Travelogue

Kiawah Island, about 20 miles from Charleston, epitomizes the beauty of South Carolina's Low Country, and the Palmetto trees and Spanish moss lend somewhat of a cinematic aesthetic to the experience. The sublime, oceanfront Sanctuary Hotel anchors five golf courses and a mix of villas and homes, with an endless supply of activities and adventures for guests to explore. The golf menu at Kiawah Island is mind-blowing: the Ocean Course by Pete Dye, Osprey Point by Tom Fazio, Turtle Point by Jack Nicklaus, Cougar Point by Gary Player and Oak Point by Clyde Johnson. The Ocean Course garners the lion's share of attention, but the other four courses have grown more popular thanks to a bevy of renovations and improvements. Play all five on your visit and you'll bag enough memories to last a lifetime.
