Myrtle Beach 2010 III
Adding another option to Myrtle 2010 is the Ocean Ridge Plantation courses, Lions Paw, Panther's Run, Tiger's Eye, Leopards Chase, and new for 2010, Jaguar's Lair. Five courses in North Myrtle, all close and with in 10 minutes of the golf condos we would stay in. Being North Myrtle, and a package deal, we would save a lot of money, and be able to play some fantastic courses we have never seen or played before.
Lions Paw, awarded 4 STARS in Golf Digest’s “Places To Play” has been described as the eminent Willard Byrd’s finest work. Wild and untamed, rustic and quiet, this magnificent course presents a lion’s share of adventure and challenge accompanied by nature’s best scenery. The finishing hole plays open from the tee and then flows through the trees to the green.Golf Digest also declared Lion’s Paw “The best in the Myrtle Beach area.”
Wide fairways are intertwined with various water hazards to create a scenic work of art on this challenging course. Don't be fooled by the beauty designed by the Tom Cate! Though wandering through nature preserves it tests the utmost of your ability to blend distance and precision in the perfect golfing challenge.
Tiger’s Eye Golf Links is another dazzling design by Master Architect Tim Cate. Opened in 2000 with 18 unforgettable holes, this big cat is tough to tame, featuring 60 foot elevation changes, undulating fairways, sparkling lakes and a stunning par three island green. In 2007, Golf Digest ranked it among their “Top 100 U.S. Public Courses.” Be sure to take a moment to enjoy the Tiger’s Eye clubhouse veranda and the stunning panoramic view- truly every golfer’s dream!
Named By Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 10 New Public Courses in America for 2007, Leopard’s Chase Golf Club at Ocean Ridge Plantation is the fourth Big Cat in the family of felines. This par 72 course designed by Tim Cate is as scenic as it is enjoyable to play. You will encounter forced carries, some generous landing areas and dramatic elevation changes. As you travel the 18 holes, you will also notice a varied terrain accompanied by stunning natural vistas. The tee positions will accommodate all levels of play with equal risk and reward situations to allow you the best scoring opportunities. Save your delicate touch shots for the undulating greens. The waterfall along #18 green will calm and relax you as you finish your round.
807 Acres of Ocean Isle Beach's best, Jaguars Lair (formerly Angels Trace Golf Course) is another of Clyde Johnston's masterpiece designs. Offering generous, rolling fairways, shallow bunkers, moderate mounding and large greens, Johnston has designed a Myrtle Beach golf course with playability in mind. Sparkling lakes fringed with oyster shells and tall cattails create many of the water hazards located throughout the course. Bordered by a mix of hardwoods, tall oaks, poplars, and a sprinkling of dogwoods, the South Course will put your Myrtle Beach golf group in a scoring mood.
