"First time playing Tidewater. Course does live up to it's reputation. Beautiful layout, great staff and excellent conditions. The only complaint I could make was that the greens were slow, but it is January after all."

"The layout and location of the course was fantastic. The greens were probably the best greens I've played in a long time. Would have been nice to know about the overseeding and cart path only."

"I read last couple of reviews and was not sure if I should play Tidewater. I did see where they did maintenance around greens but all good now. These greens were the best I played. The only bad part of Tidewater was that they are overseeding and it will be cart path only soon."

"Portions of the fringe around the greens is being repaired on every hole. Really affected play around the greens. Our group and several other groups had to wait between 9 and 10 for them to finish am tee times that go off the front and back. Our wait was 35 mins on the 10th tee to continue our round. When we questioned the staff about the wait they told us it was because we played the front in 2 hrs and the pace of play is 2:15. We waited on every shot on the back 9. Really wish the experience would have been better because the course is really beautiful and scenic. Will give this course 1 more chance in a year or two when the fringes are repaired and will keep in mind they double book tee times in the am."

"Nice layout, poor conditions. Collars around greens have been removed, have to pitch over missing sod. Inconsistent greens. Fairways and tee boxes passable. Not worth the money."

"How the hell is this rated over 6. The greens were a total mess with a 2 foot area of grass cut out around them. Not one true roll all day. Fairways unevenly cut with tons of dried grass on them. Tee boxes mangled. Only the staff and practice area was good. There are many many better price ratios available in Myrtle Beach. At $60 we got ripped off royally. Will never never play this again....."

"It is always a pleasure to play Tidewater. A great mix of holes, some through the southern Pines and some holes along the Inter Coastal and others along the Cherry Grove inlet. The course is in great shape. The rebuilt Mini-verde greens are in excellent condition. Sand traps and tees are in great shape. A must play course."

"Would have been good to know they were going off both tees at 8am as I came around, starter did a great job of getting me in with almost no wait but slowed my round on the second nine. Course and staff were all great, definitely would play again."

"Always love the course. The attendants are fine but somewhat pushy about club cleaning (for tip I presume, although this occurs everywhere at M Beach) Condition was not the best I've experienced at the course but time of year, weather, etc., can vary this very quickly. We'll be back!"

"Great golf course. Most every hole was a challenge. Holes along the marshes and waterways were beautiful. Course experienced a lot of rain earlier in the week so the tees and greens were a bit long. Everyone was very nice. Would play again."

"We played Tidewater today and you can see were it gets its name "The Pebble Beach of the East." It was a very scenic course with very good conditions but a little wet. The course has a very good layout and beautiful views. The whole presence of the course is Cadillac. The staff makes you feel important and treats you better than any other course. Overall it is a must play while in Myrtle Beach."
