Favorite course in the area- great staff and course. We always play a round when we visit. Never disappointed.

A very fine course in the Myrtle beach area. Amenities are top notch, service at the bag drop was excellent and the course overall is GREAT! I would say it is one of the more challenging courses too. It has a lot of water carry and plenty of opportunity to get in trouble or lose balls. I played pretty well but some in my group struggled badly. Given the cost, (approx $120) I'm not sure it's twice as good as some of the other courses that we play for $60. Don't get me wrong, I was very happy to get the opportunity to play here. If you have the bucks - recommend!!
My family went to NC for Labor Day weekend from Northern Virginia and chose Thistle Golf Club after reading that it is a two-century-old golf club. We had a great experience at this club. The staff was very friendly and we all felt that they really wanted to help the customers. We were taken aback by their enthusiasm in getting us prepared to get on the field by loading our golf bags onto the carts. The carts also had monitors with different options like requesting a replacement cart, ordering food, and even a course map with navigation ability showing the location of the cart and distance from the hole. Thistle Golf Club was the best experience of our Sunset Beach vacation. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a pleasant golfing experience!
