Sunset Beach & the community Beach Club are nearby.
Ocean Ridge is located within minutes of beautiful Sunset Beach, nestled between the historic charm of Wilmington, NC, and the excitement of Myrtle Beach, SC. The desirable coastal lifestyle of southeastern North Carolina features small-town charm and modern city luxuries.
Voted the No. 1 barrier island in North Carolina by Duke University researchers and named “One of The Best Beaches in The World” by National Geographic magazine, this top destination for beachgoers is just three minutes away from the Ocean Ridge community.
The unique south-facing direction of Sunset Beach affords both subtle and significant benefits, including tides much more clement than what’s found on a traditional east-facing coastline.
Likewise, the island is better positioned for the warming effects of the Gulf Stream. Send me more information about Ocean Ridge Plantation!

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.
Panther’s Run stretches out along the border of a pristine nature preserve. With generous landing areas and large greens, Panther’s Run blends modern course design and a rare natural setting for a seamless fusion of challenge and aesthetics. Send me more information about Ocean Ridge Plantation!
Courses ‘Wild’ & New
Lion’s Paw has been described as golf designer Willard Byrd’s finest work.

The youngest of the community’s four courses is Leopard’s Chase, a $14 million work of art, also designed by Tim Cate, who crafted Tiger’s Eye and Panther’s Run, as well.
It was also ranked No. 7 by GOLF Magazine in the magazine’s “Best New Golf Courses in America” when it debuted.
