Virtual Sports Zone golfers get to play games on a legendary track when they step to the tees on High Definition Golf’s replica version of The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
The South Carolina property is the fourth course to have hosted each of the PGA of America’s major championships. The beach-side layout has also been the site of the 2007 Senior PGA, the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 1997 and 2003 World Cups, the 2001 UBS Cup and 2005 PGA National Championship. In 2012, Kiawah Island Golf Resort hosted the 94th PGA Championship.
The Ocean Course has more seaside holes than any other layout in the Northern Hemisphere – 10 flank the Atlantic with the other eight run parallel to those. It made its big screen debut in November 2000 when the movie The Legend of Bagger Vance starring Will Smith, Matt Damon and Charlize Theron was released.
