Ocean Ridge Unleashes Ferocious Feline with Leopard’s Chase

By • Jun 15, 2009

Leopard's ChaseLeopard’s Chase Golf Club is one of the newly unleashed “Big Cats”. Located at Ocean Ridge Plantation in gorgeous Sunset Beach, North Carolina, it is also conveniently close to all the fun and entertainment of nearby Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

This outstanding Tim Cate creation features a significant number of holes that require forced carries over water or wetlands, most greens are heavily guarded and require strategic shot making. Cate has cleverly utilized native grasses, plants and natural rock formations to provide some of the most scenic landscapes seen on any golf course, in the Myrtle Beach area.

Large level tee boxes, offer an invitation to lush fairways that are strategically bunkered, while huge, immaculate undulated L-93 Bent Grass greens await your approach, club selection and strategy are paramount on this golf course, to say it is a thinking man’s golf course is an understatement.

The eighteenth hole is an intimidating yet majestic masterpiece; this is one par four you won’t soon forget. Playing four hundred and thirty nine yards off the back tees, with water and bunkers down the left and right side of the fairway, it definitely requires some threading off the tee. Assuming you find the fairway, one is still faced with a daunting second shot into a well guarded, heavily contoured green, good luck… and enjoy!

The golf course offers five sets of tees, the blacks measure an astounding 7155 yards, the blues measure 6645 yards, the whites measure 6165 yards, the gold’s measure 5458 yards and the reds measure 4872 yards respectively.

Architect, Tim Cate’s design is delightfully captivating, and although long and challenging, this ferocious feline, must be played to be appreciated, on your next visit to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, we challenge you to garner all your courage, bring the big stick, ignore the growls and take on the new cat.
