Tidewater is a definite top 5 course on the Grande Strand. The golf course and green renovation done last summer has left the course looking great. The new Mini-Verde greens are really nice. The mix of holes is great. Some holes are on the salt marsh and Intracoastal waterway offering great views. Other holes are routed through the southern pines. The staff was very friendly and warm up balls are included with your round.

First time playing this tract and I was very impressed. I was told the course was beautiful and that the greens and other updates were done recently. I was expecting the greens to be very firm and the were not. Outstanding layout and greens and the service staff was wonderful.

Our group has it in our top 25, not as high as its reviews make it out to be. Some beautiful holes and a few others that don't really impress. Greens used to be unbelievably difficult, but since the changes of the past year, they are far more playable. Clubhouse isn't as conducive to "hanging around" after the round as some others whose bar, grill and views warrant doing so. Selecting the right tee box can be critical to how much you'll enjoy this course. We will continue to play it every 5-7 years.

One of my favorites in Myrtle Beach, especially the 12th hole.

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.
