We stopped at this course on the way back from another in the area to see if we could get in another nine before it got dark. We got a nice twilight rate and the starter got us out without a problem. The course was in nice shape and had some interesting holes. Definitely not an easy course, but one... More

Played Thistle on a recent trip to Myrtle Beach. We had a couple of groups. The golf course was in really good shape. The greens were nice and rolled true. This is a beautiful facility. The course is well worth playing. The pro shop folks were friendly. Personally do not like the way the bag drop area was being run.... More

The course is definitely not boring, a lot of interesting holes, but definitely not easy for the average golfer. Even though it is a semi links course If your ball ventures off the fairway there are a lot of places where you will lose it. A write up I read touted the great number of Scotches served at the bar... More

We have been coming to Myrtle Beach for the last 3 summers and played and least 5 golf games each time on different course. Based on the 15 golf courses or so we I played, Thistle Golf tops them all. Great challenging course, well maintained, beautiful greens, great clubhouse, good service, etc... I am surprised at the negative reviews, but... More

We have played here at least 3 times each year for the past 4 years. The last occasion was in Oct 2013, just as ownership changed & we were keen to see if anything had changed on this visit. We did notice that the tee times had changed from 12 mins apart to 8 mins apart but as we were... More

The employees were arogant, rude , unprofessional, and lied...we booked the round and I went in their clubhouse the day before we were to play and was assured our rate was $29.00 per player when we showed up they wanted to charge us $85. Then they said $49 and we should be glad to get on such a nice course... More

First, let me say that I have been coming here each Spring for 15 years with my brothers and we enjoyed it each time. Never again!!! When I booked a tee time for 6/13, I asked if they aerated the greens. They said they would put us on the two nines that have not been aerated, When we paid and... More

Played Thistle for the first time last month. 8 guys on our 12th annual golf trip, 11 to Myrtle Beach. The bag drop guys were very pleasant. And the clubhouse is just spectacular. But the course left a lot to be desired. We played Stewart to McKay nines. It was very difficult, none of us having played it before, to... More

Have played this course 50+ times, course is in great shape, bag staff and dining staff are terrific. New ownership took over in October of last year, staff inside the pro shop (Dennis somebody) was a jerk. Accused one of our players of trying to secure a local rate even though they charged us local rates 2 days before and... More

I wrote a review about the Thistle approx 18 months and I was very high on this course. Well, things have changed slightly at the Thistle. The course was still in really good shape, the guys who help unload your clubs are still really nice/helpful and the price is reasonable (also, they give you plenty of range balls versus the... More
