Thank you for the nice four star review.. We agree, Leopard's Chase is an excellent layout and a joy to play. The greens were definitely slower than we normally would like, due to the extreme drought conditions of the last two months. We have finally received some rain in the last week or so and this will enable us to be a little more aggressive with the mowing of the greens. So the speed will be much improved (If the weather continues to cooperate). Even so, bentgrass is very heat sensitive and cannot be mowed to its optimum height in the summer months, as it can be in the fall and spring, and pricing reflects that this time of year. But we can assure you they are slick and fast in the cooler months! We hope you will visit us again soon.

The course has a great layout. Greens were soft and fair. Fairways were dry and brown, could use some water for sure.

Thank you for the nice Four star Review! WE are happy to hear you enjoyed your round at Leopard's Chase. You are correct, it has been extremely dry in our region over the past 2 months and most of the courses are very brown and dry. Fortunately we FINALLY received some much needed rain and things are greening back up quickly. We hope you will come visit us again very soon!

Fun course, going through tough dry period

Enjoyed a fun round today. The whole staff was really friendly, welcoming and helpful. Going through extreme dry spell in the area, so grass on the short and brownish side. Still good enough shape to hit the ball well though, and great rolls on the shots!

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to Leopard's Chase! You are correct, it has definitely been extremely dry in our area over the past couple of months and many of the courses have struggled with dry, brown areas. Fortunately, we FINALLY received some much needed rain and things are greening back up quickly. We hope you will visit us again soon!

Some work needed

Course layout is great. Tee boxes and greens need a lot of work on some holes. All the “cats” at Ocean Ridge have not been maintained to the quality they once were. Sad!

Thank you for the Four Star Review. We really appreciate it. The bentgrass greens at Leopard's Chase took a beating last year from the extreme weather conditions, but they have come a long way quickly and are getting even better daily. All four Big Cats courses are improving rapidly under the new maintenance supervision and we are excited about what the future holds for Ocean Ridge Golf. We hope you will come back soon and see our continued progress! Thanks again.

Great Layout & Great Price

Great layout. Rated in the Top 50 Courses that you can play. I would come back and play this course multiple times. The layout is challenging. The staff seems to be working to bring the course back to prestige. The fairways and greens were in great "spring" shape.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent visit to Leopard's Chase. We do have to effect certain procedures to the greens occasionally, to keep them healthy, so I apologize if the greens had been aerated recently, prior to your visit. But it sounds like you enjoyed your round and we hope you will come visit us again soon and see our continued improvement!

Choose your tees wisely!

I had dreamt of playing here since I heard they were building it. I fell in love with tigers eye and couldn’t wait for leopard’s chase. Today was the day. A direct quote from my starter... choose your tees wisely this is a tough course. No joke, is it ever! I am a mid teen handicap and this sucker is relentless. Keep your driver in the bag and settle for a lot of placement shots unless you can thread needles with your longer clubs. Fairways are narrow and run out. Greens are no where near large or flat. I’d say the course was in ok condition. The beautiful waterfalls on 18 were a mere trickle which was really disappointing. Bring your best and hold on tight!

Thank you for playing Leopard's Chase. We agree, from the longer tees, it can certainly be a challenge! The unrelenting cold, wet conditions of this past winter have also been challenging, but now that weather conditions are finally improving, course conditions will quickly follow suit. We hope you will come play again and see our continued improvement.
