396 yards, Par 4
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 waste 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. Excellent greenside spectator viewing area.
