Caledonia #14With modern design features and a Lowcountry backdrop that is sure to take your breath away, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club is one of the premier golf experiences on the Grand Strand. Designed by the late, great Mike Strantz, Caledonia offers the ultimate combination of creativity, marked by large, undulating greens, strategic bunkering and many of the Lowcountry’s native elements such as marshy areas, towering live oaks and flowers in bloom. Caledonia is truly a must-play for locals, newcomers and returning visitors alike.
For Caledonia Head Golf Professional Marc Guertin, one stretch of Caledonia’s layout – holes #14, 15, 16 – exemplifies both the challenge and brilliance of the course.
Caledonia #15“I would say #14, 15, 16 is the best stretch,” says Guertin. “This stretch tests every part of your game and usually plays a major role in the outcome of your round.”
Oaks and flowers set the perfect backdrop for #14, a lengthy par 4 that challenges players to hit it out over a water hazard to the left to gain a better angle into the green from the fairway.
“You start with a walk across a floating bridge to the back tee with a substantial carry to the fairway and water down the left side, all the way to the green,” Guertin says.
Hole #15 is another daunting par 4 featuring prominent bunkering down the left. Driving the ball accurately here is a must. And the approach is no slouch. As Guertin cautions, “There is a very narrow opening to the green between two pot bunkers protecting any attempt to chase one onto the green.”
Caledonia #16Hole #16 finishes this marquee stretch of par 4s, with more fairway bunkers and a small lake protecting the green to the front and right. Notes Guertin, “You need to fit a drive between the fairway bunkers, so you have a clear approach from an elevated fairway down and over the pond.”
