Mike Strantz has created some greens that will dominate your dreams (or nightmares) when your head hits the pillow, in anticipation of playing all the great, challenging putting surfaces at Bulls Bay, Tobacco Road, True Blue and Caledonia. One in particular that stands out to us is the par-three 6th at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club.
When asked by Golf Club Atlas in 2000 who inspired his work the most, Mike Strantz didn’t hesitate to reference the aforementioned Scottish golf course architect whose course designs span the globe through four continents. And MacKenzie’s thoughts above serve as no better descriptor than it does with one of Strantz’s Lowcountry holes: the short, par-four 8th at True Blue Golf Club.
As Steve Dresser of the Steve Dresser Golf Academy at True Blue Golf Club shows us, there’s often a natural tendency for the casual golfer to take “inside” to the extreme when they swing, and the actual result often becomes the opposite of what they think they’re trying to do. Let Steve show you in this video how you can overcome this tendency.
Mike Strantz puts an emphasis on accuracy when you play one of his golf courses. Missing fairways and greens at many of his properties often results in a penal outcome. On the par-five 10th at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club you see visual evidence of this right off the tee, and also around the green.
Known as the “Maverick of Golf Course Architecture,” Mike Strantz is known for his wild golf hole designs. The par-three 3rd hole at True Blue and the short par-three 9th at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club are just a few that come to mind. One of the tamer Strantz masterpieces is the par-three 11th at True Blue.
