Architect - Ken Tomlinson
With its magnificent views of the Intracoastal Waterway, saltwater marshes and Atlantic Ocean...and undulating Bermuda grass greens...Tidewater has been called as pure as the ocean breezes that blow across it. A Steady Stream of Accolades Ranked by Golf Digest as the "Best New Public Golf Course in America" when it opened in 1990, Tidewater continues to maintain a top ranking in North Myrtle Beach. Golf Magazine has ranked Tidewater as one of the premier golf courses in the country every year since recognizing it as one of the top ten new golf courses built in 1990. Now managed by Burroughs & Chapin. Recently rated #39 in Golf Magazine's "Top 100 You Can Play" listing, Tidewater is committed to giving each guest a total golf experience only found at the highest echelon of golf courses.
An Inspired Course Design Designed and built by native South Carolinian Ken Tomlinson, Tidewater reflects his respect for classic turn-of-the-century golf courses created in harmony with the natural landscape. Tomlinson was involved in the entire course development and building process...from the selection of land to the development, design, routing, and construction of the course. In addition to being a golf designer, contractor and real estate developer, Tomlinson is also a tax and business attorney, a member of the South Carolina and Florida Bars and an active member of the USGA and Carolinas Golf Association.
