Golf Resort Community: Kiawah Island

    With seven courses designed by such legends as Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Pete Dye, Kiawah Island would attract buyers for its golf alone. But what separates this 10,000-acre resort community from other golf-centric developments are its prime coastal location—which includes 10 miles of sandy beaches—and its superlative amenities. This combination has made the community, which is located on a barrier island 21 miles south of Charleston, one of the most continually sought-after destinations in the South.

    In addition to five public courses, members of the Kiawah Island Club (restricted to the island’s property owners) have access to two private golf courses and clubhouses, a beach club, and a spa. Current prices for homesites range from $250,000 to $5.9 million, and homes range from $255,000 to $14 million.
