Mike Strantz’s brief but illustrious design career produced six publicly accessible golf courses, three of which now have a place on Golfweek’s recently released 2020 list of the “Top 100 Best Courses You Can Play in the U.S.” We’re beyond proud to call two of these, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club (#62) and True Blue Golf Club (#95), our very own.
Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Club join Strantz’s Tobacco Road Golf Club (#99) in an illustrious collection of courses that includes many of the world’s very best, including list-topper Pebble Beach Golf Links and fellow top-10 entries Pinehurst No. 2, Whistling Straits and The Black Course at Bethpage State Park.
Caledonia and True Blue join The Dunes Golf & Beach Club (#48) as the Myrtle Beach area’s nationwide Golfweek honorees for this year.
“We’re humbled to receive this honor. Our team, with full support of our ownership group work hard to provide a quality experience at True Blue and Caledonia,” said Bob Seganti, general manager at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Club and its travel partner, Caledonia Golf Vacations. “It speaks volumes about Mike Strantz and his enduring legacy that our courses are still considered among America’s best, more than two decades after joining the Myrtle Beach golf scene (Caledonia in 1994, True Blue in 1998).
“We’re thankful to be included, and offer heartfelt congratulations to our Myrtle Beach friends at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club for their honor as well.”
Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Club have made recurring appearances in this and other nationwide listings since their respective debuts in 1994 and 1998. They join three additional South Carolina venues in Golfweek’s nationwide ranking, highlighted by The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort (#8), home of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championship as well as the 1991 Ryder Cup. Sea Pines Resort at Harbour Town Golf Links (#22) and May River at Montage Palmetto Bluff (#53) round out the Palmetto State’s entrants on this list.
