consists of 128 members from across the state who are avid golfers with a high
familiarity with the SC's 350-plus courses. Narrowing it down to the top 30 is no
easy task, but the results are in. The Myrtle Beach Region placed 13 courses in
the top 25, more than any other region, and five (5) of those are on the
Waccamaw Golf Trail. They include Caledonia (3), True Blue (7), TPC Myrtle

architects Bruce Charlton and Jay Blasi-oversaw a 20-month renovation to the
200-acre course upgrading everything from the layout, greens, grasses, and
bunkers to the irrigation system and water features.

The renovations are a hit with golfers who often comment on the improved
playability and enjoyment factor of the course. In fact, those improvements led to
SentryWorld debuting at number 34 in Golf Digest's list of America's 100 Greatest
Public Golf Courses in the magazine's May issue. "We're extremely proud of what
we've created here at SentryWorld and are excited to have received this honor
from Golf Digest," said General Manager Mike James. "Everyone at SentryWorld is
committed to providing a premium golfing experience for our guests."

This isn't the first time SentryWorld has been recognized by the magazine. It won
Golf Digest's first-ever Best New Public award in 1984 and is currently ranked as
number five in their Best in State (Wisconsin) category. Other recent awards
