Golfweek Ranks Two Myrtle Beach Golf Courses Among Top 100 Resort Courses

12/02/2013


Caledonia Golf & Fish Club (No. 25) and Dunes Golf & Beach Club (No. 33) are ranked among the magazine’s Top 100 Resort Courses. For both layouts, it’s another in a long list of honors.

Caledonia is lowcountry golf at its finest. From the entrance - a half-mile trip through an alley of oak trees that can make a case for being at least the equal of Augusta National - to the 18th hole, which is one of the strongest anywhere, Caledonia is a treat.

Mike Strantz’s first solo design, Caledonia has been on the national radar since it opened in 1994. Squeezed into 100 acres of land, the course is equal parts art and architecture.

Visually the countless live oak trees that populate the property and the lowcountry ambiance define the course. Caledonia is a stunning design.

The Dunes Club is the most storied course on the Myrtle Beach golf scene. The Robert Trent Jones Sr. design has hosted the U.S. Women’s Open, the finals of the PGA Tour’s Q-School, and six Senior Tour Championships. The venerable layout will add to its list of high profile events by hosting the 2014 PGA National Club Professional Championship.

Alligator Alley, as the 11th through 13th holes are known, is the Dunes Club’s most renowned stretch, culminating with “Waterloo,” the par 5 13th hole that plays around Lake Singleton (home of many large reptiles).

The Dunes Club is steeped in tradition and led the Myrtle Beach golf community into the national spotlight.

Golfweek also included Barefoot Resort’s Fazio and Love courses and the Grande Dunes Resort Course among the “Next 100,” bringing the total of Myrtle Beach golf courses honored to five. - See more at: http://myrtlebeachgolf.golfholiday.com/blog/myrtle-beach-golf-news/golfweek-ranks-two-myrtle-beach-golf-courses-among-top-100-resort-courses#sthash.qTUs90vq.dpuf
