Caledonia Golf & Fish Club
Caledonia Golf and Fish Club, located in Pawleys Island just off U.S. 17, was built upon a former Lowcountry rice plantation that inhabited the southern portion of the Grand Strand.
Caledonia recently received an overall ranking of 8.7 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, with even higher marks for its pristine fairways. Caledonia is nothing short of one of one of the best courses in all of the Carolinas, evidenced by it repeated recognition from several national publications. It has been named one of the “Top 100 You Can Play” by Golf Magazine and one of “America’s Top 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest, as well as earning honors from Golfweek as one of “America’s 100 Best Modern Courses.” The Mike Strantz design opened in 1994, and since then, it has continued to distinguish itself to players and golf professionals alike.
The creativity in the design transfers to the creativity necessary to play these 18 holes. Measuring at a less-than-intimidating 6,526 yards from the “Pintail” championship tees, Strantz put to work man-made elevation difference, natural grasses, oak trees, a winding canal and various other hazards to more than make up for the lack of sheer distance. The par-70 course has five par 3s and only three par 5s; however, one of its claims to fame is the ability to boast 18 signature holes. The par-3 No. 11, though, is something unlike any other. A slightly elevated tee box overlooks a winding creek and narrow approach to the green. Vast tree and plant life line both sides of the entire hole, which can play a club length or two longer depending on pin location. The 383-yard par-4 No. 18 then brings you home to an Antebellum-style clubhouse that would look its part in any number of movies set in the early 1800s. It pays homage to the course’s heritage.

A little wet because of all of the rain, but this course never disappoints. Love the views and the layout, nice staff too

Excellent as always, one of the best places to play
KevinDate Played: 08/15/2020
A little disappointed in overall conditions. Bunkers were in terrible shape. Rough was also a little inconsistent. Tee boxes were a mess as well. Fairways and greens were good.
ScottDate Played: 08/14/2020
Not as good as the last time. They sent us to their sister course for the driving range. We get there to be told the driving range was closed.

Best golf course at the beach, bar none. Beautiful and challenging.
TimDate Played: 08/22/2019
Had heard a lot of good thing about this course. Didn’t meet expectations. How can one of the best courses in Myrtle Beach not have a driving range?? The greens were slow. Online it says tour conditions. Not!! The drive to the clubhouse and the layout of most all of the holes was georgeious. Had rained so no carts on the course made the gps useless.

A must play when you are in Myrtle Beach. After your round sit down in front porch over looking the 18th hole and enjoy a beverage of your choice.

As always, excellent service by friendly staff and delicious soups and sandwiches today .. All enjoyed on one of the prettiest porches on the Grand Strand.. Lots of fun watching golfers shots over the water to number 18 green .. Flowers were simply beautiful today .. Love to play Caledonia and always a treat to have lunch on the porch

Hands down the best at MB. I've played all the top courses here and I like this one the best. The only drawback is the absence of a driving range.

I actually thought Caledonia would be nore difficult, the course was pretty open and forgiving. I highly recommend playing a replay round at True Blue the sister course across the street.

Just the beast course on the Strand. I like True Blue and the Dunes but Caledonia is a cut above them both.

Top notch great conditions and visually stunning course. Played from the proper tees it is our groups favorite Myrtle Beach course.
FastDate Played: 03/13/2016
Great condition, greens in great shape but slow in afternoon and pace of play was great but overall it's just not worth the $$$$$ price. With no driving range and a small chipping, putting area for that price thumbs down and there's so many courses in area that offer the same if not more and it's just a money grab in prime season.
TomDate Played: 10/07/2015
Beautiful Course, Best course in Myrtle Beach area.

The Best in MB by far! Conditions outstanding and staff knows how to make you feel at Home.

BrianDate Played: 08/23/2015
JoeDate Played: 07/28/2015
This is the best course in Myrtle Beach. Not sure why TPC is a 5 star course compared to this. Every hole has a unique character to it and I could play here everyday.
MarkusDate Played: 06/11/2015
What a beauty! That course is a must to play. It was very well maintained, greens were great, fairways fantastic and the layout is just gorgeous. There's so many holes which are just stunning. It's a fair course but you need to be accurate, partially it's quite narrow. That place can be compared with a wonderfully designed park landscape. Staff was very friendly and helpful, replay is available. The approach shot on hole 18 is something special since the green is in front of the clubhouse patio and typically there's a number of spectators either cheering or booing (in a nice way :-) ). Restaurant food was great, staff very friendly.
RaymondDate Played: 06/10/2015
Well worth the drive from our accommodations in Myrtle Beach, a spectacular plantation style course with stunningly beautiful course architecture. The flora and fauna rival botanical gardens.
TimDate Played: 05/29/2015
Wonderful course with many interesting holes.
DarrenDate Played: 05/06/2015
This course is a joy to play. We decided to play it from the Tips & it was very playable for 5 handicappers from there (6,83 from the Tips). Conditions were close to perfect throughout. Greens ran at a good speed, only TPC's were quicker on this trip. It was our 2nd round of the day, as we played it's sister course True Blue in the morning. Fair deal on a Play it Again Deal. If you haven't played Caledonia before, treat yourself !!! There is no Practice Range at this course.
MichaelDate Played: 04/21/2015
The course was in excellent condition and the greens were some of the best I've played on. A great plantation course with a lot of charm.
JamesDate Played: 03/24/2015
Beautiful course but greens fee pricing is getting way too high. Will probably be the last time I play it.

Have played course before..always like golfing there. And hitting into 18 is always challenging.

Could not have asked for a more perfect day of golf. It is a favorite of our group.

Still just a great and challenging course. We love the 18th approach with the club house balcony overlooking it so we can cheer or boo our fellow golfers while enjoying and few drinks in the rocking chairs! Happy 20th Anniversary!!

