“Well worth the trip”

Finally had the chance to visit a great friend of mine in Myrtle Beach. He always raved about thistle golf club. I’ve played tons of courses in the area, this one held up to the hype!! Well worth the trip over to play one of the best courses at the beach. Perfect fairways, flat perfect tee boxes and pure rolling ultra fast greens!! At least 11-12’s. Perfectly manicured all over. It’s a must stop to … Read more "“Well worth the trip”"

“Tour Like Shape”

I am a local in Myrtle Beach, and don’t see golf courses in this type of shape very often. Greens were firm and fast, fairways full and tight, and rough full, but fair. If you have the chance its worth the drive for the conditions and great staff.

“Can’t wait to go back”

The course was in excellent condition. The greens were fast and consistent. The staff was helpful and friendly. I look forward to playing here again and again. This has become one of my favorite course in the Myrtle Beach area.

“Thistle is definitely a hidden gem”

Booked a round here through the agent at the place we were staying because he recommended it. Thistle is definitely a hidden gem. The conditions were excellent, staff was professional and friendly, and the layout is fun and challenging for golfers of all skill levels. I would say of the 3 courses I played on my vacation, this was the best. I highly recommend this course to anyone visiting the Myrtle Beach area.

“Nicest course at the beach”

If you are anywhere near the Wilmington/Myrtle Beach area, you owe it to yourself to play a round here. “Perfection” is the only word I can use to describe the whole experience. The course was in immaculate condition and was manicured to a T. In 20 years of playing, this is the nicest course I have ever played. Greens, tee boxes, sand traps, and fairways were in perfect condition. The club house and the memorabilia … Read more "“Nicest course at the beach”"

“Always a top shelf experience”

I think that The Thistle is one of the premier golf courses on the Grand Strand. I live here and I’ve played at least 50 of the area’s 90 + courses, so I have something to compare this course to. The clubhouse looks like an exclusive country club facility, and the restaurant is excellent. The course is challenging but fair, and always very well maintained. I would recommend this course to anyone.

“Put it on your bucket list”

A phenomenal course. My top course to play around Myrtle. Ranks up there with Caledonia. Always manicured to perfection with fast greens!! If you have never played, make it a must and put it on your bucket list!!

“Put this one on your list”

Gorgeous course that you must play if you’re in the area. Layout was challenging, greens were absolutely perfect. Water and sand on the majority of holes makes this a shot makers course. Placement in the fairway and on the green is critical. Greens were the best I’ve played in the area and our group will definitely visit this course again.

“The terrific Thistle Golf Club”

You drive into a beautiful complex with nice houses. The bag drop and clubhouse are top notch with the attendant at bag drop and the person at check in being very efficient, personable and kind. The carts were great and the amenities of the clubhouse and restaurant perfect. Simply an awesome experience from the moment you arrive til the moment you depart Thistle. Everything was pristine with some perfect rolling greens. The tee boxes, the … Read more "“The terrific Thistle Golf Club”"
