favor the right side of the fairway. Players must consider the water that cuts across the fairway 135 yards from the green when deciding on how to play their second shot. This green is large enough and very receptive for those that wish to go for the green in two.
The ideal tee shot here is a right to left shot starting at the cluster of trees down the right side working back to the middle of the fairway. This will leave you with a mid-iron into a two-tiered green where long brings the water behind the green into play.
This 430 yard par 4 is beautifully framed by live oaks. A left to right tee shot will leave you a mid to long iron into a slightly elevated green. A left side pin location can be very difficult to attack due to the two left bunkers guarding the green. Aim for the middle right of the green. A two putt par is a good score on this hole.
Club selection is critical to this par 3 that has a long narrow green sloping left to right that is guarded by a large oak on the right hand side and a new bunker on the left. Missing the green makes for a difficult up and down.
This third par 5 on the front side has a generous landing area off the tee. A well struck second shot offers a great opportunity to land the ball near or on this right to left sloping green bringing birdie into play.
This picturesque closing hole on the front side is a strong par 3 with a dramatic view of Haulover Creek as a backdrop. Do not be fooled by the relative shortness of this hole the wind generally plays off the creek into you. This wide green can also leave an extremely long putt if not accurate on the tee shot.
An accurate tee shot is required to this fairway that narrows with a large oak tree on the right and lagoon on the left. Players who miss the fairway to the right may end up in the historical plantation cemetery (we request you please take a drop if you happen to end up there). Placement of your second shot is critical to this back to front sloped green. Leaving the ball above the hole can lead to a very difficult two putt.
The addition of a new tee box will allow players a new perspective of this challenging par 3 requiring a mid to long iron off the tee and into a tiered green sloping back to front. A mid to back right pin location on this elevated green guarded by a bunker can be a difficult task. Aim for the middle of the green to insure a two putt par.
This lightly uphill straight away par 5 generally plays down wind giving players the opportunity to attack the green in two or lay up for a short challenging wedge shot to an elevated putting surface. The key to success is avoiding the lagoons on both sides of the fairway.
This relatively straight forward par 4 features a pond on the right that narrows the fairway for the longer hitters. Players will have a mid-iron into this green that is guarded by a large bunker left and a smaller bunker front right.
This short par 4 can be the most difficult driving hole on the course. A fairway wood or iron is the smart play off the tee to a narrowing fairway leaving a short iron over a lagoon into this generous green guarded by back bunkers.
This short yet challenging par 3 calls for a short to mid iron over water to a wide but not very deep green. The surrounding tree line can make judging the wind difficult at times and, the large bunker front of the green or the three pot bunkers behind the green will make for a difficult up and down.
This par 4 is not overly long making accuracy a premium off the tee. Players will have a mid to short iron into this green that is protected by a large bunker on the right.
The final par 5 on the course can play extremely long especially into the wind. The narrow shoot from the tee makes for an intimidating tee shot. The fairway is actually very wide with a pond reachable by the longer hitters on the left. An ideal second shot to the left side of the fairway will leave a shot to mid iron into an elevated green that is tiered with a severe drop from middle to front. Ball placement is critical to insure a birdie or par rather than bogie.
The signature 18th hole at Oak Point offers a spectacular view of Haulover Creek and The Kiawah River. With the new addition of a back elevated tee box this is a great photo opportunity for this picturesque hole. An ideal tee shot will work left to right off the fairway bunker into the center of the fairway leaving a mid-iron into a deep green that is guarded by the marsh on the front and right side.
