About

The 6th Annual City Tour Championship will be held from December 4th – 6th at Kiawah Island’s Championship Courses Turtle Point and Osprey Point in South Carolina. Kiawah Island is one of the most visited golf destinations in the world and is well known for its ocean views and pristine golfing conditions. The resort has hosted the Ryder Cup, Senior PGA Championship and PGA Championship, the latter of which will return to The Ocean Course in May 2021.  All participants will have the option to play The Ocean Course either Friday or Monday of Championship weekend.

Players staying on site can enjoy access to the pool, fitness facilities and all amenities. Learn more about pricing, the courses and tournament packages below.

Championship Courses

Turtle Point

Turtle Point City Championship Kiawah

The Turtle Point course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and has also received many accolades from Golf Digest magazine. Turtle Point hosts many regional tournaments including the Carolina Amateur. The final 5 holes of Turtle Point run along the ocean and are considered some of the best on Kiawah’s property, with the par-4 15th the “signature hole”.

This course will provide a great challenge and stunning views for both best ball and scramble players in the City Tour Championship.

Osprey Point

Kiawah Osprey No_15

This used to be a members only course as the Kiawah regulars wanted Osprey all to themselves! Renovated by Tom Fazio in 2014, Osprey Point is now open to the public and is noted for its playability and natural beauty. Each hole is unique and it’s known for its extremely distinctive par-5’s.

Osprey will likely play as the easier of the two courses, with a shorter and simpler layout.

The Ocean Course

City Championship 2020

Join the ranks of golfers who finally get to cross The Ocean Course off their must-play list. Ranked as the #1 golf course in South Carolina, this course boasts the most seaside holes in the Northern Hemisphere and it’s unlikely that any other golf course outside of the United Kingdom and Ireland is as affected by wind. Players have unobstructed views of the ocean on 10 holes, with the other 8 running just parallel. This course will play host to the 2021 PGA Championship May 17-23rd, just 5 months after the City Tour visits the facility.
