The World's Best Golf Resorts - 2007

Kiawah Island Golf Resort — Kiawah Island, SC, United States

Just outside the charming, historical destination-city of Charleston, South Carolina, Kiawah Island Golf Resort boasts villa and condo accomodations and world-class golf and tennis in a setting found nowhere else. For thousands of years, eagles, egrets and other natural residents of Kiawah have enjoyed its lush, semi-tropical environment, while remaining sheltered from the world. Today, Kiawah Island remains a haven for those who stay. However, the reasons for visiting have become more varied. From ten miles of romantic, unspoiled beach to 30 miles of paved, biking trails. From kayaking and canoeing adventures to alligator and birding walks. From oceanfront fine dining to riverside oyster roasts. Then there's the golf. Five championship courses, including the world-famous Ocean Course, host of the 1991 Ryder Cup Matches and the 1997 and 2003 World Cup of Golf. Your accomodations on this island may comprise a lavish private oceanfront home with private dock, miles of deck, and room for everyone. It may be a handsomely appointed villa mere steps from the first tee. A villa with breeze-kissed balcony from which the sounds of the sea provide a sensuous nightly serenade. Or perhaps a luxurious room or suite at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, the finest oceanfront hotel built on the East Coast in two decades.
