The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort hosted the 2007 Senior PGA and will host the 2012 PGA Championships. The Ocean Course will become only the fourth course to host each of the PGA of America`s major championships.

Built in 1991 by Pete Dye, there are no prevailing winds on the course. Dye took this into account when designing the course. In fact, he designed two courses into one one for an easterly wind and one for a westerly wind.

Located on the eastern-most end of Kiawah Island, The Ocean Course has more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere 10 right along the Atlantic with the other 8 running parallel to those. Every hole has a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Golf Digest named The Ocean Course "#1 Golf Course in South Carolina" and "America`s Toughest Resort Course." It is one of only 17 "5-star" courses in North America in Golf Digest`s "Best Places to Play" reader`s poll. GOLF Magazine has rated it #3 in its "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" list. The Ocean Course has achieved the designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" by the Audubon Sanctuary System, and has recently been named "Golf Course of the Year" by the National Golf Course Owners Association.