Always in great shape and they make you feel so welcome. Great staff.
DerekDate Played: 10/31/2014
Great course. Weather was perfect, and conditions were very good. We played 5 courses around Pawleys/Murrells Inlet, and I would rank this as the best one; although I wouldn't sing the praises as loudly as some other reviewers. While the layout was great, I think Tobacco Road's may be a little better (also a Mike Stranz design), and at $164 pp the marginal benefit/marginal cost ratio wasn't that high. I think the best course we played when you take into account cost was Pawleys Plantation. Also a great layout (particularly some of the holes on the back 9) and great conditioning. If you don't want to spend $160+ to play Caledonia, take a look at PP.

The nicest course that I think I have ever played, from the moment we drove up the lane way it was rich and inviting. The staff of the pro shop was inviting and engaging. As well the rest of the staff from the starter to the marshalls and the cart girl, all were helpful and great to work with. Cheers.

Should have had a yardage book but otherwise loved the course.
ScottDate Played: 10/28/2014
The course is beautiful and pristine, the only let down is # 9 especially if it's your last hole. I found myself on every hole standing on the tee and admiring the layout and beauty. It's the nicest course in Myrtle Beach and we all said we would play there every day.

This course is the king of Myrtle Beach by far, however it is way overpriced. You can spend hours sitting on the porch overlooking 18 and watching golfers but their balls in the pond in front of the green. If the prices ever went down you could dusted off plug it in and run it around the clock. I guess they are satisfied with the modified number of rounds.

Outstanding golf course in all aspects. Love the chowder.
ScottDate Played: 10/10/2014
Haven't played Caledonia since last year but this is just a spectacular golf course. Don't be fooled by the overall yardage on the score card. This has some very short par 3's and some very, very long par 4's from the whites. When the course is wet and soft, it plays very difficult for a par 70. The beauty of this course cannot be matched and the condition has always been perfect when I've played there. Green fees are a little tough for locals to play very often but very, very enjoyable when we do play.
AndyDate Played: 10/08/2014
Absolutely outstanding golf course. Everything about the Caledonia experience is fantastic. Played it every trip we have had to MB (4 times over from Scotland) and it just gets better. Great staff, great service and the course is a must play. Nice little eagle at 8th hole made it an even better day. Finishing hole is just superb.

Caledonia is an outstanding course and should be on everyone's list of must play courses. From the natural beauty, tremendous layout, playability, and friendly staff, this is the best of the 40+ courses I've played in the Myrtle Beach area.
MikeDate Played: 10/03/2014
Unfortunately it rained on us the entire round so it took some of the luster off of such a fantastic golf course. Despite that though everyone in our group still raved about the fantastic layout and overall eye appeal of the golf course. Just a fantastic golf course all the way around.
GaryDate Played: 10/03/2014
What's not to like about the best course in Myrtle Beach.
MarkDate Played: 10/03/2014
Caledonia is probably the nicest golf course I have ever played. The attention to detail in virtually every aspect of the course is amazing. It is a little disappointing that you have to go over to True Blue to use the driving range, but it is only a couple minutes so not that big of a deal. It has a great short-game practice facility however. What really made the course special for me was the landscaping, the gardens, the old trees and spanish moss and the course layout. Coming up 18 is truly special with all the gents on the deck watching you come up. Will definitely be recommending it to others folks in Toronto.
TomDate Played: 10/03/2014
Fairways were way too long and soggy due to the rain and lack of cutting.
NormanDate Played: 09/30/2014
Very wet but got round in. Course employee actually had nerve to ask us if we should be playing white tees because we were more than a hole behind - nobody behind us for 2 holes. Cart path only takes more time to play, all of us in my group were 9 handicappers or better.
GeorgeDate Played: 09/29/2014
As always Caledonia is the best.

The staff in the grill told us it would only be a few minutes to get our order because we told them we had a tee time at True Blue. 20 minutes later we got our food and had to race to our next tee time.
SamDate Played: 06/02/2014
Great track and in good condition but finishing on #9 is so disappointing. A course that charges that kind of money should only be played 1-18, especially when #18 is so great. Will only play if starting from the first tee.
RobertDate Played: 06/02/2014
We love this course. It also memorializes our annual trip because we get our picture taken here. It is also the site of my hole in one... so I remain hopeful. The chowder is a nice treat, too

Top notch all around. Caledonia is a must play for any golfer in the area. Beautiful course and a great round of golf for everyone in the group. Never disappoints
EdDate Played: 12/13/2013
This is one of the two best golf courses that I have ever played during my 50 years of playing golf and I'm now only 154 rounds short of 10,000 rounds. I do have one complaint. Being 68 yrs. old and choosing to play the Sr. tees because my drives usually travel 185 yds. air time(max. 200 yds. occasionally), I could not reach 5-6 holes in regulation. And the wet conditions didn't help my total yardage. No ranger on the course as the other cart in my group drove down every fairway while following the cart path only rules I was totally fatigued after the round. I shot 82 and made not one putt over 6 feet, so I was happy with my score considering the conditions. Really upset at the price of a cup of coffee - $2.25 is ludicrous. Every avid golfer that visits M.B. should play this course at least one time. The visual appeal even outweighs the high quality of the golf course. This is Mike Strantz best course design.

