Leopard’s Chase was the latest big cat to be released at the impressive 72-hole Ocean Ridge Plantation residential development when it opened for play in 2007. Lion’s Paw, a Willard Byrd design, was first to appear here in 1991, followed four years later by the Tim Cate-designed Panther’s Run.
The same architect – a former associate of Byrd – completed the Tiger’s Eye course at the start of the new millennium, before returning shortly after to set out Leopard’s Chase, the longest and toughest of the facility’s four 18-hole layouts. A fifth course, Jaguar’s Lair, is currently under development and scheduled to open in the near future.
Highlight features on Leopard’s Chase include the peninsula green on the 190-yard 4th and the large fairway bunker that threatens on the 425-yard 5th. On the back nine, the fairway flirts with a couple of wetland areas on the par five 11th and waterfalls frame the home green on the par four 18th.
