As many other reviews indicate the course is a shell of what it used to be. Fairways are uneven in terms of being mowed or bare spots. Green side bunkers were a mess. The greens for the most part rolled true but were thick so they were very slow.

The course is still a challenge and the price is not bad. It’s just that there are plenty of better options in the area.

Disappointing

Still a good layout, but course is in terrible shape from tee box to green. Assume it has something to do with the wet weather, but it's apparent that this course is getting no love at all. Bunkers are unplayable. Greens were fuzzy with numerous bare spots. If I had paid anything north of $50, I would've been extremely upset. With all the weeds growing uncontrollably in the natural areas around the tee boxes, it's very clear that they have no intention of spending much money to maintain what was once a great golf course. With so many choices in the area, we won't be back.

Thank you for the review of your round at Tiger's Eye. You are correct, we have had over double the typical rainfall for our area over the last 30 days, including nearly 5 inches on 8/3 alone, which was apparently 1 or 2 days before you played the course. This massive rain event washed out all bunkers and made everything look soggy and unappealing. The heavy rain also has made grass (and weeds) grow explosively, which requires a tremendous amount of labor to combat. Unfortunately, with the pandemic ramping back up, a willing labor force has been very difficult to find, so we are doing the best we can under very extreme circumstance. Even so, anyone who has played The Big Cats courses over the past few years will readily agree we have made great strides over the past several months and we fully expect this continue as we move forward. We hope you will return some day and see our continued progress.

The course was in great shape and the staff, as always, was incredibly accommodating and friendly. A twosome who picked up their kids on the turn gummed the course up for the entire back 9 but otherwise was excellent round.

Beautiful course, fun layout!!!

This was a great last minute experience. We booked the tee time the night before. The course was in good shape, and the water features/ layout was beautiful. The one problem was not with the course but with a foursome in front of my twosome who waited until the 10th hole to let us play through and then blamed us because we "should have asked them 9 holes earlier if we could go by." Again this is not a problem with the course but it did have an effect on my rating in the pace of play category. Overall, this was a great experience, and for the price, it is tough to beat.

Thank you for the nice review of your recent visit to Tiger's Eye. We apologize for the delay you mentioned. In the summer months, we sometimes get inexperienced golfers who are unfamiliar with basic course etiquette. Our course marshal should provide assistance in such cases. I will review your feedback with our staff and make sure our marshals are doing all they can to promote a reasonable pace of play for all of our guests. Thanks again.

Staff was AWESOME! Great golf for the price!

First off, the staff, from the bag drop to the Pro Shop, were so friendly and helpful. There are three courses on premise and Tiger’s Eye is separate building from the other two. Course had a very nice layout. I played from the Blues (10 handicap) and was solid. Not overly long but need to put ball in position. My wife played the Reds and they were very short. Whites were a little too short. I drive the ball about 250-265 and it would have taken driver out of play on a bunch of holes. Course was in decent shape for a public course. Tee boxes were slightly overgrown, but still pretty solid for a public course. Greens ran pretty good as well. Would play again for sure and may want to check out the other courses as well.
$59 with a cart is worth it!

Tigers Eye

I played this course for the first time. I had played Panther's Run several years ago and enjoyed it. Overall, the course was challenging, but not reasonable.
The fairways were in good shape, the greens fast, but true. The course was not particularly crowded and a good pace of play was maintained.
I was disappointed at the landscaping around the tee boxes and along the cart paths. The course had obviously been much more attractive initially. You could tell this portion of the course had not been maintained. In some places, weeds had grown up such that the signs indicating the hole # was barely visible.
Despite that, it was a good day with great weather and enjoyable golf.

One more box please

Love the course, though it’s been a couple of years since we’ve played it. We get to Sunset for our beach trip once a year. Course is in very good shape, and my one suggestion would be to add one more set of tee boxes. The whites play to nearly 6100 yards and there’s nearly a full 1000 yards difference down to the gold tees at 5100+. I think you need something that splits the difference in the 5500-5600 yard range.

Could be a Great Course

We were able to play three of the Cat Courses at Ocean Ridge Plantation for $120, so the courses not being in the best of shape was really not a problem at all. They were more than playable. Greens were grainy and a little slow, but putts were there to be made with a good stroke. Fairways were firm. Greens were firm. Tee boxes needed the most work. The layout of Tiger’s Eye is incredible. Every hole is unique. Lots of great bunkers and waste area. I’ve heard great stories about the course in the past. Hopefully ownership is able to get it back on the right track because it truly could be a magnificent course.

Pace of play

Course was in very nice shape and is alway a fun one to play.
My only complaint was the the hot deal of the day tee time placed me s a single close behind a women’s league that was very slow and would not allow me to play through.
Otherwise, even on a very hot afternoon, the course continues as a fun challenge.

Thank you for the great review! We agree, Tiger's Eye is looking very good and continuing to improve daily. You are correct, the pace of play as a single player on a busy day can be a little slower than ideal, but we strive to get every group around in under 4 and a half hours, which is pretty typical for Grand Strand golf courses. We will continue to work on ways to keep play moving along and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
