The drive down the entrance, lined with centuries old oaks, to the antebellum-style clubhouse, sets the stage for one of the great golf experiences anywhere, not just Myrtle Beach SC.
Built upon the site of a working southern rice plantation, Caledonia has been recognized for its classic Mike Stranz design as much as its incredible beauty. Thousands of annual and semiannual flowers bloom every year throughout the property, further adding to the beauty of the experience.
Since opening to the public in January 1994, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club has rapidly gained a reputation as one of the premier courses in America. Strantz approached his assignments in a unique way—as an artist, rather than an engineer. His exceptionally creative eye is reflected in the way he sculpted Caledonia’s 18 holes, with large, creative greens guarded at times by ponds, streams and imposing bunkers.
The same sort of majestic live oaks that overhang the entryway into Caledonia similarly frames many of the shots at Caledonia, giving the course a rustic feel. Thousands of annual and semiannual flowers bloom every year throughout the property, further adding to the beauty of the experience.
No houses encumber the interior of the property—the joy of playing golf is left alone by the worry of hitting a ball into someone’s backyard.
It has been ranked in Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play,” named one of “America’s 100 greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest, and continues to be ranked as one of “America’s 100 Best Modern Courses” by Golfweek.
