True Blue Golf Club is the site of this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand. November is a great time of year to play golf anywhere along the Grand Strand. The weather is nice. The golf courses are in great shape. The green fee rates are at a tremendous value. It is a win all the way around for golfers looking to get some golf in before the madness of the holiday season. That is why we took the time to get a fun round of golf in at Caledonia thanks to our good friend and Director of Golf Operations, Bob Seganti. Bob and his staff are some of the best people working in the golf industry anywhere. That is truth.
First of all when golfers pull up to the fantastic clubhouse they pass a beautiful fountain display on the way to the bag drop. From there, entering the clubhouse golfers are treated to a packed golf shop with all the golf essentials and the newest logo apparel at great prices. On the other side of the hall is the True Blue Grillroom. This outstanding bar and grill area has both indoor and outdoor seating available all day long. Head out to the back porch seating and watch golfers play the award winning 18th green. It is a treat both before and after a round of golf.
It is time to head to the first tee. True Blue is one of our favorite courses to play. The beauty of the surroundings and the challenge of the course are present from the first tee ball on the par 5 dog-leg left 1st hole to the water guarded approach shot on the amazing par 4 18th hole. Five sets of tees are available to allow golfers to choose the set that suites them best. True Blue will test every shot in the bag to be sure, but it is a very playable and golfer friendly layout. It incorporates native grasses and vegetation to maintain the character of the rice plantation the course was built on. There is no lack of scenery as golfers work their way around the course.
The fairways are open and provide generous landing areas. Don’t get too relaxed on the tee though. Being on the proper side of the fairway is important to provide a good angle for approach shots into well guarded green complexes. The large and receptive greens lead to many “green light specials” for hitting irons and going for the flag. Well placed approaches will lead to exciting birdie opportunities on the amazingly manicured putting surfaces. Take time and sink the putt!!
