River Course Clubhouse
The newly redesigned clubhouse claims spectacular placement on an ancient bluff of large, live oaks with the Kiawah River to the north and Bass Pond to the southeast. Relying on Member feedback, a top-tier design team created an amenity that celebrates the social spirit—an essential meeting place for the Club community. Lowcountry palates and regional materials reflect the indigenous beauty of the landscape while great walls of windows overlooking the emerald fairways, the Kiawah River, and ancient forestry ensure that nature, itself, is an honored guest at every gathering.
Designed by Tom Fazio, the River Course opened in 1995 as The Kiawah Island Club’s first golf course. For golfers, the River Course provides a challenging and aesthetically pleasing 7,019-yard test. It boasts six holes that play along the river’s edge, with the other fairways and greens playing along picturesque marsh savannas, ponds, and the Island’s incomparable maritime forests.
