I didn't care for Dye Club as well. Fazio and Love were much better and they were not "tricked out." You ought to try Prestwick and Legends - Moorland. The are both Dye courses that are much more playable for us golfers that are not professionals. :)
You will love Caledonia. It is easily in my top 20 golf courses I have played before. Most of the high end courses in Myrtle Beach that I have played are decent if not spectacular.I have only played two courses in the area that were high end courses that were a major disappointment (Dunes Club and TPC Myrtle).
 Sorry for the late reply. I like True Blue a little bit better.  Most people will say Caledonia.  Both courses have been ranked in the top 100 public courses over the years.  Caledonia is slightly more expensive.  Your assessment is pretty much spot on as far as design and course set up.  One of my golf friends described True Blue as having a little more risk vs reward design and Tobacco Road was a little more target golf oriented.  I played Pine Barrens in May and True...
 Sorry for the late reply. I had a full plate of golf of 10 rounds (9 regular rounds plus a scramble that week).  My last scheduled round was an afternoon tee time at Grande Dunes.  Unfortunately, I was exhausted and the heat index that day was 105 degrees. The staff at Grande Dunes was awesome.  I was upfront with them that I kind of overdid it for the week and they didn't hesitate to give me a rain check.  They definitely won me over in the customer service department.
Caledonia is awesome. I actually like True Blue even better. Caledonia has more scenic views, but True Blue is one of the most unique golf courses I have ever played. No two holes are alike. Generous off the tee with challenging greens/approach shot. Heritage and Legends - Moorland are outstanding as well if you haven't played them (Heritage and Legends - Moorland are fun for players that can at least break 90 on a regular basis. I can see how a high handicap would...
Yea...looking forward to the trip. Played them all except for Glen Dornoch, Prestwick, and Grande Dunes. The others are some of my favorite courses.
 Playing 9 rounds of golf in 6 days in Myrtle next week.  I'm sure the back will be sore by weeks end.  The key for me is to not do 36 holes more than 2 days in row. Playing:True BlueHeritageLegends - MoorlandLegends - HeathlandBarefoot - FazioGlen DornochCaledoniaPrestwickGrande Dunes

 It's amazing that someone that looks like a Telebubby (Dufner) can have a hot wife like Amanda Boyd. :)
 I was laughing at the concept of suggesting Willbrook after my previous experience.  In reality it is not that bad of a course.  I have been frustrated with some courses I have played in the past where the pace of play was too slow, however I have never been told by a marshall that they could "tell us to leave" for playing too fast at 3 1/2 hours!  In an era where pace of play is a huge issue you would think golf courses would welcome and encourage players to play in...
