The September issue of Golf Magazine just hit the stands which includes there “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list. Golf Magazine’s biennial list of America’s “Top 100 You Can Play,” is a ranking of the best public-access courses in America. The Love Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf was once again ranked, moving up one spot to #85.
“When Barefoot initially opened its fairways, some skeptics wondered if Davis Love III would be capable of crafting a course that was equal to more highly regarded architects Pete Dye, Tom Fazio and Greg Norman, who also designed courses at Barefoot. Turns out Love bettered most of America with his work at Barefoot. With its generous landing areas, creative layout, and Donald Ross-inspired greens complexes, the Love Course is among the area’s most popular and playable layouts. The faux ruins of an old plantation home anchor the fourth through sixth holes and provide the take home memories for many players” – Chris King, Editor for Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday
Three other area golf courses were herald with the distinction of being named in the biennial “Top 100” list. Caledonia Golf & Fish Club (#27), The Dunes Club (#47) and True Blue (#77) a newcomer to the list. Caledonia is a Mike Strantz design, routed along a stunning piece of property. Strantz carved a masterpiece between soaring live oak trees draped in Spanish moss and alligator-filled, lowcountry water that used to feed thriving rice plantations. Caledonia’s finishing hole is the area’s most recognizable. The 18th plays over water to a green that rests in the shadow of an antebellum style clubhouse, where golfers gather to watch fellow players finish. The Dunes Club is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. masterpiece. If you are a fan of classic architecture, smooth, fast greens, and a daunting challenge, The Dunes Club is a must play. The layout recently hosted the 2014 PGA Professional National Championship. True Blue, also a Strantz design and located adjacent to Caledonia, is a newcomer to the list. Golf Magazine said of True Blue, “Hole to hole, the variety is astounding. The course is mostly open, with beauty and menace mingling with lakes, marshland and plenty of scrub-filled natural sandy areas … Rarely has golf architecture had a shaper as artful as Strantz. The full measure of his formidable skill is on display at True Blue.”
