What a great way to start my Myrtle Beach golf adventure with a round yesterday at the Tidewater Golf Course & Plantation. My buddies and I thoroughly enjoyed our round with great weather, great customer service, food and of course the odd cold beer. Here's my top 3 holes from yesterday's round.
Tidewater #13 - Par 5 475 yd. White Tees
Just a great little par 5 along the Inter Coastal Waterway with great views all along the right side of the hole. While not a long par 5 with a straightaway fairway this hole is tough if your not in the right spot on the fairway for your 2nd or 3rd shot. When you get to the green be prepared for a tricky putt depending on what level of the green your on. I managed a nice right to left putt for par on this hole but a three putt would not be uncommon.
Tidewater #4 - Par 4 400 yd. White Tees
Another beautiful hole along the Inter Coastal Waterway. Very Pebble Beach like this hole can play very difficult if the wind is up. Long on this hole is deadly as this #1 handicap hole will yield a high number for a golfer of any level. Be sure to stay below the hole as you want an uphill putt on this tricky green.
Tidewater #12 - Par 3 145 yd. White Tees
The most scenic par 3 at Tidewater. This signature hole has a love/hate vibe. The amount of balls in the water will test your distance control so depending on the winds you might want to club up or down. With lots of bunkers front and right side getting on the green will be difficult on this short 145 yd. Good luck and let it fly.
