I played the course as a twosome and with a chance of rain and after horn blew and a 40 minute delay we still played in under four hours. The conditions of the course were good. The greens rolled around a 9 and fairways and tees were well manicured. I didn't think the course had much character all the holes were right in front of you. The outside staff offered great service and even cleaned the clubs after the round. I don't think the course is worth golfnow rate.

Play here every time I come to the Beach. It's a must play and worth the trip from South Myrtle Beach. Use 22 then 31 North then 17 then 179! Course condition is always great and the staff on the ball. Book a tee time through GolfNow and get a bargain with a hot deal!.

I played here in the spring when the greens had suffered from incorrect application of fertilisers. I was impressed by the layout and the honesty of the club in informing us that the greens were not at their best. I'm pleased to say that the greens are now fully recovered and are in excellent nick! The course is obviously well maintained.The bag drop staff are super and the overall attention to detail is terrific! Even the tee reservations ticket is a cut above the rest! The pro shop staff and bar personnel are of a high quality befitting a club of this standing. The multiple tees make the course playable for all levels of golfer and all are welcomed. Not the cheapest but certainly one of the very best. It's always on my 'must play' Myrtle Beach list! It should be on yours too!

Everything about the round at The Thistle was very good. The quality of the facilities is first rate. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. The course itself was all the fun you want in a good golf course. The greens were excellent although difficult to putt due to the undulations and fast conditions. Even though the back nine had just been top dressed it did not adversely affect play at all (dressing was very fine and thinly applied).

The wife and I are avg golfers. We loved this course. It was forgiving on about half the holes, and a little tight on others. We shot our avg; 88 and 92. Fairways and greens were well maintained. It's worth the drive from MB. You can play at cheaper courses and many more expensive ones in the MB area. If you can get a hot deal at Thistle, do it.

Staff is the best, cheerful very helpful and provides just the right amount of guideance. A nice three 9 hole layout with great challenges. The only downfall was the rain received the day prior so cart path only and most courses are in the area.

Excellent golf course at a great price. We were a twosome with a noon tee time. We hit some balls on the range, then they called us up early. They loaded our cart and sent us to the starter who sent us out as a twosome and we felt like we had the place to ourselves. No houses, no hassles just a beautifully laid out course. There was still some sand on the greens from the late summer aeration, but they still rolled great, and they should be perfect just in time for the fall season.

We played here two days ago and we're going back in about 3 hours and I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. This course is second to none. The finely manicured cuts, the unbelievable cart paths and on course restrooms set this course several notches above the rest. Better bring your A game off the tee. Fairways are tight and trouble lurks everywhere! You will get a rare opportunity to feel like a PGA Tour Pro when you play here. Simply AMAZING!

Other reviews had said greens were aerated about 2 weeks ago, they were more like last week and not in good shape. 5 pat 3's and everyone the same, 200 yards, not very interesting or fun. Many holes simply play back and forth. Very nice golf carts as someone else stated. Clubhouse is amazing. Overall an ok course but not anywhere near worth normal rates.
