Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation

  • Overall: - 8.53

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
  • Mitchell (Commerce, GA) - Really enjoyed my round today very nice course and paid a fair price to play it. But I think anything over $70 is over priced - 06/09/2016 - 6

  • Craig - Greens great. Equal to any greens in Myrtle. Overall course was in great shape. Always a great test but fair. Nothing is hidden from you. - 05/06/2016 - 10

  • Erik (Underhill, VT) - Would have been good to know they were going off both tees at 8am as I came around, starter did a great job of getting me in with almost no wait but slowed my round on the second nine. Course and staff were all great, definitely would play again. - 04/23/2016 - 9

  • Jong - Very scenic course. Tees, fairways in good shape. Greens were in good shape for the most part. Couple of bumpy spots, but all in all good shape. The views of the marsh are beautiful. I would play this course again. - 04/05/2016 - 9

  • Jack (Southborough, MA) - Always love the course. The attendants are fine but somewhat pushy about club cleaning (for tip I presume, although this occurs everywhere at M Beach) Condition was not the best I've experienced at the course but time of year, weather, etc., can vary this very quickly. We'll be back! - 04/02/2016 - 8
