I have only been fortunate enough to have played three of the ones on that list: Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, Grande Dunes and Pine Lakes. Caledonia, for what it’s worth, is on my list of top ten courses I’ve played — anywhere.
Still, I’m glad to know that two of the three I’ve played are in the top 20 courses list.
What I’ve got to do is figure out a way to get to Myrtle Beach in the late fall or early Spring, to take advantage of the area’s excellent weather.