Awesome, interesting golf course, will play this one again-one tip, the cart attendant should just start cleaning the clubs, not ASK if I want them cleaned. I will ALWAYS tip a guy for that service, but this guy talked himself right out of a tip by asking me-no range was a big negative, offer a shuttle service to True Blue..and how many starters need to ask me the name of my group...I was asked 5 times, really?
BobDate Played: 10/25/2013
Enjoyed the layout of the course & the condition
ChrisDate Played: 10/22/2013
Can't go wrong with Caledonia. Played it 3 times now, most recently October 2012. It is certainly one of the most beautiful courses around. But i am not as high on it as most are and i will admit that is mostly due to the short nature of the course. I hit a long ball and prefer hitting the driver off par 4 & 5 tees. Even from the back tees at Caledonia that is tough. Another negative for me is no driving range. And of course the goofy par 3 9th. But the beauty, hole #18, the clubhouse and specifically the rocking chairs on the porch overlooking 18 definitly make this a must-play course, but just outside my personal top 5 (Dunes, Tidewater, True Blue, Tigers Eye, Barefoot).
MikeDate Played: 10/22/2013
I was very disappointed with the attitude of the rangers on the golf course. They were very rude to members of our group when we did not purchase a plaque that they took our picture for (a few members of the group did purchse the plaque). He thought that all 40 people should have bought the plaque, guess it didn't matter that we spent 4,000 there that day. He also told a group in front of us, that they should give up golf and play piddley winks if they couldn't play the course in 4 hours. I understand it is a rangers job to keep the group moving, but there is also a way to do this in a customer service oriented manner. It is a shame, Caledonia was definately one of the nicer courses we played, but due to the poor customer service we received, I doubt I will ever go back there. I'm also recommending most of my golf buddies who take trips to avoid this course as well.

Course was very nice, but not worth the price. Starters were incompetent and had trouble directing golfers to the right place. Rangers were rude and obnoxious. Play was very slow to too much cart path only. NO other course we played had this restriction.
GaryDate Played: 10/18/2013
Likely the best course in the area. It was a treat to play but the 9th hole is a bit weak and not a good finishing hole when you start play on the 10th tee.
RalphDate Played: 10/18/2013
Really felt that the staff cared about our experience at Caledonia, they were very friendly and courteous. The golf course was well maintained with many challenges regardless which tee boxes were being used.
DaveDate Played: 10/18/2013
Starter was rude, condescending, and had little patience with our group which is called the Hackers. This gentleman should be working in the cart barn washing carts and kept far away from customer contact respon-sibilities. Whether he realizes or not there are other golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area that can be selected. I will not recommend this course to friends and our group will never come back. Nice course, but expensive and with staff like the starter/ranger we had, it is unlikely you will continue your very favorable rating as an elite golf course on the grand strand.
BruceDate Played: 10/18/2013
The rangers out on the course, an older man, told us to speed up play. He also told us that if we couldn't play the course in 4 1/2 hours, we should pick something else to do. I have never been treated so rude. I will never play, nor recommend, Caledonia, again.

The all around appearance of the course is what makes it special. And the fact that a tropical storm had just passed through and caused no course issues shows the strength of your maintance group.

Best place to play on the south beach though alot of the bunkers were washed out and not recently manicured due to recent rains
RayDate Played: 05/06/2013
Sand traps were in terrible shape. They had heavy rains prior to us playing, but some of the damage appeared to be there previously. Other than that, always a great course to play.
DarrenDate Played: 05/03/2013
Been on my Bucket List for years. Been to Myrtle 8-10 times now, & finally played it today. Even in very windy conditions it was a real treat. This course is simply AMAZING!!!! By far the BEST greens I've played in Myrtle ever, & probably the BEST course I ever played. Fairways, rough, tees & staff were all exemplary !!! We will definitely be back :)
WallaceDate Played: 05/01/2013
This is the premiere course we play on a four day golf trip Each year. Traps are pitiful. It's bad enough To just be in one, but the lack of upkeep does not fit your rating. Which you Would have senior tees. I know the course is tight. Combine the blue and white tees. We seniors should be upfront for many reasons and do Not get a fair shake when competing with younger guys. Some day you will have this issue. Make the change.
IraDate Played: 04/29/2013
A Sunday at Myrtle Beach would not be the same without playing the CREAM OF THE CROP Caledonia. THIS IS our favorite course of all. GREAT HOLES, GREAT LAYOUT, FUN TO PLAY, CHALLENGING YET SCORABLE, and the landscaping is beautiful!! Finish it off with the 18th hole and what a day!!! Also you MUST have LUNCH there and go for the LOBSTER BISQUE SOUP - sit out on the porch and watch as everyone tries to hit over the water and par 18....
PhilDate Played: 04/29/2013
OVERALL.........VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE FROM THE STAFF TO THE COURSE CONDITI0N.

We have played Caledonia since it first opened. As always the course was in excellent condition. This is our favorite course in Myrtle Beach without question.
JimmyDate Played: 04/17/2013
Favorite course on the Grand Strand. Excellent condition. Greens in perfect shape.
HerbDate Played: 04/16/2013
Beautiful facility, great conditions, friendly staff & great grill room. Liked the 18th green right in front of clubhouse. Thought the greens were a bit slow. Overall very playable course, really enjoyed the experience.
KurtDate Played: 04/10/2013
Most beautiful course in MB area. I don't like the charity request every time you play the 3rd hole. it is distracting to the round. Ask for the donation when you check in at pro shop.
EdmundDate Played: 04/01/2013
Love the Chouder at the turn
JamesDate Played: 03/27/2013
Still the best course in the Myrtle Beach area! Have played it every year for the 14 and it never disappoints!
GregDate Played: 03/25/2013
Sand when wet is very heavy and to penetrate. course well marked and played well
LawrenceDate Played: 03/25/2013
Very nice layout but course was not in great condition. Also a little short taking driver out of hand on too many holes. Staff rushed us to tee off 30 minutes early so we didn't have a chance to warm up. Not very good practice facility Was very poor value for price paid. Heritage, Tradition and River Clubs in much better condition.
ErnieDate Played: 03/25/2013
Unable to take carts to our auto in the parking lot was a negative

