Although the community covers about 3,000 acres, 900 of these are designated open spaces. This reflects the residents' collective desire to maintain as much of the natural landscape as possible. The protected woodlands and walking trails, for example, help link residents and their homes to the natural environment.
Ocean Ridge Plantation® has a long list of amenities available to its homeowners. The hub of activity is the Ocean Ridge Plantation® Club, where fitness and fun prevail. Residents have access to a $3.5 million swim, tennis and fitness facility featuring indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and lighted tennis courts. And clubhouse restaurants are the perfect venue for a gathering with neighbors and friends. Fishing is also available at the four-acre Plantation Club Lake.
The award-winning golf courses, though, are the primary attractions. Lion's Paw was designed the "Best in Myrtle Beach Area" by Golf Digest and given four stars by Golf Digest's "Places to Play." Golf Digest also recognized the Tiger's Eye course with a nomination for "Best Golf Course in America, 2000." Panther's Run was named one of the Top 100 fairways for 2000 by Golf for Women magazine. The Lion's Paw course is located at the northern end of the community, while Tiger's Eye and Panther's Run are more centrally located to the southwest and southeast, respectively. Leopard's Chase has recently opened and looks to be as challenging as its predecessors.
The greater coastal Carolinas region is a hotbed for golf enthusiasts. When Ocean Ridge golfers need a change of pace, they can venture just a few miles outside their community. There are about 20 different golf courses in Sunset Beach, Calabash and Carolina Shores alone.
