South Myrtle Beach Golf is a southern treat for golf lovers. South Myrtle Beach is home to some of the Grand Strand's older yet extremely well-maintained courses. The courses have the rolling greens and impeccable designs you have come to expect of Myrtle Beach Golf courses, while being ensconced in a beautiful, natural setting. Playing these courses among giant oaks and Spanish moss is like taking a step back in time.
Some of the courses found along the South Strand are in Pawleys Island. Here you may visit the Caledonia Golf & Fish Club which was designed by Mike Strantz and was one of his first designs after honing his craft under the tutelage of Tom Fazio. Caledonia, one of the country's top rated courses, is set on a historic rice plantation and was designed with the goal in mind of moving as little dirt as possible.
Another wonderful course in Pawleys Island is the Heritage Club. The course is covered with over 600 acres of giant magnolias, 300-year-old oaks, fresh water lakes and marshes. 378 Heritage Dr, Pawleys Island, SC 29585 - 843-237-3424
