Caledonia, Dunes Club lead local links on Top 100 list

golf-caledoniaFour Myrtle Beach golf courses  courses have earned a spot on Golf Magazine’s list of the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play,” a biennial ranking of the nation’s best public courses that was unveiled in the September issue of the magazine.

Additionally, the Grand Strand dominated the magazine’s list of the “Best Courses Near You,” a ranking of public courses in each state.

“Myrtle Beach has as many great layouts as any destination in America, and Golf Magazine’s Top 100 You Can Play rankings are further affirmation of the quality of golf we offer,” said Bill Golden, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s president. “We were very proud of being voted Best Golf Destination by readers of USA Today, and we are equally happy to receive the critical acclaim of one of the game’s most respected media outlets.”

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, the area’s highest ranked course, was 27th on the “Top 100 You Can Play” list. The Dunes Golf & Beach Club was No. 42, followed by True Blue at No. 77 and the Love Course at Barefoot Resort at No. 85.

Seven of the 10 best public golf courses in the Palmetto State are located in Myrtle Beach and 13 of 20 overall, according to Golf Magazine. In a state renowned for its golf, Myrtle Beach’s dominance is a powerful testament to depth and quality of the area’s offerings.

Caledonia was ranked the third best public course in South Carolina, followed by Dunes Club (No. 4), True Blue (No. 6), Love Course (No. 7), Tidewater (No. 8), Fazio Course at Barefoot (No. 9), TPC Myrtle Beach (No. 10), Dye Course at Barefoot Resort (No. 13), Grande Dunes (No. 15), King’s North at Myrtle Beach National (No. 16), Heritage Club (No. 17), Pawleys Plantation (No. 19), and Heathland at Legends Resort (No. 20).

The Grand Strand was well represented in the North Carolina rankings as well, with four of the Tar Heel state’s top 20 layouts residing in Brunswick County.

On the North Carolina side of the border, Leopard’s Chase at Ocean Ridge Plantation was the ninth ranked course in the state, followed by No. 11 Tiger’s Eye at Ocean Ridge, No. 13 Rivers Edge, and No. 19 Oyster Bay.
