Mark Your Calendar for These Fall Kiawah Island Club Events
Although Kiawah’s idyllic coast allows residents to enjoy summer-like temperatures well into autumn, there’s still something particularly enchanting about this time of year on the Island. Maybe it’s the beauty of the leaves changing into shades of burnt orange, bold red, and rustic brown, or perhaps it’s the way a fall breeze feels against your skin — but there’s no denying this new season is an exciting time for many.
While there are many ways to welcome the fall season on Kiawah Island, this is especially true for Kiawah Island Club Members. From exclusive amenities, dining experiences, events, and more, being a Member of the Kiawah Island Club provides an abundance of opportunities for entertainment.

Sip on a variety of fall-inspired flavors, such as tart berries, warm vanilla, savory spices, and hints of brown sugar while you take in all the beauty that surrounds you.
