On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we take a look at playing one of our the most popular golf courses in the entire east coast. Caledonia Golf & Fish Club annually is ranked among the Top 100 Courses in America by Golf Digest as well as many other golf publications. Naturally that makes it a must play on every golfers agenda when they travel to Myrtle Beach. We have highlighted the history of the property that it is built on as well as all of the amazing amenities golfers enjoy during their visit. Today we want to talk about playing the golf course itself.
We always look at courses from an amateur perspective. After all, that is what we are. So we want to take a look at the course and the general approach to take when playing Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in hopes that it will help golfers planning on playing it in the near future. We are by no means experts, but we want to pass course knowledge along.First of all, Caledonia is not a long golf course. The regular tees play about 6,000 yards give or take. The emphasis is on placement off the tee and less on distance. If golfers can get the ball into decent position with the driver it will set up solid chances at approach shots. If the tee shots get wayward then Caledonia can jump up and bite golfers pretty quickly.
The real challenge at Caledonia is the green complexes so the approach shots are very important if golfers want to post a good score. Hitting iron shots to the proper side of the green is important in any round of golf but at Caledonia, we certainly recommend paying close attention to that detail. Golfers that end up on the wrong side of the pin too many times will not find themselves with many easy putts.
The bunkers and putting surfaces at Caledonia are fantastic to say the least. The plush, white sand traps that protect the finely groomed greens make for a fun yet challenging experience. Golfers need to bring their short game when the come to Caledonia if they want a happy scorecard at the end of the round. The perfect greens will provide an amazing putting experience.
