Tidewater Golf Club

About as decorated as any course on the north end of South Carolina’s Grand Strand, Tidewater Golf Club continues to clean up in awards year after year. It was named one of America’s top 100 Great Public Courses by Golf Digest multiple times in the last decade and is frequently named among the top 10 courses in South Carolina by various ratings panels.

Keeping up with all those honors, though, pales in comparison to the beauty Tidewater’s visitors see each time out. It leaves even the club’s staff wondering which hole here is its best.

“That’s one of the greatest things about Tidewater. There isn’t one signature hole,” head professional Archie Lemon said. “It has drawn some chatter.”

Narrowing it down to three is a little more feasible. No. 4 has been named the best par 4 locally by The Myrtle Beach Sun News, a tribute to a picturesque streak of waste bunker down the left side and sand traps measuring six deep protecting the green. 

The par three at No. 12 requires a shot over the marshland associated with the Cherry Grove Inlet, while the longest hole of the round follows on No. 13 with that body of water again affecting shot selection.

A very good course and in good condition. The greens were in very good shape and maybe slightly faster than medium speed.

First time playing Tidewater. Course does live up to it's reputation. Beautiful layout, great staff and excellent conditions. The only complaint I could make was that the greens were slow, but it is January after all.

The layout and location of the course was fantastic. The greens were probably the best greens I've played in a long time. Would have been nice to know about the overseeding and cart path only.

I read last couple of reviews and was not sure if I should play Tidewater. I did see where they did maintenance around greens but all good now. These greens were the best I played. The only bad part of Tidewater was that they are overseeding and it will be cart path only soon.

Portions of the fringe around the greens is being repaired on every hole. Really affected play around the greens. Our group and several other groups had to wait between 9 and 10 for them to finish am tee times that go off the front and back. Our wait was 35 mins on the 10th tee to continue our round. When we questioned the staff about the wait they told us it was because we played the front in 2 hrs and the pace of play is 2:15. We waited on every shot on the back 9. Really wish the experience would have been better because the course is really beautiful and scenic. Will give this course 1 more chance in a year or two when the fringes are repaired and will keep in mind they double book tee times in the am.

Nice layout, poor conditions. Collars around greens have been removed, have to pitch over missing sod. Inconsistent greens. Fairways and tee boxes passable. Not worth the money.

How the hell is this rated over 6. The greens were a total mess with a 2 foot area of grass cut out around them. Not one true roll all day. Fairways unevenly cut with tons of dried grass on them. Tee boxes mangled. Only the staff and practice area was good. There are many many better price ratios available in Myrtle Beach. At $60 we got ripped off royally. Will never never play this again.....

One of the top courses in the area. Great layout, great views and overall very good condition. Also the carts have built in GPS and come with ice boxes, all of which adds to the experience. A must visit.

It is always a pleasure to play Tidewater. A great mix of holes, some through the southern Pines and some holes along the Inter Coastal and others along the Cherry Grove inlet. The course is in great shape. The rebuilt Mini-verde greens are in excellent condition. Sand traps and tees are in great shape. A must play course.

Would have been good to know they were going off both tees at 8am as I came around, starter did a great job of getting me in with almost no wait but slowed my round on the second nine. Course and staff were all great, definitely would play again.

Very scenic course. Tees, fairways in good shape. Greens were in good shape for the most part. Couple of bumpy spots, but all in all good shape. The views of the marsh are beautiful. I would play this course again.

Always love the course. The attendants are fine but somewhat pushy about club cleaning (for tip I presume, although this occurs everywhere at M Beach) Condition was not the best I've experienced at the course but time of year, weather, etc., can vary this very quickly. We'll be back!

Great golf course. Most every hole was a challenge. Holes along the marshes and waterways were beautiful. Course experienced a lot of rain earlier in the week so the tees and greens were a bit long. Everyone was very nice. Would play again.

We played Tidewater today and you can see were it gets its name The Pebble Beach of the East. It was a very scenic course with very good conditions but a little wet. The course has a very good layout and beautiful views. The whole presence of the course is Cadillac. The staff makes you feel important and treats you better than any other course. Overall it is a must play while in Myrtle Beach.

15 year Tidewater property owner here. The course is in much better shape. Tees were fine, traps were in great shape with Augusta like sand, and green were about 90%. More summer heat and time should make them top notch. All Myrtle Beach courses seem to be a month behind because of cool spring. A few greens a little thin. Over all they put fine. Views are still awesome regardless of how many times you have played. Lars in the pro shop was great at working me in and the cart guys and the starter were all very friendly. Carts have quality yardage monitors with accurate distances. Downside- note to course, I know you have the yardage monitors but some better on course markings would speed things up. Sometimes you don't want to fuss with the monitor. 150 and 100 need to be painted, some sprinkler numbers are missing, and it would be awesome if you brought the Kirby markers back to the course. Overall, a must play.

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.

I'm not sure what the previous commenters were thinking. The greens are the worst in the southeast. As far as I'm concerned, you can't call them greens as it's a 50/50 combination of dirt and sand. Will never come back. Staff is sympathetic, but no grass on greens will lead to a beautiful layout to fail eventually. A joke and a shame.

