3 Reasons Tidewater Might Be Myrtle Beach’s Best Golf Course

October 27, 2016

The unforgettable 12th hole at Tidewater is one of the area's bestThat being said, Tidewater Golf Club, which opened in 1990, is on any short list of not only the best golf courses in Myrtle Beach but all of America. 

What makes Tidewater great?

Here's the case:


1. A vital component of any great course is memorability, and Tidewater excels in this regard.

You don’t have to be the guy who can recall every detail to remember a trip to Tidewater years later. Eight holes play along either a stunning stretch of Cherry Grove or the marshy waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. 

The third and 12th holes are the prettiest combination of par 3s along the Grand Strand. The par 4 fourth hole is a breathtaking dogleg left that that plays along Cherry Grove, and we haven’t even gotten to the signature hole, yet. The 13th, a par 5 that offers a distant view of the Atlantic Ocean, is Tidewater’s most photographed hole. 


2. Tidewater was the first layout ever named best new public course in America by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine, and it's also been ranked among the nation’s top 100 public courses by both publications.

The course has deservedly received acclaim from golfers and the national media. In fact, Golf Magazine’s travel editor Joe Passov has called Tidewater a “trophy track,” an endorsement that is strong enough for us!


3. Twenty-six years young,
and Tidewater has never been better.

A 2014 renovation project, which featured new greens, the widening of fairways, and tree removal has been a rousing success. The course’s greens are superb and the tee-to-green conditioning is as a good as any Myrtle Beach golf course. 

The list could go on, but you get the point. Tidewater is a top 100 caliber golf course that delivers the experience, conditions and customer service expected from an elite layout.
