ResortQuest's Kiawah Island Accommodations Open Early for Booking During 2012 PGA Championship Dates

Accommodations Available on Kiawah Island Range From Comfortable Single-Bedroom Villas to Grand Ocean-View Homes

KIAWAH ISLAND, SC--(Marketwire - Sep 9, 2011) - Only four golf courses have ever hosted The PGA of America's three major championships -- the PGA Championship™, the Ryder Cup™ and the Senior PGA Championship™. In August 2012, The Ocean Course™ on Kiawah Island, S.C. will become the fifth such distinguished course.

ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, a leading provider of full-service vacation condominiums and home rentals in the U.S., announced today that its accommodations on Kiawah Island are now available to book during the 2012 PGA Championship dates. The Championship will kick off on Thursday, Aug. 9 through Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012, at The Ocean Course Clubhouse, 1000 Ocean Course Drive, Kiawah.

The 94th PGA Championship will attract international attention to the dramatic ocean views and unpredictable Atlantic winds that define The Ocean Course. The renowned Pete Dye-signature course boasts 10 holes directly alongside the ocean, plus eight more parallel to those, giving this links-style layout the distinction of having more seaside holes than any other course in the northern hemisphere.

"We anticipate the demand for lodging on Kiawah Island during next year's PGA Championship will be great," said Ian Harris, director of sales and marketing in the Charleston region for ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals. "ResortQuest is a true hospitality company, dedicated to exceeding guests' needs. That's why we're opening these 2012 dates early in order to allow guests the best opportunity to find and book their ideal rental accommodations."

A leading provider of premier vacation rentals in the Charleston area, ResortQuest professionally manages accommodations on Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island and Isle of Palms ranging from comfortable single-bedroom villas to grand oceanfront homes. Kiawah is a private gated community featuring celebrity-designed golf courses and more than 30 miles of paved bike trails. The private island of Seabrook has recently enjoyed a $31 million renovation and is one of the only places on the East Coast where you can horseback ride on the beach. Bohicket Marina, a deep-water, full-service marina, is located adjacent to the entrance of Seabrook's security gate.

More world-class golf courses are found on Isle of Palms, as is a full-service marina and Front Beach at the Isle of Palms, with its assortment of waterfront restaurants, boutiques and bars.

The PGA Championship™ is one of golf's four major championships and stands as the premier event administered by The PGA of America. Founded in 1916, The PGA of America is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the game of golf while continuing to enhance the standards of the profession.
