The Black Knight gives his thoughts on the recent renovation of Cougar Point at Kiawah Island.
What was your guiding principal when first designing Cougar Point?
Gary Player: Kiawah Island itself is a paradise, especially for golfers. Creating the original Cougar Point design, many years ago, was a special opportunity for the Player Design team to showcase our environmentally sensitive approach considering the marshland, oaks and natural habitats of wildlife. Being a resort course, we also made sure the course was playable for all members and guests, but also challenging for the most skilled golfers.
