1815 Olde Thistle Downs Dr SW
Sunset Beach, NC 28468-4829

Thistle Golf Club is a high-end 27-hole facility on the Grand Strand. Thistle takes its name from the ca.-1800s Scottish golf society of the same name and likewise, Tim Cate's course design intentionally echoes a Scottish links feel, with surrounding hillsides covered in heather and wild flowers.

At least three teaching professionals are available at this facility, includes 18-year LPGA tour player Marlene Floyd, sister of PGA Tour star Raymond Floyd. She hosts a "For Women Only Golf School" several times each year.

Rates range between $55 and $120 depending on the season and time of day.

Course in great condition and really scenic! Clubhouse looks like a Scottish castle. Staff very courteous. Few homes along the courses. Play it!!

I try to play Thistle at least once/year, more often if I can find a way. The course is challenging but not punishing, i.e. very fair. the staff is always courteous, and the facility spectacular. I think they use a 12 minute interval so you almost always feel that you're the only ones on the course. It is always a relaxing round.

Very Nice Course; played Mackay and Stewart; loved the holes and greens were in great shape. Would love to play Cameron next time I am in the area. Front Desk recommended the Boundary Restaurant in Calabash for dinner; was fabulous.

One of the best courses I played this year.

This course has an amazing layout and a lot of character. Each hole is really nice. We were surprised that the fairways were still just turning green in mid-April. We were expecting the fairways to be plush and green. A few more weeks and it should be perfect. One of the nicest and coolest clubhouses you will ever see. They had the price at $45 the day we played and I assume it was because the course still wasn't in perfect condition.

Very nice course. It was a little dry when we played but overall in great condition. Very nice staff and pace of play was very good.

In my opinion this is not up to the Myrtle Beach experience.

Great course
  CFoetisch - 3/18/12
In my opinion, this is a must play when in the Myrtle Beach area. Agree with bubbagolf, this course is good test of golf and playing the correct tees will make your round more enjoyable. Definitely in the top 10 of Myrtle Beach golf courses.

One of the best the Myrtle Beach area has to offer. Well worth it, and my group will be back for years to come.
