Thistle Golf Club: Cameron/Stewart/MacKay
Just over the border in North Carolina, this Myrtle Beach area layout offers 27 holes. The three nines offer great variety, with some holes narrow with water and others wide open with massive bunkers and imposing mounds. At times, the course can have a Scottish links-style feel, with the significant contouring and patches of native grasses. Other times, like at the par-3 island green, it more closely resembles an American resort, with plenty of water in play.

Oyster Bay Golf Links
Sunset Beach, NC
Oyster Bay, just over the border in North Carolina, has a tranquil setting situated on the Intracoastal Waterway, a couple miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Many holes on this Myrtle Beach-area layout are tree-lined doglegs, though some open to the surrounding marshland, especially on the back nine. The signature par-3 17th features a small island green where a precise iron shot is required to avoid the water.
