PGA of America, Nikki Haley, Kiawah Island Golf Resort Unveil 2021 PGA Championship Premium Hospitality Experiences for Charleston-Area Companies
The PGA of America, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Kiawah Island Golf Resort hosted a group of area business and community leaders at the historic Riviera Theater in downtown Charleston on Oct. 9 to unveil hospitality experience packages for the 2021 PGA Championship at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
The PGA Championship is golf’s only all-professional major championship and perennially features the strongest and deepest international field of players. To be contested May 17-23, the 2021 event will be the second hosted at Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s famed Ocean Course, nine years after Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy won there in 2012. That event generated upward of $193 million in estimated economic impact for the state of South Carolina and attracted more than 50,000 out-of-town visitors to the Greater Charleston Area.
The current portfolio of hospitality experience packages for businesses and individuals range from 50 to 100-person Oceanfront Chalets along the 18th fairway to 25 guest skyboxes around the 17th green. All packages include premium catering for the four Championship Round days and open bar service. Chalet packages along the 18th fairway also provide opportunities for companies to customize their interior space and design handcrafted menus.
Haley, who also served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations until the end of 2018, is committed to supporting the event’s hospitality experience efforts as a Co-Chair of the 2021 PGA Championship Council.
“We couldn't be more excited to welcome the PGA Championship back to South Carolina,” Haley said. “The 2021 Championship at Kiawah Island Golf Resort will be all about creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences for our guests. We've got the best golfers in the world, unmatched ocean views, smiling South Carolina faces and, most importantly, top-of-the-line hospitality experiences to offer our businesses and fans.”
