Tiger's Eye has been recognized by several national golf publications as among the best in the country. The course is on Golf Digest's 2003 - 2004 list of "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses." It is also in the top 25 for "Best in State" and it earned 4 1/2 stars in the prestigious Places to Play rankings. Tiger's Eye was also ranked No. 6 in North Carolina by Golfweek magazine.
Tiger's Eye exemplifies Tim Cate's unique design philosophy, which focuses on accenting the natural features of the land. Cate took great care to make his work look as though it's nature's work. The levels of detail - from the landscaping to the extensive drainage -coupled with the time spent crafting and designing Tiger's Eye, give it a mature look uncommon to most courses.
It is located at Ocean Ridge Plantation which also features the other "Big Cat" courses - Panther's Run, Lion's Paw & Leopard's Chase.
