Course designer Mike Stranz has truly built a Lowcountry masterpiece, with fertile landscape of twisted live oaks and towering pines, tidal creeks and salt marshes as the backdrop for this magnificent course. True Blue Golf Plantation has been recognized by Golf Digest as the “No. 1 Public Course in the Myrtle Beach Area”, and made the list of “America’s Top 100 Public Courses.” The most recognized holes at True Blue are actually the first set of holes that includes two par 5’s and an island green par 3. Players that survive the first four at close to “their par” are setup for a good scoring day. So be ready at the first tee.

One of the Grand Strand’s premier designs along with sister course Caledonia, True Blue Golf Plantation has recently earned an overall rating of 8.8 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course conditions, scenic views, and course layout.

No GPS, cart paths difficult and poorly maintained. No club scrubbers. Course layout was confusing and inconvienient.

One of my new favorite courses. Immaculate condition only a few weeks after the hurricane. Greens were perfect and held good shots unlike the hardness of many of the Myrtle Beach courses that are rock hard.

Course layout was amazing and the conditions were the same. Plush, carpeted fairways ran uninterrupted all the way to pristine greens. Course has lots of characters and is more of a cousin to Caledonia as opposed to a sister course. Of the Strantz courses I have played True Blue is more closely related to Tot Hill Farms with a dash of Tobacco Road thrown in. Club house is small, but nice with very friendly staff. Restaurant food was excellent, but 2/3 of the staff were less than friendly. The back patio is very similar to Caledonia in that people can sit out back and eat and drink while watching golfers hit long irons into a green surrounded by water on the left and back. The golf boards are absolutely amazing! Very tricky the first couple of holes, but once we got the hang of them we were sold. Definitely the highlight of the trip! I highly recommend them. Just be careful not to almost plow over the lovely cart caddy Olivia as I almost did! Blasted sticky acclerator!:)

We played here in April last year and the course condition was awful so was a bit concerned about it. However, this trip the condition was very good. The pro shop is well stocked and we all thought the grill was a level above other clubs in the area. One positive (negative?) is that many of the fairways are very wide so accuracy off the tee is not essential. Overall, the whole experience was very impressive and well worth another return visit.

After all the rains, cart path only which makes for a long day, but still a great course with beautiful holes. It played extremely long because of the wet conditions but I would return in a heartbeat. We got a deal and paid just $59 a person which was good. I wouldn't pay some of the standard fees for this course but it was worth the money. The girl at the bag drop was very friendly and helpful advising us of some of the other area courses to play. Pace was great because of the 10 minute tee times, not 8. Wide open fairways but LOTS of sand and water as well. A great day.

What a beautiful course. Unfortunately we played the day after it had 3 of rain. Cart path only, and the starter told us to try and keep our round at 4.5 hrs. The bigger joke was that they came around timing us to ensure that we were compliant. I would to play the course under dryer conditions. The greens were great the fairways manicured nicely, but the course was just too wet to really enjoy it to its fullest. The waste areas are a visual distraction off the tee for sure, but if you missed the fairway and landed in one, they were so firm there was no problem hitting out. The greenside bunkers I'd say was the only drawback that I noticed. There was very little sand at best. More of a dirt consistency which in term became mud after the rain. If you have a chance to play this course, its a good one to put on the list.

Wow - you should go there and play it! It is a tough, demanding but wonderful golf course. That's a course which could have been designed by mother nature. A lot of sand, quite some water, wonderful bunkers along the water, fantastic and stunning layout. It is just a great course which can not be compared with it's sister course Caledonia (see my other review), which also is fantastic but in a very different way. You either need to have long hits/drives to make a good score or you play very tactically. It's anyway a fair course since the fairways are broad and huge. The quality of the course was awesome, just one green showed spots which they try to regrass. Everything else was just cool. Staff was great, clubhouse as well, there's nothing which would prevent me to play it again.

Tim (Chandler, AZ)

Good course with a lot of interesting holes but the greens were slow.

