Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation

  • Overall: - 7.98

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
  • Lou R - Nice layout, poor conditions. Collars around greens have been removed, have to pitch over missing sod. Inconsistent greens. Fairways and tee boxes passable. Not worth the money. - 08/18/2016 - 6

  • Marco - How the hell is this rated over 6. The greens were a total mess with a 2 foot area of grass cut out around them. Not one true roll all day. Fairways unevenly cut with tons of dried grass on them. Tee boxes mangled. Only the staff and practice area was good. There are many many better price ratios available in Myrtle Beach. At $60 we got ripped off royally. Will never never play this again..... - 08/17/2016 - 4

  • Taswiyah - Golf course was nice. - 08/08/2016 - 6

  • Joshua - This is a fantastic course, but it can play pretty hard if the wind is up. The greens were receptive and putted well. The people in the pro shop were wonderful. - 07/13/2016 - 10

  • David - One of the top courses in the area. Great layout, great views and overall very good condition. Also the carts have built in GPS and come with ice boxes, all of which adds to the experience. A must visit. - 07/02/2016 - 10
