1. Mark Your Calendar for the 2021 PGA Championship on Kiawah Island

The Kiawah Island PGA Championship will be held May 17-23 at Kiawah's Ocean Course.

In conjunction with the PGA of America, The Ocean Course will prepare for the tournament throughout the spring of 2021. Stadium seating will be set up, temporary structures will be built, and an influx of PGA staff and officials will flow into the area. Kiawah will be bustling with activity! If you’re planning to vacation on Kiawah Island, be sure to make reservations for your favorite beach rental well in advance.

2. Explore The Ocean Course

When the PGA Championship returns to Kiawah Island, the spotlight will return to The Ocean Course. Ranked 25th on the 2015 Golf Magazine Top 100 Courses in the U.S. list, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is just one of four venues to host each of the PGA of America’s major championships.

They are the 1991 Ryder Cup, 2007 Senior PGA Championship, and most recently, the 2012 PGA Championship. The par-72 course has 10 oceanside holes, which is more than any other course in North America. It is a must-play for any avid golfer. Its inclined coastal view adheres to the challenges of the ocean breezes while the links-style course provides the best of traditional courses.   

The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is the No. 4 Public Golf Course in the U.S. 

One of the best ways to learn about The Ocean Course before the 2021 PGA Championship on Kiawah Island is to book a tee time and play the course yourself!

You won't find the course in better condition than during this exciting time. Don’t miss your opportunity to experience it firsthand.
