Par 72 – 7,044 yrds – 144 Slope

 

For our second spherical of golf in Myrtle Seaside we booked at tee time for 9am at Tidewater. From all the things we may see on-line, this course had nice rankings, all of the views you might ask for and a few difficult golf holes. Designed by architect Ken Tomlinson, Tidewater Golf Membership is nestled between the Intracoastal Waterway and Cherry Grove, which makes for some improbable surroundings and an abundance of wildlife. After we arrived on the course we have been impressed with how lush the grass was. We performed Tidewater in mid-April and fortuitously for us, Myrtle Seaside had acquired extra rain than anticipated in March, so the fairways, greens and timber we’re vigorous and coloration. In truth, when speaking to the GM, he instructed that they have been going to start reducing the greens twice a day to maintain up with how briskly the Bermuda grass was rising. In a sometimes heat and primarily dry local weather, that is an superior downside to have.

In truth, the day we performed, we had just a little rain to take care of as properly, however we didn’t let that cease us from having fun with a day on the hyperlinks. Whereas our day at Tidewater Golf Membership was lower a bit brief as a result of some lightning within the space, I do wish to discuss a couple of holes on the entrance 9 that have been actually spectacular and difficult, akin to holes #1, #3, #4 and #6. Whereas this course appears pretty open and welcoming from the tee field, don’t assume you’ll be able to depart your “A” recreation at dwelling, since you’re going to want it!

From left to proper, holes #1, #3, #4 and #6

Beginning out on gap #1, this can be a pretty inventory 526 yard par-5 that means that you can unleash your driver proper out of the gate. Timber on the suitable and on the left name for a properly positioned drive. Nevertheless, for those who spray it just a little, you gained’t be punished an excessive amount of. No less than there’s no bunkers… properly, till you get able to hit you second shot. In the event you’re fortunate sufficient to hit a bomb down the golf green, you’ll have an opportunity at getting on in two. Nevertheless, the inexperienced is protected brief and lengthy on left, so a layup or a properly struck lengthy iron or wooden is the play. In the event you’re going for it. The bail-out is to the proper facet of the inexperienced, these bunkers are not any joke! Total, I like this as a beginning gap. I’m not at all times over enthused about kicking issues off on a par-5 however this was enjoyable and received me loosened up immediately.

Gap #3 is the place you’ll wish to have your digicam prepared. Carved into the Intracoastal Waterway, this par-3 is spectacular. With an epic view of Myrtle Seaside within the background and birds swooping the waterway, it’s simple to neglect you’re enjoying golf. That is a kind of holes that you just don’t thoughts if the group in entrance of you is enjoying just a little sluggish. “No downside, Henry… take your time with that 4 footer for double bogey!”

In any case, this par-3 requires a properly struck iron shot to a multi-tiered inexperienced protected on each facet by sand. It’s nearly just like the architect hypnotizes you with the fantastic thing about the outlet, after which “snap!” again to actuality, you should hit a difficult tee shot. As soon as on the inexperienced, relying on the place the pin is situated, yow will discover your self with some tough putts. Till now, we haven’t actually talked about the greens. Properly, they’re Bermuda and they’re excellent. The tempo is quick, teetering on the actually quick, which I like. That is the outlet I’d suggest grabbing your golf companions and taking a photograph collectively. The surroundings is admittedly that good.

When you step off gap #3, you’re within the cart and on to #4. That is one gap I want I may neglect. That is the #1 handicap gap on the course and it straight up beat me down! From the blacks, it performs 430 yards with a dogleg to the left. Bunkers and timber on the suitable, inescapable marsh on the left. A stable tee shot is a necessity. Sadly for me, I left my draw at dwelling and swooped my ball into the timber on the suitable. The right solution to get off the tee field can be to take driver (or much less) and play a pleasant draw someplace on the left facet of the golf green. If you are able to do that you’re golden. Properly, till you need to stare down your strategy shot right into a inexperienced that (and get used to this) is properly protected by bunkers in all instructions. In the event you can handle to stroll off this inexperienced with par or higher I wish to shake your hand, as a result of I made a snowman and couldn’t wait to get to the subsequent tee field. I’d love to return and play this gap about 5 extra instances. I’m guessing I may make par one out of the 5 instances and I’d be pleased with that.

Earlier than mom nature abruptly kicked us off the course we teed it up on #6. This was a enjoyable par-4 that brings a few ponds into play, but it surely additionally introduced my recreation again into play after the whoppin’ I took on #4. With a properly struck tee shot within the fairway you’ll be able to simply go on the pin in two, however watch out of falling brief. There’s a small creek that join the brief left pond and green-side pond. I feel that is the one gap on the course that doesn’t have a bunker. In the event you can land it on the inexperienced you’ll have an honest putt to make birdie or par. I’m actually joyful gap #6 was there for me simply once I wanted it.
