Guests of Property Owners on Kiawah Island are able to book tee times on a space available basis only. The resort gives priority and the ability to reserve times more than a week in advance only to their own guests. As our property is not managed by the resort, you need to wait until you get onto the island to book times. Often this is not a problem, but during the busiest weeks, it may be. If having guaranteed golf and tennis times are priorities, you should book a rental in a home that is managed by the resort.
