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 backset 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 it’s last three including 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.
