I will never forget my first time at The Masters golf course in Augusta, Georgia. With several buddies, I walked through the bushes at the back entrance of number 5 and there before us was the most pristine golf course I have ever looked upon. What a thrill it was. I spent the day walking the course and couldn’t believe there was not one weed anywhere. The landscape was perfect. It’s close to how I see heaven especially when napping on the slop at the Par 3, 6th hole. Laying there with my eyes closed, listening to the excitement throughout the course. This is a very peaceful golf course that leaves its visitors in awe.
I have been to The Master many, many years since and I still get the feeling of awe when I first arrive. It is absolutely beautiful. It’s so much fun to remember this thrill when looking at my Masters golf ball sitting on my display rack at home The real thrill begins once the first tee shot is made. Being with the crowds and watching the best players in the world is indescribable. They make it all look so easy and smooth with graceful swings that rocket their golf ball down the fairways.
Sitting at the 15th hole and being part a the roar when a chip from the rough over water rolls so close to the hole it’s not human, while at the same time hearing the roar from across the course of those witnessing another unbelievable shot is one of the most exhilarating experiences I’ve ever had.
Over the years I have acquired a large Masters golf collection. I have one wall covered with golf ball displays. When friends are over, these displays make great conversation starters. My friends and I enjoy going down memory lane with each year’s golf items collected.
A few years back we purchased a lot on Tidewater Plantation Golf Course in one of the most entertaining holes on the course – Number 14. This hole has a large pond with the 150 yard marker in the front as you approach the green. If your drive doesn’t land where it needs to be, you’re in big trouble. Our lot is located at the drop zone on and by the way we play it, it’s going to be a very entertaining place to sit and observe.
We love this course so much we try to play there a couple of times during our golf vacation week in Myrtle Beach, SC Tidewater is runs along the Intracoastal Waterway and Cherry Grove offering the perfect combination of awesome nature views and challenging play. The architect, Ken Tomlinson combines the style and majesty of some of the game’s greatest venues and delivers an experience that puts this course on the must-play list of many Grand Strand golfers.
The Tidewater community sits on a peninsula overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. A beautiful marsh and ocean inlet adjoin the course on the east while the Intracoastal Waterway runs along several holes on the north and west. Many holes are located in thick stands of hardwoods.
Tomlinson carefully etched this course throughout this varied landscape. His goal was to create the exemplary qualities that would attract a national championship or Ryder Cup event. Flowing with the natural contours of the land, the course challenges you with a range of elevation changes not often found in seaside South Carolina. And as your round progresses, views of the Waterway, marsh and ocean bring fresh inspiration at every turn. This course is graced with ponds filled with turtles. Some are very large and must have been there a long time. The nature that surrounds you is very serene and creates a wonderful atmosphere for a great round of golf.
Holes 3 and 12 are 3 pars that shoot over the marsh area landing on very small greens. Your only choices are hit the green, sand trap or go in the water. Our first day playing Tidewater this trip on hole 12 Will hit the sand, Andy hit water, Suzy hit the green with a huge putt to sink and Linda hit the green extremely close to the pin and made her birdie putt. It was the first birdie of the week! These are the shots that keep bringing us back.
The staff at Tidewater is also exceptional. Will makes some of the most tasty beef jerky around and each year he gives some to the crew that helps clean our clubs at the end of our round. Jimmy remembers us each year because he loves that jerky.
We have many golf collector items from Tidewater Plantation Golf Course. We truly enjoy the memories they bring to mind.read more
