Thistle Golf Course

1815 Olde Thistle Club Road · Sunset Beach NC, 28468

Named for the original Thistle Golf Club in Leith, Scotland, which opened in the early 1800s, this Tim Cate course does its namesake justice.

Save some airfare and experience historically great golf right here in South Carolina.
