This is the place to play. Top 5 again. Greens were very good. Tees and fairways were the best I have seen them. They are overseeding fairways right now. Must play.

Greens a bit slower than preferred for that level of a course.

Range balls were provided. Premium touch screen GPS is on the cart. Touch a spot to get yardage to it. The tees, fairways and bunkers(new sand) were all in good condition. The new mini-verde greens were firm, true and fast. There were some bad spots on a few greens around the edges, but don't affect play. The scorecard now has an interesting White/Green course at 6031 yards, with the 9 hardest rated holes being green tees. White is 6323, Green is 5734. The only green I could tell had any significant slope change was par 3 ##3, where the short right plateau is flatter, to help keep the ball there with a good shot, but it's still undulating. TW is back. Hole ##18 is still very difficult, where even a "perfect drive" will leave about a 200 yard 2nd shot, possibly with a pine tree in the way. Try to drive it as close to the far marsh as possible, rather than just past the corner.

Same problem as Rivers Edge with the greens although better no course books, couldn't tell how far hazards were from the tee, very frustrating, spend too much time looking for your ball. Course had too many nuances and a booklet would go along way to better enjoy the course.

A must play, top 5 course on the beach. Greens were hard but rolled true. Didn't play well but really enjoyed the course layout. As greens mature they will hopefully soften up.

I have been coming down to MYRTLE BEACH to play golf for the past 14 years. TIDEWATER was a course I would have considered playing again however having a starter tell us 3 times we needed to pick up the pace totally ruined our experience. We were playing ready golf and giving short putts as it was. Having played golf for 15 years we know how to keep pace. If anybody ask me if I would recommend Tidewater my answer would be NO. I rated the Attendants & Starters a 1 but that only applies to the Ranger the rest of the staff was fine. I couldn't rate the Pro Shop or Grill because we couldn't get out of there fast enough.
