Anytime we get to talk about True Blue Golf Club here on Tee It Up Grand Strand it is a good day. It is a fantastic track located in beautiful Pawley’s Island, South Carolina just minutes south of Myrtle Beach International Airport. Situated in a former rice plantation, True Blue is an absolute must play when golfers visit the Myrtle Beach area. It is a golfers golf course.
Ranked in Golf Magazin’s “2014 Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list, True Blue is a fun layout that any golfer can play and enjoy, but they better bring their A-game if they want to post a score. The rolling fairways and natural grasses and vegetation found all along the course provides beautiful scenery as well as a challenge to navigate.
The green complexes at True Blue are as good as they get. Hitting the green in regulation is not always something to be excited about. The large, undulating greens put a premium on the approach shots. The putting surfaces are smooth and fast at all times. If golfers find themselves on the wrong side of a “dead elephant” in the green it makes for a very tough situation to get a 2-putt for par. But man it is fun!
Mike Strantz did an amazing job when he designed True Blue. It opened in February of 1998. He took some of the characteristics of Pinehurst No.2 when he was laying out True Blue. The par 72 courses reached a whopping 7,126 yards from the Championship tees. But as we stated before it is most certainly a course that can be enjoyed by golfers of all ages and ability levels.
Be sure to get to the course we in advance of your tee time in order to take advantage of all the amenities offered at True Blue. First of all the clubhouse is fantastic. It has a large golf shop full over everything a golfer could want. The bar and grill area is great too. Most important to a good round is using the 18-acre practice facility. Be sure to use the massive driving range and then head over to the short game area to work on the chip shots and get a feel for the greens on the top-shelf practice putting green too.
