A 1-2 Punch second to none!
My #1 Course – Kiawah Ocean Course
My Favorite City in the USA – Charleston
You couldn’t help but to be impressed by Phil Mickelson’s performance at Kiawah’s iconic Ocean Course. It’s a course that I have had the pleasure to play over 1 half dozen times in all sorts of conditions and since the first time it has been my #1 course in the world.
Coincidently may favorite city in the USA, Charleston just happens to be a short drive away. When I first read this article, it reminded me of when I first started working in the area with a local packager who wanted to bring to light all of the great golf in and around the Charleston area. Certainly, Kiawah is most recognized and deserves to be, but it also comes with a price tag that not everyone wants to absorb.
If you are going to Charleston, it would be and injustice to not step onto one of the courses at Kiawah, even if you only played one. Just do it, even if not the Ocean Course the other 4 courses are all outstanding and you can dream about Ocean for the next visit.
The golf, outside of Kiawah in the area, I have played them all in Summerville, Mt. Pleasant and Isle of Palms areas around Charleston and 100% guarantee you that you will not be disappointed, and much more affordable. Call it affordable Charleston!
Charleston is such a great, historic city, accolades coming out the wazoo on the shores of the Atlantic, bars, restaurants and a shopping district second to none – so much to offer just check out this site. https://www.charlestoncvb.com/
