Cassique CourseChase Godwin, PGA Head Golf Professional
Reminiscent of a 19th-century English country manor, the Cassique Clubhouse offers commanding views of the golf course and the surrounding tidelands of the Kiawah River. Exceptional offerings, both sporting and social, have earned the venue status as centerpiece to the Cassique community.
Named for the Kiawah Indian chiefs who once hunted the Lowcountry, Cassique’s 7,050-yard test ranges through maritime forests and along marshes where the Kiawah River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Since its opening in 2000, the Tom Watson-designed course has garnered numerous accolades and showcases the dramatic flare that has punctuated Watson’s playing career.
Watson’s first solo design in North America, Cassique benefits from lessons learned en route to five British Open Championships. With its walkable layout, the par-72 links-style course is reminiscent of tracts found in Scotland and Ireland. Like those classic seaside settings, Cassique offers little protection from ocean winds, so Watson fashioned holes that could be played in numerous ways depending upon the conditions and the creativity of the golfer.
