Kiawah Island Golf Resort Expands in 2012

Kiawah Island Golf Resort Expands in 2012

The Kiawah Island Golf Resort has made a firm proposal to expand their already impressive facilities. The announcement was made several months before they are scheduled to play host to the 2012 PGA Championship.

Initial planning and economic studies for the construction of a 150-room hotel are already on the table. The hotel is being proposed for the rise on the west side of the island, where the former Kiawah Island Inn used to be located. Proposals regarding the construction of golf cottages near The Ocean Course are also being considered.

Roger Warren, the resort’s President, described how the hotel would provide a classy resort experience for the clients, including boutiques, pools, restaurants, and meeting areas. A clubhouse will also house the Cougar Point Golf Course members. The cottages would be designed to enhance the experience of visitors who want to devote most of their time to golf.

Warren admitted that the concepts are still subject for review by the resort’s board owners. The decision whether to move forward with the construction will be made thereafter. The proposed projects are consistent with what the owners have been doing for the past 20 years.

The resort, which is located just south of Charleston, South Carolina, was named by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine as the number 1 golf resort and number 3 overall resort on the US mainland.
