About Tidewater Golf Club (North Myrtle Beach, SC)

If you're looking for picture perfect golf, North Myrtle Beach's Tidewater Golf Course is the place to end your search. With some of the Grand Strand's most beautiful holes, you've probably seen photos of the course before on a variety of literature and websites promoting Grand Strand golf.

Among the features that make this course so challenging are large sloping greens protected with substantial bunkering, dips and mounds. And once on the green, golfers will soon discover that keeping it below the hole is imperative.

Named by Golf Digest as a top new course in America when it opened in 1990, the course continues to rank consistently in the magazine’s top 200 best public courses and top 25 South Carolina courses. The course also makes the top 10 list of Golf Magazine's and Golfweek's best courses to play in the state. A traditional style course partly sitting on a peninsula surrounded by saltwater marshes, its most scenic holes overlook the Intracoastal Waterway and marsh.

The course's inland holes cut through coastal forest with water a factor on six. Course amenities include a driving range, putting green, snack bar, restaurant, and locker room. Coming in at 7,078 yards from the back tees.

Tidewater is probably our favorite golf course in the Myrtle Beach area however the course was over booked and we had a 6 hour round-totally unacceptable. Also there was a charity organization on one of the par 3s raising money-totally unacceptable.

Very tough and long course. Course had great potential but every green has poa annua all over the green. With this being a long course my only constructive criticism is to separate the tee boxes more stable to handicap. We had a healthy mix of handicaps and just about every tee box spacing between white tees and green tees were negligible at best. On the score card there was about a 400 yard difference between the tees when in reality it was closer to 130-150 yard difference.

I had the opportunity to play Tidewater for the first time in almost 10 years during my September 2020 vacation to the North Myrtle Beach area. The golf course was just as pristine as I last remember it. I'm a below-average golfer and found it to be pretty difficult, but the views of the Cherry Grove inlets and Intracoastal waterway throughout my round made the struggle worthwhile. The greens were in excellent condition, playing extremely fast -- almost like putting on a granite countertop. Tidewater is definitely on the high-end side of my budget for a round of golf -- but worth every penny. If you have not had the luxury of playing a round of golf at Tidewater, I highly recommend doing so the next time you're in the area.

Glad we played here after arriving into a monsoon. However greens were horrible. They had been verti-cut days earlier so very rough. Also their cutters seemed to have a malfunction or not set properly as the greens had burned out grass every 12 or so.

I came on this trip to have fun. This course is very difficult with many small landing areas and blind shots. For those looking for a challenge it's a great course. But I was looking for an enjoyable and forgiving layout and this wasn't it.
