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. Golfers vacationing in Myrtle Beach can get a true taste of the Old Country on the wide fairways and in the clubhouse, which features 200-year-old memorabilia straight from the Thistle Club’s heritage. Save some airfare and experience historically great golf right here in South Carolina.

Course Highlights

  • Thoughtfully planned with tee times of 10-minute intervals rather that the typical 8
  • Consists of two par 36 courses and a par 35
  • Legendary design lends to a highly memorable playing experience.
