Leopard Chase

As a typical Cate design, the course features water both natural and man-made, over 7,100 yards of TifSport Bermuda fairways, and manicured L-93 Bentgrass greens.

Hard beautiful course. Narrow fairways. Lots of sand and water hugging the fairways and greens. Inconvenient. The shape of the course besides the greens were a little rough. I will definitely play this course again!

The course was in bad shape for $65. Most $30 courses are in much better shape. The rough is full of weeds and the sand traps need attention. I would give this course a 1 star rating for $65. Maybe 3 stars if it was a $30 course.

Friendly, welcoming staff! Great value for mid morning tee time. Low volume. We had the course to ourselves for most of our round. Bent grass greens were in great shape. Greens were a bit slow, but expected for this time of year. Fairways and greenside chipping areas were in great shape. Bunkers impacted by recent heavy rains in the area. Would love to play again in Spring or Fall when greens are cut lower.

Worst condition I have seen on a golf course in a very long time. Posted rate of $75 for a morning tee time is borderline criminal. Bunkers had water in them, grass growing in about 70% of them. Greens had not been mowed in days, if a putt was over 30’ you almost shouldn’t bother. Fairways were full of weeds. Immediately off greens was full of weeds and lacked recent mowing. It is a shame, because the course layout would have been quite impressive.

Descent course. Employee’s very nice and accommodating. Greens need alittle work and never in my life have I saw cart paths that directed you into sand traps. I would play again though.

Greens are terrible... slow and dead spots all over them. Bunkers not raked. Driving range hadnt been mowed in forever. All the courses used to be good...it's obvious that they don't care about any of the course conditions. By far the worst courses in the area. These courses are off the list. The only bright spot was Brenda, the beverage cart person....she gets 5 stars.

This course has really gone down hill. A year or two ago the course was fantastic. Yesterday it was terrible. Greens were not mowed. Every sand trap has been neglected - washed out with deep ruts. In real need of some TLC. The lay-out and potential is enormous but they have obviously just let it go.

Played on April 4, 2019 on a glorious sunny day. The staff was excellent and the layout is very good. Starting at 9:00 am, the pace of play was excellent (playing in less than 4 1/2 hours). on what I thought was a very tough course. Keeping your ball in the fairway is of paramount importance, as there are lots of bunkers and water hazards. Conditions were generally good except for bunkers, noted below. This was my first time playing this course and I was disappointed in the lack of yardage markers. There were sprinkler heads marked, but none of them were obvious to find. Most quality courses in the Myrtle Beach area, paint around the sprinkler heads to make them stand out. No yardage markers/posts for 200, 150 or 100 yards. 150 yard markers are standard in this area. None of the greenside bunkers were raked. They were hard, crusty and had ruts, caused by water run off. If I was using a numerical score, I would rate this course, based on today's conditions 7 out of 10. Since I live on the Grand Strand, I would play this course again.

To be fair... The design of this course is fabulous. The condition however was poor. On a golf trip we played all 4 of the big Cats and this one was by far in the worst shape. The greens were spotty and not rolled. The ball bounced like crazy. To make it more frustrating there were sections of the greens that looked ok, but the pins were never on those areas. The fairways were brown and the rough was non existent. It was completely dead grass with soft wet dirt underneath. Basically, being 1 foot off the fairway felt like you were hitting off of pine straw. I would love to play this course later in the season if the maintenance was better because it really is a wonderful and beautiful layout.

We were misled about the condition of the course, especially the greens and not offered a discount or concession on fees. We were charged full green fees and we're not told about the condition until the starter informed us and apologized for the courses condition. This after we called twice to confirm the condition of the greens and we're told all is good. Once a regular on our annual rotation is now off the list forever. Just be honest and offer a fair rate for the current condition of the course.

Tried to play on Sept 23 and walked off after 7 holes. Totally unplayable greens. Patchy, muddy, sandy...the course shouldn't even be open. Rest of course looked pretty rough as well. Tee boxes poor and shaggy fairways. Don't waste your time or money when there are so many great options in Myrtle.

5 stars for friendly service at the bag drop, pro shop, and adequate beverage service on the course. Fortunately this courses has bent grass greens and the condition was good but they certainly weren't as fast as one would expect on a higher end course. Interesting, difficult layout, plenty of water and waste bunkers, shot makers course yet fair. Smaller pro shop, this is more of a satellite location for the Big Cats but by far the best course of the four.

The course is beautiful and the staff is great, Bob the starter and Roy the Ranger were very friendly and helpful. The food in the snack bar was terrific, had the best breakfast sandwich ever and a delicious lunch. The 2 ladies that work in the snack bar couldn’t be nicer and they obviously take pride in their food and exceptional customer service. The pro shop staff was also friendly. I hope to be back and I recommend this golf course.
