Golf Digest Honors Dunes Club, Caledonia Among America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses for 2021-22; Barefoot-Dye, True Blue & TPC Myrtle Beach Among “Best in South Carolina”

Two of the Myrtle Beach area’s elite designs, The Dunes Golf & Beach Club and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, maintained their status as among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” for 2021-2022 as named by Golf Digest, which also honored these mainstays and The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort, True Blue Golf Club and TPC Myrtle Beach as among “The Best Golf Courses in South Carolina.”

Robert Trent Jones’ masterpiece at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club checks into the national ranking at No. 64, adding yet another chapter to its longstanding history of excellence as among the nation’s top public access venues. It is the former site of numerous PGA TOUR and senior tour championships, and to this day hosts a wide range of prominent USGA, women’s, amateur, national, collegiate and state events.

Mike Strantz’s critically acclaimed design at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club ranks 85th in the nation by Golf Digest, and was the first solo design in the short, brilliant career of “The Maverick.” Strantz’s architectural genius extends to Caledonia’s sister course in Pawleys Island at True Blue Golf Club. Along with The Dunes Club in maintaining its high stature in yet another national ranking, Caledonia exudes a Lowcountry beauty and charm that is unmatched along the Grand Strand golf scene.

The Dunes Club and Caledonia are in elite company in Golf Digest’s national ranking, joining Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pacific Dunes and the 2021 Ryder Cup host at Whistling Straits among the publication’s 2021-2022 nationwide honorees. Click here to see the complete list.

These two courses are also among five Grand Strand designs that hold prominent positioning in Golf Digest’s “Best in State” list for 2021-2022, with The Dunes Club ranking 13th in South Carolina and Caledonia coming in at No. 22. Joining them in Golf Digest’s statewide recognition are Barefoot-Dye (No. 29), True Blue (No. 30) and TPC Myrtle Beach (No. 33). These five Grand Strand courses join a prestigious list that highlights both private and public venues, including the three PGA TOUR 2021 event hosts at The Ocean Course at Kiawah (No. 1), Congaree Golf Club (No. 2) and Harbour Town Golf Links (No. 5).

The Ocean Course, Harbour Town, May River Golf Club (No. 10) and Osprey Point Golf Course (No. 34) join the Grand Strand’s five honorees as the only South Carolina public access venues included among the state’s top 35 designs.
