Tiger's Eye Golf Links

Tiger’s Eye is an upscale, daily fee course carved from a virgin pine forest. The course is distinguished by dramatic elevation changes, reminiscent of the North Carolina sandhills. Tiger’s Eye is a thinking person’s course, requiring precision shot-making and a reliable short game. The course hosts a stunning combination of natural waste areas, native grasses, wildflowers, pine and oak trees, and water features, including marshlands and waterfalls. Tiger’s Eye has been recognized by several national golf publications as being among the best in the country and is an annual award winner.

  • The varying challenges of the greens mirror the classic look and feel of Pinehurst. The generous, undulated, fast-paced greens, which resemble warped plywood, yield numerous pin placements that are obscured from view and guarded by water and/or sand hazards.
  • The mature long leaf pine groves also add to the Pinehurst appearance of Tiger’s Eye, but the mature, dense hardwood forest that lines the fairways and encircles the greens remind golfers that they’re in the Lowcountry.
  • More than a half-mile of coquina boulders, weighing an average of four tons each, were used to erect bulkheads throughout Tiger’s Eye. More than 35,000 tons — or 72 million pounds — of coquina boulders were used on the course.
  • Tiger’s Eye measures 7,014 yards from the championship tees; 6,628 yards from the blue tees; 6,120 yards from the white tees; 5,136 yards from the gold tees; and 4,502 yards from the red tees. Par is 72.
  • The layout features large, undulating Penn G2 bent grass greens built to USGA specifications and generous, well-manicured TiftSport Bermuda fairways. Fescue and carpetgrass line each fairway in the secondary rough.
