3 of the Best Ways to Prepare for the Next PGA Championship in Kiawah

The last PGA Championship on Kiawah Island was hosted at The Ocean Course on an exciting August weekend in 2012.

In 2021, the excitement of the PGA Championship will return to Kiawah Island, South Carolina, and you won’t want to miss it!

The 2021 PGA Championship on Kiawah promises to bring the best golfers from around the world and tens of thousands of fans to our back yard. If numbers from the 2016 PGA championship are any indication, we can expect more than 1,000 members of the media, 5,000 PGA volunteers and staff members, and 80,000 fans to arrive on Kiawah Island in August 2021. Whether you are looking for a rental property to book during the tournament, or you are a homeowner considering renting out your home, here is everything you need to know about the upcoming PGA Championship on Kiawah Island.

2. Learn More About 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. Because of this, it is often compared to the seaside courses found in the United Kingdom.

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! While the Kiawah golf rates often vary with the season, rest assured that there isn’t a bad time to visit. The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is the No. 4 Public Golf Course in the U.S. Don’t miss your opportunity to experience it firsthand.
