1815 Olde Thistle Club Road
Sunset Beach, NC 28468-4829, United States

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.

I played it for the first time this year. Great course but tough on a windy day. It is a must play when you're in Myrtle Beach.

Heading down for the 3rd time in March. This course is exquisite and the staff are dynamite. This is the nicest run I ever need to play; I only wish I lived closer.
