Tough yet beautiful, are two words that best describes the Tidewater Golf Club. This golf facility was perfectly carved by Ken Tomlinson on the vast lands of Myrtle Beach to come up with a world-class golf haven. The 18-hole layout features the par 72, 7,150-yard of play from the longest tees with a course rating of 74.9 and a 140 slope rating on Bermuda grass. After it was opened for play to the public in 1990, this stunning golf vacation destination has since then received various citations from different reputable publications. Among the accolades that the resort takes pride on include Golf Digest’s “Best New Public Course in America”, and Golf Magazine’s “Top 10 New Courses”.
While on play, golfers will find the layout tougher than the rest of the Southern Carolina courses. A journey from the green to the tee alone creates the feeling that it would take a lifetime to come across the challenges. From the first tee, golfers will face the Tidewater twists and turns that meanders back and forth while undertaking ordeals one to the other. However, the five sets of tees are provided to cater golfers of any skill level to make sure that there is always plenty of room for everyone.
Being a top-ranked course in Myrtle Beach, Tidewater Golf Club has become a tourist magnet not just for its challenging golf holes, but also with its natural beauty. While working on the holes of the entire layout, Tomlinson also took into consideration the natural beauty of the old-growth live oaks decked with moss that paves the way for the spectacular marshlands set in the Intracoastal Waterway. From here, guests are provided with the eye-catching views of the glittering waters dotted by the snow white sails from the cruising yachts.