Jase

When I organised our 2 week trip for 16 golfers we had a free day on the 1st Saturday so I booked True Blue for 6 of us as I had heard great things and chose it over the other premium courses (Caledonia/Dunes Club). What a disappointment to find the greens were terrible. How courses can charge full price when greens are so bad is beyond me and shows complete disdain for the paying customer. The course itself was a great layout but the $149 cost with terrible greens spoiled the day.

Darren

05/06/2015

We've wanted to play this course for a few trips now. We loved the layout, but the greens really struggle thru this winter apparently. Still we could appreciated what the course potential is, but the greens were disappointing. Mother Nature beat her this winter apparently. Rest of the course was very good though, & we will play it again. After playing here we did a rebook, thru them, at Caledonia for the same day & that course was in amazing condition (I was told they have different grass on their greens which made a HUGE difference). True Blue has a practice area which was nice. Well stocked pro shop for shirts etc. Staff was very good.

Tom (Kannapolis, NC)

We were concerned, it's known as a great layout and highly regarded by all the publications, but had heard the conditioning was off earlier this Spring, overall we thought the course was really good. Manicured bunkers, fairways mowed tight,the greens had some thin spots but rolled well overall. Real gem of a layout with friendly staff.

Ed

04/26/2015

My wife and I visit MB every Spring and Fall. We heard the winter was rough here. The course is usually in excellent condition, overall it was good, not great this trip. Have played it at least a dozen times and it is one of our favorites.

Tony (Fairfax, VA)

04/21/2015

Interesting layout but very disappointed with course conditions, especially the conditions of the greens. Fuzzy, uncut, patchy, bare spots, and inconsistent. Green-side bunkers treated as waste bunkers and unkempt is a joke. Fairways patchy in places. Far over-priced for the condition. There are $35 munis in MB that are in better condition.

Joe P.

04/20/2015

Terrible shape tee to greens was told they had a bad freeze which caused the conditions to be as bad as they were. Only problem the other 4 courses we played next door were not affected. Save your money.

Jerry

03/22/2015

Have played this course many times over the years and considered it one of the top 5 on the Strand. Not this year. Was in very poor condition, from tees to fairways to greens. Certainly not worth the cost of the round. It was as poor as Caledonia was last year. Maybe they can bring it back. I hope so because it is a great layout.

Mark (New Market, ON)

True Blue is a very good, challenging course. It is more of a links style than Caledonia. I am not a links guy so I preferred Caledonia. The course at True Blue was a little beat up cause of all the rain, but overall it is an exceptional course. Lots of sand! Like Caledonia, the clubhouse is amazing and the 18th hole is something every golfer should experience.

Bruce

09/29/2014

it was raining very hard and there were only 4 groups out on the course at the time we played in the morning. Unfortuantely the first group was very very very slow and it took us 5 hours to complete the round. It was disappointing that there was no players assistant on course to move the slow group forward so we could play in an acceptable time. The course is amazing though.

Tom (Hurricane, WV)

09/19/2014

I played the course many years ago and didn't like it much however I loved the course this time. Pretty course, challenging layout. I like driving in the waste areas. Things had been wet so the ball did less rolling off the fairways into the waste areas than what I previously recalled. Also made it easier to hit out of the waste areas.

Ed (Lewisville, NC)

12/13/2013

Highly overated. Instead of ##2 or ##3 ranking, I would place it in the ##20-25 ranking for all the Grand Strand courses. No real complaints, but just doesn't live up to the hype or cost. Again, coffee at $2.25 a cup is ludicrous. Several holes are too long for Sr. golfers.

Grady (Fullerton, CA)

11/15/2013

The starter on this course was rude. He highly recommended everyone move y p a tee box however the course was too short and easy from the tee boxes he said. He was only concerned with pace of play and not our experience. He demanded all parties go to tee at same time even though person in 3rd group just bought balls and wanted to hit them.

