Many destinations feature great golf, spas, and other activities.  But visitors rarely rave about the food.

And these days, a lot of us are ‘foodies,’ meaning we value quality cuisine and seek it out.  Golf lovers and foodies are always looking for places to combine both passions.  Here is one that will fulfill all their fantasies!

Kiawah Island Golf Resort is a fabulous getaway spot just 30 minutes south of Charleston, SC. Featuring 5 award-winning golf courses like The Ocean Course, which has hosted every PGA of America major event, including the Ryder Cup.  This resort also offers the best in gourmet dining. The Ocean Room gets the most buzz and has been awarded Four Stars from Forbes and Four Diamonds from AAA. It is the only steakhouse in the USA to receive both awards.

“Best Down Home Cookery” award from Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report was bestowed upon Jasmine Porch at the resort.

Put this one on your “Escape To” list!

Some destinations boast great golf. Some offer unique regional fare. Fewer still offer exceptional experiences in both. But, just 21 miles south of historic Charleston, there is a breathtaking barrier island that offers championship golf and award-winning dining.  Plus world-class tennis, a 10-mile stretch of beach, biking, paddle sports and more.  All in a peaceful, natural setting. That destination? Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

The “off-season” of November through February marks a tremendous opportunity to make your way to this unspoiled private island. The temperatures are mild and pleasant. There is a true sense of tranquility. Consequently, the rates are the best you’ll see all year.

Golfers looking for a memorable getaway will find five world-class courses at Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s lush setting:

The Ocean Course Challenging Moments, Memorable Victories
