True Blue Golf Plantation

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1998

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.
