Panther's Run - #18


A Tim Cate design, Panther's Run borders along the edge of a natural reserve and continually tests a golfer's ability to stay out of the surrounding marshland.

Lion's Paw has been described as Willard Byrd's finest work. Part wild, part rustic and quiet, this magnificent course presents a lion's share of adventure and breathtaking scenery. Golf Digest's "Places To Play" awarded Lion's Paw Four Stars and "The Best In The Myrtle Beach Area."

Panther's Run was born to be a different kind of challenge. Golf course designer Tim Cate has unleashed this cat to prowl along the edge of a natural preserve and continually tests your ability to stay out of, or hit over, the surrounding marsh land. Wide fairways that twist and turn with a variety of elevations, plus scenic water features blend perfectly.

This new $10 million beast will be tough to tame. Tim Cate's newest creation offers 18 unforgettable signature holes unlike anything on the Grand Strand. In fact, it was recently nominated by Golf Digest as "Best New Golf Course In America." This wild new cat dares you with 60-foot elevation changes. The undulating state-of-the-art Tifsport Bermuda grass fairways twist and turn up and down presenting you with a variety of lies along scenic water features. The large, notoriously slick G-2 bentgrass greens require a cautious putting game. Plus there are 40 acres of wild flowers, an island par-3 and a waterfall.

Cited by Golf For Women magazine as having one of the "top 100 fairways," clearly Panther's Run has developed a reputation for the impeccable maintenance of its grounds, as well as the quality of its play.
