Turtle Point is a low-profile golf course that delivers a high caliber golfing experience. Players from the Carolina Amateur, the Carolina PGA, the South Carolina Amateur and the 1990 PGA Cup Matches will all agree that the Turtle Point Golf Course is a true test for strategy and accuracy.
Jack Nicklaus once said that his number one goal in golf course design was to “make the player use his mind ahead of his muscles – to control his emotions sufficiently to really think through his options before drawing a club from the bag.” To that we say, welcome to Turtle Point Golf Club at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, one of Jack’s early designs and steeped in the finest traditions of classic golf course architecture.
Like many of Jack’s early courses, the greens on Turtle Point are small. So players need to be able to hit shots high if they want them to stop. The course calls for players to be able to shape their shots both left-to-right and right-to-left. They will need to be proficient with every club in the bag and won't necessarily hit a driver on every hole. And true to Jack's playing philosophy, Turtle Point plays best hitting to specific landing areas to get the best angles into the greens.
Approximate Yardages for the Kiawah Island Junior Challenge are as follows:Boys 10U: 5,108: Girls 13U: 5,295; Boys 11-13/Girls 14-18: 5,681; Boys 14-15/Boys 16-18: 6,645.
