Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Club, two top Myrtle Beach golf destinations, have unveiled their always anticipated Golftoberfest fall package, an offer that provides traveling players with maximum value during the Myrtle Beach area’s peak fall season. 

The package, which runs from October 1-31, is a three-night, four-round deal that allows golfers to play the pair of Mike Strantz designs in any combination they choose. Award-winning golf is complemented by villa accommodations that include 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom units at the True Blue Resort.

Groups that book early and travel Sunday through Wednesday, when ample tee times remain available, will relish the opportunity to play a pair of bucket-list courses at a value price. 

Two top Myrtle Beach golf courses

Golfers from across the nation flock to Pawleys Island to enjoy Strantz’ genius. Caledonia was the late architect’s first solo design, putting the man known as “The Maverick” on the fast track to stardom.

Caledonia, which plays through majestic live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, is ranked among America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses by Golf Digest and it doesn’t take players long to discover why. The course is impeccably conditioned and the Lowcountry scenery is unforgettable, but most importantly, the layout is a treat to play. 

A round at Caledonia reaches a crescendo on the par 4 18th, widely regarded as one of golf’s premier closing holes. The tee shot on the dogleg right demands accuracy as golfers look for the ideal angle for an approach that requires a carry over water to a green residing in the shadow of the clubhouse. It’s an unforgettable finish.

Located less than a mile away, True Blue offers a contrasting yet equally enjoyable experience. The fairways are among the area’s widest and often framed by sprawling waste bunkers that bring a native look to the layout. 

Equally appealing are the course’s greens complexes, which are among the area’s largest, allowing for a range of setup options few layouts in golf-rich South Carolina could hope to match. With five par 5s and five par 3s, the challenges at True Blue are varied throughout a memorable round. 

Even more impressive than the acclaim both courses have received from golf’s major magazines are the kudos they’ve earned from the game’s most important constituency, traveling players. 

“Hands down our favorite course in Myrtle,” gushed one 5-star Google reviewer about Caledonia. “Staff is always very kind and the course is always in fantastic shape. The clubhouse is great and that back patio gives the perfect view of one of the best finishing holes you’ll find. Great time with our group of 16.”

Caledonia and True Blue are two of America’s premier public courses and the Golftoberfest offer allows players to maximize the good times the Mike Strantz gems deliver.

Tepetonka Club, a new, 228-acre, private golf destination located two hours west of the Twin Cities, announced that Jim Nantz will collaborate with Tepetonka’s design firm OCM Golf on the creation of “The Prox,” the club’s short course.

In August, Nantz, OCM, and Doug Fredrikson will present the master plan for golf, lodging, and supper club to Tepetonka members in Minneapolis.

Founding memberships have been completed, with invitation-only memberships now open. Given the interest, members are clearly embracing the club’s innovative, fractional ownership model.

“’The Prox’ will be integrated into Tepetonka’s practice facility, and we’re looking forward to working with Jim on the design. His input and experience will be invaluable in what we’re creating,” OCM’s Mike Cocking said.
