Course designer Mike Stranz has really built a Lowcountry masterpiece, with fertile landscape of twisted live oaks and towering pines, tidal creeks and salt marshes as the backdrop for this magnificent course. True Blue has been recognized by Golf Digest as the “No. 1 Public Golf Course in the Myrtle Beach Area”, and made the list of “America’s Top 100 Public Courses.” The most recognized holes at True Blue are actually the first set of holes that includes two par 5’s and an island green par 3. Players that survive the first four at close to “their par” are setup for a good scoring day. So be ready at the first tee.
True Blue Golf Plantation has recently earned an overall rating of 8.8 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course conditions, scenic views, and course layout.

May be my new favorite course in MB. Tough but fair layout. Spectacular!

Liked all the waste bunkers, visually a challenging course.

What a great day. Staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful. We played in under 4 hours on a beautiful course like this, can't ask for much more than that! Solid 10 in my book, will be back.

Very impressive track. I was very satisfied with how great of a day we had in our group. We played on a great replay deal after Caledonia. Easily on par with the best courses in the area, loved how fast they were! Thank you

Our annual group of 20 players targeted True Blue for several years and 2013 marked our first experience in April. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement!! For the investment, the course was simply in very poor condition and this was during prime time late in the Spring. The majority of the traps were practically unplayable and no significant rain event occurred within the 48 hours prior to our play. The greens were firm but again almost unfair as no shot (even with a fair amount of spin) would hold and even the pro-shop attendant apologized for that issue and even suggested the pin placements needed a revisit (the 18th hold pin placement was in the rear third of the green and an approach simply rolled past the pin and into the water on the back side. No up front information was communicated with respect to the condition of the course and quite honestly True Blue is off the list permanently. Really too bad as the layout is beautiful but the quality of golf was well below the bar for a course with such a strong history. Very surprised that the staff would simply allow a group this size to depart without an effort to attract us back in the future for a more positive experience. Perhaps they simply don't need repeat business...

Highly overated. Instead of ##2 or ##3 ranking, I would place it in the ##20-25 ranking for all the Grand Strand courses. No real complaints, but just doesn't live up to the hype or cost. Again, coffee at $2.25 a cup is ludicrous. Several holes are too long for Sr. golfers.
Enrollment in junior golf programs has dwindled as start-up costs have become too much of a burden for families in this perplexing economy. That's where the new Junior Golf Exchange comes in to lend a hand to today's young golfers.
