A NetJets Partnership Finds Kiawah Island Club Members Flying High.
Since its inception, the Kiawah Island Club has been raising the bar on private club offerings. With an emphasis on world-class amenities, exceptional dining, legendary golf courses, and unrivaled social events, the Club has created some of the finest offerings available on earth. Now, it’s taking superior privileges to the sky. In partnering with NetJets, a private aviation company built on fractional ownership, the Kiawah Island Club can offer preferred NetJets membership rates to its Members, as well as exclusive demo flights and access to some of the nation’s most coveted events.
TAKING FLIGHTS TO NEW HEIGHTS
The Kiawah Island Club and NetJets’partnership began in 2018 and already, Club Members have experienced the sky-high perks of the collaboration. On an early April weekend of this year, the world-renowned Masters Tournament unfolded in Augusta, GA, and champion Tiger Woods was not the only winner present at the event. Any Kiawah Island Club Members who attended through NetJets experienced the win-win of discounted private flights paired with exceptional (and exclusive) perks. As the PGA Tour’s official private aviation provider, NetJets boasts enviable benefits for its owners.
Beginning with seamless ground transportation directly from home to the airport, Club Members enjoyed private flights to Augusta National Airport—via a selection of state-of-the-art aircrafts with seating for up to 8 passengers apiece. Once comfortably settled in Augusta, Members enjoyed full access to Club Magnolia, a food and beverage venue with a three-hole putting course to boot. Shuttles were provided for carefree transport to and from Augusta National Golf Club throughout the weekend. And to top off the bounty of benefits for Kiawah Island Club Members, they were invited to NetJets’famed Friday Night Masters Party where NetJets owners, guests, and some of golf’s greatest players enjoyed live music and unforgettable edibles created by Charleston’s Mike Lata, Kiawah Island Club consulting chef at B-Liner and owner of Charleston’s FIG and The Ordinary.

And as those who attended the Masters Tournament in first-class, private-jet style can attest: on a NetJets flight, one can see cloud nine from every single seat.
