Three Great Holes
at Wachesaw Plantation East
Much of the appeal of the Waccamaw Golf Trail is the sheer variety of golf courses it offers. When looking for a great golf course or golfing experience, many factors come into play – including playability for all types of golfers, practice facilities and memorable holes, to name a few. Based on these criteria, one Trail course in particular stands out:. Wachesaw Plantation East, home to many strategic but playable golf holes.
The par-5 Hole No. 3 at Wachesaw East ranks as the hardest hole on the golf course. The tee shot is slightly downhill to a very tight fairway. Any miss left or right will end up in a native sandy area or trees. Your second or third shot will require a carry over a creek to a green that is protected by a deep bunker and lake. Your best bet? Play to the middle of the green and make a putt.
The 172-yard, par-3 12th Hole is the most picturesque par three on the course, but do not let the views distract you. Deep bunkers, wispy grass, and a lake will force golfers to hit a good shot and hope to find the putting surface. This tabletop green will reject any shot that comes up short, so distance control is key.
When you step to the tee on the par-4 18th Hole at Wachesaw East, you’re faced with a slight dogleg fairway. Surrounding this green is a footprint bunker with one lone pot bunker located just above the heel. This green has separate sections to it which will help feed your approach closer to the hole.
