The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island

Join the ranks of avid golfers who have The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort on their must-play list for a true test of skill. Located on the eastern-most end of the island, The Ocean Course boasts the most seaside holes in the Northern Hemisphere with ten hugging the Atlantic and the other eight running parallel to those.
 
From one round to the next, a player can experience up to an 8-club difference on holes depending upon the wind’s direction and strength.
 
The Ocean Course is only the fourth course to have hosted each of the PGA of America’s major championships, including the dramatic 1991 Ryder Cup and 2012 PGA Championship—a contest which will return to the course in 2021.
 

The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort

The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, an oceanfront hotel and spa, opened off the coast of Charleston, SC in August 2004. A casual but elegant building, reminiscent of a grand seaside mansion, the four-story hotel was designed to feel like it has been on Kiawah for centuries, evolving and expanding from one imaginary homeowner to the next. The architect was Cooper Carry from Atlanta; the design consultant was Smith+McClane in Richmond, VA; Hirsch Bedner Associates from Atlanta was the interior designer; Skanska USA from Atlanta was the general contractor; and Design Works from Charleston was the landscape architect.
