Described as golf architect Willard Byrd’s penultimate design, Lion’s Paw Golf Links has developed into one of the premier rankings from several national golf publications. Golf Digest has ranked this course as a four-star “Places to Play”, as well as a routine member of the magazine’s “Top 50 Myrtle Beach Golf Courses.” Golf Shop Operations also rated the Lion’s Paw clubhouse it shares with Panther’s Run as one of “America’s 100 Best Golf Shops” four consecutive years. Home to Tamer’s Lounge, players get more than simply 18 holes of golf.

Once on the playing surface, the impression only grows. Featuring MiniVerde greens protected by deep sugar-sanded bunkers, Lion’s Paw also put to use an open, hilly landscape to help separate itself from the other Big Cat courses at Ocean Ridge Plantation. Exhilarating scenery accompanies. Fifteen holes incorporate some touch of water, and some of those creeks and lake beds are lined with native oyster shells. Measuring as long as 7,003 yards or as short as 5,363 yards, Lion’s Paw offers a broad range of playability for all skill levels.

The highlight of the course is the ultra-difficult par-4 No. 4. The 428-yard hole requires a stellar tee shot onto a mounded fairway. Succeed in missing a bunker and the water on the right, and the approach opens ever so slightly before funneling back down toward the green. The back nine opens with arguably the course’s most strategic hole. No. 10, a 400-yard par 4, includes a stream that cuts through the hole not once, but twice. Miss the fairway landing area, and the strokes can add up quickly.

Located just across the state line in Ocean Isle Beach, N.C., Lion’s Paw is just a short drive north on U.S. 17 from downtown Myrtle Beach.

January conditions were excellent. This is the third course we have played coming in to Myrtle Beach from Va. Four hours from the Va line and 40 minutes from hotel. All three courses have been playable for our single digit handicappers to our 20 handicappers. Looking forward to playing Tiger's Eye on our next trip in February.

Hard to see difference between fairways and rough from tee which made aiming tough. Rough was way too high. Lost balls just steps off the fairway. Layout was good. Would rate higher if fairway and rough issues were resolved.

Played on a cold windy day and that made it really tough, as wind seemed to always be hurting rather than helping. Dormant rough was very dry and made for tough shots.
