Kiawah Island is south of Charleston about 45 minutes. It's a resort and real estate development which contains 5 courses. The most notable layout here is the Pete Dye designed Ocean Course which is hard against the Atlantic Ocean, opening in 1991 and designed specifically for the 1991 Ryder Cup. It was dubbed Looney Dunes after the Ryder Cup, and was the setting for the Legend of Bagger Vance.
The design "lifted" the course above the beach level so the fairways and greens are raised up even higher exacerbating the wind factor. There's continued forced carries over marshes and waste bunkers to raised small Bermuda greens with sand and natural waste areas throughout with ten of the holes directly on the Atlantic so the wind is always a factor. The course one of the highest slope and course ratings in the US at 144 slope and 73.2 course rating from the tips at 7,356 yards with four shorter tees.
