    Hole 1

    Par 4

    About Hole 1

    The opening hole on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort gives the participants of the 94th PGA Championship the opportunity to get off to a good start. This par-4 playing 396 yards, presents one of the narrowest fairways on the course. Still, there is plenty of room between the natural sand area that guards the right side of the fairway from tee to green and the thick dune grass that border the left. A good drive will leave a short iron into a gently undulating green tucked into a natural dune area. This hole should yield a number of birdie opportunities throughout the Championship. This hole provides excellent greenside spectator viewing areas.

    Hole 2

    Par 5

    About Hole 2

    From the back tee of this 557-yard par-5, the player is as far from the Atlantic as The Ocean Course permits, yet the view from here looks right into the rolling surf, framed by ancient live oaks. From the tee, the players will have to decide how much of the salt marsh to bite off with the tee shot. Then, depending on wind direction, they will have the opportunity to go for this elevated green set between two sand ridges with their second. Against the wind, this is a difficult three shot par-5.

    Hole 3

    Par 4

    About Hole 3

    The shortest par-4 on the course, measuring 390 yards, No. 3 may be one of the most intriguing. From an island-like tee, the players will fire across the marsh to an extremely wide fairway. Players should not be deceived by the generosity of the landing area. The best drives will find the plateau on the left side of the fairway. From here, the players will get the best look at the putting surface, elevated similarly to the fairway plateau and framed by an old live oak that guards the approach. Even a half wedge can be treacherous as the green slopes off to all sides, with marsh coming into play both long and left. Players missing this green will face a very difficult up and down.

    Hole 4

    Par 4

    About Hole 4

    This 458-yard par-4 may very well be the most difficult on the outward nine. Off the tee, players will see a very wide landing area. Then, depending on wind conditions, the second shot to a large green can be played with nearly every club in the bag, from an eight iron up. Playing against the wind, players may opt to bail out to the left of this green and try to save par with a chip or even a putt from the extended collar area.

    Hole 5

    Par 3

    About Hole 5

    After four holes to the east, The Ocean Course turns back to the west for its first par-3, measuring 188 yards. With the Stono River Inlet and Folly Beach to the players back, they will survey an hourglass shaped green running away diagonally from the right. A large natural sand area runs from the tee to green ending in a steep face that cuts into the middle of the hourglass. Players must hit the appropriate portion of this largest green on the golf course or face a very difficult two putt. This hole provides excellent greenside spectator viewing areas with the extended view of the tee shots at the sixth.

    Hole 6

    Par 4

    About Hole 6

    Three wind-pruned live oaks frame the far side of the fairway on this 480-yard par-4. The perfect drive is one directly at the center oak with a slight draw, eliminating trouble in the form of a natural sand area and small pond to the left. Players will play an approach to a green open in front, but protected left and right by more sand. Expect to see many approach shots finding the center portion of this narrow, deep green.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 7

    Par 5

    About Hole 7

    Unlike the first par-5 where caution will temper most second shots, wind conditions will determine the strategy for the tee shot as players must decide whether to carry a natural dune area that intrudes into the fairway from the right or play left of it. Once that decision is made, the second shot can be fired at a slightly elevated green that is open in the front. The 579 yard seventh will be an exciting tournament hole as spectators will be able to see a number of the players making a run at eagle

  • Testimonial

    Hole 8

    Par 3

    About Hole 8

    The 198-yard par-3 eighth is a seemingly simple hole that will become more difficult the further the pin is cut into the green as this elevated green, framed by tall live oaks just off its front left corner, becomes narrower as it extends away from the tee. Since any shot missing long or right will find the sand, players will attack the front pin locations and play to the center of the green when the pin moves back.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 9

    Par 4

    About Hole 9

    A strong 494-yard par-4 closes out the front nine. A wide fairway sloping down from the right makes driving length more important than direction. The putting surface is open in the front but presents plenty of tough up-and-down chances from an assortment of grassy swale and deep sand areas both left and right. The green at the ninth is another great spectator viewing area.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 10

    Par 4

    About Hole 10

    The inward nine of the Championship will continue to the west with a 447-yard par-4. A drive down the left-center to the crest of the fairway will set up a second shot to a green set down into the dunes. Players will be faced with a large sand area to the left front of the green and a deeper, steep faced sand area to the back. Spectators will be in a prime viewing area by the tenth green, as they will catch action from both the eleventh and seventeenth as well.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 11

    Par 5

    About Hole 11

    The 593-yard par-5 eleventh will be a tough test for even the best players in the world. Except in extreme downwind conditions, this hole will be unreachable in two shots for most of the field, thus, the key to this spectacular par five is an accurate lay-up. Off the tee, players must avoid several deep sand areas right of the fairway. For the second shot, players will be wary of getting too close to the green on the lay up as it is better to lay back on the right hand side taking the sand area left out of play. A good lay-up will leave a pitch to a relatively flat but exposed and elevated putting surface set high atop a dune ridge and guarded in front by more deep sand areas. If players negotiate the tee shot, hit an accurate lay-up avoiding the natural sand areas lurking left and right and hit an accurate pitch shot, birdies are a definite possibility.

