bring ur gun if ur staying on the strip, its like a warzone down there

Good choices. Dunes is a nice upgrade over True Blue. Heritage is tough over the last few years as they get a ton of play and rounds can be excruciatingly slow. It's one of the best courses in MB thou

Like the other Legends courses, you also get breakfast, lunch, and 2 drink coupons for that price as well - plus the food is actually quite good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits/gravy usually for break

Cal is a must play. True Blue is next door and will have a replay rate if you want to play 36 holes one day.

 

The Dunes is private, so you will have to go through a MB golf packager. It's a traditional style.

 

True Blue is a modern Mike Stranz design, which is somewhat like a Pete Dye course.

 

In the summer, ask about green aeration in MB.

 

Some other top courses are: Barefoot, Tidewater, Kings North, Grande Dunes, TPC, Heritage.

Dunes Club is closed in June for non members so you can scratch that one. We are going next week to play Caledonia, True Blue, King’s North, Tidewater and The Dye Club. Grand Dunes and TPC would have been next on our list if we were staying for another day. In June nearly every course is aerating so just call in advance and that will help you narrow your choices down.

I suggest True Blue, TPC, Prestwick, Kings North and Tidewater. Then you have Barefoot Dye, Grand Dunes and Long Bay. You wont go wrong with these options.

Pine Lakes is a nice course. Played it before the redesign and after. After is much better. Not a Strantz fan so no endorsement here for either of those courses. Good to excellent golf courses can be had in MB for way less cost then those two. Pine Lakes is one of them. If you get another opportunity, try Prestwick. You will like that one also and it is a Pete Dye and son design.

Like the other Legends courses, you also get breakfast, lunch, and 2 drink coupons for that price as well - plus the food is actually quite good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits/gravy usually for breakfast and a full menu of sandwiches, burgers, etc for lunch. It's a steal.

The only Strantz courses that I haven't played are Tot Hill in NC and the one next to Pebble in Carmel, CA. Not a fan. Ever hear the saying "all flash, no cash". To me, that is Strantz. Tot Hill has boulders on the course. Not my cup of tea. The ones in MB are way overpriced for the product they deliver. A ton of people disagree, Strantz was named designer of the year by either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine some years ago, I forget.

Hotels, stores and attractions are open. Restaurants are operating with outside dining and reduced seating inside. Courses are open and busy. Most courses operated with one player to a cart, no bunker rakes, pool noodles in the cup. Recently courses are returning to 2 players per cart. Unfortunately there has been a significant increase in covid cases in both Horry County and all South Carolina. Lots of folks aren't paying much attention to masks and social distancing suggestions. Hopefully things will stabalize.

Playing Caledonia for first time in a couple of weeks with the first tee off I believe. So are you suggesting that if I want to hit balls and warm up, I should first drive to True Blue which I believe is near bye use there range then go over to Caledonia and check in?

 

Is it about a 5 or 10 minute drive from True Blue to Caledonia?

Caledonia and True Blue are sister courses. Cal only has a chipping area and putting green, not enough space for a range.

If you turn at the Cal/TB sign on 17, you will pass by True Blue. If you must hit balls, stop in TB and show you have a Cal tee time.

I think you can do it with the TB bag drop, since they usually have bags of balls at the bag drop. It takes extra time, but that is how you can

hit balls before Cal. It's then about 4-5 minutes to Cal. The Cal entrance is slow going, but attractive.

 

Since they are sister courses, you can get a good replay rate on either Cal or TB, 9 or 18 holes. Ask in the pro shop at Cal for either course.

I did that both time i played Cal recently, stop at TB guys at bag drop asked where i was playing told them and got a bag of balls. Then picked up and drove over to TB, bag drop guys even called over for me both times to let them know i am here hitting balls. So when i arrived they were expecting me, thought it was a nice touch. Then i did my short game there and was ready to play at CAL.
