With the entrance with all the spanish moss you drive in knowing its about to be a great golf experience everything is in top notch conditions and the design is so good with True Blue as their sister property next door it might be one of the best 36 public design wise. Staff was excellent at every turn and cant wait to go back
Simply one of the best you can play in/around Myrtle Beach
Nearing the quarter-century mark, Caledonia remains one of the bucket-list picks for any Myrtle Beach-bound golfer. Its exquisite Lowcountry charm, coupled with its precious and fascinating Mike Strantz design makes it a memorable, fun course to play.
Caledonia is one of the shorter golf courses in the region, but it defends itself gamely with a terrific set of undulating greens and some impressively deep, sculpted bunkering. If you treat the course like a chessboard, rather than a bombing range, you will likely score to your handicap or better, as scoring chances do present themselves throughout the round. Even if things don't go according to plan, it's exceedingly difficult to get too upset in such a beautiful setting.
What a beautiful course. Played as a single on a weekday late afternoon off-season and had a chance to really enjoy the course. From the tree lined drive to the 18th green, this place is a top notch golf experience. The layout is wonderful and the course architect did a great job of retaining some of the beautiful old trees throughout the course. The course itself is challenging yet not overwhelming and is very well maintained. It may cost more than the other area courses, but it is worth it. I fell into a late day $69 rate and it was worth every penny.
One of the best
I live in Charleston SC so Myrtle Beach is about an hour away. Fortunately we have a huge number of excellent courses that are good for a day trip; Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Kiawah, Hilton Head, etc.. Caledonia is near the top of the list. The course is absolutely gorgeous. I have played this course four times now and look forward to it every time. Everything about the experience is first class.
13 Holes due to Rain but still worth it
So we only got through 13 holes before thunderstorms ended our day but the 13 holes were just perfect. I try to play here at least once a year specifically in the summer when rates are at their lowest. The course does not play long but like many Strantz courses it pays to know the course and to play smart. The greens were absolutely pure all you had to do was roll it on the right line and it would be in. Aside from course conditions I comeback here for the beauty of the grounds and the friendly staff. Driving down the entrance road every time is a cool sight every time.
The entire experience was amazing. It all starts once you enter the gate. A long driveway with overhanging trees sets the tone for the club. The staff was very friendly and informative. Course was in great shape from tee to green. Due to prior tournament play, the greens were rolling at a 8 or 9 (Wish we would have caught them at 11 or 12). Course layout is done very well. It is important to hit GIR. The elevated greens and greenside bunkers will make it very difficult to get up and down. After the round we ate lunch in the dining hall. The menu provides an excellent variety. Based on the groups feedback the food was very good. We definitely will be returning. Side note: This was part of a weekend package. We played Tidewater, Fazio, and Caledonia. I would rank these three courses: (1) Caledonia (2) Tidewater (3) Fazio.
One of our favorites of the trip! This is stunning layout. The only downside is no driving range (which we knew about). The staff and facilities were great. Definitely recommend this course!
Must Play In Myrtle Beach
The ambiance of this place is incredible. Southern oaks with the Spanish moss, the flowers, landscaping, etc. It's like playing golf at a botanical garden.
Course was in outstanding shape. We love going to this place every year.
Fantastic. My favorite course anywhere. Well Done!
Best course in MB - Hands Down Must Play!
We played 6 courses in MB this trip. Every course indicated that the winter hit them and that greens were beat up because of the freeze. I'm not sure what was different with Caledonia, but the course conditions were absolutely perfect. The greens felt like they were never played on and rolled perfectly true. This is a short but great test of golf. If you go to MB for golf, you'll do yourself a great disservice if you don't play this course. Worth every penny! The only drawback is lack of on site driving range (at sister course True Blue).
Having played this course last year in wet conditions I was really looking forward to my return this year. We showed up Tuesday to spectacular golf conditions and a course in awesome condition. The first 9 holes 10-18 were a treat. However, the next 9 not so much. Yes the course was still in great shape and beautiful but we waited on every hole on this side. As last year. There was a promotion on the second hole par 3. Three foursomes on the hole. It slowed play down to a crawl and made the rest of the round unenjoyable. As pretty as this course is. I will never go back. For the amount of money you pay to play, you should not have to play in those conditions.