Gail (Gibsonia, PA)

11/07/2013

This is the first time we have played the course since the redesign to be more women friendly. We LOVED it! while we always loved the beauty of the course, it is now fun to play. You just moved to ##1 in our book. Please add more women's clothing to your pro shop.

Clay (Lewis Center, OH)

11/05/2013

I was scheduled off number 1, started on 10. I want to play the golf course in the order it was designed. Pace of play was AWFUL here, not a range in site, we were behind a fore-some that were clearly novice players and were at least a hole behind, never saw a ranger once. Enjoyed the course, but do not enjoy leaning on my club waiting on every shot

A little bummed out that I was not told greens had been recently punched when I called to make reservation. After we got past that I loved the course. Great imagination, beautiful views, very unique looking par 3's. if I was told ahead of time about greens, I would have made other arrangements. Played Caladonia to make it a 36 hole day...thought that track was fantastic in every way. From condition to the people...I will be back, soon.

James (East Rockaway, NY)

07/09/2013

This is a must play course. The fair conditions I checked above were a result of the heavy rains they've had over the last week. It was cart paths only and the fairways were very wet ! Normally the conditions would be excellent. The holes are challenging but fair. Beautiful layout but a long walk if cart paths only. My wife, a high handicap also enjoyed the course> I played from the whites, I'm 71 but the 2 guys who they paired us with are big hitters and they also played from the whites. They each own a condo there and ate low handicaps and big hitters. Accuracy to the greens is the challenge. Highly recommended.

The day before I left my range finder at Caledonia. I went to the Pro Shop and asked if they would call to see if it had been turned in. They called and then went to pick it up for me and brought it out on the course for me. Excellent service from Bag drop to Pro shop! Best on the Strand!

Art (Point Pleasant Beach)

05/06/2013

Was very disappointed. Hated all the waste areas-just too much. Also almost every hole but 17 & 18 were bunkered directly in front. Too much for amateurs. Fairways were not green specked with a lot of yellow. Also thought fairways were too short

A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!! Sister course to Caledonia, but NOTHING LIKE IT! The conditions of the faiways and greens were abysmal for a course of its stature. All the bunkers were WASTE BUNKERS and in sorry condition. Looks like they have NEVER bothered to rake the traps and it was like hitting out of cement! Leaves all over the place, very UNKEPT!!

True Blue is different with the extensive waste areas which are less of a problem for the older golfers that tend to have shorter drives but more accurate ball control. The wild young studs pay the price with many waste area shots. Older knees and hips have trouble with the distance from golf car to green and back.

Bill (Saint Augustine, FL)

Great golf experience. The course guide book is an absolute must or you will be in real trouble off the tees on most holes.

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams was warming up on the range when we arriving. Great track, grill room & excellent condition. Considerable harder than it's sister course Caledonia, but great experience. Played here two years in a row, will be back for more.

Lower ratings only because of heavy rain early that morning. Top five of my favorites in Myrtle Beach. Always fun and challenging. We'll be back!

James (Riverton, NJ)

04/08/2013

A lot of blind shots, helps to have some previous knowledge of the course or gps for a resort course this round could take forever if you were unfamiliar with the layout. Greens very fast but fair.

This is an outstanding course. I did not play very well because I found all the trouble they offered at this course. This is a very unique course with all of the waste bunkers gives a great view. Really would like to place this course again when I am striking the ball a little better. I would recommend this course to any one but you need to play the right tees for your game or you get into serious trouble.

True Blue was great. If u are wondering if u want to play here, YOU SHOULD. The greens are perfect (11.5 - 12) Phil the cart guy was a great asset to the course. He was very helpful and nice. We went off at 12 and was able to play 27. Replay was $40 for 9.

H. Cook (Laconia, NH)

The attendants were excellent and very helpful. The course was very attractive and fun to play. All the sand that was treated as waste area was a little difficult to get use to.

