One of the four amazing “big cats” courses at Ocean Ridge Plantation in Ocean Island Beach, NC, Panther’s Run features wide fairways that twist and turn around water features to create some extraordinary vistas. As are the other Ocean Ridge courses – Lion’s Paw and Tiger’s Eye and Leopard’s Chase – Panther’s Run is a Tim Cate design that will test your ability to blend precision with distance.
From the back tees, Panther’s Run measures 7,086 yards, but large multi-tee areas provide golfers of all skill levels an opportunity for an enjoyable round.
The course opened in 1994, and in 2010 the putting surfaces at Panther’s Run Golf Links were converted to MiniVerde™ ultra-dwarf greens, which offers an unmatched combination of smooth, consistent playability and disease-resistant, heat-tolerant durability.
Panther’s Run and Lion’s Paw share a clubhouse that includes the Tamer’s Restaurant and an award-winning pro shop. This impressive, well-appointed store offers a wide range of golf apparel and equipment, with a friendly staff of professionals who are more than ready to help you improve your game. Tamers Restaurant features a full-service bar, serves delicious meals, and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Tamer’s also offers full-service catering for all your party and engagement needs.
