Description

About True Blue

Mike Strantz did a fine job designing his fourth signature course, True Blue. In 1998, True Blue was immediately praised upon opening next to Strantz’s previously designed course, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club. Because of his work at both courses, Strantz went on to win the 1998 award for “Architect of the Year.”


True Blue is a par-72 course which can stretch up to 7,126. Strantz designed this course keeping true to the natural beauty of the 19th century indigo and rice plantation that True Blue is set on. He also tried to design the course after his muses of Pine Valley and Pinehurst #2.


The layout of this course is fun, dynamic, dramatic, and somewhat challenging. True Blue features many elevation changes, sprawling fairways, and undulating greens. Because of its setting, this Pawleys Island course offers a more relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach, and True Blue offers a beautiful view of oak trees, tall pines, salt marshes, and tidal creeks, giving golfers a glimpse of the Lowcountry.


In addition to Strantz’s award for his design, True Blue has won various awards recognizing the quality of the layout. In fact, True Blue made the list of “America’s Top 100 Public Course” and also won the award for the “No. 1 Public Course in the Myrtle Beach Area.”


With five sets of tees at each hole, True Blue offers the opportunity for players of all skill-sets to enjoy a round of golf. So when you are in the Myrtle Beach area, True Blue is a must-play for all golfers.

"I really did not go to the grill so I just gave a middle of the road rating - fairways way somewhat chewed up - meaning lots of unrepaired divots, but not terrible - greens were in excellent shape, a little fast, but hey that made it very challenging and fun If I had one complaint, it would be that there was no fog delay and for the first 7 holes, we could not see what we were doing; had a yardage book, but still did not really get to enjoy those earlier holes and cost some strokes with not seeing what you were hitting to and such"

"Played here 2 weeks after hurricane Mathew rolled through the MB area at 1pm. Would not have known it based on condition of course/playing areas. Everything was top notch and of course as repeat customer love the layout. got around in 4 hr 40 min which was a little long but not enough to ruin the experience. ranger kept checking in keeping us updated on the issue which was a few holes in front of us. definitely a must if playing down in pawley's plantation area."

"The course was great!! The only reason I did not rate them higher was due to how wet they were. This should not be taken as a negative because it was from the tremendous amount of rain from previous days. The grounds keepers did a great job getting it to playable conditions!! Did not finish due to thunderstorms!!"

"Course is always in great shape. I like it because there are several ways you can play it. You can gamble or play it straightup. Food in the rest. is really good, and fairly priced. If you like clam chowder, u have to try this. This chowder definitely has 3 times the clams, and not just broth and a little clams, and potatoes like most of the rest. down here. Try different sets of tees, and you will see the different angles you will have to play the course. At other courses u change the tees, all you get for the most part is length. "

"Beautiful track but very difficult. Staff very friendly. Multiple tee boxes but plays longer than the card says. Claims to be fairly wide open but seemed to get very tight on approaches to the greens. Bring sun block because you are sure to find the beach. Seemed like a thousand sand traps on the course. You find a green side bunker and you will pay. Greens were very fair and not nearly as difficult as Caledonia. Very nice course but for a bogey type golfer it will mentally and physically wear you out. Totally exhausted after 18. Can't wait to go back!"

"Frustrated by three things. Greens were bad and no concession was made beyond being able to leave after two holes which on a busy friday is not really an option to make another plan. Starter said we should have no trouble getting out again for replay so we did not make another tee time. When we finished they were all booked so we had to scramble to call around and find a ssecond place. lastly the pace of play was painful. the round was was 5:15 i think. Nice layout; when not diseased i'm sure the greens are nice. Paid twice the money for the course and it was the worst experience of the four courses we played."