Mark (Goodyear, AZ)

Non traditional MB course, more a like a desert course, target golf with wide fairways, trees not in play, lots of waste areas. A must play.

Greens were top-dressed without prior knowledge. Wanted to replay, but after paying $128.00 to play was not about to pay $45 more for a replay. The cost could have been why so few persons playing this course! Too many other good courses on the Strand.

Leo (Terrebonne, QC)

10/16/2012

I like the layout of the holes. The sand and water is very present and offer a nice challenge. Green are challenging but the speed is constant and make then playable. This is one of my top 2 courses in Myrtle Beach and I have played it the last 3 of my 8 trips in the area.

Kevin (Fairport, NY)

10/12/2012

I thought it one of the nicest courses I've played on great fairways, tees and greens. Should have bought the yardage book it would've helped. Staff was great can't wait to play it again.

The fairways were in great condition and the on-course staff were great. The greens had been plugged within the last 2 weeks so they were not in great condition. Would recommend this course to low handicappers. Might be tough for the higher handicappers.

Gary (California, MO)

Drew (Wyckoff, NJ)

06/10/2012

Due to wet weather recently, the course was cart path only. Due to the width of the fairways and the inability to see the ball from the cart path due to undulations, much walking was required, and sometimes the 2-3 clubs I brought to the ball were not the correct ones. On one par five, I estimated I walked over 800 yards.

Lou (Saint Helena Island, SC)

05/07/2012

This could be a nice course but the sand traps, of which there are many, are in dreadful condition. In fact, they are among the worst I've ever played. For this reason, I would not go back. On this course, you are going to be in the sand. To play out of mud and dirt is no fun and that is all the traps are. I hated the experience. I would not pay one cent to play there again.

John (West Chester, PA)

05/04/2012

For the price paid, it was disappointing. Not enough information given as to distances to hazards or to clear hazards or waste bunker areas. Carts had one bottle of divot mix and ours was empty when we started. Seems to have gone downhill since we played it last.

Bob (Cary, NC)

05/03/2012

Found the same situation on fairways and greens as at other courses. We guessed they were still trying to recover from the winter. The greens were also in very poor condition as opposed to the times we played before. When finished playing we were really pushed by the cart team to get off the carts. This was very annoying. We felt that your people were totally different when we finished than when we were ready to start.

Dean (Ponca City, Okla.)

04/18/2012

Our tee time was at 12:30 p.m., but they wouldn't let anyone hit balls on the practice range until about 11:45 a.m. They should prepare those practice areas the night before, especially for those who are teeing off early in the morning. Heard several people complain about this.

Ryan

03/29/2012

Unreal ... could play every day and not hit the same shot twice. Best on the beach and truly unique. I ran out of room in my camera by hole 10.

Randy

01/20/2012

Way overpriced for the value; if you like hitting out of someone's footprint from a greenside bunker then go there. They stopped maintaining their sand traps and I will never return. Better places to play for the money.

Thankfully we played this as the second course of the trip/day last week after 18 at Caledonia in the morning, because it is a very tough golf course. It was fun to play, but we all agreed it was second to Caledonia in terms of condition and golfing experience. It's a great way to spend a day playing 36 though, with the awesome replay rate as sister course to Caledonia.

William (Bridgewater, N.J.)

12/02/2011

True Blue is a pure pleasure to play. Of all the high-end Myrtle Beach courses this was the one that is a good classic course with options. I HIGHLY recommend it. Superior shape in every way. I was really impressed with this course.

I'm a golfer who likes to play and experience different courses but OMG ... True Blue is one of the most beautiful and fun courses I have ever played and re-played and will definitely play again. Every hole is as nice as the next. The fairways are wide and the entire course is fair for the average golfer. My only recommendation would be that you should not play this course as your first round ... because you'll be disappointed with the other courses in your package that just can't measure up to True Blue.

Dave G.

11/05/2011

This course is a monster from even the Blue tees, let alone the Black. The fairways are larger than any I have ever played, which takes a couple holes to get used to. Greens were the best we played all week. A must-play if your visiting Myrtle.

