Very Nice!

A very beautiful and fun course! The waterway combined with great course conditions makes for a scenic and enjoyable experience. For an area (Myrtle Beach) that is having issues with their greens, this course is not. The Greens were in great condition and rolling about a 10. A new favorite that I will definitely revisit.

Maybe there was too much hype?

First things first... The winter has not been kind to NC/SC. Greens everywhere are beaten up by alternating heat waves and cold snaps. That being said, Tidewater is a great layout. Very challenging, but not unfair, and hugely fun. Facilities are great, free range and well kept clubhouse. The people working the pro shop were a bit rude. The starter, John, was awesome. Very friendly and informative. The ranger, another older gentleman, was a complete jerk. Very rude and condescending to our group, definitely enough to make us think about coming back. There's no excuse for that at a course that has such a premium price tag. We will be back when conditions are better in the area, hopefully our ranger friend will not be.

Nice Layout, Greens Poor

Played Friday, for the first time. Winter has not been kind, to most of the Myrtle Beach Area courses. The greens for the money, are not good. Played all week, Monday thru Sunday in the Myrtle area, and their greens were the worst. Would have been nice to have been told, when making tee times about the greens. Other courses' the greens were not as bad. The pro shop staff, were friendly, starters and rangers, friendly. Food and waitress, in the restaurant, were fine. Course is challenging.

As good as advertised

Everything good you read about this course is true. The course has a great design and features a great variety of holes from short, tempting par fours to long par fives that you never think you are going to reach. The views are tremendous, whether is the marshland, waterways, or the Atlantic, you don't get tired of the views-even though the wind coming off of the water can present a heck of a challenge. I played this course in late March when a lot of courses were struggling with their conditions and Tidewater was in great shape. I can't imagine how good it is in peak season. If you have a chance, play this course!

Another consistent round at Tidewater. I have played this course roughly 6-8 times over the past 3 years and each time it has met my expectations. There are several unique holes on the course that visually remind you that it's vacation time. The #4 Par 4 is far and away my favorite hole of the many courses I've played in the Northern end of Myrtle Beach. The # 8 Par 5 is also a very under rated hole with a great view of the Coquina Yacht Club area from the tee box. The course conditions have been above average every time I have played which only includes trips in February, July and September. In spring, I can only imagine how great of shape it's in. The amenities are top notch as well. A great driving range placed perfectly between #1 and #10 which makes warming up before you tee off a breeze. The food is maybe the best golf course food i've ever had. Great breakfast and lunch items as well as mixed drinks and good beer selection. It's one of the few courses that I don't stop off for food before my round. It's not the place to play if you are looking for a fast round. The challenging Par 3's tend to jam groups up from time to time and there's a good 20-30 minutes of just driving from hole to hole. It's a very large property to navigate around. 4.5-5 hours should be expected, more on a hectic day. That said, even on a slow day you'll enjoy being there with such great scenery.

You will enjoy this course

Everything about this golf course is enjoyable. Condition of the fairways and greens was very good for this time of the year. Greens will speed up in the spring and summer. The layout is challenging, two picturesque par threes along the intercostal Both with all carry and well protected. No hidden hazards, everything is visible. You will not be disappointed.

Slow Pace

Great course as long as you don't mind paying $150+ for a round over 5 hour. No rangers to be found