    Hole 12

    Par 4

    About Hole 12

    The 412-yard par-4 twelfth encompasses the widest fairway on the course which gives way to one of the narrowest approaches. Many players may choose a three wood off the tee to avoid a downhill lie for the second shot and a steep drop off on the right. A good drive here sets up a downhill second to a green guarded closely on the right by a canal, with the dunes and thick native grasses framing the left and rear. Though narrow, the approach is open in the front, with a rolling collar area providing the players some room to miss left. A new tee has been added measuring 300 yards, which could make for an exciting risk/reward tee shot on the weekend. This greenside spectator viewing area also provides action of the thirteenth and fifteenth.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 13

    Par 4

    About Hole 13

    The thirteenth may be the most difficult hole on the inward nine. The canal on this monster 497-yard par-4 will certainly come into play on the tee shots. The players must decide just how far down the canal they will try to carry, setting up a demanding approach. The canal continues down the entire right side of the hole, however, the approach is open to the run up shot, but guarded by two deep sand areas on the left. Don’t be surprised to see shots missing this green to the left. This is as far west as the course reaches and is yet another prime spectator viewing area.

    Hole 14

    Par 3

    About Hole 14

    Since the fifth hole, the course has been playing to the west. But at No. 14, The Ocean Course turns back to the east and plays directly along the beach with five of the most dramatic finishing holes in golf. Although not as notorious as No. 17, this 238-yard par-3 will certainly play a major factor in determining the outcome of the Championship. A tee shot missing this severely exposed and elevated green will leave a severe uphill chip or pitch to save par. An extremely deep and dangerous sand area, bordering the left of the green, will also cause difficulties. From the tee, the rear portion of the putting surface is hidden from the players view and the green slopes from front to back making this hole play more difficult down-wind with many shots rolling over the green into a huge, deep collection area. Wind will also affect putts, as the putting surface is the most exposed on the golf course. This is perhaps the most beautiful golf hole on The Ocean Course but also one of the most treacherous.

    Hole 15

    Par 4

    About Hole 15

    The 444-yard par-4 fifteenth is a seemingly straightforward hole that often gets overlooked, much to the player’s peril. The tee shot must find the fairway to set up a mid-iron into the green set down into a natural dune area making it difficult to determine wind speed and direction. The green runs diagonally to the left away from the player with natural sand areas left and back right.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 16

    Par 5

    About Hole 16

    A straight away 581 yard par-5, sixteen will require the players to carry the tee shot over a pond to reach a terraced fairway that is higher to the right side. A long shallow natural sand area guards the second shot to the right, with another sand area, this one much deeper, guarding the left side of the green which is perched high on a dune ridge. Downwind this hole will provide a great chance for birdie or eagle with many players going for the green in two. Those that successfully navigate the extremely deep and dangerous sand area guarding the left side of this green will set themselves up for a late charge. This hole could provide tremendous drama down the closing stretch of the Championship.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 17

    Par 3

    About Hole 17

    The Sunday tee shot on this 223 yard par-3 may very well decide who will hoist the Wanamaker trophy and be crowned the 94th PGA Champion. The target appears narrow, and is fiercely guarded by water short and to the right, with two deep sand areas to the left. Players that play this hole even par for the championship will certainly be rewarded and keep themselves in contention. The seventeenth provides yet another prime spectator viewing area with the tenth and eighteenth in close proximity.

  • Testimonial

    Hole 18

    Par 4

    About Hole 18

    Still with the Atlantic just to the right, the 501-yard par-4 eighteenth finishing hole is one of the strongest on the course. Driving to a fairway that rolls up, and then falls away to the right, the best drives will hug the right side of the fairway. Longer players may have a significant advantage if they challenge the right side, carry the crest of the hill and reach the lower level of the fairway resulting in a much shorter second shot. The elevated green is open from the right and runs away to the back left. Into the wind, most players will not be able to reach the bottom of the fairway slope and they will face a 200 plus yard second shot to a narrow well-protected green. The wind will determine whether players fire at the flag with mid irons or simply try to hit the green with long irons or fairway metals.
