The Turtle Point Golf Club is a Jack Nicklaus masterpiece that was opened way back in 1981 at Kiawah Island Resort. This 18-hole layout features the spectacular oceanfront holes with well-bunkered greens and narrow fairways perfectly blended into the area’s existing landscape. What makes Turtle Point unique from the rest of the island’s golf courses is that there are no radical features as well as artificial mounding in the area. The layout’s 6,914 yards offer golfers of all handicap levels the 412-yard 15th, 5 par fours, and the three-hole oceanfront trio which is considered as the toughest test of golfing skills in the entire layout. Golfers often flock this stunning golf vacation destination to take on the challenges of the layout that has a 141 slope rating on Bermuda grass and a course rating of 74.2.
Turtle Point Golf Club also served as the host to several amateur and professional golf competitions including the PGA Cup Matches during the 1990’s. The layout’s low profile design that was perfectly carved out from the island’s dune ridges and natural contours has made the resort an attractive vacation spot, especially for those who would want to combine nature and pleasure. Aside from the best views of the Atlantic Ocean, guests will also have their fair share of other amazing natural attractions including the layout’s backwater lagoons and the lush palmetto and hardwood forests.
