Rymer’s Reasons: Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

In this episode, PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com’s Charlie Rymer shows us how the Myrtle Beach golf scene features courses offering the ultimate experience from the moment you set foot on the property to the moment you depart. Mike Strantz’ Caledonia Golf & Fish Club epitomizes this sentiment, as Charlie shows us here.


Charlie Rymer:
One of my favorite things in Myrtle Beach is the entrance to Caledonia Golf & Fish Club. Let’s check it out.

An entrance like this sets the expectation that you’re going to have a very special experience. And believe me, Caledonia does not disappoint. This is a masterpiece of the late Mike Strantz. And sure it’s beautiful, but it’s also a lot of fun for players of all abilities.

We have a delicacy here. It’s the nectar of the south. We call it sweet tea, and it’s all about sipping. And believe me, there’s no better place to sip it than right here. The back porch at Caledonia. Look at this scene, 18th hole. You’ve got your buddies finishing right here. You can harass them if you need to. It doesn’t get any better than this.

With William, also known as “The Chowder Man.” He’s been here a long time and he’s a big part of the Caledonia experience because when you make the turn here, you get some free fish chowder, homemade by William. I was hoping you’d scoop me some.

Sure, I’ll be glad to.

Charlie Rymer:
And while we’re getting scoop some up, why don’t you tell me what the recipe is.

We got whiting fish, bacon bits, potatoes, onion, celery seeds, salt and pepper, a little Cajun seasoning, a little cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper. We got eight different seasonings in there.

Charlie Rymer:
My goodness. William, I’m going to give you a hug!

You come to Caledonia, you’ve got to see William the chowder man. And you’ve got to give this a shot. This good eating right here!

I’m Charlie Rymer in my hometown, Myrtle Beach, where we’ve got something for everybody!