Considering the fact that it was cart paths only due to the weather the course was in great shape and one that we will continue to play every year down there.

Mike

09/28/2011

True Blue is one of our group's favorite courses. Unfortunately we never seem to have a good interaction with the attendants/starters. The bag guys were rude when we asked them for a couple things (proxy signs) and showed no interest at all in actually being of help to our group. Then our group was told on hole 16 tee to pick up the pace even though we were at 3:50 to that point having to play cart path only the entire round because the course was soaked. The course itself gets an A+ as usual, but the True Blue staff gets a D (again).

Jay

09/26/2011

My favorite new course of our trip. Course is in pristine shape, and the staff we encountered (pro shop, grill, rangers) were all great. A must play going forward.

Wide fairways and large greens were a nice contrast to the length of the course. The cart paths in the sand bordering nearly every hole was a unique feature and made the course a little more playable in the event of an errant ball.

Robert (Richmond, Va.)

08/24/2011

A unique experience, even with the greens having recently been aerated, they rolled very true.

Phillip (Newark, Ohio)

08/17/2011

True Blue is actually my favorite course and it certainly didn't disappoint! We played Caledonia for our afternoon round and no one in our party was impressed (Nice course, but I wouldn't return. The staff was less than friendly).

Joseph (Ebensburg, Penn.)

08/17/2011

Excellent

Tim (Union, Ky.)

08/02/2011

As usual, the course was in excellent shape. The greens rolled true but a little slower than normal. Staff was friendly. I played early in the morning so there were quite a few grounds crew out and they were always very considerate about stopping what they were doing when I was about to hit. I will definitely play here again. It is a must-play in Myrtle Beach.

Richard (South Park, Penn.)

06/24/2011

True Blue is like playing on your living room carpet, almost afraid to take a divot. #10 is favorite hole with its wide openness. I agree it is one of the best in MB.

Joe

06/18/2011

Played it 6/11 and the course was in EXCELLENT shape, sorry Kenneth. The greens were actually faster than Caledonia's this time around.

Peter (Lorton, Va.)

Long, hard fairway bunkers/cart paths were NOT enjoyable aspects of the course. In fact, all wet, hard bunkers after a week without rain were very disappointing.

Jerott (Cedar Hills, Utah)

05/10/2011

Eat a big breakfast because this course is tough. Tough and a blast! Course conditions were impeccable, and the layout is fantastic. Every club in your bag, as well as your skill, will be tested. A couple of par 5's are reachable, and the par 3's are visually stunning. I cannot wait to play this one again!

Paul (Palos Park, Ill.)

05/03/2011

GPS would have been nice.

Charles (San Diego, Calif.)

Lots of really interesting holes that reward well-struck tee shots. Liked the risk/reward aspects of tee shots and the overall playability of the course.

Tom (Farmington, N.Y.)

04/20/2011

There was nothing I liked about True Blue. I believe it is overpriced for the quality of the fairways and greens. Plus for the average golfer a few of the holes that have large sand bunkers completely surrounding very small greens are not fair. It made for a difficult day of golf, I won't play this course again.

Gavin (Scarborough, Ontario)

04/19/2011

Poor experience. No GPS, no signs showing showing individual holes. Large variation in sand traps, many with little or no sand. Many unraked.

Bill (Massillon, Ohio)

03/28/2011

Great course for some of us. Since there is little rough, if we didn't the fairway, we were in the waste bunkers. Too many waste bunkers made a long day for some of our golfers.

Very challenging course. Expected better greens; lots of top dressing.

Bill (Indianapolis, Ind.)

03/21/2011

Fantastic course - I highly recommend. Lots of room off the tees. Gets tough from there but the course is playable, you won't lose many balls, but is very challenging.

Richard (Chatham, N.J.)

03/18/2011

Course was excellent and very hard.

