Making full use of Kiawahs maritime forests, lagoons and saltwater marshes, Osprey Point is one of the most popular courses with resort guests. Totally renovated in 2014 under the direction of course architect Tom Fazio, Osprey Point features tees, greens and fairways grassed with Paspalum. Fazio blended a par-72 layout that takes advantage of its setting. The course offers a wide variety of holes, each presenting its own unique challenges and beauty, which are bound to produce an enjoyable round. Each hole is unique and memorable.
The Oak Point Course
Completely renovated in 2015, the new and improved Oak Point offers guests the greatly enhanced playing surface of Paspalum. Renovations also significantly added to the strategic challenges of the design elevating Oak Point to the championship level of the resorts other courses.
The Cougar Point Course

The renovation featured planting Paspalum on all tees, fairways and greens, rebuilding all bunkers, rebuilding all bridges and bulkheads, and updating the irrigation system.