This is one of the best golf courses you will play. Great conditions, great lay out, and great hospitality.
CarterDate Played: 03/18/2013
Excellent. Greens rolling very true! Beautiful course!
GaryDate Played: 03/18/2013
Favorite course in MB. Conditions excellent, people very professional.
MarkDate Played: 03/14/2013
Very challenging and interesting course. One hole was not up to the standards of the other 17. It is a par 4, dogleg left, slightly downhill with a large tree at the dogleg. The narrow green is elevated, surrounded by a very deep horseshoe-shaped bunker. The hole is difficult, which is fine, but it is a hokey design that slows play as golfers criss-cross the green with their bunker shots.
TomDate Played: 03/13/2013
Great layout. No two holes the same. Had to use all clubs. Greens a bit bumpy-but it's March! The seafood chowder at the first tee was a winner on a cool day!
MarkDate Played: 02/25/2013
Course plays as advertised. The drive into the course sets the tone for the day amazing. This layout is amazing especially the 18th..Will put this on the list to play next year.
DavidDate Played: 01/30/2013

The BEST that money can buy along the Grand Strand.

I have been playing in Myrtle for 30 years and always avoided because of pricing, forget about the price a must play one of the best in the country bar none thank you.
JimDate Played: 12/08/2012
Always one of our favorites.
DaveDate Played: 12/08/2012
Really enjoyed playing this course.
BradDate Played: 12/05/2012
Probably my favorite course in Myrtle Beach.
KennethDate Played: 12/04/2012
The BEST GREENS I have ever rolled a ball on. If the course had a driving range and a friendlier starter I would say it is hard to beat. We felt rushed because the starter kept pushing us to tee off 45 minutes before our tee time even though we weren't ready.
EddieDate Played: 11/30/2012
This course is outstanding. This is a very playable course for low to high handicappers because of the wide open fairways. The fairways, greens, and tees were in perfect shape. The course is total eye candy from the time you make the drive up the entrance. I would recommend this course to anyone and feel confident they will enjoy their round.
RichardDate Played: 11/17/2012
Great course in great condition.
CarlDate Played: 11/15/2012
My favorite course of the week. Every hole seemed like a Kodak moment. Starter and marshalls were friendly. Liked all the holes but 18 is definitely a great finishing hole. Caledonia is on my must play list every time I come to Myrtle Beach.
DennisDate Played: 11/14/2012
Very playable course that will not beat up most golfers. Well maintained. Good warm up course at the start of your trip or a way to finish the trip with confidence in your game. Can be a really relaxing round of golf.
BobDate Played: 11/11/2012
18 is a great finishing hole. This has been our favorite course for 10 years.

Overall setting is spectacular!
H.Date Played: 10/23/2012
This course has been on my bucket list for years and being able to finally get there and play was a real treat. The course lived up to its reputation. I have played Harbor Town several times and I think Caledonia is equal to it, if not better. The 18th hole is a priceless treasure. Sitting there on the porch, enjoying a libation and watching other players hit over the water was just a perfect way to end our trip.
MarkDate Played: 10/22/2012
Aesthetically the most beautiful course in Myrtle. Course design requires using all clubs in bag. Not long so would recommend longer hitters play back. Overpriced given nearby Heritage and True Blue are equivalent courses from a pure golf perspective. Michelle in the Grill provided excellent service as well as being very attractive.
MichaelDate Played: 10/21/2012
Caledonia is a course which has been in our sights since the last time we visited, and we greatly enjoyed the golf experience, especially the last hole. Upon arrival at the clubhouse, we had a very entertaining opportunity to sit on the veranda overlooking the 18th, and to share friendly conversation with those who were there as well as we watched the various foursomes complete their rounds. Overall, a great golf experience!
RonDate Played: 10/17/2012
One waitress/bartender was snooty and condescending.

PaulDate Played: 10/10/2012

JoeDate Played: 10/02/2012
One of my favorite courses, just driving into the course reminds you of Augusta. A must-play.
ScottDate Played: 09/19/2012
Most excellent course.
GaryDate Played: 09/18/2012
There were way too many maintenance people on this course that did not make it a very enjoyable round. Always carts in motion. Bunkers were very inconsistent. Some great and some not filled with sand/hard. Disappointed this time with Caledonia.
DavidDate Played: 09/14/2012
Can't wait to play it again.
ThomasDate Played: 09/13/2012
Beautiful course. Great experience. The area had received 15 plus inches of rain in August, necessitating cart path only. One of our party has had two hip replacements, so it was a lot of walking. I would enjoy a score card that illustrates each of the holes. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very nice grill with great service.
BarbDate Played: 09/13/2012
This course was just excellent...enjoyed it very much.
TommyDate Played: 09/12/2012
The entrance to the facility is the most beautiful I have ever seen. I can't remember any specific hole that stood out. They were all very nice.
PatrickDate Played: 08/27/2012
Gorgeous course and setting. Course is immaculately maintained. Great variety of holes. One of my favorites in MB. Nice selection or merchandise in pro shop and food in the grill room was good as well.
TomDate Played: 08/15/2012
Caledonia is one of my favorite East Coast courses.
DanielDate Played: 08/13/2012
Caledonia is just a special place. I've been lucky to have played some of the world's nicest courses, but still, nothing can compare to the feeling I get while playing Caledonia. This time around, the greens were some of the nicest I've ever putted on. Also, the pin placements were in just about the most difficult locations, which made for a difficult, but still fun round. Don't change a thing. This is one of the best golf courses in the world. You'll be hard pressed to find a better stretch of holes than #'s 7-12 at Caledonia.
MarkDate Played: 08/07/2012
Played here 7/30 and absolutely loved the course. Only got 8 holes in because of heavy rain but couldn't find one thing wrong with the course. I'm a big Strantz fan and found this slightly different then Tobacco Road or Tot Hill. The staff was great with our rain checks and showing us updates on the rain. We're coming back next year to replay since we didn't have time to replay this year. All of the people in our group were in awe of the course. Since we started on the back 9 and only played 8 I missed out on playing the 18th hole which was a beautiful design. Can't wait to play it next year.
MattDate Played: 07/30/2012
Always a gem, best course in Myrtle Beach. Tee to green conditions were incredible. The greens were perfect, fast, rolled true. Very challenging, very beautiful. This is as good as it gets!
ChristineDate Played: 07/27/2012
Caledonia is absolutely beautiful, challenging and puts any private course around here to shame ... 2nd time we played it and it's still our favorite of all courses played! Not impressed with the pro shop ... never a good inventory of golf clothes for women and the staff could be friendlier ... actually the staff even in the pub could be friendlier ... not much personality ... the starter was pleasant and the attendant at the bag drop was very polite ... asked him to clean my clubs and did a great job ... maybe he was impressed with my tip which I'm sure is hard to come by ... my suggestion is to have some service training!
ScottDate Played: 07/08/2012
Would have liked to know that there is no driving range to warm up. A towel would have been nice based on greens fee and caliber of course.
GregDate Played: 07/04/2012
One of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. In great shape although greens were still a little bumpy due to punching a few weeks back. Each hole is charming and challenging, some large undulating greens make it lots of fun. Giant oak trees line the course for lots of shade and I needed it as it was 108 degrees. If you are going by yourself (as I did) confirm you can play with someone. More fun that way. Well worth the $$$$ for a great day at a course they call little Augusta.
NanderDate Played: 06/27/2012
Ranger kept pushing us even when we were within the 4.5 hour rate. They had a tournament scheduled and needed more carts. Not my fault, don't rush me because of poor scheduling and course management.

