For years True Blue Golf Plantation was known as one of the hardest golf course in the Myrtle Beach area. Designer Mike Strantz was given few restrictions, and he chose to run with it, building one brute of a round of golf.

True Blue was marketed as "Golf's Heaven and Hell" in its first two years on the map. And though the course has been softened in recent years to make it more duffer friendly, True Blue retains much of its initial bite.

The first four and last four holes are some of the toughest in the areas, though in between there's a small respite from the beating True Blue is capable of handing even the seasoned golfer. Ultimately, True Blue is a solid option for mid to low handicappers on a Myrtle Beach golf trip.

    True Blue is one of those courses that, after you get a taste of it, you just want more. The course is one of only a handful of Mike Stranz courses; in fact, there are two here, Caledonia Golf and Fis ... more»

    The course is absolutely beatutiful. Some holes almost take your breath away. Though I read many reviews about how hard True Blue is, I found it to be very fair. There is always a shot to make. A go ... more»

    The course was great. A little long for the higher handicaps. Fast greens and a good mix of waste bunkers and water. One thing we noticed was poor judgement on putting American flags on all the pins. ... more»

    One of the best courses in Myrtle Beach. I play it every time I go to Myrtle Beach. I think it is a much better course than Caledonia but there is no private course feel at True Blue. There is not a b ... more»

    The second half of Mike Strantz's tour de force effort on Pawley's Island (Caledonia is the other), True Blue is an eye opener, jaw dropping exercise in golf art. You will either love it or hate it. I ... more»

    Gimmicky, "tricked up" course. Not enjoyable for an average player like me. GOLF COURSE staff was very rude and offensive and gave inconsistent instructions. There are plenty of nice cour ... more»
