We enjoyed a great round on a very challenging course today. Wind was low, but you want to be able to place your shots on this course. Caddies are reunited for each 2 golfers

I do not remember exactly but I believe that it was in the $200 range plus caddy fee. It is a great course and if you have the opportunity, play it. There are packages as well and four other courses on Kiawah.
