Thistle Golf Club

Thistle Golf Club in Myrtle Beach has recently earned an overall rating of 8.6 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for customer service, course design and condition, and overall experience. Click here to see Thistle’s most recent reviews.

Designer Tim Cate and owners Robert and Mort Hansen set out to build one of the premier courses on the North Strand in 1999 with a philosophy being “Ferocious, yet Fair.” The dramatic 27-hole layout reflects its 1815 Scottish heritage and has been rated “4.5 stars” by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play.” “We firmly established from the onset here that we were going to be the most customer service-oriented golf course in the Grand Strand,” says course director Dan Oschmann.

Thistle Golf Club is the only course in Myrtle Beach that has 12-minute tee times and is the cornerstone for the business, which almost always puts you on a hole by yourself and brings back customers for repeat play. No. 4, the most talked about hole on the South Nine, is a 543-yard par 5 from the back tees that requires a tee shot over a large pond to the right that will set up for a nice second shot into the green or lay-up, depending on the length of the tee shot.

Jaime, I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for having us today. The weather looked gloomy at the start but turned out to be a dry day and the course was in great shape. Your entire staff from the bag drop to the counter staff were wonderful and very helpful, which made for a great day. Thank you again.

The course was in fantastic shape, and the people were all professional and friendly. The nicest of the Sunset Beach area courses, and should be a place to play for anyone in the area. We didn't try out the grill but it looked nice.

What a great course. Greens were great very receptive for being brand-new. Fairways were great tee boxes were great. The only problem we had was we got there early to hit range balls and the bag people ended up pushing us early so one of our players did not get loosened up. He was very rude in the way he asked or told us what was going on. The course is excellent.

Beautiful and very well maintained piece of property. The practice green was closed for a turf renovation, though I understand.

Course was in great shape. Greens were very fast but puttable. I only thing I would recommend to this club would be that your course Web site says you take pride in the fact that you keep your tee times at 12 minute intervals yet the site books tee times at 9 minute intervals. You should change your motto to reflect what you do. Other then that this is a great course. I would surely play it again.

Tee to green course was in great shape. McKay 9 was aerated (discounted rate) which made putting tough, but other than that the course was fantastic. Greens on other nine rolled fast and true. One of my favorite courses to play.
