The Newest Cat in Myrtle Beach

Leopards Chase is the newest course at the now 72 hole facility of Ocean Ridge Plantation. The resort is located in the north end of Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand just over the border into North Carolina. Tigers Eye has been their top offering which is consistently on the list of top 100 public courses by Golf Digest. Leopards Chase however was designed to take that top spot and further strengthen the quality of the resort.

The course was designed by Tim Cate, who designed all four courses at Ocean Ridge. Leopards Chase has everything from a man made waterfall to an island green and beautiful landscaping.

When planning your next trip to the Myrtle Beach area give one of our golf specialists a call and be sure to ask out the new Leopards Chase Golf Course.

Taylor Made Performance Lab is Best I've Seen

I've just been to the Taylor Made Performance Lab at Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, California and what an amazing experience. If you're thinking of buying a new set of irons or the whole set and you don't invest in this great experience first you're missing out and not getting what you need or want in a new set of clubs.Tom Fuller was fantastic, knowledgeable, courteous, professional and a very good player himself. Next time you're planning a golf package vacation to San Diego area, make a point of getting there, it's reasonably priced and offers invaluable insights to your swing, posture, strengths and weaknesses. At the end of your session your club specs are emailed to Taylor Made and your clubs are shipped to your address.

Cathedral Canyon Country Club Great Value in Palm Springs

On my recent visit to Cathedral Canyon Country Club I came away very pleased to be able to offer the facility to our Golf Zoo clientele as part of their Palm Springs golf package. Offering 27 holes, I have to say my favorite 9 was the Arroyo, the latest addition. It's as if you're on a links nine. The other two nines, Mountain and Lake are also very enjoyable and offer a good, fair challenge. This is one of our best golf values in a Palm Springs golf package with great pricing, a friendly, down home atmosphere and a comfy restaurant and bar facility to enjoy after your round. The surrounding mountain views are spectacular and the 27 holes of golf can be enjoyed by any handicap golfer without breaking the bank.
