Generally, courses of the caliber of Osprey Point are in private club settings with restricted memberships and high membership fees. In fact, its architect, Tom Fazio, originally developed it as a members’ only type course. However, since Osprey Point is now part of Kiawah Island Golf Resort, anyone can enjoy this beautiful Lowcountry gem.
Not only is Osprey Point a world-class layout, Osprey Point’s large, elegant clubhouse is available for guest’s use. It’s a favorite of not only after-round libations and dining, it’s a favorite location for wedding receptions and special event functions.
Since Fazio’s design was for a member’s only type of course, Osprey Point is very playable for the average golfer. It features generous landing areas and few forced carries. From the proper tees, the course poses appropriate challenges to the better golfers and fairness to the high-handicapper, senior golfers and junior golfers.
For the better player, the course is very challenging with plenty of hazards to avoid, numerous risk/reward options and doglegs that go both left to right and right to left, requiring a premium on both accuracy and finesse.
Osprey Point is ranked 10th in Golf For Women“ magazine’s list of the “50 Best Golf Courses for Women,” It was also recently awarded a near-perfect 4½ stars in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” reader’s poll where it was considered one of the best values in South Carolina.
