As golf course origins go, it\'s not exactly field of dreams.
Faced with rising property taxes in the early 1990s, the members of the Caledonia
Fish Club figured they\'d better start
making some money on 120 acres of vacant land the club owned on Pawleys Island south
of Myrtle Beach. Thus was the
Caledonia Golf & Fish Club born.
From this practical beginning grew one of the golf courses that defined the Grand
Strand\'s shift to upscale golf and its
emergences as one of America\'s top golf destinations.
Opened in 1994, Caledonia was the late Mike Strantz\'s first signature design, and
it\'s become an area favorite. Believe the
hype: This course is imaginative, challenging and unique, with scenery, service and
ambiance to match.
An avid artist who was known to walk course properties making sketches before he
started on blueprints, Strantz chose to
heavily shape the fishing club\'s land, adding plenty of undulation, while seamlessly
sculpting natural elements into his design.
Several mighty oak trees play integral roles, most notably in front of the seventh
green and on the 13th fairway. Only one
of the property\'s many oaks was cut down to make way for the course.
Don\'t be misled by the length (6,526 yards from the championship tees). While it\'s
considered less difficult than its
Strantz-designed sister course, True Blue, Caledonia has some teeth, especially on
the back nine.
\"If I had to truthfully handicap the golf course, I think the first four or five
hardest holes would be on the back,\" Head
Professional Todd Welden said.
