Leopard's Chase a great addition to Ocean Ridge Plantation on Grand Strand
Most average golfers will tell you they want a “challenge,” but when asked to name their favorite courses, they usually end up naming layouts wider than Oprah.
Such is the case with the newest course at the Ocean Ridge Plantation, Leopard’s Chase. Leopard’s Chase is an excellent design by Tim Cate, but at least three other golfers told me they liked the plantation’s other star course, Tiger’s Eye better.
Tiger’s Eye, you see, has wide fairways, where you can bomb away to your heart’s content. Not that I don’t like that. In fact, I love it.
But, there are times when you want a little more finesse. Leopard’s Chase is a visually deceptive course off the tee, with a plethora of hazards squeezing fairways. However, if you pick the right tees, the landing areas are a lot wider than they look from the tee box.
It has a lot of other things going for it – interesting green complexes, wetlands, natural waste areas that also serve as cart paths – and elevates the whole plantation.
Look for the full review coming soon.
