Lion’s Paw

Golf Links

Lion’s Paw may just be the most threatening of the Big Cat golf courses of Ocean Ridge Plantation. This award-winning course is a Willard Byrd design and has been announced to be one of his greatest golfing creations. This 7,003 yard course has a 74.0 rating and a slope of 132. Lion’s Paw emits the type of adventure and majesty that you would associate with the fascinating animal it’s named after.

This course is full of surprises, with water lurking at every corner and sudden elevation changes. Mounds and sand traps also wait to pounce and slow your pace. Golf Digest included Lion’s Paw in the highly rated “Top 50 in Myrtle Beach” list of courses in the area.
