So the awesome people at Caledonia Golf Vacations offered up an all expense paid golf extravaganza to whoever won our Barstool Golf Classic in August. Needless to say it was well recieved by the winners because, well, who the hell wouldn’t want a free trip to Myrtle Beach to swing sticks at the best golf courses in the country? Exactly. Well if you didn’t win (which you didn’t), the fun doesn’t end there because they’re more to come in South Carolina – Which eventually may include a national Barstool golf tournament*.
Caledonia Golf Vacations is offering a package worth four rounds of golf at premiere courses, three nights in the Myrtle Beach area, and a free $100 bar tab for Stoolies. Sunshine, golf, booze. Sold!
Any Stoolie who books either the Golftoberfest or Spring Top 100 package through Caledonia Golf Vacations will receive a free $100 bar tab at True Blue Golf Club for his foursome. Both packages feature three nights accommodations and four rounds of golf at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue.
On any list of Myrtle Beach’s best (and most popular) golf courses, Caledonia and True Blue, a pair of Mike Strantz designed gems, are at or near the top. The sister courses are located within a ½-mile of each other and touting their place atop the Myrtle Beach golf market actually sells them short. Both layouts are regarded as among the best public courses in America. Caledonia is ranked 24th on Golf Magazine’s list of the Top 100 You Can Play, a ranking of America’s best public courses, and True Blue is 77th on the prestigious list. Caledonia, which is equal parts art and architecture, plays through a stunning piece of lowcountry land that was once home to a thriving rice plantation. The live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, the marshy waters of the Waccamaw Neck, and Strantz’s architectural brilliance combined to make Caledonia one of America’s premier public golf courses.The Caledonia experience is capped by the stunning 18th hole, which requires a forced carry over water to a green that rests in the shadow of an anti-bellum style clubhouse. A gallery typically gathers on the deck to watch (and occasionally bet like true degenerates) on who will hit the narrow green. It’s great scene and an idyllic end to a round.
Golf Channel’s travel guru Matt Ginella wrote of the course, “I could never imagine a trip to Myrtle and not heading down to Pawleys Island to play Caledonia Golf & Fish Club.” A round at True Blue, while completely different from a design perspective, is no less captivating. Everything about the 7,126-yard layout is big – the fairways, the greens and most of all, the fun. Strantz used waste bunkers, which frame many of the course’s fairways, to craft a layout that is among the area’s most visually stunning. Golf Magazine’s travel expert, Joe Passov, said of True Blue, “From the late, great Strantz’s sublime design to the helpful staff to the tip-top course conditions, this dramatic, watery layout remains a must play in Myrtle Beach.” More information on both courses and package pricing is available at www.FishClub.com. BE SURE TO MENTION YOU’RE A STOOLIE OR BARSTOOL TO GET YOUR FREE BAR TAB. Do it, you won’t regret it.
*Seriously, how great would a national Barstool Tournament be? If the interest is there, we’re gonna get it rolling.
