2012 PGA Championship hosted at Kiawah Island's Ocean CourseAugust 6, 2012
RAMSA's Ocean Course Clubhouse will play an important role at this year's PGA Championship, one of four major championships in professional golf, taking place August 9 – 12, 2012.
Our design for a new clubhouse is sensitive to the dramatic but fragile natural landscape of the eastern end of Kiawah Island. The landscape around the clubhouse is elevated significantly not only to maximize views to the 18th green and the ocean, but also act as a bridge to reconnect the front nine with the back nine. The long, low profile of the clubhouse stretches out along the dunes to fit into the naturalistic character of the links-style course. The picturesque Shingle-style massing of the clubhouse, with deep porches below and dormers above, provides an iconic image for the course and makes a suitable backdrop for an outstanding golf experience.
Tune in to the PGA Championship to see the beautiful Ocean Course and our Clubhouse.
RAMSA partner Gary Brewer worked with Mr. Stern on the project.
