Originally named Marsh Point, Cougar Point was redesigned by Gary Player in 1996 and it has become a great strategic layout where players need to think their way around the course. It features a great blend of short and long par-4s, great risk/reward par-5s and extremely scenic and challenging par-3s. Cougar Point’s long par-4s feature wide landing areas putting the driver in the player’s hands, and open-run-up areas in front of the green making them reachable by the shorter hitters using a wood or long-iron. Players must find specific landing areas on their drives to avoid obstacles and provide the best angle to the greens. One of the most dramatic vistas on the island is the middle of Cougar Point’s front nine, along the Kiawah River, making this course a very memorable one.
