Ocean Ridge - Lions Paw

Address: 6877 Highway 17 , Sunset Beach, NC 28469
  • Course Difficulty: Moderate/Difficult


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.
