Wachesaw Plantation East

Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Club represents the best of a traditional Scottish Design golf course. Architect Clyde Johnston carved this course out of a former rice plantation in Murrells Inlet. With rolling mounds and tree-lined fairways, Wachesaw East can be visually challenging. Good golf shots are typically rewarded and especially ones landing on the receptive, quick and true rolling greens.

Known for hosting four LPGA Tour events, Wachesaw East provides a fantastic value for golfers wanting to play a well-maintained course for a few bucks less. Named 2007 Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association, Wachesaw East remains a frequent favorite place to play by Myrtle Beach locals.

I hadn't played this course in years. Decided to try it again. I like the layout, and I found the course to be pretty good shape. Not sure if fairways had been cut so they were a bit slow, not much roll. Sandtraps could use a bit more sand and needed to be raked. Also, the greens putted well, but they had been topdressed and had lots of sand. I would play here again, but from past experience, I would not play this course if there had been lots of rain in the area since it can be a "wet" course.

Glad to see that this course is back in good shape after the flood damage last year. The staff was great as well. Greens were great, This is a nice layout which does require accuracy off the tees. We will definitely be back.
by J W - 02/18/2017
From the bag drop to the 18 th green a super day! Course was in Great shape. Impressed with how friendly and professional the staff was. Looking forward to a return round soon!
by Reid - 09/13/2016
Course in good shape. Staff has done a great job in getting the course back in shape
by Reid - 09/13/2016
The course is in good condition and improving each week. The staff has done a great job in getting the course back in shape.

We played that course many times. It was sure value until yesterday. The majority of the greens are in really bad condition. Because of it they gave us a round free witch is fair. I would suggest not to play this course right now. Wait for the habitual course conditions.It's usually a very Nice course.
by Ron - 04/01/2016
This course is typically in descent shape and a nice layout. However,at present the greens are in very bad condition and in my opinion the course shouldn't even be open until they get this current problem fixed. At very least they should be notifying patrons of the problem when they call in & they should be charging them a reduced rate. I fully realize what a financial burden this might cause but it is totally unfair to pass that burden on to unsuspecting golfers.
by LY - 03/21/2016
This is normally a nice course BUT until the greens are back in shape, it is a bit discouraging. The majority of greens are like putting on cardboard. We understand that the weather has been an issue but that should be told or the customer before the tee time is made.
by Timothy - 02/09/2016
I like the layout of the course and the staff is friendly but that's about the only good thing that can be said at this point in time. TOO MUCH RAIN and not enough drainage. Carts on path on some holes and should have had the carts on paths on every hole. The fairways are thin and about 1/3 of the greens have NO grass. They are painted and almost unplayable. I would go anywhere before I go back to Wachesaw because putting is a big part of the game. Sorry that I have to give them a bad review but I would avoid this course until the greens recover.
by Chris - 09/11/2015
An absolutely beautiful course with an outstanding staff. Fairways are in excellent condition and greens are like velvet. A challenging yet very rewarding course that everyone should play at least once if not multiple times. The grill is excellent for a 19th hole as well. Very good fare with great drink prices! I give it two thumbs up and five stars!
by Brent - 08/04/2015
First time to play the course and really no map on the scorecard, so a couple holes had water dangers that I was not aware of. Overall very playable course. Course was in good shape.
by Stephen (Murrells Inlet, SC) - 08/02/2015
Greens were in good shape. Fairways are decent. Course is relatively tight and tough. Plan on coming back.
by Bruce (Salisbury, NC) - 07/23/2015
The course was in great condition. Will come back and play again.
by Jim (Slidell, LA) - 06/24/2015
Average golfer friendly, always in great condition.
by James (Columbia, SC) - 05/06/2015
Staff was good, but just seemed to be going through the motions, nothing above average. Course is tighter than most others in the area. Greens are nice and fairly flat.
by Steven (Foxfire Village, NC) - 04/30/2015
Excellent staff. Friendly, courteous and helpful.
by Ken - 04/30/2015
Treated well by everyone. Course in good shape for the season.
by Louis - 03/22/2015
Played with a foursome. Each of stated the greens were in avg. to above avg because of a lot of the greens had spots of sparse grass along the perimeter and other areas. The dabs of patchy grass on the greens did not seem to interfere with the roll of the golf ball. Overall-We all enjoyed every aspect of the course and will most definitely return to play again.
by Bradly (Manor, PA) - 03/11/2015
Great course and staff. Highly recommend! Greens were in great shape for March. More fairway grass than other 3 courses played this week.
by Jim (Greenville, NC) - 11/13/2014
by Brad (Chocowinity, NC) - 11/13/2014
Challenging ...course layout ...variety of terrain.
by Linda (Knoxville, TN) - 11/13/2014
Better than average.
by Doyle (Murrells Inlet, SC) - 10/30/2014
I'm a local who lives in the area. First time playing the course and everything was great. Only draw back was the ranger was never seen so the group in front was extremely slow and took multiple tee shots.
by Sharon (Orilla, ON) - 10/24/2014
The scenery is beautiful.
by Anthony (Murrells Inlet, SC) - 10/19/2014
I am a local, with membership at Indian Wells. With my brother-in-law from out of state, played your course this week. We found the course in excellent shape (comp to the Super.) the personnel made us feel like we were members. I can't say enough about your operation at Wachesaw East. My brother-in-law is going home, very impressed with the whole experience. Thank You.

