GOLF

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club: The accolades have never stopped rolling in for this course: Golf Digest’s “100 Greatest Public Courses in America,” GOLF Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play” and Golfweek’s “America’s Best Modern Courses” lists have all included Caledonia repeatedly in its 22 years of operation. From the initial approach down the avenue of ancient oaks to the final approach to the 18th green, visitors are captivated by the artistic vision of designer Mike Strantz. With holes routed around majestic oaks and meandering streams, Caledonia deserves to be on every golfers list of “must play” courses. Located at 369 Caledonia Drive in Pawleys Island (see map). www.caledoniagolfandfish club.com (800) 483-6800

True Blue Golf Club and Steve Dresser Golf Academy: Just across King’s River Road is another display of architect Mike Strantz’s unique imagination: True Blue Golf Club. Strantz trans- formed an 18th-century rice and indigo plantation into a truly memorable layout. Since opening in 1998, True Blue Plantation has been ranked among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses” and declared the number-one public course in the Myrtle Beach area by Golf Digest. The facility is also home to the acclaimed Steve Dresser Golf Academy, with a full staff of experienced teaching professionals.

Founders Club: Located on the quiet, tranquil southern end of the Grand Strand in Pawleys Island, Founders Club originally opened in 1969 as Sea Gull Golf Club. The course was completely re- designed by Thomas Walker and reopened in 2008 to rave reviews. Walker maintained the corridors of most of the holes but introduced a thoroughly modern aesthetic and type of shaping, moving more than 250,000 cubic yards of dirt and bringing the course boldly into the 21st century. Walker replaced much of the long rough with sandy waste areas that allow for creative recovery shots by players at every level. It is the only course on the Grand Strand to use Emerald Bermuda grass on its greens, which are known for excellent conditions year-round. Located at 7829 Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island (see map). www.Southern BeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021

Litchfield Country Club: When Litchfield Country Club opened in 1966, it was the first course on the historic Waccamaw River neck. It is set among giant oaks and shimmering lakes on the site of a former Carolina rice plantation. Over the last 50 years, the course has kept original features that include bump-and-run approach shots. The gracious charm and traditional layout of this exclusive club are enjoyed by a limited number of visiting golfers. Ranked as one of the “World’s 50 Best” by Conde Nast Traveler, Litchfield Country Club has a course rating of 71.2 and a slope rating of 128 from the white tees. The par-four 18th hole is featured in the book The 100 Greatest Holes Along the Grand Strand. Located at 21 Parkview Drive in Pawleys (see map). www.SouthernBeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021

Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club: This Jack Nicklaus- designed course is ranked among some of the finest in the Carolinas, with a classic Lowcountry design that you can play over and over and never hit the same shot twice. It has been named one of “America’s Top Courses” by Zagat Survey and is ranked in the top 30 of South Carolina’s more than 300 golf courses, according to Golf World. With subtle greens enveloped by sand bunkers, challenging fairways dotted with water and unique obstacles evident on every hole, this is a player’s course that demands strategy, ingenuity and concentration. “You’ll have to think your way around this course,” Nicklaus advises, but “as for beauty, on a scale from one to 10, it’s pretty close to a 10.” Located at 70 Tanglewood Drive in Pawleys (see map). www.SouthernBeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021

River Club: Built on a former rice plantation, this Tom Jackson course features water on 15 out of 18 holes, some man-made and some preexisting, along with more than 100 sand traps and bunkers. It is a premiere plantation course and a favorite among returning golfers. Long hitters have some room off the tees, but approach shots need to be true. Hole number 18 is one of the re- gion’s finest finishing holes. A dramatic par five, it offers both risk and reward to those who can carry the water twice for a possible chance at an eagle. River Club has a course rating of 70.2 and a slope rating of 129 from the white tees. The 14th and 18th holes are featured in the book The 100 Greatest Holes Along the Grand Strand. Boasting a 4.5-star rating, this is also one of the highest rated courses in Golf Digest’s Places to Play. Located on Club Circle in Pawleys (see map). www.SouthernBeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021

Tradition Golf Club: Come play the course ranked 4.5 stars by Golf Digest and awarded South Carolina’s “Golf Course of the Year” in 2000. Also voted “Top Fairways” by Golf for Women and nom  inated “Best New Public Course” in 1996 by Golf Digest. Built on the rolling terrain of a 16th-century plantation, Tradition Club is a Ron Garl course designed in the tradition of the great courses from around the world. Test both your power on large landing areas that allow for big swings off the tee and your accuracy against well-guarded greens that require precise shot making. Combined with exceptional beauty, it’s a course that is as enjoyable to play as it is challenging. Located on Willbrook Boulevard in Pawleys (see map). www.SouthernBeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021

Willbrook Plantation: Built on the site of two Carolina rice plantations and designed by Dan Maples, Willbrook is set in a centuries- old oak forest. The course was featured on Nature Scene, an award-winning television show known for promoting the peaceful coexistence of golfers and nature. Hole number 15, a par five, showcases Maples’ talent for incorporating in his design the many challenges of the wetlands, waterways and stately old oaks. Will- brook Plantation has a course rating of 70.5 and a slope rating of 128 from the white tees. Golf for Women ranked Willbrook Plantation as one of the “Top 100 Courses for Women.” The first and 15th holes are featured in the book The 100 Greatest Holes Along the Grand Strand. Located on Willbrook Boulevard in Pawleys (see map). www.SouthernBeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021

TPC Myrtle Beach: Located in the southern half of the Grand Strand, TPC boasts the area’s only course design that is rated 5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” guide. This Tom Fazio-de- signed, 18-hole championship golf course lives up to its billing from the entrance all the way to the 19th hole, and it delivers an incredible experience for all golfers. One of Golf Digest’s “Top 100 Public Courses in America” and voted into the “Top 10 Golf Courses of South Carolina” by Golfweek, TPC Myrtle Beach is an absolute must-play. It tests golfers on every single shot, but greatly rewards good swings with plenty of opportunities to score. Meas- uring 6,950 yards from the tournament tees, TPC will keep you on your toes from start to finish. Located at 1199 TPC Boulevard in Murrells Inlet (see map). www.SouthernBeachGolf.com (800) 882-1021
