Worst of the Kiawah courses by far
Skip this one. its still 260 bucks for 18, the greens are slow, the views are limited (10 or 11 of the holes look like suburban municipal courses), and its not that close to the island. storno (30 m away) has an equivalent course with 20 percent of the price tag. ocean course and osprey point are miles ahead
Great shot makers challenge
Love playing this course as it requires you to really be in control of your game. Quality shots are rewarded and bad shots punished. If you play the correct tees and not try and overpower the course you will have a great day.....just avoid the 1000 alligators! They are everywhere!
Course you could play every day
I really enjoyed Oak Point. Good challenging and interesting golf holes. It starts off with a solid par 5 where I was greeted by 3 gators soaking in the sunshine when I got to the green. There is a good mix of short and longer holes. I caught up with 2 other players and a resident single joined us for the back. He plays nearly every day. If this is where I move to when I retire I would probably pick Oak Point as my go to course too. It’s a course you could play 3-4 times a week and never get tired of it. On 10 green a bald eagle flew in and snagged a fish and flew away. What a great sight.. Par 3 11th has a fun undulating green. Short par 5 12th is one to get a shot back on. The short par 4 14th is one that I haven’t figured out how to play. Local knowledge from Our single who plays frequently was to lay up but.....”No that would be the smart thing to do.” Needless to say I was lucky to make bogey after hitting driver off the tee. You finish on a stunning par 4 that is tough to stay focused on the hole because you will want to admire the scenery. I've Always found that my favorite golf courses are ones I can remember each hole after playing it once. This is one of them.
Nice Course, Slow Greens
Played with a group and we had a nice round. Conditions were very nice but the greens were unbelievably slow. I would likely play again if I'm in the area.
Course was in great shape. Loved the layout. Some easy hole and some very challenging holes. Will come back
Good starter round
Oak Point, from a logistics and playability perspective, is a good jumping-off point for golf groups coming to Kiawah Island. It's actually located just off the island and you drive past it on your way in. It's also by many measures the easiest of the five courses. Designed by Clyde Johnston, the course has been renovated and improved a lot since it was originally acquired by the resort. It has scenic finishes to each side along the Kiawah River. The clubhouse lacks the amenities of Cougar and Turtle, but there is a solid practice facility here. Conditions are every bit as good as the other courses. Oak Point brings up the rear amongst the five resort courses but it's narrowed the gap in many ways in recent history and can build up your confidence before taking on Ocean.
Nice Warmup for Ocean Course
This course is really nice. They conditions were very good and wildlife were everywhere.
The layout has a nice variety of short and long holes. You will need to use every club in your bag.
The staff really made you feel welcome.
This was my first course played in Kiawah. Couldn't make it to the masters so the guys went to spend the weekend together playing golf and watching the Masters on TV. Great round with a fair amount of wind. The course was in excellent shape. The greens were very firm and fast but true. I was surprised that very often there was not a ball mark to repair on the green. Very nice, staff was excellent.
