Ranked TOP 25 in Golf Insider!

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.

The course was tough and definitely worth the drive from downtown Myrtle. Definitely going to recommend the course to friends. The experience was almost as good as Barefoot Love but I felt the hospitality was better at Barefoot.

9 of 27 holes at Thistle were closed for renovation.

The staff was very accommodating. My husband and I wanted to play by ourselves since it was our first time golfing since October (we are from Michigan). The staff made arrangements so that we could. We enjoyed the course very much, as well as the friendly staff. Definitely would love to play there again!

Masters Season & Myrtle Beach: The Perfect Fit for the Traveling Golfer
