Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation

  • Overall: - 8.67

Tidewater Golf Club is the only golf course ever to be selected by both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest as “Best New Public Course In America” in the same year. Burrowed between the Intracoastal Waterway and Cherry Grove, this course offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and challenging play. Recognized by Golf Digest as one of “America’s Top 100 Greatest Public Courses” (2011-2012), Golf Magazine named it one of the “Best Courses Near You,” the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel honored it with a “Best You Can Play” designation (2011), and Golfweek chose it as one of its “Best Courses You Can Play” (#6 in South Carolina).

Tidewater’s signature hole - No. 12, a 145-yard (white) par 3 - is very intimidating. Depending on the prevailing wind, a 130-yard mid-range iron shot needs to carry the marsh and avoid bunkers guarding the front and right side of the green. You can afford to miss long or left, but the green slopes away toward the marsh, making a par effort very difficult. Don’t be surprised if you catch yourself forgetting completely about the shot, and spending a few moments admiring the beautiful views of the Lowcountry marsh and home across the way.

Myrtle Beach Golf Insider
  • Paul (Unionville, CT) - Great golf course. Most every hole was a challenge. Holes along the marshes and waterways were beautiful. Course experienced a lot of rain earlier in the week so the tees and greens were a bit long. Everyone was very nice. Would play again. - 12/29/2015 - 8

  • JJ - We played Tidewater today and you can see were it gets its name "The Pebble Beach of the East." It was a very scenic course with very good conditions but a little wet. The course has a very good layout and beautiful views. The whole presence of the course is Cadillac. The staff makes you feel important and treats you better than any other course. Overall it is a must play while in Myrtle Beach. - 12/28/2015 - 9

  • Barry (Danville, VA) - Well maintained course with challenging layout. - 12/15/2015 - 9

  • Kenneth (Lynbrook, NY) - Great experience. Well manicured. - 11/09/2015 - 8

  • Nick - Overall course was pretty good. Course is in really good shape. The layout is ok. A few holes stood out. Green were hard as cement. I know they are brand new but very hard to gauge distance. They did roll true though. Round was about 5 hours. - 07/29/2015 - 10
