What You'll Find At Panther's Run

Panther's Run golf course was created to be a unique challenge. The steep variations of elevation alone make this course unique and are enough to test any golfer. Architect Tim Cate has forged a gem of course which constantly tests precision. 

Only careful shots will keep the ball out of the surrounding marshland and nature preserve. Play one of the most visually engaging courses on the Grand Strand, with beautiful water features and wide, scenic fairways offering a variety of lies. Tame Panther's Run, a wilder breed of golf! 

Book this course with our Big Cats Golf Package.

Course Reviews

ok course wide open greens were painted green and the ball seemed to skid when you hit a putt

Looked great

Can't really comment much. Layout looked great, but we got rained on all day and could not enjoy everything the course had to offer.Watch out for the Gators on 11.

Panther's Run

Course was very wet and had to do cart paths only. It's apparent that they have had a lot of rain as the fairways were soggy and eliminated all roll.Clubhouse waitstaff service was poor. Although the lunch was free, service was very slow and the food was just ok

Great course but it had rained for the two previous weeks and was cart path only.

This was the second "big cats" course we played in 3 days. Like the first round, great course and hospitality.

Great starting course to get your golf group prepared if you haven't swung the clubs for a while

This course is always in good shape and our group plays it as a second round in the afternoon. We feel it is the easiest out of the Cats and usually need an ego boost after the morning round.

Summer Renovation

Panthers Run will be doing a greens renovation that will take approximately 13-weeks, from June 1st to August 30th. The existing Bent Grass Greens will be replaced with the NEW MINI VERDE BERMUDA GRASS which is very suitable for the condiotions at Panthers Run and will provide SUPERIOR playing surface for many years to come.
