From Round One to The Championship, the excitement and fun that went along with the World Am Bracket Challenge was huge. Two of the finest properties a golfer can visit in the Myrtle Beach area, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and TPC Myrtle Beach are truly the cream of the Myrtle Beach crop. No matter who won in this matchup, the golfer will always win if picking between a round at one or the other.
TPC Myrtle Beach vs. Caledonia Recap
TPC Myrtle Beach is truly impressive from start to finish. This PGA Tour caliber property plays host to yearly prestigious events, and also regularly hosts traveling PGA Tour professionals in the area. TPC is everything you want from a golf course: high level customer service, top shelf amenities, and the best conditions you can ever hope for. With every type of golf hole you can play in the mix, the Tom Fazio design at TPC will test the best golfers in the world while also giving your average golfer the same feel and experience normally reserved for the Tour. The total golf package at TPC is an experience that every golfer will enjoy.
The road to the Championship for TPC Myrtle Beach was an exciting one. Early on TPC sent home strong challengers in Litchfield CC and Glen Dornoch, but Rounds 4 and 5 had much more daunting matchups ahead. Round 4 had TPC facing off against one of the top reviewed courses in the area, Grande Dunes Resort Club. After an impressive victory in Round 4 on Grande Dunes, TPC went toe to toe with Tidewater Golf Club. Arguably a Championship matchup by itself, the picture-perfect Tidewater took TPC to the very end in an awesome battle. TPC Myrtle Beach advanced onto the Championship match up with Caledonia by just 5 votes: the slimmest margin of victory in the bracket.
Golf heaven is really the only way to describe Caledonia Golf & Fish Club. Positioned on one of the most beautiful stretches of South Carolina property you could dream up, Caledonia blends a memorable golf course with incredible coastal Carolina landscapes to create a golfer’s “Field of Dreams”. Caledonia’s 18th Hole is legendary in Myrtle Beach golf lore because of its perfect challenge and guaranteed audience on the green. A bucket list golf experience, Caledonia is one-of-a-kind and unequaled from the live oaks to the pristine conditions.
Caledonia was tested throughout the journey to the Championship, edging out multiple top tier properties to get to the show. They earned it for certain. The most exciting match came in the Semifinal Round where Caledonia went head-to-head with another low-country favorite, True Blue Golf Club. True Blue is also Caledonia’s sister course, located conveniently just across the street, these two make one of the best 36-hole loops you can ever play.
In the End
In the Championship Round of voting Caledonia ran off to an early lead and never looked back. The Tour experience at TPC Myrtle Beach might have won against any other matchup, but the property and layout at Caledonia simply is unmatched.
It’s safe to say that many of the World Am courses are deserving of the title, but in the 2020 World Am Bracket Challenge, we only have one winner…
Congratulations to Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, your 2020 World Am Bracket Challenge Champion.
Furthermore, congratulations to Lee Varner Jr. You’ve won a complimentary foursome to play Caledonia on your next trip to Myrtle Beach! Enjoy and thank you all for playing.
