Caledonia Golf & Fish Club
The late Mike Strantz was an artist with a bulldozer and at Caledonia, he created a layout worthy of a museum exhibit. Gnarled live oaks frame the rippled fairways and the course winds along the Waccamaw River for much of its journey. Caledonia measures just 6,526 yards from the tips, but they’re replete with wetlands, vast waste bunkers and contoured greens, which explains the sturdy slope of 140. The superb closer is a 383-yard, par-4 that edges the river and old rice fields, with a green fronted by water and backdropped by the Antebellum-style clubhouse.
