Where2Golf says: 

Ocean Ridge Plantation (Tiger's Eye Golf Links): Ocean Ridge Plantation is the land of the Big Cats. With courses bearing the names and paw prints of the Lion, Panther, Leopard (and a Jaguar on the way), the leader of the pack is generally regarded to be the Tiger - and this is a most handsome Tiger; woods and lakes providing its very natural environment. After a gentle opening par-4, the Tiger's Eye stamps its authority on proceedings with the par-3 2nd; water, fierce bunkering and a beautifully elevated green all combine to produce a superb golf hole. Tall pines and large sandy (drive-thru') waste areas typically line the good-width fairways, as well as dark, reflective lakes and ponds, which come into play on well over half the holes. With pleasant elevation changes on some holes and a mix of wooded and more open aspects, this is the most scenic and beautiful of the feline quartet at Ocean Ridge. Real estate is very limited and discreetly tucked away. If your card has survived the trees, waste areas and water, then quite substantive bunkering (some of it merging into the water hazards) will also need to be negotiated, along with large (sometimes very large), fast, undulating greens. Like all tigers, this one is a joy to behold, but keep your wits about you, have your A-game ready and be aware that Tigers have plenty of bite !
