Two Big Cat Courses in Top 100 North Carolina Golf Panel Rankings

The latest North Carolina Golf Panel rankings are out and once again the Big Cats courses are well represented. Among the nearly 600 public, private, and resort golf courses in our state, Leopard’s Chase and Tiger’s Eye both rank prominently on The Panel’s prestigious “Top 100 Courses” list at number 56 and 66 respectively for 2021 respectively. On the “Top 50 You Can Play” list (The top public courses in the state) Leopard’s Chase ranked 17th while Tiger’s Eye came in at 20th place. Only the semi-private Bald Head Island Club ranked higher among courses in our region of the state. This is very exciting news considering that all have been faced with considerable obstacles during the 2020-21 pandemic.
