No Golf Blues This Winter: Caledonia & True Blue Unveil Value-Laden Package

Stay-and-Play Special at Two of America’s Top 100 Public Courses Starts at $249

(Pawleys Island, S.C.) - Winter golf has never been more appealing. Allowing golfers to take advantage of South Carolina’s subtropical climate, Caledonia Golf Vacations – the golf travel provider of True Blue Golf Club and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club – has unveiled its Winter Golf Getaway package.

The package costs $249 per person and features three rounds of golf at Caledonia and True Blue, two of America’s top 100 public courses, and two nights accommodations at True Blue golf villas.

The deal begins on December 1 and will run through January 31, 2016. For an additional $90 per day, players can add additional nights and rounds to their trip.

“There isn’t a golf package in America that offers a greater combination of quality and value than the Winter Golf Getaway deal,” said Bob Seganti, Director of Golf Operations at Caledonia and True Blue. “We enjoy temperate weather in December and January, giving our friends from up North an opportunity to escape the cold and play Caledonia and True Blue.”

Caledonia is ranked 24th on Golf Magazine’s list of the Top 100 You Can Play, a ranking of America’s best public courses, and True Blue is 77th on the prestigious list. Both courses are Mike Strantz designs that offer golfers distinct, yet equally dramatic and memorable experiences.

Caledonia, which is equal parts art and architecture, plays through a stunning piece of lowcountry land that was once home to a thriving rice plantation. The live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, the marshy waters of the Waccamaw Neck, and Strantz’s architectural brilliance combined to make Caledonia one of America’s premier public golf experiences.

Golf Channel’s travel guru Matt Ginella wrote of the course, “I could never imagine a trip to Myrtle and not heading down to Pawleys Island to play Caledonia Golf & Fish Club.”

A round at True Blue, while completely different from a design perspective, is no less captivating. Everything about the 7,126-yard layout is big – the fairways, the greens and most of all, the fun.

Strantz used waste bunkers, which frame many of the course’s fairways, to craft a layout that is among the area’s most visually stunning.

Golf Magazine’s travel expert, Joe Passov, said of True Blue, “From the late, great Strantz's sublime design to the helpful staff to the tip-top course conditions, this dramatic, watery layout remains a must play in Myrtle Beach.”
