Ocean Ridge plans to add fourth course

SUNSET BEACH, N.C. — Ocean Ridge Plantation, a 2,000-acre residential community here that features three championship golf courses, is planning to add a fourth course, according to director of golf Tom Plankers. The course will be accompanied by an upscale practice facility and a golf school designed to rival any along the Southeast coast. Construction is expected to begin in 2002.

The Ocean Ridge courses currently feature the three “Big Cats” – Lion’s Paw, Panther’s Run and Tiger’s Eye. “The additions will continue to enhance Ocean Ridge’s growing reputation as one of the best golf facilities along the Grand Strand and throughout the southeast region,” said Plankers.

The course will be designed by Tim Cate who will be working on his seventh solo project which includes the Panther’s Run and Tiger’s Eye layouts. The Lion’s Paw Golf Links was designed by course architect Willard Byrd.
