Very nice greens and interesting holes

They just overseeded the tees and fairways were thin and not cut yet because the new grass was so young and damp, but the layout was great and had a blast playing.

Tiger's Eye Back to good condition

Played Tigers Eye on Friday. Weather was perfect 72 degrees. Love the layout of the course except for the par 5 15th hole. Course was back to good condition. Greens were medium speed and in great shape. Fairways in great shape. Bunkers were recently shaped up and the sand was firm. You could tell they had spent time and money getting the course back in shape. Will play again soon.

Great Layout

This course has long been one of my favorite layouts in the area but sadly conditions have gone down hill the past few years. However, currently with the overseed it’s as good as I’ve experienced here in quite some time. Tees and fairways are good and the greens have some speed to them again. Still a little bit rough around the edges but overall very solid. Really hope they can maintain conditions here as it’s a very enjoyable course to play.

Big Cat courses

First day played Leopards Chase. Layout is spectacular. Fairways ok on most holes. Rough not great. Greens really bad. Very disappointing. If course was in good shape, would be great. Hard summer, rain, labor help, we were told, were reasons for conditions. People there were great however. Wednesday and Thursday we played Tigers Eye. Great layout. Fairways a bit long, but good. Greens really good. Bunkers mostly good. Overall really good. Staff awesome! Great people. All deserve raises!

Friday morning played Lions Paw. Front nine was terrible. Grass in fairways and rough long and unkept. Greens terrible. Back nine better. Like two different courses. Layout is good. Again not sure why it is unkept. In afternoon, we went back to Tigers Eye. Again, great people at this course. Told them about Lions Paw, and they let us play Tigers Eye again for free. This was very much appreciated by myself and my son. Again great people here, and I highly recommend Tigers Eye. Note to the company that owns these courses. Please give raises to everyone at Tigers Eye.. Great people!

LA LA Land

They are asking 85.00 to play Tigers Eye today and their hot deal is 73.00. I think I am doing a public service to warn you not to spend your money there.. Tiger's Eye is a has been golf course that was once a wonderful and great golf course and facility They look like they are on their last legs. The course(s) are no where in remotely good playing conditions and all the courses in the area are much better than the continued deteriorating conditions at Tiger's Eye and the other Cat courses. What were once gems are now sad reminders of mismanagement and total lack of care. You walk into their nice clubhouse bar and grill and cannot get a draft beer or hot food. and that tells the tale of the fiscal situation they must be in. I have read reviews of Tigers and could not believe it until I played Saturday. Management continues to make excuses , weather, heat, etc. but the other courses in the area seem to overcome it. It is pretty obvious they are in bad fiscal and management shape.

We sincerely apologize for the conditions you described in your review. We definitely experienced a difficult stretch during the late summer and early fall and we greatly apologize for that. We certainly tried to work with any and all guests who had any issues during this challenging period and hopefully that was the case with your group as well. If not, again, I apologize and ask that you reach back out to us directly (ask for Bill Long) and we would appreciate the opportunity to work with you on this matter. On the brighter side, the addition of a new Director of Agronomy with a tremendous amount of experience and training (Along with a stronger support staff) has already led to significant overall improvements to all The Big Cats courses in just a few weeks. The positive buzz at the counter in the past week has been so exciting to hear and we are looking forward to steady progress throughout the remainder of 2020 and beyond. We hope you will give us another opportunity to make amends for the unsatisfactory conditions you experienced on your previous visit. Thank you for your past patronage and we hope to see you again soon.

Fair Course Layout but Conditions could be better

I have played this course a few times before. We returned because the course has a very fair layout for various levels of golfers. I played in early August and the condition of the course was good but not as good as it ad been in past years. I returned again in September and was disappointed in the condition of the course. Both the rough and fairways needed to be mowed. Greens were mowed but slow. We did have a spell of very hot weather that may have impacted the mowing in previous weeks.

Thank you very much for your review of your recent visit. We take all feedback seriously and will do our best to take any and all suggestions into consideration in an effort to improve our operation. We definitely experienced a rough stretch during the late summer and early fall this year, due to many (mostly external) factors, but we have also definitely made considerable progress since your visit. We have a new and highly qualified Director of Agronomy and he has added a strong support staff to his team. the progress they have made in just a few weeks is very encouraging and we are excited about what is in store for the remainder of 2020 and beyond. We hope you will check out our progress in the near future. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.

Great layout......cut the grass

Layout is excellent. Fair but challenging. Greens were sadly, very slow. Fairways needed to be cut. Worker told me they are afraid of losing the greens because of the heat (first week of Sept). ????? Cut everything and this place would be a joy to play.

We apologize for the speed of the greens and height of the fairway on your recent visit. This was definitely and issue for us during that period. Our new Director of Agronomy and his team are dedicated to improving these types of conditions and actually have made great strides in just a few weeks to do so. We believe the conditions you would experience now are greatly improved from the date of your round. Hopefully you will give us another opportunity to provide a more satisfactory playing experience in the future. We hope to see you soon.

A Gem that needs TLC

Tigers Eye has the potential to be "the" must play course in Myrtle Beach. The layout is excellent. the scenery is very nice. The wildlife you may see is second to none. The major drawback of Tiger's is no secret and that it needs an influx of manpower and money to get it into a five star or even a tru 4 star rating, While the conditions of the greens have improved over the last year or so, it is still not up to par insofar as condition. The layout of the course keeps its rating as high as it is now. If Tiger's Eye was in 5 star rating shape, they could charge whatever they wanted in season and pack them in. Unfortunately, that is not the case now.

Fairways covered with high weeds the entire course appears to be overgrown with weeds and unkept
A beautiful layout and I have played here many times but played with people who live there and were told that there are financial problems

Tiger's Eye was distracted.

A very nice layout under the influence of too much rain and wind from TS isaias and summer showers. The course conditions have not been attended to because of weather, but still in decent shape. The greens were a little slow, but manageable. The fairways were in need of blowing, and the tee boxes need a trim. I was playing well despite this, and enjoyed the course and the round. I'll be back when it dries out. Pro shop staff was huffy, and the starter short on personality. Thank you to the helpful snack bar lady, and very friendly and personable ranger!

Must play

We were met by a very friendly and accommodating staff, and everyone from the front door to the finish made us feel welcome. The design / layout was great. Hazards and penalty areas are appropriately placed and fair. There are plenty of tee choices to accommodate any skill level. We will definitely be back!

Disappointing, needs maintenance

Has potential to be a really nice course but it currently needs help. Greens may not have been cut the day we played and were slow, but also needed rolling as they were bumpy. Fairways were good, but tees were bare in too many places and had not been cut day we played, there were a few traps in good condition but most were bad, washed out in places and in need of sand. Staff was friendly and helpful, and layout suggests this was and could be a very good track.
