Located 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach, Pawleys Island, S.C., is the Grand Strand\'s answer to Hilton Head Island, another coastal Carolina golf nucleus where quality rules.
Pawleys Island is home to about 10 golf courses, and three made Golf Digest\'s list of America\'s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses 07/08: The Heritage Club, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club and True Blue Plantation. All are excellent Carolina golf courses worthy of any duffer\'s \"dream play\" list, but getting on these fairways doesn\'t have to be a fantasy, as these babies are public.
Here\'s a bit more about the best and the brightest golf courses on Pawleys Island
The Heritage Club: At No. 46 on Golf Digest\'s list, The Heritage Club is the highest-ranked Pawleys Island golf course. The par-71, 7,040-yard course is the focal point of Heritage Plantation and truly a sight to behold.
A magnificent avenue of oaks leads you into the club, where a 12,000-square-foot Southern colonial clubhouse overlooks the Waccamaw River. On the golf course, centuries-old trees, blossoming flowers and rice fields endow each hole with a different and intriguing look.
Caledonia Golf and Fish Club: Designed by Mike Strantz, this 6,526-yard track was ranked the 5th Best New Public Course in America by Golf Digest when it opened in 1995. Today, the magazine has it at No. 86 on its list of the nation\'s 100 best public tracks. The ranking is well deserved, according to National Golf Editor Tim McDonald.
\"Of all the \'plantation golf\' in the Carolinas, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club may be the finest, at least among those clubs the nonaristocrats can get into,\" McDonald wrote in a review for MyrtleBeachGolf.com.
The course is routed through some of the most stunning terrain in the Carolina low country, and its beautiful landscaping and interesting mix of holes make Caledonia more than a pleasure to play. Caledonia has some of the most interesting par 3s in the area, forcing you to use anything from a pitching wedge to a 3-wood.
