Caledonia Golf and Fish Club may well be the preeminent golf course along the Grand Strand. Located on Pawleys Island on the site of a colonial rice plantation, it opened in 1994 to rave reviews from all the major golf publications.

It has all the historical credentials for plantation golf: A Scottish immigrant named Robert Nesbit bought the land in 1797 and named it Caledonia, the Roman name for Scotland. Built upon the site of an authentic colonial rice plantation, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club has captured world-wide recognition for its breathtaking aesthetic beauty as well as its exceptional design. Careful to preserve the natural surrounding, including hundreds of centuries old live oaks, architect Mike Strantz has risen to the top of the most wanted designer list with this, his first solo design.

Best golf experiance ever

yes, this course is expensive and I could not afford to play it on a regular basis, but it was the best golf experience of my life and worth every penny. Every hole is interesting and a challenge and the course conditions were great.

Wonderful and scenic course but expensive

We golfed here in 2010 and were so impressed that we needed to golf it again this season. The $150 fees were expensive, but we deemed it worth it since it was so beautifully laid out and maintained. In 2010 we had ample time to play, but moved along well. In 2013 the tee times were spaced much closer together and we waited on each hole. To the credit of the rangers, they tried to move slower players along but the round was still in excess of 5 hours. We're glad we went back, but it is not worth $150 (or more) when the play is this slow. But in the end it is one of the more beautiful courses we have played around the country.

Very nice, but just once, pricey

Caledonia is a course that everyone should play once. It lives up to the hype. But given the calibre and price of other courses in Myrtle, I wouldn't pay $150+ more than once. That's a bit much when you can play great courses for under $100 in the area.
