Kiawah Island, SC – Continuing in its efforts to providing the finest golf and vacation experience for its guests, Kiawah Island Golf Resort today announced plans to renovate the Gary Player-designed Cougar Point Golf Course. Renovation is to begin November 28, 2016 with reopening scheduled for the beginning of October, 2017.
The renovation will include re-grassing the greens, tees, and fairways with Paspalum (the same highly acclaimed salt-tolerant grass that the resort has on its other four golf courses); laser level all tee boxes including the practice range; rebuild all bunkers; update the irrigation throughout the golf course; and rebuild existing bulkheads. Representatives from Gary Player Design Company have already visited the course and offered design suggestions.
Since 2011, all of the resort’s courses have undergone extensive renovations. Prior
