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.

I played this course a few years ago in the spring and it was in great shape. Playing in August, you could tell it needed a break. The greens were OK shape but in need of maintenance. I expect with fall approaching, they will get this course back to where it was in the spring.

Of the 4 courses in this complex, Tiger's Eye is the most "secluded," i.e., no houses on some holes.<br/> However, was disappointed in condition of greens...1 and 2 were really scarred...conditions got better on other holes, but some other greens were also in need of repair.

Otherwise, pace of play was great...looked like no one was on the course...maybe there was a reason (!). Fairways were ok as well.<br/> Got a break on the rate, but seemed to much to me based on rates at other courses there.<br/> Based on the more scenic aspects of the course, I would recommend it, just beware of the conditions of some of the greens.

I played four courses at this facility. This one definitely had the best staff. I am not sure why as I understand that some of the staff actually rotate between the four locations. Maybe just the day I hit this one, but the staff was superb compared to the Lions/Panther staff. From the bag drop to the cart return every staff member showed a great "servants heart" and worked to make our day an enjoyable one. On this particular day, the course won in a big way, but the experience was great. The course was in excellent condition in every aspect. If you are looking for a course to play, definitely add this to your list.

Tiger's Eye is one of five courses in the group known as the "Big Cats" on Ocean Ridge Plantation in southern North Carolina near the South Carolina state line. It is also, in my estimation, the most scenic of the five in that many holes are bordered by water and natural areas rather than homes.<br/> There are three club houses from which the courses begin and end, each are elegant and welcoming to both members and guests. The staff are top notch and visitors are respected as though they too were members.<br/> The Tiger's Eye course, on the day we played (we played all 18, how can you not play nine if playing the entire course?) was in tip top shape for November in the Coastal Plain of North Carolina. The fairways were recently over seeded with winter rye grass which by now I am sure has given green tint to the dormant Bermuda grass.<br/> The greens are 'mini verde' and not only quick but smooth as glass, you can almost see your reflection, running about a 14 on the Stimp Meter the day we played.<br/> During your next visit to the Myrtle Beach Golf area be sure to make plans to try on the "Big Cats" you will be glad you did.

We were literally the first group out, so we didn't wait on any shots. I played the back tees (saber tooth). Very nice course, challenging and in very good shape. Practice range was not well maintained - not reflection of the course, though. Overall, a great value and would definitely play again. Steeper discounts if you play the other 'cat' courses.
