PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (April 9, 2007) - Of all the \"plantation golf\" in the
Carolinas, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club may be the finest, at least among those
clubs the non-aristocrats can get into.

A canopy of ancient live oaks envelops you as you make the drive up to the
antebellum clubhouse and from there, it just gets better. The golf course is routed
through some of the best terrain in the lowcountry - wild and beautiful - as befits
a site where hunting and fishing has been going on virtually undisturbed for

Little bits of history are scattered around: the old fish shed, photos of long-ago
sportsmen holding up their fresh catches, foundations and chimneys of plantation
houses long gone, 200-year-old bricks brought over as ballast from England, now used
in retaining walls and steps.

\"To me, it\'s 'Gone with the Wind\' with golf,\" said John Springs, general manager of
Caledonia and the nearby True Blue Plantation. \"It\'s on a piece of property my
family had when I was a young boy, and I grew up hunting and fishing there. I had,
personally, one of the finest duck blinds around 100 yards from the clubhouse.\"

The land itself has been used since the 1700s, when a Scottish immigrant named
Robert Nesbitt married Elizabeth Pawley, whose family originally founded Pawleys
Island and after whom the island is named. He turned it into one of the largest
plantations in the state, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the rice fields on
the western borders of the Waccamaw River.

They still fish on the old plantation. Golf is the recent addition, starting when
the club opened in 1994.
