CHERRY GROVE, S.C. – Options are aplenty in Myrtle Beach, a destination that is home to 90 courses, but Tidewater Golf Club offers more than a few compelling reasons to make the acclaimed layout the centerpiece of any trip.
Tidewater has long enjoyed national acclaim but headlines alone aren’t enough to make a golf course great. For group leaders looking for a course to build their next trip around, here are four reasons Tidewater should be batting cleanup on your next trip.
● We aren’t breaking any news here, but Tidewater is Myrtle Beach’s prettiest course and on the shortlist of South Carolina’s most scenic layouts. Nine holes play along either the Intracoastal Waterway or Cherry Grove Inlet, providing the type of backdrop that leaves golfers scrambling for their phone to take a picture. The holes along Cherry Grove - 3, 4, 12 and 13 - are particularly stunning, and when a sailboat floats by on No. 16, a par 5 that backs up to the Intracoastal, it creates a spectacular visual.
● The beauty of a round at Tidewater extends beyond the scenery. This is an outstanding course architecturally speaking. The fourth hole, a gentle dogleg left, might be Myrtle Beach’s best par 4, including a daunting green ringed by three cavernous bunkers. The inland holes are no less fun to play, including the short par 4 seventh, where everything from birdie to double bogey is in play. Tidewater complements its beauty with an outstanding design, a winning combination for golfers.
● The golf course delivers in a big way but when you are operating at the top of any market, intangible factors matter, and Tidewater excels in delivering on the experiential side. From course conditions and customer service to the clubhouse restaurant, Tidewater treats everyone like a member and golfers appreciate the commitment.
● If playing a top 100 caliber course isn’t enough, Tidewater provides ample value, particularly as part of the Myrtle Beach Elite package, which pairs the award-winning layout with Arrowhead Country Club, Prestwick Country Club and Arcadian Shores Golf Club. The Myrtle Beach Elite will ensure your next Myrtle Beach golf trip is unforgettable.