VERY OVERRATED for the price. No GPS, NO Driving range. In good shape. So many other nice places to play.
HarryDate Played: 06/07/2012
Best course every year. Conditions are perfect. A course appealing with great landscaping on ever hole. Alligators are seen every year. Course just took another increase in rate though, and will have to consider if I can keep a golf package with this on it within my group's budget.

DanDate Played: 05/16/2012
Fairways had many unrepaired/unsanded divots. For the amount charged, they should provide a yardage book. Starter was rude and never told our foursome we were starting on #10. We would have liked to have known there was no driving range.

One of the most enjoyable courses I've ever played. The overall condition of the course was second to none.

PeterDate Played: 05/06/2012
Phenomenal course! Beautifully manicured. Greens were spectacular ... fast and true! Tough track but a must-play when in Myrtle Beach. The only drawback were the tee boxes ... they weren't cut the day we played.

TomDate Played: 04/19/2012

DeanDate Played: 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.
JPDate Played: 04/03/2012
This course only gets away with what they charge because the conditioning used to be superior to any other area course and better than 90% of the private courses I've played. This time the conditioning was only average and while it's a nice layout it's not spectacular. In current condition it's way overpriced.
JerryDate Played: 03/07/2012
Picture was taken of our group and framed.
LawrenceDate Played: 03/06/2012
Diverse layout with multiple hazards that make you think about your shot. I would have liked to know ahead of time that I could have booked a much less expensive tee time.

Caledonia's natural beauty is unsurpassed in the region. Always a most pleasant experience. The architect utilized the natural terrain and river vistas to the best advantage, challenging but fair.

The course was a pleasure too play. Challenging but fair. Great condition for late December. Starter was most hospitable. Our favorite course.
PaulDate Played: 12/06/2011
Played the course on 12/1 for the first time and it was everything we could ever ask for in a golf course. The greens and conditioning were spectacular for December, and the course and service were far and away better then anything else we experienced for the 4 days we were there. I wish we could have played it everyday.

DanDate Played: 11/17/2011
Would've like to have known it was going to be cart path only & that the chowder house was closed. Greens in great condition. Tees & fairways were a little shaggy, but we understood that they were trying to grow the grass.
PeteDate Played: 11/12/2011
I loved the way the course was laid out. It feels like you and your buddies are on your own private course while you are playing. This is also a visually magnificent looking course. I will definitely come back to play and re-play it again.

GarieDate Played: 10/28/2011
Excellent variety of holes. Great layout as the course is set up so that you are usually secluded from the other holes from the one you are playing. This makes you feel like you are the only one one the course, which I love. Visually stunning course.

Considering the fact that it was cart paths only due to the weather the course was excellent and one that we will play again.
RichardDate Played: 10/04/2011

ScottDate Played: 09/07/2011
The attendants at the bag drop and the starter were great. (The grill room staff was overwhelmed by the Sunday crowd, so we didn't get lunch) the attention to detail on the course is obvious - very picturesque. Favourite holes with 13 / 14. Great day.

Great golf course - hard, but a great place to play.

KipDate Played: 08/29/2011
Enjoyed my round thoroughly in spite of my poor score but that's my fault.
RichardDate Played: 08/27/2011
Caledonia is in an elite category, from the practice set-up (but no driving range), to the tees, fairways and greens. My two sons-in-law and I agreed that this was the best conditioned course we had ever played. It was the day before Hurricane Irene was to go by, so the course was relatively empty, which made this a bigger treat.
JosephDate Played: 08/17/2011
Fun, fair track. Not fond of #9 and #18.
PaulDate Played: 07/27/2011
Just an excellent golf course, too many great holes to pick a favorite, but really like coming in on number 18 over the water with the clubhouse in the background.
FredDate Played: 07/25/2011
Love the setting, grand old southern style club house and Spanish oak-lined entrance make this a unique experience. Course is in excellent shape and offers a good challenge to the average golfer, yet gives them plenty of opportunity to score well on every hole. My only knock on it is that they don't have a range to warm up before your round.
DerekDate Played: 07/20/2011
Just beautiful. May be the best course I've ever played on.
GraceDate Played: 07/18/2011

