Welcome to Tidewater Golf Club

Perched along the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway, in the heart of the Grand Strand—North Myrtle Beach to be specific, sits the exquisite golf haven, Tidewater Golf Club. Established in 1990, the Tidewater Golf Club has established itself as one of the premier golf experiences in Myrtle Beach and beyond.

Design and Course Layout

As a golf course masterfully designed by Ken Tomlinson, a native of the area and a disciple of the legendary golf architect, Robert Trent Jones, the Tidewater Golf Club is rich with a natural and seamless layout that beautifully integrates with the surrounding Lowcountry landscape.

The play course spans a glorious 18 holes, each with its distinctive challenges and perks. The par-72 layout stretches over an impressive 7,044 yards from the longest tees. Beware though! With a course rating of 74.8 and a slope rating of 144, playing this course is a satisfying test of skill for any golfer that dares to take it up.

The Natural Surrounding

What gives the Tidewater its distinct charm, beyond its incredible layout, are its breathtaking, panoramic views of the South Carolina coastline. Golfers can expect to be greeted with spectacular views of saltwater marshes, dense hardwood forests, vibrant cherry groves, and the serene Intracoastal Waterway.

While playing, golfers might stumble upon some of Tidewater’s native wildlife. Don’t be startled if a deer or two cross your path! The club’s environmental efforts have won it Audubon Society’s coveted recognition for maintaining a sanctuary for wildlife on a golf course.

Signature Holes

Tidewater’s signature holes are the 3rd and the 12th, each offering an unforgettable golfing experience. The third hole features a challenging par-3, a green surrounded by water with a backdrop of the expansive Atlantic Ocean. The twelfth hole, known to many as ‘the Wishing Well,’ is a stunning par-3. Golfers are treated to a tantalizing island green and an iconic, panoramic view of the Cherry Grove, a sight that makes the round well worth it.

Club House and Amenities

After a challenging round, golfers can unwind at the Tidewater’s impressive plantation-style clubhouse. Inside, you’ll find a fully stocked pro shop, where you can fill up on gear or simply browse the latest must-haves from popular golf brands.

The clubhouse is also home to the Tidewater Grille. Here, golfers can satisfy their cravings with an array of delectable treats from the menu, while they enjoy the serene view of the golf course.

Lastly, to help golfers warm up before their game or fine-tune their skills, Tidewater also boasts a sophisticated practice area. This includes a well-manicured putting green, a short game practice area, and a driving range.

Tournaments and Events

Promising excitement and high stakes, the club frequently hosts competitive tournaments and recreational events. This opportunity offers members and visitors a chance to pit their skills against other golf aficionados and learn from their experiences.


Tidewater Golf Club with its enticing blend of immaculate course design, mesmerizing landscapes, and excellent amenities has rightfully earned its place on the must-play list of many golfers. Whether you are a seasoned pro, an amateur golfer, or somewhere in between, a round of golf at the Tidewater is undoubtedly a unique and memorable way to enjoy Myrtle Beach golf.