Louis & Pat (Brookfield, Conn.)

03/11/2011

Great.

Jeremy (Gilbertsville, Penn.)

03/01/2011

Toughest course of our week, but excellent setup and conditioning. Service was very good.

Jim (Pooler, Ga.)

11/25/2010

Tiered greens present a challenge.

Deborah (Virginia Beach, Va.)

11/20/2010

Course was cart path only due to overseeding and watering for the same. It would have been beneficial to have had cart GPS, and for the price of the green fees should have been a standard. Greens run very true.

Frank (Berlin, Conn.)

11/16/2010

Suggestion for next year: Not a good idea to put American flags on all the pins. The flag poles are on the ground when everyone is putting.

Jim

(Liked) everything.

Robert & Barb (Summerville, S.C.)

11/13/2010

Stunning course, loved the fairways, like walking on a carpet.

Jose (Darien, Ill.)

11/10/2010

Yardage markers could be better. GPS in the carts would be great.

Mike (Chicago, Ill.)

10/29/2010

Course was in fantastic shape, especially the greens. Played about 24 courses in MB over the years, this one is still my favorite.

Colette (Plainfield, Ill.)

10/27/2010

Too hard getting in and out of sand traps for people with bad knees.

Robert (Fitchburg, Mass.)

10/27/2010

This is a great golf course.

Marlene (Zionsville, Penn.)

10/19/2010

Another course that we play every year. Just love it!

Kevin (Marietta, Ga.)

10/18/2010

Play whenever I am in the area. Straightforward layout and challenging. Excellent greens and staff.

Walter (Savannah, Ga.)

10/18/2010

Greens not as smooth as expected. Overall experience was good and will return in the future.

Howard (Estero, Fla.)

10/15/2010

Good condition as always. No complaints.

Owen (Buffalo, N.Y.)

10/15/2010

We played the day following the big rain and the course was in very good condition, considering the wet conditions.

Rich (Toms River, N.J.)

10/09/2010

True Blue is a great track, but is staring to overcharge during these tough money times. Other MB courses see this trend and are offering free breakfast and even lunch with the payment of greens fees to survive. True Blue may want to take this approach to keep the steady flow of golfers because $129 a round is more then twice as much as some VERY good course are charging!!

John (Pittsburgh, Penn.)

10/07/2010

The course team did an amazing job making the course playable after 17 inches of rain in 3 days. Salvaged a rewarding golf day from a very questionable outlook.

Bob (Weymouth, Mass.)

09/22/2010

Great course and it was in very good shape.

Steve (Mechanicsburg, Penn.)

09/14/2010

Always great.

Trevor (Raleigh, N.C.)

09/08/2010

Course layout was great but the greens were a bit sandy and seemed like they had been punched recently. This was frustrating because I called both the course and MBN.com when booking to make sure they would not be punching. It was obvious they did and we were not told before playing. Felt like we should have been at least alerted given the high price of this course.

Larry & Kathy (Verdi, Nev.)

08/31/2010

Fair condition at best.

Carol

Philip (Newark, Ohio)

Excellent

Nicholas (Lynbrook, N.Y.)

08/06/2010

Everything was wonderful except that the bunkers and waste areas had been severely affected by a recent storm. But a pleasure to play and a true challenge!

Rocco (Westbury, N.Y.)

07/15/2010

Loved the 18th, with everyone watching. Very memorable.

Mario (Toronto, Ontario)

06/16/2010

First time, but definitely not my last!!

Mike (Greer, S.C.)

06/13/2010

Another excellent course. I find it tougher than Caledonia - all that sand!!

Dave (Texas)

06/08/2010

Unique style of course with the waste bunkers. Very playable and a good test. The greenskeeping staff got in our way quite a bit on the front nine (I guess they were getting off for the day and did not want to wait for us to play). They interrupted tee shots and plays from the waste bunkers as well. Pro shop was excellent and the staff there was outstanding. Food and atmosphere were also above average.