MikeDate Played: 07/16/2011
The most beautiful golf course I have ever played. Mike Strantz is a fantastic designer. The conditions were A-1.
JohnDate Played: 06/25/2011
The rental clubs are not worth the price they charge. $45 for a set of old King Cobras and a putter that belongs on a miniature putt-putt course. The vintage Bull's Eye putter must be a running joke with the staff. Just checked, you can pick up a vintage Bull's Eye putter on Ebay for $7.50. I'm sure it was a nice putter 30 years ago.
JoeDate Played: 06/18/2011
Played it 6/15 and was in EXCELLENT shape. This is the eye candy of the Strand, however the layout is mediocre. Love the little bridge leading to the tee box on 14.
JoeDate Played: 06/16/2011
Fabulous course, best on the Strand. Played on 6/14 and it was in perfect shape. It's a little pricey but well worth it. They usually have an afternoon rate in the summer but it hasn't kicked in yet. It was cart path only which is always a little annoying, but the course more than made up for it. Tough greens to read in spots, bring your A-game. Oh, and watch out for the gators!
MichaelDate Played: 06/16/2011
We played early on Sunday, June 6th and the sprinklers had accidentally been left on all night. This made the course nice and soft but we had to keep the carts on path only until 10 a.m. Still, this is my favorite course and we have decided to make it a permanent part of our yearly rotation.
WilliamDate Played: 06/14/2011
Love the course. Always make it a point to play Caledonia and True Blue.

May be the best course in Myrtle Beach. Greens are difficult to read and some are very undulating.
JohnDate Played: 06/03/2011
Beautiful course in great condition. Would like to have known about the many gators on the course before hand. One of the prettiest courses I've played.
FrankDate Played: 06/02/2011
This is my 5th year in a row at Caledonia. It is a super layout and each hole is unique. I feel it would be a better course if some of the bunkers were eliminated. The design makes it a challenge alone and it does not need all those bunkers.

First time I have played Caledonia. Great experience.

Lack of a driving range is the reason we won't go back.

A very beautiful course and great test of golf.
JoeDate Played: 04/21/2011
Starter was extremely rude. Our second foursome was lost and he threatened to not let them out. Course was great although lots of debris on course from incoming storm. Large amount of leaves on greens blowing around. Foursome ahead of us was extremely slow and was only approached once by a ranger. Cart girl was non-existent. Saw her once on the first tee and then at the turn (at the food stop!). Greens extremely fast.
JeffDate Played: 04/21/2011
Natural beauty beyond compare, environmentally sensitive, gorgeous views and playability, greens are tough, relatively small and undulating and tough to get at but a stern test.

Best course in Myrtle Beach. Great fairway and greens. Layout is great. Don't like the cart-path-only on #1 and #18.
BarronDate Played: 04/16/2011
Unfortunately, the course was very very wet due to a heavy rain the night before.

(Liked the) par 3s.

We had an unbelievable time at Caledonia. The course was in great condition. The flowers were in full bloom, the gators were out catching sun.
LynnDate Played: 04/14/2011
Everything just beautiful. Will play every year.
WalterDate Played: 04/12/2011
Overall good condition.
SandyDate Played: 04/09/2011
Too expensive but great track; one of my favorite courses on the planet.
RonDate Played: 04/08/2011
The course was fantastic from condition to service! My only disappointment was having to start on the back nine rather then the front as I found the back far more difficult then the front. I needed the front to get the blood going so felt I would have scored better. I'm never a fan of starting on the back as I know designers set up a course for a reason.
JohnDate Played: 04/07/2011
My favorite course - country club feel.
MarkDate Played: 04/02/2011
Just an exceptional experience.
JeffDate Played: 03/31/2011
I think they need to really discount the second rounds.
BillDate Played: 03/28/2011
We love this course! There was just one guy in the pro shop who wasn't very kind. The grill was great if you could order early enough. They closed too early, like between 2 & 3 p.m., and some of us couldn't eat before our afternoon round.
JamesDate Played: 03/24/2011
I liked all but the short par 4 on the front, where your approach is to a small green surrounded by sand ... not a fair hole for most of us who are not low handicappers ... I doubt that we will play this course again.
HankDate Played: 01/21/2011
One of my favorite courses at the beach. A little short but makes you hit it straight and control your game.

Caledonia is always our favorite course. We love everything about it. The layout is playable and beautiful. The course is always in great shape.
JimDate Played: 11/25/2010
Beautiful landscaping, imaginative design.
DeborahDate Played: 11/19/2010
The course was cart path only on the day we played, so sometimes difficult to know the yardage as most yardage is only marked in the fairways. Overall, one of the nicest courses we have played - very fair for players of all handicaps.
JoseDate Played: 11/10/2010
Good experience. Yardage markers could be better. GPS in the carts would be great.
MikeDate Played: 11/03/2010
Should provide towels for golfers.

