Come to Charleston ready to play! World Class golf is surrounds you. The natural beauty of the Lowcountry is incorporated in course design, resulting in stunningly beautiful holes and challenging play. Nowhere is this more evident than the courses at Kiawah Island. The crown jewel at Kiawah, The Ocean Course, was the site of the 2012 PGA Championship, and one of the most memorable Ryder Cups in history, the 1991 “War by the Shore.”
Tennis players and fans alike will delight in the offerings. Kiawah Island Golf and Tennis Resort is rated among the top tennis resorts in the world. And each Spring, the largest women only tennis tournament in North America, The Volvo Car Open, is held at the Family Circle Tennis Center on Daniel Island.
Sand lovers aren’t left out. The beaches at Sullivan’s Island, Folly Beach, Isle of Palms Edisto Beach and Kiawah each have their own unique character. The amazing wild dunes, fine white sand, and great swimming can’t beat.
If fishing is your thing, why not arrange a charter and test your skills catching Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Sea trout and more. See the beautiful scenery from the vantage point of the water for an entirely different perspective.
If you’d rather just be a spectator, you’re in luck. Division I College Sports are well represented with teams in over 20 sports from the Citadel and College of Charleston. The South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL play their fast brand of hockey at the North Charleston Coliseum. Or take in a Charleston Riverdogs game at “The Joe”, the stadium named after named after Charleston’s legendary former mayor, Joseph P. Riley Jr.. The Riverdogs are a Class A affiliate of the New York Yankees, and you may even catch co-owner and Charleston resident Bill Murray clowning for the fans in the stands.
