Lions Paw is the first of the "Big Cat" courses that opened. Designed by Willard Byrd, and heralded as his finest work, Lions Paw is very playable for everyone. Lions Paw is more of a hilly course that runs along adjoining wetlands. The new greens (replaced in 2011 with L-93 Bentgrass) are well bunkered with deep sugar sand. Measuring 7,003 yards from the tips and 6,457 from the mid tees Lions Paw will challenge everyone in your group. Accuracy is important with water coming into play on 15 holes. Ask about our "Big Cat" package to enjoy the very best pricing.

Beautiful Course
Another great course at Ocean Ridge Plantation. This course was in great this spring when we played it during our annual golf trip. It was challenging, but not impossible to score well if you can place your tee shots. Would absolutely recommend the 4-course Big Cats Package to those looking to play awesome courses without paying the high prices.
