When golfers think of a great place to stay on a Myrtle Beach trip, their thoughts often gravitate toward a centrally located property in the heart of town, but we are here to challenge conventional wisdom.
The 3-night, 4-round Big Cats Package from The Winds Resort & Beach Club in Ocean Isle Beach, just across the state line in North Carolina, has it all. We will get to the golf, which is outstanding, but The Winds Resort is one you need to know a little more about.
The Winds isn’t a typical oceanfront hotel, offering instead a varied choice of accommodations, ranging from 6-bedroom cottages to one-bedroom oceanfront suites. The family-owned property delivers a cozy environment with the luxuries of a larger property, including the Garden Bar Restaurant and a Tiki Bar.
Did I mention The Winds is a 4.5-star property, according to 687 TripAdvisor reviews? The property is also just 10 minutes from Ocean Ridge Plantation, home of the Big Cats.
Beyond accommodations at The Winds, here are other highlights from the Big Cats Package:
While The Winds and its nearby oceanfront location add to the package’s appeal, groups ultimately come for the golf. Lion’s Paw, the first of Ocean Ridge’s courses, and Panther’s Run are both 4-star layouts that established the property as a go-to location.
When Tiger’s Eye opened in 2000, followed by Leopard’s Chase in 2007, things went to another level. Tiger’s Eye has been ranked among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest, and Leopard’s Chase was among the nation’s best new layouts upon its opening.
