Let me point out that I have never before written a negative review. This a very nice course that was in good condition when we played in mid-November. The gentleman who took our clubs and the lady driving the snack cart were very pleasant. Unfortunately, the rest of the staff that we had to deal with were so rude and miserable that they ruined what should have been a great day of golf.

First, the front desk lost our tee time and basically told us we would have to reschedule for another day. When we showed them the voucher from our golf package, they finally found that they entered it incorrectly in their computer and had given our tee time away to another group. They told us we could play only if we went out immediately. We had arrived about 45 minutes early to hit a few balls on the range and to go to the practice green, but being on vacation this was our only chance to play the course. So, we went directly to the starter who made it clear that he was very annoyed at this change, though it was in no way our fault. Although we have always played quickly and have never been asked to hurry on any other course, the ranger told us three times during the round to hurry up. The third time was coming off the 16th green. We pointed out that we were not holding anybody up, because the group behind us had not even reached the tee on 16, and the group ahead of us was still on the 17th tee.

We had played Leopard's Chase the day before, and the entire staff went out of their way to be friendly and polite. If your playing the Big Cats, I strongly recommend Leopard's Chase, but avoid Tiger's Eye. Its just not worth the aggravation.

Before we booked, I read Tripadvisor reviews, and others. It is a high end course, and at the time we played (Oct. 3, 2012) was getting ready for the cooler season. Great course, great layout. The course was wet from rain early, so the greens had not been cut. They are bent grass and would have been perfect if cut appropriately, but they were very slow for us ( maybe a 7 stimpmeter). Those that say the course is easy likely played from the red, tan, or white tees. Play this course from the Blue ( Amur) or Black (sabre tooth) tees, and you better bring some extra balls. We played the Blue( 6628 yds, and wet) and even with a 250 yd+ tee game average, you will hit a lot of fairway woods and long irons. I would like to play with any golfer who breaks 80 from the tips. I shot 81 from the blue ( 7 hcp) and my game was at its best.
Nice staff, friendly and helpful, and nice pace of play.

Not much to this course. Pretty basic layout without a lot of challenging holes. Probably won't play again.

This is my favorite course at Ocean's Ridge. Always seem to shoot below my average on this layout. Birdies are there for the making.

Tiger's Eye is a fun and challenging course to play. As usual, plenty of water and sand, but a very playable course. It was in good condition in July and seems to be well taken care of. They had a special and we played for $39 which was a bargain.
