Is a caddie necessary at Kiawah?  I know it sounds like I'm being cheap, but I just prefer to not have one.

Yes, it's a great experience taking a caddie.  I even enjoy the forecaddie they provide in the afternoon.

no ... and ain't nothing wrong with being 'cheap' when a caddie adds $100 to the round ...

I make the trip down and play the ocean course twice a year. 1 round I usually take a caddie, 1 round I don't. They really aren't necessary. The walk is pretty easy, and I think the course plays pretty straight forward. Greens aren't overly crazy. If you can read putts, physically able to carry then you'll be fine. Buy a yardage book.

It is not required.  I carried and it is a pretty easy walk.  I even saw a few people with push carts when I went Mid Jan.  If you are staying on a tighter budget, make sure to stop and get essentials at a grocery store before you get to the island.  The food at the resort is okay, but expensive.  Places I would highly recommend checking out....

1.  Low Tide Brewing Company
2.  Swing and Swine (BBQ place)
3.  Links course at Wild Dunes if you can get a good rate (don't play the Harbor Course)
4.  Early Bird Diner if you like Diners

Caddie is nice if youíve never played it for certain lines off the tee, but certainly not necessary if you would rather save that cash (I donít take a caddie when playing there).
Forever Changing at this point.......

Drive into Charleston, checkout Hank's Seafood / Revelry or Cooper City Brewing and be careful driving back to Kiawah at night down Bohicket Road with the oak trees right next to the road.

I've played Kiawah once with the caddie and it was a cool experience. When I go back (eventually) I wont be getting a caddie.

for food we LOVED tattooeed moose on John's Island. Short drive from Kiawah, but cool atmoshpere and great food.
