Sean “The Beast” Fister is one of the game’s most prodigious long hitters: a three-time World Long Drive Champion who has been known to demolish golf balls and send them into orbit, never to be seen again. He is also Myrtle Beach’s newest resident, on a mission to help area and visiting golfers add yardage and distance to their games. The Beast recently joined the instruction staff at the Dustin Johnson Golf School at TPC Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet, S.C., and is excited to be part of the Waccamaw Golf Trail community.

Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club is one of those courses you can play over and over again and never have the same shot twice; that’s what makes it such an enjoyable course. Jack would have it no other way.
Pawley’s Plantation is a championship, par 72 course that measures 7,031 yards from the back tees, yet the most memorable hole on the course is a mere 115 yards long. More on that later. From the back tees, the course carries a course rating of 75.7 and slope of 148. Most golfers will find that the White/Egret Tees (6,184/72.0/139) will give them as much golf course as they can handle. Five sets of tee boxes give golfers of all levels of ability the chance to enjoy this Lowcountry classic.
