“Simply The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

My wife and I were looking for a place to relocate from New Jersey seven years ago and traveled most of the east coast in pursuit of a new life new the ocean. Three days after we found/visited Ocean Ridge, we purchased a lot and began construction. The area is one of the best on the east coast and our move to Ocean Ridge was the best decision we could have made. Ocean Ridge is a gated golf community with the friendliest people in the world. It includes all the amenities you could ask for including a house on the ocean front in the town of Sunset Beach to have direct access to the ocean. Unlike many golf communities on the east coast, Ocean Ridge Plantation is well managed by the home owners and has the financial resources to insure the stability of the community.

“Tiger's Eye excellent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Tiger's Eye by far the best course. Fast greens although a little beat up. Great layout. Really hard par 3's. Panthers Run was fine, Lions Paw had so many doglegs. Played all 4 courses for $200. Leopard Chase and Tiger's Eye are great. Wouldn't play the other 2 again.

“A premier community”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Ocean Ridge is one of the premier communities in Brunswick County. It has only upscale single family homes, an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts, a workout room, four golf course plus one under construction. There are oodles of activities to participate in for those so interested.

It took a hit in the real estate bust a few years ago, but is doing pretty well again. There are lots of homes under construction, but the best deals are on resale homes and lots.

I suggest that in order to get the full picture you talk with a real estate agent who works for the community as well as one who works outside the gates.

“Big Cat Courses”

Good choice for golf at the beach. Discount with the Coastal Vacation Resorts key is nice and well worth it.

“Panthers Run GC not amazing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

These courses have gone down a bit. I was always a big fan of all of these and I had the opportunity to play all of them this summer. The starter and his staff were not very friendly. They made us feel like it was a privilege for us to be playing on these courses. They were good, but not that good. In fact, they all seem the same so if you play one, it will be pretty close to playing all of them. The lady in the pro shop was also a little short with us like we were wasting her time. I am not sure why or when this happened. These courses were among my favorites the past few years but we will take a few years off going forward.
