South-end Gems –

True Blue
Caledonia
Pawleys Plantation

If you like to stay on the south-end with the miles of pristine beaches and the low-country style of cuisine, don’t worry, there are three of the best golf courses in your backyard.  The gems of the south are Pawley’s Plantation Golf and Country Club, True Blue Golf Plantation and Caledonia Golf and Fish Club Courses.

First, set your eyes on Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club that is one of two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area. Opened in 1988, Pawleys was initially slated to operate as a private club but after Hurricane Hugo altered the physical and economic landscapes of the area, the course has been wildly popular with both members and visiting golfers. It is particularly known for its spectacular scenery.  The first dozen holes weave through coastal pine and forest and around freshwater lakes before bursting onto expansive saltwater marshland on the back nine. The par threes on the back nine are among the most photogenic and treacherous in the state, demanding significant carries over the marsh amid often-swirling winds.  Although extremely beautiful, the challenges are there for you to enjoy.

Another great course on the south-end is True Blue Golf Plantation boosting both beauty and brawn coupling its appearance and design together making this a very popular course. Built atop a five-century old rice and indigo plantation, this lowcountry layout features pristine salt marshes and wetlands, along with maritime forests of live oaks and pines. The golf course itself was designed to harmonize with the natural terrain. This course was designed by renowned designer Mike Stranz, where he strategically placed water hazards and bunkers scattered throughout the course.


With tree-lined fairways, meticulously maintained greens made of TifEagle Bermuda, golfers of all handicaps have a tough challenge on their hands, yet they return year after year for more. 

Finally, there is Caledonia Golf and Fish Club  where the incredible natural beauty and design has been recognized America’s leading golf publications. Built on an historic rice plantation surrounded by centuries-old live oaks, the beautiful sweeping views of this Mike Strantz design make for a truly memorable day of golf.  You will notice all of the plantings throughout the golf course that make you feel like you are in a botanical garden.  Caledonia is part arboretum, part golf course. It plays only about 6,500 yards from the back tee, but its par of 70 makes it play a bit longer, as do many greens where rear hole locations can add some 20 yards to the length of the hole. The relatively unheralded par three third is such a hole, where a nearly 60-yard long green encourages players to hit low tee shots that scurry up part or all of the putting surface towards a middle or rear hole location. And then there’s the famous par four 18th, clubhouse looking over the green, lake guarding right side of the hole.

While planning your next Myrtle Beach vacation to the south-end, relax and enjoy, the planning just got easier with some of the top golf courses in the area.  See you soon in Myrtle Beach.
