Kiawah Island Waterfront Real Estate, A barrier island paradise
If you're a golfer, you'll have an unequaled selection of award-winning courses on which to test your skill: Oak Point by Clyde Johnston, Turtle Point by Jack Nicklaus, Cougar Point by Gary Player, Osprey Point by Tom Fazio, and the famed Ocean Course by Pete Dye. The Ocean Course was the site of the 1991 Ryder Cup Matches, 1997 World Cup of Golf, and most recently, the inaugural UBS Warburg Cup in November 2001. These three prestigious events rank among golf's premier international competitions. The Ocean Course received further recognition by Golf Digest as 'America's Toughest Resort Course' and by Golf Magazine as 'one of the world's top 100.' For tennis buffs, there are two complete tennis centers, with fully staffed pro shops, extensive instructional facilities and a zoned practice court with an automated ball machine. Kiawah's tennis facilities were recently ranked by Tennis Magazine in its ratings of the 'Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts.'
Night Heron Park is home to Kiawah Island Resort's highly-acclaimed recreation program. Along with 21 acres (8.5 ha) of playing fields, picnic areas, and a pool complex, a number of supervised and nature-oriented participatory activities are planned throughout the summer months and holidays for children of all ages, teens and families.
You'll find it to be the perfect vacation spot for a day, a week, or a lifetime. Kiawah Island is a private community with access limited to property owners and guests of the resort or rental agencies. Public access to the beach is available at Beachwalker County Park, located on the west end of the island.
