True Blue Golf Plantation
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.

Wonderful course and layout. Probably the best I’ve played in MB. Cart path/waste bunkers a bit Confusing but didn’t affect my experience. Will definitely play again

We had a coupon to golf today at true blue for cart fee only. Coupon was to expire at end of March. The club would not honor the coupon. Said they didn't honor coupons for March. We had to pay $119 to play. Contacted the course before we made the two hour ride up to play and was told coupon was valid. Thought this was very unprofessional by staff. Was a great course, however the unexpected cost made this a bad experience.

Love the course and the staff.

Keep in mind this was ONE week after one of the most brutal hurricanes the Carolinas had ever seen. You certainly wouldn't have known it from the awesome staff and the great course conditions!

Always enjoy playing here. A must play when we come down and play in the Myrtle Beach area. Enjoyed eating on the patio overlooking the 18th hole.

RobDate Played: 04/30/2017
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.
SteveDate Played: 03/13/2017
No GPS, cart paths difficult and poorly maintained. No club scrubbers. Course layout was confusing and inconvienient.
TimothyDate Played: 01/08/2016
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.
TCDate Played: 07/27/2015
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.
TomDate Played: 05/06/2015
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.
EdDate Played: 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.
JoeDate Played: 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.
MikeDate Played: 10/28/2014
We were rushed and there was nowhere to go waiting on every shot not what you would expect

Played here 3 times love this place as always greens,tee boxes,fairways great condition this course has it all great par 5's good mix of par 4's tough par 3's this place is a tough test also on 18 saw a gator in fairway sand trap staff was great too
BenoitDate Played: 06/02/2014

Big rain night befofe but nice course
PeraltaDate Played: 01/10/2014
What a great day. Staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful. We played in under 4 hours on a beautiful course like this, can't ask for much more than that! Solid 10 in my book, will be back.
GregoryDate Played: 12/02/2013
Phenomenal course from 1-18! Love the 5 par 5's and 5 par 3's really gives you a chance to grip and rip drive and score well as well. Staff was great, our group makes this the last day with Caledonia every year! We will see you again next year! - Greg

Cart paths are way too far from tee boxes and greens. Speed of play is hurt by this. I would never play this course again.
NathanDate Played: 08/12/2013
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.
JamesDate Played: 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.
DavidDate Played: 07/09/2013
Sand traps were awful
TomDate Played: 05/07/2013
The employees have forgotten that the customer is important. They did not use good judgemnent in customer relations involving starting and pace of play. We will not return here. Course conditions were good.
BillDate Played: 04/19/2013
Great golf experience. The course guide book is an absolute must or you will be in real trouble off the tees on most holes.

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.

Nicest course we played. Loved the practice areas. Free range balls and friendly staff were nice perks.

MichaelDate Played: 07/08/2012
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.
DennisDate Played: 05/25/2012
Greens are way too fast for the average player.
RogerDate Played: 04/19/2012
RandyDate Played: 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.
JeffDate Played: 11/30/2011
Love the course. Would like to have GPS in carts to make it even better. There were, though, plenty of markings to show distance.
TomDate Played: 11/13/2011
DaveDate Played: 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.
GeorgeDate Played: 09/09/2011
PaulDate Played: 08/28/2011
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.
PeterDate Played: 06/10/2011
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.
DwayneDate Played: 05/12/2011
Great course, great time. A must for anyone visiting Myrtle Beach to play golf.
BillDate Played: 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.
DeborahDate Played: 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.
RobertDate Played: 11/13/2010
Stunning course, loved the fairways, like walking on a carpet.
WalterDate Played: 10/18/2010
Greens not as smooth as expected. Overall experience was good and will return in the future.

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.
ChuckDate Played: 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.
RogerDate Played: 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.
MichaelDate Played: 11/11/2009
Can't wait to play here again.
DavidDate Played: 07/14/2009
Very challenging course from the blue tees. Just enough sand and water to keep the driver important.
