COURSE SPOTLIGHT: WACHESAW PLANTATION EAST
Share this story!
The host of multiple LPGA Tour events is primed and ready to welcome you as part of your next Waccamaw Golf Trail golf getaway, offering a terrific blend of memorable holes and tremendous value for your vacation dollar.
Designer Clyde Johnston’s creation at Wachesaw Plantation East opened in 1996 with a splash, immediately hosting four consecutive LPGA Tour events that drew star-studded fields including the likes of Annika Sorenstam, Karrie Webb, Laura Davies and Grace Park, to name just a few.
What the pros discovered is what vacationing golfers have come to know in the two decades since: an exceptional playing experience highlighted by rolling fairways, strategically placed bunkers and scenic wetlands amid a beautiful setting historically rooted in a centuries-old rice plantation. Five sets of tees give you plenty of options for enjoying the game at the course and slope rating that’s right for your game. Large, undulating TifEagle greens roll true, and offer a challenging but fair test of your putting stroke.
Wachesaw Plantation East’s accolades include earning four stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play,” and in 2007 being honored by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association as its Golf Course of the Year.
Your pre-round routine (or even if you want to get in some extra post-round work) is enhanced by one of the most expansive practice areas you’ll find on the Grand Strand golf scene. Post-round options for relaxation include a scenic outdoor patio to enjoy your 19th Hole beverage of choice, or inside Wachesaw Plantation East’s new East Grill & Pub, featuring “Coastal Cuban” cuisine that keeps both golfers and regular diners coming back for more.
Spring rates at Wachesaw Plantation East start at under $60 as part of our two-round pricing. Be sure to include this course as part of your next Waccamaw Golf Trail experience!
