Open since 1999, Thistle Golf Club in Sunset Beach, N.C., has ranked among the “Top 100 Fairways in America” by Golf For Women Magazine and earned 4 stars from Golf Digest's “Places to Play.” Thistle features generous fairways, immaculately manicured greens and exceptional service making it a favorite among Myrtle Beach-area golfers.
This favorited course features 27 holes split between the Cameron, the Mackay, and the Stewart. Each 9-hole set contains 6 different tees to suit the needs of golfers of any skill level.
On top of 27 awesome holes, the Thistle Club also offers a driving range for golfers to work on their drives. The driving range has stations for stretching, a large putting green, and a chipping area complete with a sandtrap.
Formerly, the Thistle Club used bentgrass for their greens, but as it proved to be difficult to maintain in the Carolina heat, the decision was made to recently renovate each 9 to TifEagle Bermuda greens which will be far more resilient to the Sunset Beach climate.
Of course, a notable characteristic of the Thistle Club is the clubhouse. This beautiful structure was built from the muse of an old traditional Thistle Club in Leith, Scotland, that was constructed in the early 1800’s. Using materials that one would find in a building from that time period, the Thistle Clubhouse is considered a “crown jewel” that is untouched by any other clubhouse in the region.
Besides beautiful décor and rich history, the clubhouse also boasts an authentic Scottish inspired pub called the Pot Bunker Pub. Here, golfers can enjoy a meal, or just kick back and have a beer or glass of wine. Other indoor facilities include Leith’s Lounge, the Hickory Hall Private Dining Room, and a boardroom for work or social gatherings.