Played this course apr 12/2013. Greens almost unplayable for scoring! Group had to agree to a max 2 putt if anywhere near cup. These conditions were prevalent on almost all greens. Head pro said they had a rough winter but I have played 7 other courses on this trip and did not have any other courses that had these issues! Most disappointing!!

Tidewater was one of our top courses in spring 2012 (with MB Kings North and Legends Moorland). This spring it is in a poor condition: tee box, fairway and specially greens. GPS did not indicate pin positions and starter told us to aim for the center, while a few pins were up front (they should consider buying color flags). We will consider returning this fall or next spring depending on course conditions.

A course which winds through a residential area with long distances between tees. Several hazards that are hidden from view. Greens were in excellent shape and consistent.

Played on 10-18-12 and the course was in good condition. I thought the greens were unusually fast to the point that great shots onto the green would land and slowly roll off...sometimes into marsh areas on putts.(the par 3-- third hole) With several blind shots to elevated greens, holding the greens was an almost impossible task. Bump and run was also not an option, since the approach areas were a little choppy and would misdirect shots left or right. Various sand locations could use steps to prevent twisted ankles going up and down the steep inclines. It is a nice course, a tough course and in several respects an unfair course. Our foursome ranges from an 8 to 14 handicap. When we're scratch players, we'll come back.

by Jane (Woodstock, GA) -
This course was very overrated. Paying over $90 for a course that was in that condition was ridiculous. I was told the greens were aerated 3 weeks ago but were fine. There were at least 5 greens that were aerated that day/yesterday. Other greens were not healed that well. The greens were not consistent. 2 were very fast but the rest were very slow. Several holes had nice views and good right to left; left to right. Liked that there was water or reeds in play on some holes. Most bunkers were OK, but 2 I know of had little sand in them. In general the condition was unacceptable and should have cost half of what it did. We will NOT play here again.

Played Feb. 26th and course was in the worst shape since they planted grass late for a John Deere tournament. Greens thin on grass and putting not true. For the money Azalea Sands is better. Clubhouse good and snack stand good. Saving money on course maintenance a bad idea in the long run. We won't be back.

Enjoyed the course. Scenic, challenging, fair. Grass on fairways and greens a little thin, a few greens were spotty, but they all rolled well. Found attendants to be very friendly, and the starter was exceptionally nice and very genuine about wanting us to enjoy our golf experience, so we started our round on a positive note. The direction signage from green to tee was sometimes not obvious and you have to watch closely. Would like to play this course again, but will wait for a special as I can't justify full price.

Beautiful venue and really nice routing. Conditions mediocre. Expected more from a course charging the top rates in Myrtle Beach. Also, not sure why half the players need to start on #10. This cheapens the experience. Overall, the staff was friendly and helpful. This could be the best in MB but falls short on conditions.

Played it Thursday & Friday (4/5-4/6). We were treated well, beautiful views, decent range. Pretty good layout, but our group voted that 18 is a dumb finishing hole. 410 yds. plus, & you need to hit a hybrid off the tee to avoid running out of fairway in to the hazard. Fairways were thin & greens were very thin as well. Worse conditioned course we have played this trip.

What a disappointment! Have played this course many times in the past, always looked forward to playing this course, have not played this course in a few years. Course conditions were not up to the standards that they have been in the past. I will most likely remove it from my must-play list!

This is our fifth time playing Tidewater. Great layout, terrific views, outside staff excellent, pro shop staff a little stuffy. Pro in shop made a comment about 1 of our foursome wearing jeans. When you only have 35 players all day & half were homeowners, does it really matter? Conditions were average for time of year (February). Greens were slow and grainy, fairways a little sparse, tees fair. Tidewater is like an old pair of shoes - comfortable, but sooner or later you must throw them out. Used to be the big man on campus, no longer. Our group is passing for a while.

Stop putting people off the back at 10:00-11:00 A.M. This course could easily be played in 3 1/2hours if you didn't. Instead it always takes 5 hours due to back 9 back-up.

This course used to be worth the premium green fees - no longer. They have been resting on their reputation for too long. For the $130+ green fees, I expect conditions to be way above average. The greens and fairways are in generally poor condition. You can find much better conditions for far less money. The layout and views are still great, but the golf isn't. Save some money and play elsewhere. Maybe then they will finally understand and maintain the course properly.

When played from the blue tees you will need to be quite long and accurate on many approach shots. Should have layed up more often. The greens were super, very smooth and true. Definitely a course I will try again on a visit to the Myrtle Beach area.

course was in excellent condition and the green were the best i had played on. favorite holes were the par three over the marsh and the par four that runs along the marsh with green tucked into the marsh.only negative was the charge for range balls and no water on your cart. we played grand dunes and they did not charge for balls and had water on ice.both courses are run by same management company so i did not understand.

Played this course about two weeks ago, and the greens were in great condition and rolling pretty fast. I found that on many holes, keeping my approach shot to the green below the hole was crucial to avoid putting a down hill slider, or to have a chance in sinking that birdie putt. Overall this course was a blast to play, our entire group enjoyed Tidewater's natural beauty and beautiful holes along the water (bring a camera!) We also found that planning your shot off the tee was everything. To score well on this course you must put your tee shot in prime locations in order to set yourself up for a great second shot to the green. This may include taking many 3-4 irons off the tee. I loved the playability and condition of this course, not to mention their entire staff was excellent. I will definitely make it a point to play here again.
