Opened early '98, True Blue skyrocketed to the top of every "Best New" award, being named the"Fourth Best New Public Upscale Course" in the country by Golf Digest, and as one of the "Top 10 New Courses In America" by The Golfer Magazine as well as being hailed as the "7th Best Course in South Carolina" and the #1 Course in Myrtle Beach by Golf Digest. Designed by America's most talked-about new architect, Mike Strantz, True Blue is very demanding yet, ruggedly beautiful.
Built upon the site of an old indigo and rice plantation, True Blue features uncommon natural elevations and naturally rugged terrain. The rough, sandy areas have been retained and provide striking contrast to the immaculate greens, tees and fairways. The elevations also make True Blue unique. On the Par 3, 14th, the tee box is nearly fifty feet above the green which is artfully placed between the perils of a huge waste area and a disastrous "pot" bunker. While hitting down to a green on a Par 3 in the Myrtle Beach area, is very unique, it is the raw beauty of this hole that sets it apart.
