This course might well be the best course I have ever played. It is absolutely beautiful, the staff, from the clubhouse to the starter and the rangers (Bob Hill was a terrific person to meet on the course). We played all four of the Big...More

I love this course. It challenging, fun and beautiful. I'm saddened by the poor conditions of the bunkers and greens. It's advertised as a premium course. It's condition is about the same as a public county course. Too bad.More

I played Leopards Chase today and every green has crabgrass throughout. A large percentage of greens have large areas with little or no grass on them. So when Ocean Ridge Plantations posts on social media that their courses are in great shape just look at...More
