Course Reviews

new greens

Tidewater has always been one of the best layouts in MB. Recently the condition was not fitting with a top course. Last year they got the hint and replaced all the greens, redid a bunch of traps and added significant drainage. The course is in absolutely fantastic condition and is back to being a must play.

Course was beautitul...Rained that morning so the greens couldn't be mowed...They were slow...Renovations will definately pay off...Ranger told us we were behind even though there was no one behind us and only 12 people on the course due to the rain...That's what the GPS told him

Myrtle Beach Must Play

Tidewater is a must play. Challenging golf course with great views and a great mix of holes. The greens were spank and rolling great. Love this golf course.

Tidewater Golf Course is a great choice!

Every time I come to the beach, Tidewater is one of my top choices. Year after year this course is in supreme playing condition. I'm surprised to see that it's only listed #7 on your top golf courses in Myrtle Beach! If you have yet to play Tidewater golf course, this is a "must play" during your time at the beach.

One of my favorite golf courses

Tidewater golf course in an excellent place to play. Had the opportunity to play 9 holes yesterday (Aug. 21st, 2011) and the course was in GREAT shape. The greens were running extremely fast, which made things a little more interesting. Scenic views, affordable rate, excellent course condition.

Not up to par

My group played this in Spring 2009 - first time back to the course in four-years and we were looking forward to our return. Boy were we disappointed -- the course was in very poor shape for the cost/round. Most of the tee-boxes and fairways were mostly soil - very little grass. The greens were in poot condition as well. Either they have been resting on their reputation and putting minimal effort into grounds maintenance or somebody screwed up somewhere and killed off all the grass. Views are still fantastic - but the golf is not up to the standard you would expect for this pricey of a course.
