If this was presented to me as a fictional course, I would say that it is a decent course, perhaps a bit rough around the edges, but definitely not the worst I have seen. The course is very playable with enjoyable greens, and while it doesn't have a ton of extra details, it is a decent looking Delta course.
This course is named Kiawah Island Ocean Course, however, so I must judge it as a representation of the real course, which is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, this course shares little in common with the real course other than a name and some scorecard yardages. The 3rd hole in particular sticks out, as it lacks the tree in the middle of the fairway, and the green is at a totally wrong angle. It just really doesn't represent the real hole at all, and this is true for pretty much every hole on the course. I did like the 17th, though.
