Panther’s Run Golf Links

Panther’s Run Golf Links is the friendliest of the four Big Cats at Ocean Ridge Plantation, but it’s by no means a pushover.

Tim Cate’s first solo design, Panther’s Run plays through a nature preserve, challenging players to avoid or hit over the water on 16 of 18 holes. The course has enjoyed popular and critical acclaim, earning 3.5 stars in Golf Digest’s Place to Play rankings and being ranked among the "Top 50 in Myrtle Beach."

Among the most memorable holes are the par 4 15th and 18th, which bookend an outstanding closing stretch. The 15th only plays 357 yards from the white tees, but water runs along the length of the right side of the hole and pinches the fairway near the green. Tee shots that land on the right side of the fairway will force a short, knee-knocking approach over water. 

The closing hole is a straight par 4, but it plays 380 yards from the white tees and the approach is all over water. It’s a hole that has decided a lot of bets over the years.  

After finishing a round, golfers need to enjoy the clubhouse Panther’s Run shares with Lion’s Paw as it has been ranked among "America’s 100 Best Golf Shops."

Women friendly

Straight forward course. Wide open. Back 9 is beautiful.
by David - 07/21/2015
Greens were in nice shape as was the whole back nine. The front side was really dry and the fairways & rough are pretty burned out. It's a fun course to play.
by Gervais (Longueuil, QC) - 10/27/2014
Excellent! Green cleaned without humidity even early in the morning. Speed of the green excellent.
by Adam (Matthews, NC) - 07/22/2012
Starter was a jerk, acted like we were in the way, not paying customers. The course does not have enough carts. We had to walk several hundred yards to the driving range and were late teeing off waiting for them to get a cart ready.
by Ben (Little Mountain, SC) - 07/11/2012
It was my first time at Panther's Run and I really enjoyed it. I loved the layout and thought the course was in great shape. I thought the staff did a great job and was very friendly.
by Gregg (Lexington, SC) - 07/08/2012
Nice course and staff, would play again. Only issue was the pro shop did not take the voucher purchased online, they only looked at it then returned it and then charged $34 per player. This caused us to pay for the round twice, once thru purchase of voucher and once at golf course. Also, the rate we got at the course was less than the price we got from the online voucher. I was disappointed with both issues and had to resolve by telephone later that day.

Nice holes, design, greens too slow, too many houses lining fairways. Good condition.
by Larry (Lebanon, TN) - 05/02/2012
Very good.

I liked the large, perfect greens.
by Rick - 11/10/2011
Just an OK course. Fairways were pretty brown and dry. Miniverde greens were good and putt true. Open course.
by Corey (Johnstown, Penn.) - 07/24/2011
Course was in good shape for the little rain the area has received in the last few months. I golfed another course earlier in the week, and it was in terrible shape. Panther's Run looked much better. I will definitely be playing the Big Cats on my next trip to the area.
by Kaoru (Greenville, N.C.) - 07/05/2011
(Would like to have known prior to play about the) course condition. Greens were good, but fairways were brown.
by Robert (Somers Point, N.J.) - 04/13/2011
Sorry, but it's more important as to what we didn't like. Greens were terrible, looked like they were spray painted, had not been cut or rolled. Never had a true putt due to condition of greens.
by Philip (Ocean Pines, Md.) - 11/15/2010
Extremely disappointed that the course had been reseeded and it was cart paths only ... we would definitely not have played if we knew in advance. Tried to resolve this prior to play and there was no cooperation from anyone to accommodate our concerns.
by Rodney (Oxford, N.C.) - 12/29/2009
the course was extremely wet and soggy. almost every hit from the fairway threw up mud. cart path only takes so much more time to play a round of golf.
by Richard (Trenton, N.J.) - 11/06/2009
Nice layout. First time at Panther's Run
by Lafonza (Martinsville, Va.) - 10/22/2009
Once again it rained on us but I shot the best round at this course. Great shape and the greens were great.
by John - 04/10/2009
All around great day, service was impeccable. Wife had a hole in one on number 2.
by Peter - 04/10/2009

by Johnny - 04/02/2009
The course was very nice till you got to the greens, I was quite suprised that they were not as nice after playing two of the other courses at Ocean Ridge.