Rob (New Westminster, British Columbia)

06/02/2010

The course is beautifully laid out, creative and in great shape. Staff were helpful when available. Practice facility ran out of balls and staff were not on top of it. 2nd visit and will be back.

Brett (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.)

05/31/2010

Stronger layout and overall better than Caledonia.

Michael (St. Louis, Mo.)

05/25/2010

Enjoyed the well manincured and quick greens.

Kenneth (Toronto, Ontario)

05/19/2010

A fine golf course in good condition.

James (Christiansburg, Va.)

05/18/2010

Rushed by starter, all three groups. Told by starter to start hitting balls into our own group as they had been warned to speed up.

Vic (Barrington, Ill.)

05/18/2010

Have played here before, enjoy the course.

Bill (Bluffton, S.C.)

05/18/2010

Another fantastic course; good to know layout because of all the waste bunkers; course in great shape.

Ron (Cedar Lake, Ind.)

05/12/2010

Malcolm (Heathfield, East Sussex, UK)

05/10/2010

Jack (Lake Forest, Ill.)

05/03/2010

Almost as good as Caledonia.

Stephen (Estero, Fla.)

05/01/2010

No carts in fairways not a good experience. The sand traps were not maintained properly.

Herbert (St. James, N.Y.)

04/30/2010

One of my favorite courses in the Myrtle Beach area.

James (Nepean, Ontario)

04/29/2010

Challenging course; you have to bring your A game for sure!

Phil (Boca Raton, Fla.)

04/29/2010

Difficult course. Many blind holes and many holes where it was difficult to determine distance to hazards. GPS in carts would be helpful or at least aiming stakes in the fairway.

Arlene (Los Angeles, Calif.)

04/29/2010

First time playing this course. Very interesting course layout. Nice, and will play here again.

Dave (Cincinnati, Ohio)

04/28/2010

I have brought a group of 12 - 16 to Myrtle Beach for the last 10 years and we have played True Blue several times. Although it is certainly one of the more difficult courses we play it is one of our favorites.

John (Toms River, N.J.)

04/24/2010

I feel about True Blue much the same as Caledonia. Some of its beauty is lessened by the proximity of the housing. The course is challenging but fair and it is a pleasure to play it.

Patrick (Ashburn, Va.)

04/23/2010

Great course, great people ... we'll be back for sure.

Jack (Braintree, Mass.)

04/18/2010

We thought it was more like Caledonia. It was a little too tough for a couple in my group. That said, everything was great; staff and course were great. Not too much to play with on the greens for higher handicap players.

Payton34ever (Pawleys Island, S.C.)

04/16/2010

Along with Caledonia, True Blue is without question the finest golf course and facility on the Grand Strand. Bottom line, it doesn't get any better than this.

Jim

04/15/2010

Second only to Caledonia.

John (North Huntingdon, Penn.)

04/13/2010

Again excellent! Makes our list every year. Great pro shop and clubhouse staff. Course in great shape.

Hank (Bristol, Conn.)

03/31/2010

Too challenging for some of the guys ... too many waste areas ...

Paul (Charlotte, N.C.)

03/30/2010

Outstanding course. Great condition. Moved into my Top 10-15 list. Obviously, semi-private and not sure how much they want/like outside play. At $150 per round it is almost over priced however.

Roy & Deb (Appleton, Wis.)

03/30/2010

S. Kent (Tappahannock, Va.)

Chuck (Catasauqua, Penn.)

03/18/2010

Challenging course, Fairly placed hazards. The sand traps were not kept well. I would suggest the sister course Caledonia over True Blue. Great clubhouse! Great time to have a drink after the round and watch the action to the 18th green.

Cody (Baltimore, Md.)

03/15/2010

one of the best courses i have ever played

Paul (St. Paul, Minn.)

03/03/2010

Robert (Chambersburg, Penn.)

Michael (East Wareham, Mass.)

