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.

This course was just an OK track. Grass in the fairways was a little sparse for our groups' liking and the greens really putt like 'old days' bermuda grass. It's golf but there are quite a few better courses out there in the Myrtle Beach area.

Staff were not as welcoming as any other group of customer contact people. No signage designating no carts by driving range. People in our party were told no carts at the range. While mocking that person we were then mocked for not moving a cart which was not our as our bags were next to us on the range. Same issue with lack of grass in fairways. Greens did roll a little faster.

Wachesaw East Golf C...

Wachesaw East Golf Club is a stand out golf course in the Southern Strand of golf courses with a Links style layout that will test your golfing skills for sure. Their whole staff is friendly, accommodating and courteous from the time you drop off your bags, to the end of play and while you are having a cocktail inside or on their expansive outdoor patio overlooking the practice area. Each hole has numerous Tee Boxes to hit from for all level of players, and marked along the hole for easy yardage calculation for your next shot. You will sure test your abilities with the numerous bunkers and water hazards throughout the course. The greens are in excellent shape and will challenge you with their speed. Wachesaw East has a great practice facility that includes two putting greens, chipping areas and a large driving range.This course is fantastic and is definitely a must play in the Southern Strand of courses, can't wait to play it again!

Wachesaw East is a phenomenal course, we have been playing here since 2000. It has always been part of our golf package. The fairways are always in excellent condition as well as the challenging greens. The staff is excellent, always going above and beyond to insure a great experience. Whether you're a scratch golfer or a fair golfer, Wachesaw needs to be a priority on your play list. They also have a great restaurant and bar to relax with your mates.

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.
