I think this would be a great place to play if the course was in better shape. The course literally had standing water on the tea boxes, fairways and sand traps. If you could find an area that didn’t have standing water it was mud....More

We knew the greens at Tiger’s Eye were still suffering from the winterkill, but they may not be back completely until 2019. The layout is superior—more like Pinehurst than the typical MB course.More

Thank you for the review! Tiger's Eye is definitely a great layout. Though the greens at Tiger's Eye are now light years improved from the winterkill that damaged so many local courses this past winter and spring, they still have some spots that need to...More

This course maybe the best course off Rt.179 in the Calabash, Sunset Beach, Ocean Isle area. Beautiful layout, and the winter kill did not bring down this covered green course in April...

Thank you very much! The TifEagle greens on Tiger's Eye did fare better than most in our region. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

The cat courses are in horrible shape. The greens have no grass what so ever. Unless you call weeds grass. The majority of the service is green mud. Fairways, what fairways? Absolutely horrible. This is the last year our group will play these courses.More

I’m a local and play many courses in the area. Today the greens at Tiger’s Eye were almost unplayable due to the firmness, speed and pin locations. There were holes that all 4 players 3 putted. The 10th hole had a front pin location. Due...More

What should have been a pleasurable experience turned out to be quite the opposite. A beautifully laid out course turn out to be disappointing because of the horrible conditions of the greens. Just read the Manager's response to a similar bad review of the greens...More

Only complaint of the course was that the day we played it was "cart paths only." Makes for a long day and tired bodies. Greens, tees and fairways very good shape. Drinks in the clubhouse were reasonable. Will be back!
