True Blue Golf Plantation

5-star : simply the best - golf courses don’t get much better than this.
   True Blue Golf Plantation Est. 1998

Where2Golf says: 

True Blue Golf Plantation is the fourth golf course created by the late, great golf architect Mike Strantz. Next door at Caledonia Golf & Fishing Club is his first design. Stretching to 7,126 yards from the tips, this challenging layout sits on the site of the historic True Blue Plantation, a renowned 19th-century indigo and rice plantation.

Ranking with some of the best in South Carolina, this predominantly tree-lined "sandbelt" course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game. Large sandy waste areas line many of the fairways, along with woodland and occasionally good-sized ponds. Although absent on most holes, water makes is seriously present at the island-green par-3 3rd, U-shaped par-5 4th, and on the very testing closing trio. A must play if you are in the Myrtle Beach area.

Stay & Play at True Blue: luxury onsite condominiums and rental villas available; see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

In existence since the early-1700s, the True Blue plantation was originally owned by Anthony Shorey. His son Anthony Shorey Jr gave the property to his sister, Ann Shorey Pawley, who passed it to her son, George Pawley. The name True Blue is derived from the indigo plant which was grown on the plantation for use in making blue dye.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene.

Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
