The Ocean Ridge Big Cats Golf Information

Ocean Ridge Plantation is home to five championship golf courses that are collectively known as the “Big Cats,” making the community a preferred choice for golf lovers. We’ve collected information about each of the Ocean Ridge golf courses to summarize the most prominent features of each.

The five Big Cats offer challenging play on award-winning designed courses. Newly renovated greens areas now feature L-93 bentgrass at Leopard’s Chase, MiniVerde greens at Lion’s Paw, TifEagle greens at Tiger’s Eye and Panther’s Run. The Ocean Ridge Big Cats aren’t content to rest on their laurels, either. Jaguar’s Lair is under a major redesign and redevelopment to prove the committment to keeping the Big Cats family reputation.

Course Summary

Lion’s Paw

Equal parts rustic, wild and serene, this magnificent course presents a lion’s share of adventure and breathtaking scenery. Water shots and deep sandy bunkers are outlined by tall hardwoods that have long surveyed this wild landscape. A truly coastal Carolina course from the white sands of the bunkers to the oyster shells lining lakes and creeks, to the beautiful wetlands visible from every hole; Lion’s Paw is deservedly one of the Grand Strand’s most popular golf courses.

Tiger's Eye at Ocean Ridge | Suzanne Polino REALTOR

Course Summary

Tiger’s Eye

Distinguished by dramatic elevation changes reminiscent of North Carolina sand dunes. Tiger’s Eye is a thinking player’s course; it requires precision shotmaking and a reliable short game. It features a stunning combination of natural waste areas, native grasses, fields of wildflowers, towering pine and oak trees, and such water features as marshlands and waterfalls.

As a par 72, 18-hole course, it offers forced carries, dramatic elevation changes and generous landing areas. You’ll notice a masterful use of natural and man-made water features throughout the course as well as well manicured L-93 Bentgrass greens.

Course Summary

Panther’s Run

Situated on the edge of a nature preserve is the Big Cat known as Panther’s Run. This $10 million course tests a golfer’s ability to avoid marshlands, wetlands, and other hazards. These 18 holes are unlike any other course on The Grand Strand. Sweeping Tifsport Bermuda fairways twist and turn up and down presenting a variety of challenges along scenic water features. Large, notoriously slick, G-2 Bentgrass greens demand cautious putting. With 40-acres of wildflowers, 60-foot elevation changes, an island par-3 and a waterfall, it’s easy to see why Panther’s Run has a reputation for quality play and impeccable grounds maintenance.

  • Nominated by Golf Digest as one of the Best New Golf Courses in America
  • Cited by Golf for Women magazine as one of the Top 100 Fairways
