Well... so far we've only been able to play 3 local courses... and I wonder why we'd even want to try any others! Here's a quick run-down of all threes:
1. True Blue - Beautifully rugged with LARGE drive-thru waste bunkers. Excellent course layout and views. If I had one complaint it's the fairways may be a little thin for boys from the midwest that are used to thick zoysia grass.
2. Caledonia - Located right behind True Blue and on the river. Absolutely gorgeous and the FLAGSHIP course for South Carolina Golf. 100+ year old oaks draped with Spanish moss. If you have to choose just one course to play - this is it. Almost every single hole is a postcard and you really don't see one hole from the other so you feel like you're playing the only hole on the course. Foliage is gorgeous - which is why this is rated #1 public course for women and Top 100 in the country.
3. Heritage - This is the sleeper of the bunch and only 1 mile South of True Blue & Caledonia. Very similar to Caledonia but with more wildlife and less flowers. I HIGHLY recommend playing this course if you have the opportunity. This course has the large, 100 year old oaks as well, but even MORE history. The original plantation owners cemetary is just off one tee-box and the slave cemetary off another. Very historic and beautiful course.
