Tiger’s Eye at Ocean Ridge Plantation

360 Ocean Ridge Pkwy SW, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina 28469 (800) 233-1801

Description

About Tiger’s Eye at Ocean Ridge Plantation

Offering a beautiful combination of natural areas, native foliage and constantly shifting fairways, Tiger's Eye Golf Course is a must-play course just north of the state border in North Carolina. With 18 unforgettable signature holes, Tiger's Eye was rated No. 3 on the Grand Strand in Golf Digest's "America's 100 Greatest Courses."


Modeled after Pinehurst, the undulating Penn G2 bent grass  greens at Tiger’s Eye are fast-paced and resemble the look of warped plywood. The greens also feature pins that are guarded by obstacles or obscured from view.  There are also many elevation changes which are reminiscent of the sandhills in North Carolina.


The natural beauty of this course is a great reminder to golfers of their location in the South Carolina Lowcountry. With mature long-leaf pine groves and forest lining the fairways, golfers can test their skills at challenging holes all while being immersed in the breathtaking surrounding.


While all golfers are invited to play at this public, daily fee course, Tiger’s Eye is definitely a course for thinkers. With all of the obstacles and elevation changes throughout Tiger’s Eye, thinking is key to making precision shots and a short game.


Tim Cate’s layout featuring wide fairways, waste bunkers, and bentgrass greens has been praised and has landed Tiger’s Eye a ranking as one of  “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.”

"This is a nice course, which has had a good ranking. I would give it only 3.5/5 on my visit due to the poor condition of many of the bent grass greens. There were patches with no grass on some of the greens. This is the first time I have played this course. Undoubtedly, the hot nights over the past few months have made maintaining these bent greens very difficult. One of the sister courses, Leopard's Chase, was played on the same day, and their bent greens were in better shape."

"Great track, really enjoyed the layout and the course conditions. My only critique is the website did not (or maybe could not) indicate that it would be cart-path only. This made it less enjoyable because the yardage is not well marked. Otherwise, we found this to be a very good course. We will return."

"Great layout, but the greens were in bad shape. Course should not have been open for play or they should let you know of the conditions before you make a tee time. "

"Again...too wet! Worse than Long Bay...not the fault of maintenance, just bad timing on our part. Greens were a bit on the slow side, but still in good shape. Fairway was almost unplayable on most holes. Chipping difficult due to the wet grounds."
