Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in Pawleys Island was ranked 29. The magazine calls the Mike Strantz design “a complete test of shotmaking.” It also points to the beauty of its antebellum clubhouse and the 18th hole that borders the old rice plantation and the Waccamaw River.

Coming in at 39, Dunes Golf & Beach Club is a classic 1948 Robert Trent Jones, Sr. creation. It's 13th hole is infamous for the dogleg around Lake Singleton. “Double bogeys and alligators await any sliced shot” the magazine points out.
