Thistle Golf Club is a links-style golf course with 27 impeccably manicured holes of golf nestled right over the North Carolina state line in the Calabash area in Sunset Beach, NC, just a quick 20-minute ride north of Myrtle Beach.

The TifEagle Greens on the Mackay and Stewart and Cameron nines are in pristine condition and fast! The water on this links-style golf course visually comes into play and can make for some memorable shots. Thistle is generous off the tee and many golfers have boasted their “BEST ROUNDS” to be played here.

Thistle Golf Club is very friendly to golfers of all ages and ability levels. In keeping with that, Thistle has added a “Lady’s Pace of Play” teal tee forward of the red tee on the par 4 and par 5’s. Just as the fairway is moaned, a nice, flat tee area for these teal tees has been placed. It has been rated by the Carolina Golf Association so it is a legitimate tee that you can post on for handicap purposes. Thistle is a pace of play course, and they like to stress the 4 to 4 1/2 hour play pace…no 5-hour rounds of golf here!

The gorgeous clubhouse and porch entice golfers in for an after-round meal and beverage and the picturesque grounds and facilities are becoming a wedding destination for many Carolinians.
