This edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand features Shan Coughlin and Bob Seganti in front of the beautiful 18th green at True Blue Golf Club in Pawleys Island South Carolina. Shan and Bob talk about how the sister courses, Caledonia and True Blue, have been outstanding this summer and what is to come in the future.
Both of these courses are very well known for their gorgeous scenery. The golf courses are one the only facilities on the Grand Strand that employ a horticulturist that works nonstop to make sure the facilities live up to all the expectations people have based on the many accolades they have received. There are several places throughout your golf round on each course to stop and just take in the view.
Take advantage of one of the many golf vacations offered to make your stay here more enjoyable. Back to school is in September and once the kids go back to working hard, you can do the opposite. Come, spend a long weekend or full week to relax and have fun playing golf. Two of these packages are called Golftober which takes place in October and in November there is November To Remember. As part of these vacation specials, you can come to the Myrtle Beach area, play golf, enjoy the beach, or just enjoy the city that has a variety of different things to do.
Both Caledonia Golf and Fish Club, as well as True Blue Golf Club have been in excellent playing condition ever since they opened back in 1994. People that have played these golf courses have raved. You can read some of the great reviews online. All the employees there take great pride in how they keep their course. The layout can make for an interesting and challenging yet fun day on the course. Some golfers have said that it is not just a plain course where you walk up and hit, then walk up and hit; you might have to put some thought into your next shot. It is not too tricky to where it is not fun. You will always have a great time playing at these facilities.
At True Blue, there is the Steve Dresser golf academy where you can sharpen you skills and work on your golf game with lessons from the man himself, Steve Dresser. Now, True Blue is a big and brawny course. It lies on a whopping 300 acres. Caledonia is more of a low country course. It’s a little bit smaller and narrower so you do have to be more precise with your tee shots. Overall it makes for a very fun 36 holes to play.
Golf is a very important part of life in this area but the water provides a lot of fun too. Bob has had quite the successful fishing season. You can find more details about the fish he has caught as well as details on him and the golf club website fishclub.com, by listening to the entire interview. Next time you make your way down to Myrtle Beach make sure to fit in a round at Caledonia or True Blue golf course. Or, try to play at both. You won’t regret it.
