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.
Great Golf Course
Enjoyed our round of golf on a well maintained, challenging and open course. Played Cameron and Steward. Great carts and wonderful experienced staff. Played only one round while in Myrtle Beach, glad it was here.
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!
Average at best
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.
Mowing while you swing!
Greens had been plugged the week before, no notification was given to us about these greens until we got to the 1st one, putting green was perfect! A groundskeeper mowed on the tee box directly behind the box we were on and continued to mow the entire time our group hit, very unprofessional, they must be treaching that there because the poor guy had no idea when we confronted him! Overall it's a great course but we payed too much for the way the greens played!
This was a great course. I just wished I would have known the greens had just been aerated.
Course is very nice!
Course was in fantastic shape. Greens had been punched 10-14 days ago but not bad. If greens were better I would've given 5-stars. Rained during 2nd nine and they did give a 9 hole raincheck which was nice and much appreciated. Staff was very kind and I'll definitely go back to play. Don't miss this gem!
This is a great course with a very challenging layout. It was fun to play even though the conditions were very wet and the greens had been airrated. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The best golf carts on the Grand Strand. We truly enjoyed our experience:
Amazing time playing today. I missed my original tee time due to a personal situation and they were very accommodating. Definitely thoughtful individuals in the pro shop. I went by myself and on multiple occasions, I was approached by staff asking me how my round was going. The greens are apparently still recovering from a chemical issue a couple of months ago, but most greens seemed in awesome shape. I do wish that someone would have tried to pair to me up with another group, as I consistently caught up to foursomes and had to play through, feeling rushed...which I felt hurt my score and enjoyment on those holes. Grounds crew costantly working. Starters and staff were very helpful and courteous. I would certainly play again!
Great track with some teeth! When we played, the wind was blowing which added to the difficulty. Great layout and I don't thunk there is a bad hole on the course. Service is 5 star.
Add this course to your must play list and bring a few extra balls!
A thunder storm hit the area right before we played! We thought the course would be soaked but we were soooo wrong. The course was still in great shape. I couldn't believe it. The course is definitely fun to play! Very impressed. Greens still rolled about 10-11 after the rain!
Easily in top 5 MB courses!
Highly recommend! First time to play at Thistle. Played all 3 nines despite some thunderstorms. Staff very friendly and helpful. The cart guys even saved my score card and water jug when I dashed into the clubhouse to escape the rain.
Course conditions were superb. Even bunkers well maintained. Greens have totally recovered from the fertilizer burn in May. Great variety of long and short par 4s.
Only negatives are no GPS on carts, so bring a range finder or GPS if you have one, and all par 3s seemed to be about 170-180. I just moved to a different tee box to create some variety.
Played the Thistle for the first time. Paired with a member--extremely nice man. Course was in immaculate condition--excellent for shot making and use of all the clubs in your bag. Would play again if I can find the same rate!
Back on top!
Great conditions, greens are sweet, recovered from whatever ailed them . First off, played in 2:15. :)
