Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

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. 1-866-694-2448 $$$$

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.

Course was in great condition. A must play when in Myrtle Beach.

Derek (Quincy, MA)


One of my all-time favorite courses to play. Wonderful staff, Amazing layout with immaculate conditions. There really is nothing like Caledonia. A must play.

Barry (Arlington, VA)


Beautiful course the back 9 is hard but it is definitely a course you should play.

Tommy (Providence, RI)


Unbelievable experience! Have played 40 plus courses in SC, you guys were hands down the most impressiveness and the best course I’ve seen thus far, even with all of the rain. Thank you to you and all of your staff !

Byron (Forest City, NC)


Love this place! Always a relaxing setting and beautiful course!

Ryan (Burlington, KY)


Amazing. From the club sandwich and service. Course was in great shape and picture perfect!!!

Jason (Welcome, NC)


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.

Bill (Braintree, MA)


The golf course was in great condition, the staff was awesome!! Cannot wait to play this course again.

Shaun (Peabody, MA)


Was a phenomenal experience pleasantly surprised with the course, was in pristine condition will play it every time I come back to Myrtle Beach was disappointed although that there was no snack cart

Natalie (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Fabulous! This was my 2nd time playing Caledonia. Beautiful course!

William (Smithtown, NY)


great course

Mike (Babylon, NY)


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.

Timothy (Surfside Beach, SC)


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

Daniel (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)


This is one of the best courses I've ever played in the Myrtle Beach area!

Jason (Haddon Heights, NJ)


Amazing layout and great course!



Just a great golfing experience. Course was in excellent shape. Nothing beats the after round veranda hang.



Top notch great conditions and visually stunning course. Played from the proper tees it is our groups favorite Myrtle Beach course.



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.



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.

Robert (Neptune, NJ)


My favorite Grand Strand course period. If it was in NJ I would belong. Eagled 7 and parred 18 which was wonderful

Brian (Honea Path, SC)





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.



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.

Raymond (Clarington, PA)


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.

Tim (Chandler, AZ)


Wonderful course with many interesting holes.



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.

Michael (Forest Lake, MN)


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.

James (Orleans, ON)


Beautiful course but greens fee pricing is getting way too high. Will probably be the last time I play it.

Byron (Marietta, OH)


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



Best course on the Strand! All employees were as nice as anyone could expect! Took a group of 19 and we switched our last package day back to Caledonia for another round! This place was the highlight of our trip!

Karl (Winston Salem, NC)


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

Lyle (Sicklerville, NJ)


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!!

Michael (Dyer, IN)



Daniel (LaTuque, Quebec)


Best course I ever played.

John (Pittsburgh, PA)


One of the best courses I played in years.

David (Kansas City, MO)



Michel (Laval, Quebec)



Walt (Bridgewater, NJ)


Great experience.

Ray (Porth, UK)


Excellent course in super condition. But at $160 a round will think twice about playing there again.

Kenneth (Poolesville, MD)



Lynda (Saint Helena Island, SC)


Always in great shape and they make you feel so welcome. Great staff.



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.

William (Elyria, OH)



Michael (Hugo, MN)


Very good.

Bill (Oshawa, ON)



Scott (Oshawa, ON)


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.



Excellent course, not long but challenging.

Scott (Farmington, CT)


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.
