The layout of this course is very bland. Many of the holes are very similar. The last few holes near the ocean are very good, most of the others are forgettable.

The course is in nice condition, but this is my least favorite of the Kiawah resort courses.

Go play Oak Point, Osprey or the Ocean Course, don't waste your time playing this course.

I really enjoyed this course which surprised me because I met some golfers the day before I played that said "it was too narrow, unfair, too hard, etc."<br/> I had a great time while playing from the forward tees. Yes, some fairways are narrow but not all of them are "too narrow."<br/> The one hole that was really narrow was the 16th hole (see photo) but it was a lot of fun to play!<br/> I would say if you have a really bad hook or slice you will have a hard time but if you are normally straight off the tee, have a mild fade, or mild draw, you will love this course.
