About The Course

Home to the 2021 PGA tour, the infamous Ocean Course at Kiawah Island boasts not only incredible views but a true test of skill. With a 155 slope rating — the maximum difficulty allowed by the USGA’s rating system — players will prepare to tackle nearly 8,000-yards of green all the while hoping that the winds are in their favor that day.

According to Golf Magazine, “The Ocean Course, designed by Pete Dye, features a series of remarkable ocean vistas down the final nine holes. It was the ocean that inspired Dye’s wife Alice to recommend raising the green complexes to provide players with better views of the water. Ultimately, the Ocean Course presents one of the game’s great challenges in one of its most awe-striking venues, a 7,876-yard, par-72 test of both mettle and might.”

The Ocean Course requires the use of one caddy per foursome. The fee for the caddy is included in your registration fee (*Players are welcome to tip their caddy on the day of the event.)

Please note: The Ocean Course is Cart Path Only.  If you need the use of your cart beyond the cart path you will need to provide a letter from your physician verifying this necessity and submit this document prior to the day of the event.

All proceeds from the event will go toward our free health care services for uninsured adults who live or work across the Barrier Islands or serve Downtown Charleston’s Hospitality Industry. Click here for full details and registration.
