Detailed description of Kiawah Island Resorts, Oak Point Golf Course

Oak Point Golf Course, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in John's Island, South Carolina.

The resort purchased Oak Point in 1997, rounding out the championship rotation of five courses that makes Kiawah Island Golf Resort one of the world's great golf destinations. The Kiawah Island Golf Resort courses are: The Ocean Course, Turtle Point Golf Course, Osprey Point Golf Course, Oak Point Golf Course and Cougar Point Golf Course.

Clyde Johnston, a noted Southeastern golf course architect, designed Oak Point on the grounds of former tomato and indigo plantation. Oak Point opened for play in 1989. With its close proximity to the Kiawah River and the Haulover Creek, with its surrounding maritime forest, Johnston was able to mold the rolling landscape into a first-class layout. Undulating fairways and challenging greens are some of the unique features of Oak Point.

Oak Point is a shotmaker's course. Strategy and a thinking approach to the golf course will be rewarded over pure power. In this sense, it is a bit of a throwback to the classic courses of the 1920s where the ability to place the ball in a certain portion of the fairway or a certain spot of the green was more important than power.