This is our second year to play this course and we like it so much we already plan to play it next year.
AnnDate Played: 10/22/2010
Beautiful course, friendly staff. Loved every minute of it. Will play there every time! We were all anxious to play it again now that we know what to expect. It was a great golf experience. We have had several people recommend this course to us and now we know why!
DennisDate Played: 10/22/2010
Everything was outstanding.
JohnDate Played: 10/20/2010
Beautiful course, too many starters at first tee time, picture taking was off-putting.
TomDate Played: 10/19/2010
Great course with great character, a course you would not mind playing every day!
MarleneDate Played: 10/19/2010
We play this course every year on vacation. It's the favorite of our whole family. Wish I could play #18 better so I could get cheers from the peanut gallery!
GaryDate Played: 10/16/2010
Best and most beautiful course we played by far!
RichardDate Played: 10/15/2010
Caledonia is the most aesthetically pleasing golf course I have ever played. Thank you for running a fine, fine course. Only fly in the ointment was the condition of some of the bunkers, often mostly mud; we attributed that to your recent deluge.
HowardDate Played: 10/15/2010
People are excellent. Course condition average.
OwenDate Played: 10/15/2010
Disappointed that you choose to show the incorrect total yardage for each set of tees. That is fraudulent, really, as we do not get what is expected for our fees.
JohnDate Played: 10/12/2010
Great course in great shape.
JohnDate Played: 10/07/2010
The layout and conditions of Caledonia make it the overwhelming favorite of our group. It's truly the jewel of Myrtle Beach golf.
DouglasDate Played: 10/01/2010
Wonderful course. Great layout and the course was in wonderful shape.
KellyDate Played: 10/01/2010
Great course; my second favorite in the Myrtle Beach area.
RichDate Played: 09/29/2010
This course has a great layout with first-class conditions, but for Myrtle Beach it is way overpriced (3 times the normal MB course rate!) ... There are courses in MB that do compare for much, much less $. Furthermore, the course is in the middle of nowhere ...
ArthurDate Played: 09/22/2010
It has been our favorite course in Myrtle Beach since we have been coming to the area - the layout and conditions are perfect.
BobDate Played: 09/22/2010
Rough was way too high.
GeraldDate Played: 09/16/2010
... next to Pebble and Sawgrass, my favorite place to play ... the entrance alone is worth the price of admission.

What a layout. Our favorite course in the Myrtle Beach area!! Ranger a bit overzealous.

Absolutely the most beautiful course we have ever played. Thank you Mr. Strantz. Very wet but quite a treat.
FrankDate Played: 08/02/2010
Always enjoy playing Caledonia. Greens were great. The 9th hole needs to be spruced up to make it slightly more challenging. Attendents cleaned the clubs and placed them in my car.
NickDate Played: 07/27/2010
Great golf course, we will be returning again next year. Caledonia and TPC are both superior to others in the area.

RobDate Played: 06/02/2010
The drive into the course is the best in Myrtle, the course is well maintained and the layout is spectacular. All staff that we encountered were helpful, courteous, professional and available. The clubhouse is a true gem. All want to play again.
TomDate Played: 06/02/2010
Very enjoyable, would go back.
BrettDate Played: 05/31/2010
I've read all the hype about Caledonia and finally got to play it on 5/28. The greens were the best I played all week. The fairways were plush and there is a lot of pretty scenery. I think that the layout is OK. I go on the contrary to many people and think that its sister course True Blue is an all-around better golf course. The only hole on this course that seems like it doesn't belong here is the 9th hole. Aside from the pretty flowers they were planting on the tee box, it's a 110 yard par 3 with eye-soring bunkers in front of the green. I may be nit-picking here, but it was very relevant because it was our finishing hole since we teed off 10.
BixDate Played: 05/20/2010
Everything was great.
BillDate Played: 05/18/2010
Course always in fantastic condition; great layout.
BrandonDate Played: 05/18/2010
Course was beautiful as always (played on May 16th). Greens are always a little funky but the rest of the course makes up for it. Have been playing this course every year since 1995 and it gets better every year.
PaulDate Played: 05/16/2010
Course was in great shape as always.
PhilDate Played: 05/14/2010
Always enjoy this course although the score did not indicate as such for this round.
SeanDate Played: 05/12/2010
An excellent experience. The course was in fabulous condition, all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. One of the best courses I have ever played and am likely to play. Many thanks.
RayDate Played: 05/08/2010
One of the prettier courses in MB. Lots of sand on the back nine.
AlvinDate Played: 05/08/2010
I don't like this course. Course officials are always telling us to hurry up, even when we have to wait on the groups in front of us. My vote is to never go back.
BenDate Played: 05/07/2010
This was the best course we have played in MB over the past 5 years.

Best public course in the U.S.

(We liked) the condition of the course and the layout in general. A challenging but fair course. We play it every year!!
BradDate Played: 05/02/2010
Excellent course. Would have liked to see more sand in the bunkers (or at least the sand that was in them raked - the sand was tamped down by rain or watering).
HerbertDate Played: 04/30/2010
One of my favorite courses in the Carolinas.
PhilDate Played: 04/29/2010
Interesting layout. challenging but not overly difficult. Best scenery of all courses played.
RogerDate Played: 04/28/2010
Beautiful, well maintained course; sand in traps was not good - packed down - more like playing from hardpan than sand; had issue with ranger on pace of play - made our first group drop in fairway on their 3rd and 4th holes without teeing off, did not give them a warning and ask them to catch up - they were behind but that's no way to treat someone who's paying $199.
GaryDate Played: 04/28/2010
The service, course conditions and layout make us willing to pay the price and come back each year. I wish we wouldn't be hassled about playing time when there really aren't that many people on the course or if a group is not holding up the group behind them.
DaveDate Played: 04/28/2010
I have brought a group of 12 - 16 to Myrtle Beach for the last 10 years and we play Caledonia at least once every year and it is by far our favorite.
JohnDate Played: 04/24/2010
Caledonia has the most beautiful eighteen holes in my playing experience. Some courses I have played may have some holes that are nore beautiful but none can match the beauty of the whole eighteen at Caledonia.
MikeDate Played: 04/24/2010
I have played Caledonia several times and have never been disappointed. Great course. I'm returning for this year's World Am Tour and hope I get to play your course again while there.
RickDate Played: 04/21/2010
Caledonia was an awesome experience. I guess we hit this course at the right time of year. I could play this course over and over. Lots of water that really makes you think twice of your club selection. This course is one that I will never forget. We couldn't help but to play another round after our first 18 holes. After we finished I walked around and took some more pictures.
NicholasDate Played: 04/18/2010
Love the golf course - very playable for the average player.
JimDate Played: 04/15/2010

Cart path only was unnecessary! There was only one or two holes that needed it.

