Golf Course Information

About Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

Since opening to the public in January 1994, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club has rapidly gained a reputation as one of the premier courses in America. It is the first solo design of late, great golf course architect Mike Strantz. Strantz approached his assignments in a unique way—as an artist, rather than an engineer. His exceptionally creative eye is reflected in the way he sculpted Caledonia’s 18 holes, with large, creative greens guarded at times by ponds, streams and imposing bunkers. The same sort of majestic live oaks that overhang the entryway into Caledonia similarly frames many of the shots at Caledonia, giving the course a rustic feel. Thousands of annual and semiannual flowers bloom every year throughout the property, further adding to the beauty of the experience. No houses encumber the interior of the property—the joy of playing golf is left alone by the worry of hitting a ball into someone’s backyard.

About True Blue Golf Club

True Blue Golf Club, Mike Strantz’s fourth signature golf course, opened to rave reviews in February 1998. Strantz also designed the award-winning Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, which opened in 1994, on plantation land adjacent to True Blue. For his efforts at True Blue and Caledonia, Strantz was named “Architect of the Year” by Golf World in 1998. Strantz crafted True Blue to echo many of the characteristics of Pine Valley and Pinehurst #2, with an emphasis on maintaining a natural feel to the course.

The par-72 course can stretch to 7,126 and sits on the site of historic True Blue Plantation, a famed 19th-century indigo, and rice plantation. Emphasizing the natural beauty of the area, it incorporates native grasses and vegetation to maintain much of the character of the property.

2016 Scramble City Tour Champions - Pitt6 (Pittsburgh)

2017 will mark the 3rd year of Nextgengolf City Tour Championship. In 2016, 136 players competed looking for a chance to crown themselves the national champions. In 2016, the Pitt6 took home the scramble title and Team GolfMatchApp took home the best ball title.

The National Championship was formed in 2014 when an age-old rivalry between Boston and New York was held in a Ryder Cup format on September 21, 2014. New York edged out Boston 16 1/2 to 15 1/2 to win the 2014 Championship. After the 2014 season, Nextgengolf expanded Nationwide and ran the 2015 City Tour Championship at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Chicago and the 2016 championship at Seaview Golf Club in Atlantic City.
