Myrtle Beach Golfaway

Ocean Ridge Plantation

Ocean Ridge, located on the northern end of Myrtle Beach’s golf zone, is home to the famous “Big Cat” courses: Lions Paw, Panthers Run, Tigers Eye, Leopards Chase, and Jaguars Liar. All of the Ocean Ridge courses are still very competitively priced.

Lions Paw
Awarded 4 STARS by Golf Digest, “Places to Play”. Lions Paw is one of those wild and untamed golf courses that you have to play, Golf Digest also declared Lion’s Paw “The best in the Myrtle Beach area”. A spectacular layout, Lions Paw is one of a family of famous Big Cats at Ocean Ridge Plantation.

The front nine includes a traditional layout featuring tall Carolina Pines and some nice natural elevation changes. The back nine is definitely a links-style feel of a Scottish course, wide open fairways with lots of plant life, no trees to protect you from the sometimes windy conditions.

Panther’s Run
Architect Tim Cate has created a spectacular layout. Panther’s Run meanders through a huge, beautiful nature preserve. Featuring generous landing areas off the tee and new, immaculately manicured MiniVerde greens. This Myrtle Beach area beauty is a fabulous combination of modern design and the best that nature has to offer.

Panther’s Run has also been named in Golf Digest’s prestigious “Places to Play” Guide and was also included in their list of the “Top 50 of Myrtle Beach”. The pro shop has also been well recognized and has been ranked as one of “America’s Top 100 Golf Shops” for four consecutive years.

Tiger’s Eye
Tiger’s Eye is astonishing; this fearsome feline features a stunning combination of natural waste areas, native grasses, wildflowers, and pine and oak trees with water features that include marshlands and waterfalls. The golf course is by no means flat and subtle undulations in the fairways present you with a variety of interesting lies.

Dramatic elevation changes require critical attention to club selection at this remarkable Myrtle Beach area golf course. A thinking man’s course, Tiger’s Eye demands precision approach shots and a deft touch on and around the greens. Tiger’s Eye was ranked among Golf Digest’s “Top 100 Public Golf Courses in America” for 2007-2008.

Leopard’s Chase
The newest of the Big Cat family and named by Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 10 Best New Public Courses in America in 2007, Leopard’s Chase is destined to take its deserving place among the truly elite courses in the Myrtle Beach area.

One of the many unique characteristics of this Tim Cate creation is his masterful use of the natural and man-made water features that appear throughout this stunning layout, with the most spectacular of them all on the 18th hole, where the undulating green is fronted by a magnificent cascading waterfall.