Holes 9, 10, 11, 17 & 18 are most memorable and always fun to play. Course was in great shape for mid-March.

Caledonia was a treat to play. We played this course on our last day.
StephenDate Played: 03/21/2010
It's a nice course that our group likes to play every year. They should add GPS units to the carts instead of renting a handheld unit for $10.
GrantDate Played: 03/16/2010
Everything was what we expected.
MickDate Played: 03/15/2010
Nice course and a fun layout. Greens and fairways were good. Tee boxes and traps were a little rough. Skip the hot dogs in the half-way house.
BillDate Played: 03/14/2010
The overall condition of this course was great. By far the best of all we played. This was everyone's favorite course. We will play this one again next year.
JohnDate Played: 03/11/2010
We had a 1.5-hour frost delay but the experience was great. I wish we came down later in March to witness the flowers blooming and the fairways green.
JohnDate Played: 03/03/2010
Really nice course - sign me up again!
Payton34everDate Played: 02/20/2010
Without question Caledonia is a premier, first-class, 5-star golf course in all aspects. If given the chance, this is a must-play golf course and one you will never forget after playing - but take a few pictures to show off and remember. Doesn't get any better on the Grand Strand, let alone the country.
JimDate Played: 01/10/2010
Once you get beyond the hefty peak greens fees ($200+), this place is great. The only small complaint I have is the 9th hole, it's as though they only designed 17 holes and had to throw one more in at the end of construction. It is a short, boring par 3 which would be fine on most courses but not when compared to the other 17 holes here. All said, I loved this course.
FrankDate Played: 01/06/2010
I played Caledonia some years ago and this time I found out that this is a short, tough track. The greens were just awesome if you landed on a uphill putt, if not forget it.
KristinDate Played: 12/25/2009
Caledonia is what golf should be: A test of one's all-around game played upon a beautifully manicured course that uses the natural surroundings as a backdrop. It's beauty is inside and out as the clubhouse offers a warm and inviting feeling. The staff was polite and courteous and the old plantation feeling of the lounge made it tough to leave. The only thing I would have changed that day was the weather (cold), but the true essence of Caledonia will warm my heart through the coldest of New England winters.
AtsushiDate Played: 12/21/2009

Again, expected better. The greens had been aerated/sliced and the greens did not roll well.
LairdDate Played: 10/13/2009
We love Caldeonia and play it every year. The only complaint this year was the pace of play was awfully slow. The rangers could have done a better job of moving it along.
RayDate Played: 10/06/2009
Great course that lives up to its rating.
PaulDate Played: 10/05/2009
The course was in great shape. The course is fair. Fairways were great where if you hit a good shot off the tee your ball sat up. It was just and enjoyable round of golf. The course wasn't over booked like some courses are, so you didn't feel you were on the clock on every shot. Wish more courses were set up this way.
DennisDate Played: 09/28/2009
Course is overrated.
BrianDate Played: 09/17/2009
I enjoyed the fact that we felt like we were out there by ourselves and didn't have the neighborhood watching. Something to be said for the lack of homes on a course and that it makes playing much more enjoyable.

Great course; a must.
AmyDate Played: 09/09/2009
Beautifully groomed course!
DanDate Played: 09/03/2009
Just a beautiful course. We played True Blue last year, so we knew what to expect. These both, in my opinion, are the best courses in Myrtle Beach.
DanitaDate Played: 07/31/2009
There was no driving range to practice on, nor instructions to go to sister course beforehand.
BrentDate Played: 07/20/2009
The setting is amazing. Clubhouse is one of the best in MB. The course is tough but fair - a little short but the design more than makes up for it. Every hole was enjoyable. Condition was immaculate for late summer. Must play.
WalterDate Played: 07/09/2009
beautiful setting. Tee complexes accentuate scenery. 18th hole is wonderful and exemplifies the entire round. Courteous staff, but I loaded my own clubs.
CharlesDate Played: 07/05/2009
One of my favorites. I try to play every time I'm in Myrtle Beach. Great layout, holes all have a different character. Eighteen is a great finishing hole.
JohnDate Played: 06/28/2009
Regardless of how long the course plays it's the nicest course, best layout, and best maintained course in Myrtle Beach. This should be considered a poor man's Augusta National.
MikeDate Played: 05/29/2009
One of the 10 best courses we have ever played. A fantastic day of golf. Quiet and peaceful setting. Deserving of its high rankings.
BobDate Played: 04/11/2009

LawrenceDate Played: 03/15/2009
Conditions did not warrant the cost.
CharlesDate Played: 03/10/2009
I had heard so much about it and had played the other top courses in the area. Frankly for what I paid, I was very very disappointed. It was too short and too easy to be considered a great golf course. Beautiful setting, great job with style. Very nice people but average golf course. As I said way too short and too many very average holes. If I had paid what I did for moderate golf courses in the area, I would understand. I am afraid I don't get it.
GregDate Played: 02/23/2009
Absolutely, the nicest course I have ever played. Well worth the few extra bucks.
BillyDate Played: 02/17/2009
Commented on December 15, 2008: Early or late sitting on the back porch and watching golfers coming into 18 and hitting over water to the green is a hoot. It use to be more fun because everyone got to cheering, clapping and raggin guys (gals) who dump it into tidal waters of the old plantation. It must have got out of hand ... or someone put 6 balls into the drink, got upset and complained. Should have hit a better shot. It is as much fun but still worth sitting on the porch having a little pop and betting on if someone hits the green or goes into the drink by looking at their practice swing.
StephenDate Played: 02/17/2009
Commented on December 10, 2008: I finally got to play Caledonia in January 2008, six years after driving down oak alley to hopefully catch a glimpse of a few holes. When you go play Caledonia, make sure you get their early to take it all in on the back porch.