Beautiful course, overpriced
The course is beautiful but definitely not worth the rate. I don’t go to Pawley’s often to play and this has solidified me never going again. I was not impressed with the course overall. For the rate, I was expecting something special. It’s just average. I think the fact that there is no driving range really ruined it for me.
Course had no GPS, few yardage markers and no hole maps on tee markers. The rough was high! Then they want you to play quickly? Course was in good condition and had some good holes. It was obvious they were protecting par by growing the rough because the course is short. Not worth the money unless you want to play a short course. Driving it 280 doesn't help much here because if you're off the fairway, the ball sinks to the bottom of their too high rough. Now your searching for the ball that you can'r find until you step on it. Next you need to find a yardage marker which is tough because many of the sprinkler heads are unmarked and the carts don't have GPS! For this kind of money, I'm sure they can upgrade the carts.
Superb Golf Course
I own a place in the Pawley's Island, SC area and have always wanted to play at Caledonia, but none of my playing partners wanted to pay the rate. A buddy from Texas flew in for a few days so I treated him to the round.
The playing conditions were sketchy because of rain. It had rained 4 inches in the past 24 hours, it rained another 1-1 1/2 inches while we played the round. We had to wait 20 minutes once for rain to stop and then drain from the green. Plus, we were cart path only (which I usually avoid like the plague), making the playing conditions tougher.
Still, Caledonia held true to its reputation as a top golf course. My 2-star rating of the course conditions is because of the rain, that day. On a dry day, the course conditions are definitely 5-star.
We played the round, I scored a 79, which is way good considering my handicap there is 14 or 15.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND and I will definitely return.
Must play course
If you are in the area this is a must play course. The premium cost is justified by the entire experience. Being greeted in a very professional way at the bag drop and the extremely professional manor of every employee we had contact with right through to the cold towels at the end of play.
The course conditions were excellent and pace of play was right at 4 hrs, Greens are quick and have subtle breaks that take a little getting used to. The fairways tee and tee boxes are smooth and very well maintained.
Make sure you play the right tee box , do not let your ego get in the way or it could ruin your day. On the advice of the starter, based on my handicap, I played the Mallard tees and the advice was right on. The carry distances were spot on for the par 4 and par 5 holes and the par 3 holes were of comfortable but challenging lengths .
Definite risk reward situations if you like to push your self or talk trash with your buddies.
It is also one of the most scenic courses I have played in a while.
High expectations .. almost lived up to it
When you pay the walk up rate of $149 your expectations tend to be high. on arrival from the airport to the course I found out that the range is at the true blue course for which you have to get back in the car and drive over too. They do offer a short game area however you have to bring your own balls and guys are hitting in every direction possible . We had the first afternoon tee time after a morning tournament and were warned by the staff that they were running behind . They put us off on 10 hoping The pace would be faster . The front nine plays much easier than the back ,course conditions were excellent, there is no GPS on the carts, they do offer a free app as a yardage book . You need to be careful where you place your Tee ball because sometimes you are blocked by overhanging trees to the green. I did enjoy the Caledonia salad afterwards and was able to shower in the locker room. I would play again however I will wait for a discounted rate
This place never disappoints. Must play when at Myrtle Beach
That's what your gonna say right from the beginning entrance drive down the tunnel of oaks and Spanish moss. We caught a break on the price cause they were running a special in conjunction with Folds of Honor where you donated $10 on top of the greens fees. Cost $69!! Somebody call a cop! Anyway, As you would expect with such a pricey course( prime rounds are around $150) it was in magnificent condition from tee to green. It's annually voted by popular Golf magazines as one of the top 100 you can play and they ain't joking. Great layout with 3 tees to chose from. Not overly long but accuracy is a key if you want to score here. Greens were impeccable. the only gripe i could come up with is the lack of yardage markers. I'd suggest bringing your range finder. If money is not an object get down here and play this course or you can wait til the off season and get it slightly cheaper. It does not disappoint,
