Since developer Mark Saunders first unveiled the Tiger’s Eye golf course, it has been considered one of the most memorable golf courses out there. Thanks to the work of course architect Tim Cate, Ocean Ridge Plantation’s Tiger’s Eye golf course features dramatic elevation changes, massive coquina boulders, and other aspects of its layout that make it among the best courses in Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area.
For those looking for a challenge, hole No. 4 at the Tiger’s Eye golf course is one they should be sure to try. This par-4 hole is 422 yards long and forces golfers to weigh risk versus reward.
While this fourth hole isn’t necessarily the longest par-4 out there, it’s certainly one of the hardest. Its fairway’s sharp dogleg left dares golfers to try and cut the corner for a birdie. A well-placed drive that travels about 250 yards from the back tees can shorten the hole considerably, but there are water hazards and bunkers for the golfer to avoid. Trying to get your drive to leave an approach shot inside 75 yards is a big risk, but the reward can be worth it. It is best to choose the strategy that best suits your game. Otherwise it could be a long day for you on that hole.
The most common play for this hole is to aim for the largest part of the fairway, which leaves golfers with an approach shot of about 140 yards. The green is large and two-tiered so getting it there shouldn’t be hard, but getting the ball close to the pin is a different story.