01/22/2010

The course took a good bit of rain the night before, but it still played just fine. The greens has good speed and the course was in overall good shape.

Roger (Magog, Quebec)

01/21/2010

Unfortunately we were only a twosome; still the play took 5.5 hrs; we were behind two very very slow threesomes. the course beautiful but the play so slow..it was a miserable day. The attitude in the pro show was bad...they paid and like everyone else they deserve to play. This is crap...they desired to play within an alloted time and if they couldn't keep up the pace they should have been made to pick up. Unfortunately we will not return to True Blue simply because of this laissez faire attitude.

Jeff

01/21/2010

Best course.

Frank (Clinton Twp., Mich.)

01/06/2010

Played True Blue a while ago, this time I had more fun because I knew I had to hit fairways to score. The best course that I played on my stay.

Jean-Paul (Valleyfield, Quebec)

12/26/2009

I like the design.

Jean Manuel (St. Eustache, Quebec)

12/24/2009

Beautiful layout (one of the best in the area), but fairways were still wet and had to use cart pat only even if it did not rain for 4 or 5 days, pretty long day because of that. Bunkers and waste area were in bad shape, but WOW for the layout.

Murray (Chester, Va.)

12/15/2009

Best fairways.

Robert (Telford, Penn.)

12/03/2009

Great course. A new favorite. Love the waste bunkers. Would loved to have stayed for an afternoon replay, but thought the replay rate was too expensive. Went to Heritage Club that afternoon and played for much less than your replay rate.

John

11/25/2009

Christopher (Hillsborough, N.J.)

10/29/2009

The course was in near perfect shape. The holes with water were the toughest but we enjoyed them the most.

Ray

10/28/2009

Great.

Ronald (New York, N.Y.)

10/26/2009

Really wide fairways. Great layout. One negative, because carts in the waste areas only, and your eye level was below the fairways, it felt like you really couldn't see the course. Would have been a much better experience walking on the fairways.

Eric (Oceanside, N.Y.)

10/22/2009

Perfect. Cannot be improved upon.

Bob (Windham, N.H.)

Vincent (Greensburg, Penn.)

Great layout, good condition. Greens a little slow compared to what I'm used too, but very nice.

Nathan (Clemmons, N.C.)

08/22/2009

Loved the course, one of the best in the Strand area. Typical Mike Strantz design but toned down a bit ... huge fairways and greens, superior condition ... a must-play. Plays long off the tips but very manageable as most of the yardage is in the par 5s and not the par 3s, which is nice. The service in the grill/clubhouse is brutal, though ... ladies were rude ... Pro shop should give you a course book for free but they don't, especially on a Strantz course.

Todd (Cary, N.C.)

08/14/2009

Course in great shape.

Steve (Mission, Tex.)

07/23/2009

I had not played True Blue in nearly nine years and had almost forgotten what a tremendous golf experience it is. In fact, with some improvements that have made the course not so much easier but certainly more fair, I would have to say the when I played in on July 15, 2009, it was an even better experience than I remembered. The course was in impeccable shape from tee to green on every hole, and the staff -- well, they could not have been more of a pleasure to deal with. No one should come to America's golf Mecca and go home without playing True Blue. It certainly lives up to its billing as one of the top courses in the nation.

Jerry (Ann Arbor, Mich.)

07/14/2009

True Blues layout overall is unique. Using the sand traps as cart paths is a great change of pace. #18 is one of the best closing holes of any golf course. This is the the 8th or 9th time I have played True Blue and as I have come to expect the course was in great shape. The staff was very pleasant and made our experience very enjoyable.,True Blues layout overall is unique.

Most over-valued course in MB, the practice facilities, greens, tees, cart paths, course information and overall course maintenance were extremely poor, by far the worst of the 7 courses we played this week. The price should be $70, not $170. Further, a number of holes are blind tee shots, no course information was provided on the tees or in the form of a players handbook, which should be included for that price. Do not waste your money here, play the TPC instead, better course and experience.
