About Wachesaw East Golf Club (Murrells Inlet, SC)

With rolling fairways, strategically placed bunkers and traditional mounding, it’s easy to see the Scottish influences in the Clyde Johnson designed Wachesaw East Golf Course.

Built on an old rice plantation, the course measures 6,933 yards from the back set of its five tees and has hosted a number of LPGA tournaments. A scenic course with tree-lined fairways, wetlands and freshwater ponds and lakes, it’s been selected as a Myrtle Beach course of the year and received accolades as one of the country’s best courses for customer service.

The course starts with two doglegs, the first requiring a marsh carry from the tees and then an approach shot over an army of bunkers to the green. Its third hole is perhaps its most interesting, a par 5 with a marsh carry required about 150 yards back from the green and a ridge halfway in to deny any bump and run attempts. Another hole of note, the 380-yard par-4 No. 6 dubbed the “Narrow” features the skinniest of fairways with sharp drop-offs on either side. The course’s most demanding holes are likely its last three including the signature No. 18. Facing water off the tee, the fairway essentially stops 100 yards short of the green with plenty of bunkers around the green. Golfers can take advantage of a clubhouse with locker rooms and full practice facility.

It is a great course to play and visually enjoy. Every golf hole is different and can be played from a variety of tees. Older golfers like me will find it very fair.

It all starts at the bag drop. Nice courteous people to take your bag out they ask who's driving and point you to the pro shop. Once inside the pro shop nice displays of merchandise that were reasonably priced. Usually pro shops are very high in their pricing. There were two gentlemen in the pro shop to assist you both greeted me when I walked in and asked me my name and my groups tee time. They took care of me gave me a starting ticket and showed me the nice lounge restaurant across the hallway . They also had complementary range balls for me while our group waited the play . The starter explained everything we need to know about the course which was very helpful and off we went. The course was in great shape for this time of year I especially like the greens they were true and because of the weather they were not as fast as they normally would've been. A course ambassador went by periodically and asked how we were doing . All in all the day was an enjoyable experience. After golf we went into the lounge and had lunch. This is course is definitely on our list when we come back.
