Golfers who visit the Grand Strand, “golf capital of the world,” and local S.C. players have something new to brag about if they have played on Caledonia Golf & Fish Club or True Blue Golf Club golf courses; Caledonia has been included again on Golf Digest’s 2015-16 “America’s 100 Greatest Courses” list, and Caledonia and True Blue are both included on the “Best in State”list.
The ranked courses moved up the national list this year by 24 places, from 97 to number 73, and also ranked number in S.C.: Caledonia at number 21 and True Blue at number 29. The courses are ranked among the premier public-access golf courses in America. Rankings are based on Golf Digest’s course rater reviews after playing each course. Each course requires a minimum of 45 evaluations accumulated within eight years.
“We are humbled and appreciative of all of the acclaim and support we have received since opening more than twenty years ago,” said Bob Seganti, PGA director of golf operations for Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Club. “Being included on Golf Digest’s lists, among so many amazing courses, is a tremendous honor. We know that it means we are doing what we set out to do – giving Grand Strand golfers a great place to play and a reason to return.”
The land-adjacent golf courses were designed by award-winning golf course architect, Mike Strantz who sought to make nature the star of his projects. Both Caledonia and True Blue were developed to fully embrace the natural beauty of their Lowcountry surroundings and are carefully maintained to provide players with world-class golf experiences.
