DESCRIPTION
About Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

Entering the narrow, live oak-lined road to Caledonia Golf and Fish Club’s antebellum clubhouse is like traveling back to another time and place. Built upon the site of a working Southern rice plantation, Caledonia has been nationally recognized for both its design and natural beauty. Upon its opening in 1995, Caledonia ranked fifth in Golf Digest’s list of Best New Public Courses in America, and in 2000 it ranked 30th in Golf Magazine’s list of “Top 100 You Can Play in America” by Golf Magazine. Golf Digest also rated Caledonia as one of the “Top 31 Best Upscale Courses in America” as well as awarding it 4-1/2 stars in it’s “Places to Play” list. Architect Mike Strantz’s creative design takes challenging holes and weaves them through the natural South Carolina setting, providing golfers with difficult shots yet rewarding views. In fact, this 6,526 yard, 70-par course boasts 18 signature holes that have made Caledonia one of the top premier courses in the South. The classic layout around salt marshes and forests in Pawleys Island help make Caledonia a world-class experience

Great golf but a little deceptive on second round

Great golf course , excellent shape for January, but made reservation for 36 holes...pace of play exceedingly slow and told we could play as many holes as we could get in on second round, we told pro shop we would pay for another 18, but informed we were getting a “deal” on replay at a 9 hole rate, again, despite the fact we would pay for 18 holes, then after playing 9 holes behind a group that took longer than the final group at the US Open, were yanked off the course on the 10th hole and told we only paid for 9 holes.

Best of the Best!

Caledonia is Myrtle Beach golf at it's finest. The drive in is reminiscent of Magnolia Lane. Course was in immaculate conditions. During the golf season they serve clam chowder which is excellent as well! Worth every dollar

Review #5722

From the moment you turn into the drive, Caledonia is a feast for the senses. The driveway through the arch of trees, with Spanish moss hanging, down to the turn at the top of the drive and your first view of the clubhouse, to the condition of the course, which was immaculate.
The staff were welcoming and friendly, all around the club.
The course is challenging, not overly long, but driving into the right places to be able to attach the greens, one or two of which are quite small, particularly the par 5 10th, which, if you are to hit it in two, requires a long iron or wood, over a large waste bunker to a small target, between two more bunkers and the entrance road.
Opening with a straight forward par 4, you get welcomed well and truly by the 2nd, a long par 5, with a large tree on the right side that forces you to fade or play safe left, but avoid the rough if you want to get there in 2. The courses has some picturesque par 3's and they begin at the 3rd, not long but the waste bunkers are large and frame the hole nicely. Each hole from here on, welcomes you to a different view, and challenge. The Par 5 8th hole allows you to choose to take on a big drive over the bunkers and gives a good chance to reach it, but there is a lake in front which will catch any approaches not perfectly struck. 9 is a short 3, but with a tricky green that looks small from the tee box but actually affords a little more room. The back nine doesn't let up and the Par 3 11th is a good looking hole with a narrow front to the green and a stream running along the left side. It doesn't let up with beauty abounding. The 18th may not be everyone's cup of tea, you are forced to play short off the tee and driver isn't necessary for most, as position is absolutely key to allow a simple pitch across the river to the green.
Allow yourself time to sit on the porch on one of the rocking chairs, watching others approach shots on 18 and taking in the beauty some more - it is well worth it.
I played a couple of other courses in the area, but this is spectacular in it's beauty and I will return, and highly recommend a visit to this gem of a course.

Review #5373

I made a late reservation, but was paired with a three-some. When I arrived the staff was courteous and welcoming. They arranged for me to meet my playing partners and get ready to play. Although this was my first time st Caledonia I felt like a frequent client. The course was fantastic and so I really enjoyed my time. I look forward to my next trip down.

This is the nicest golf course in the Myrtle Beach area. Absolutely pristine from tee to green. Staff is very friendly. Pace of play was great. Even with the high price tag, it's worth every penny.

Review #4844

Incredibly beautiful course. Everything was in great shape and well manicured. No driving range which was disappointing and the "60 yard" practice area could use some help. Only issue was the threesome I got paired with. Not one of them broke 125 and had no business on a course that nice. I suggested we let the group behind us play through and they wouldn't. Rangers never did anything to speed them up. They were upset and I didn't blame them one bit.

Review #4840

Course was awesome - really enjoyed the round. My only regret was that we played the Blue tees and wish we had played the back tees. We had to play a lot of 3 irons - 3 woods on par 4's. Next time will play from the tips.
Very beautiful and interesting layout - course conditions were great from tee to green.
Service was top notch - will definitely be back.

Having heard for years that Caledonia was one of the best courses on the Grand Strand we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The course was all that I expected and then some. Can't wait to go back.
