CHERRY GROVE, S.C. – Myrtle Beach is home to 90 golf courses but Tidewater Golf Club is one of only two that offers a view of the Atlantic Ocean.
The acclaimed layout has nine holes that play along either the Intracoastal Waterway or Cherry Grove Inlet, highlighted by the famed 13th. The 543-yard par 5 resides along the stunning waters of Cherry Grove from tee to green and offers a distant view of the Atlantic.
Before golfers enjoy that view, they have to negotiate one of the course’s most daunting tee shots. The 13th fairway cants from left to right pushing drives toward the marsh that runs to the fairway’s edge.
Big hitters may consider going for the green in two, but for most players, the second shot is about playing to a comfortable distance to approach a daunting green. Nearly surrounded by sand, the two-tiered putting surface runs toward the water, enhancing the challenge.
From the top shelf of the green, the splendor of the Atlantic comes into full view, one of the highlights of a round full of them.
The reigning Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year, Tidewater has been ranked among the nation’s top 100 public layouts and has anchored countless golf trips over the years. At the heart of Tidewater’s popularity is its commitment to customer service.
Sure, the holes along the water lure golfers to a layout that became the first ever named “Best New Public Course in America” by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine, but the Tidewater experience begins long before Cherry Grove comes into view. From the moment players arrive on property, there is a commitment to exceeding lofty expectations.
From course conditions and customer service to the new in-house restaurant, Tidewater delivers a premium golf experience, highlighted by the challenge and beauty of the 13th hole.
