With the roars of the crowds still echoing through Celtic Manor, and as the winning team celebrates its victory, another Ryder Cup is in the record books. The thrill doesn’t have to end there. Kiawah Island Golf Resort, off the coast of beautiful and historic Charleston, South Carolina, is offering golfers a chance to relive the exhilaration of playing for their team with their 20th Anniversary Ryder Cup package commemorating the anniversary of its historic Ryder Cup.
“Twenty years ago on the shores of Kiawah Island, the golf world was captivated by one of the most dramatic Ryder Cup championships in history. This year, golfers can relive the glory on the same epic venue, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort,” said Brian Gerard, Kiawah’s Director of Golf. “For less than $1,000 each, groups can play three of our courses, ending on The Ocean Course, in a complete Ryder Cup experience – playing the same format, sharing the camaraderie and competition on the same venue that produced some of the Ryder Cup’s most lasting memories.”
Ideally, groups of 16 would participate in this package (separated into teams of eight). However, the resort’s golf professionals will work with each group, regardless of their size, to provide the best experience.
The packages, which start at less than $1,000 per person, will receive:
- Three nights accommodations (Villas or Private Homes)
- Three rounds of championship golf, of which one round will be played on The Ocean Course
- A one hour opening/closing reception with complimentary beer and wine
- Breakfast each morning
- Each player will receive: One team hat and golf shirt (red or blue)
- Trophy for the winning team
- On-island transportation
- All taxes and service charges included (with the exclusion of the caddy gratuity on The Ocean Course)
This offer is valid during the calendar year 2011 (20 years after Kiawah’s 1991 Ryder Cup) and is subject to availability. Offer is unavailable over holidays and during the summer (June 1 through August 31, 2011).
Located along 10 miles of pristine beach just south of Charleston, SC, Kiawah Island Golf Resort was recently named the No. 1 resort on the U.S. Mainland by readers of the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler magazine. It was also named the No. 1 golf resort by Golf World magazine and one of the top five tennis resorts in the U.S. by Tennis magazine. Kiawah Island is also known as one of the top eco-friendly resorts in the U.S. and its beach was named one of the 10 best beaches in America by famed “beachologist,” Dr. Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach. In addition to The Sanctuary, the resort’s 255-room oceanfront hotel and spa, the resort manages 600 private villas and luxury homes, nine restaurants, two tennis centers, a renowned recreation and nature program and has five championship golf courses, including The Ocean Course, host of the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 2007 Senior PGA and 2012 PGA championships.
