A Sunset Beach vacation in North Carolina should most definitely include golfing at Ocean Ridge Plantation. The warm weather and natural surroundings make Ocean Ridge Plantation the perfect destination for active golfers who don't want to settle for just a few short months of golf at home in the northern states.
Here, your Sunset Beach vacation rental would have you located between the history of Wilmington and the excitement of Myrtle Beach, Ocean Ridge Plantation boasts one of the most diverse golf experiences on the East Coast with its four "Big Cat" courses — Lion's Paw, Panther's Run, Tiger's Eye and the newest, Leopard's Chase.
Lion's Paw is an open, 18-hole course that’s hilly and offers spectacular views of a creek valley and wetlands. It has been described as the finest work ever of designer Willard C. Byrd.
Panther's Run, an 18-hole course carved out of rolling woodlands runs along several untouched natural wildlife habitats, and offers large multiple tee areas, giving golfers of all skill levels a fair shot at making par.
Tiger's Eye, Ocean Ridge's crown jewel, is a rare treat and one of the most highly praised courses along the East Coast. This upscale, daily-fee 18-hole golf course is distinguished by dramatic 60-foot elevation changes and a stunning combination of natural waste areas, native wild flowers, waterfalls, coquina boulders, and coastal marshland. Tiger's eye is a thinking-person's course, requiring precise shot making and a reliable short game.
Leopard's Chase, Ocean Ridge's newest Big Cat course, is a par-71 course measuring more than 7,000 yards and features stunning natural vistas and dramatic elevation changes. Course architect Tim Cate, who also did Tiger's Eye, believes that Leopard's Chase will turn out even better than Tiger's Eye and that golfers will be lining up to sample the next great cat at Ocean Ridge.