by Janet (Orlando, FL) - 10/11/2014
Some of the fairways are very narrow in spots especially for golfers who are long off the tee. The greens are very large,fast and in excellent condition.
by Michael (Mount Vernon, NY) - 09/26/2014
The course was in good condition.
by Donald and Kathie (Ocala, FL) - 09/17/2014
Fairways plugged after the rain.
by James (Columbus, OH) - 09/15/2014
Everyone was very nice and helpful. Always have a good time at this course. Would recommend to everyone; very player-friendly.
by Robert (Dayton, OH) - 08/20/2014
Course personnel were great. I had made a tee time online for the wrong day, but they figured it out and fixed it quickly. Much appreciated!
by Jim - 08/08/2014
We arrived 30 minutes early for our t time and were greeted by very friendly staff at the bag drop.. We went to check in but were told the computer t sheet is down so we cannot sign in come back in 15 minutes That was not a good greeting. We went to putt on the practice green which was large in great condition and very indicitive of the green speeds we saw on most holes. We got to t off 8 minutes prior to scheduled and flew through the round in less than 4 hours. We did not have to wait on any hole any shot. The fairways were very wet, every t shot in the fairway plugged. Guess thats expected with all the recent rain. T boxes were in good shape but chewed up a bit by golfers who did not fix their mishits. For the most part greens were in good shape in general but a couple were still rough from what appeared to be recent ariation. We never saw a ranger on the course although we flew through. But would have liked to see a beverage cart at least once. We did not use the grill. All in all a real good experince would love to play again when conditions are dryer.
by Richard (Irmo, SC) - 08/04/2014
We enjoy playing this course very much. The staff is always helpful and the course is always in good condition.
by Harrison - 07/24/2014
Played at Wachesaw East with 3 friends. We had a fun day and enjoyed ourselves. Clubhouse and bar/grill have been remodeled and are very nice. Bag drop guys and Clubhouse staff are friendly and helpful. There is a great practice range area and practice putting area - convenient to use prior to playing. Course is a nice layout - greens and fairways are in great shape. We had lunch in bar/grill after our round - really good food and drinks at reasonable prices. We had a great day and really enjoyed ourselves
by George (Charlotte, NC) - 06/10/2014
Did not see ranger until 8th green. He did not stop to offer to get our twosome through the foursome in front. Lucky the foursome's pace of play was very good.
by James (Oshawa, ON) - 06/05/2014
Need GPS on carts
by John (Stanardsville, VA) - 06/05/2014
Nothing unique - fine course, excellent conditions
by Myron (Saint Augustine, FL) - 06/02/2014
Fairways and greens are in great shape. Would like to see areas along the roughs in better shape. Staff very friendly.
by George (Blackwood, NJ) - 06/02/2014
Really enjoyed our vacation in Myrtle Beach

Golf course in great shape. staff, restaurant and bar first class.
by William (Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC) - 04/17/2014
Great golfing day. All staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. They made the day very enjoyable for my wife, daughter, mother and myself. Will return in future.
by Ray - 11/21/2013
Spectacular conditions, fastest greens in MB. Fun layout with a nice mix of difficulty and beauty. Definately want to play again.
by David (Advance, NC) - 10/29/2013
Great course. Tee boxes I guess had been just reseeded because they were very high. Play could have been faster. Took almost 5 hours to play.
by Ron - 10/07/2013
Well, I have a new favorite course in MB. Previously, it was Glen Dornoch. Now, it's Wachesaw East. I love the course and the staff were great. The course is challenging even though I had to play more Senior tees than I would have liked. My knee and shoulder dictated that. The course design was much better than the other course I played, Shaftsbury Glen. If the LPGA played it a couple of times it must have been good, right? Right! After giving golf lessons all summer, it was a pleasure to get to play by myself last Tuesday afternoon. I could try a couple of shots along the way, not push anyone, and not get in the way. I even spent 2-3 hours practicing chip and pitch shots out of Bermuda rough and putting on Bermuda greens Friday afternoon as a winddown to the week.
by Ken - 10/03/2013
I was down there a few weeks ago and just loved it. During the time, I was struggling with my game so I took a lesson with the teaching professional, Bill Gunderman, and it was the best lesson I ever had. The course was in great shape. I really enjoyed the day at Wachesaw Plantation East. Can't wait for next year.
by John (Cary, NC) - 09/30/2013
Wonderful place to play golf. I will be back.
by Alice - 09/30/2013
I was with a group of 36 ladies that played Wachesaw East on 9/25/13. It is an excellent course, in great shape and the course staff was most helpful. The day ran smooth and we all had a great round of golf.
by Rob (Bristow, VA) - 09/30/2013
Favorite course of the 4 we played. Staff very friendly
by Chas - 09/26/2013
Golf course was in great shape, staff was very friendly. My wife and I had a pleasent day of golf. We will be back...
by Bob - 09/26/2013
I have been playing Wachesaw East for many years. It has a very nice lay-out and I have Never seen the greens and course in better condition.
by Bruce - 09/23/2013
I have been coming to MB twice a year since 2001 and 2013 was my first visit to Wachesaw. Having played most of the MB courses, I am asking myself why didn't I play here sooner? The course is a treasure, the staff is friendly and accomodating and the grille is a treat. Playing midweek, I had the opportunity to mix with some members and interact with the staff and if I could choose a location in MB to make a permanent home, this is it!
by Chris (Cincinnati, OH) - 09/19/2013
Club pro helpful
by O'B - 09/13/2013
Golf course in the best condition of any course in myrtle beach. The staff were helpful and friendly. had a most enjoyable day
by Corey - 09/13/2013
Wachesaw East is in great shape tee to green! Absolutely perfect, play it now. Bag drop, pro shop, marshals, cart service and grill are first class. This is a great golf course.
by Kevin - 09/10/2013
What a great experience can't wait to play this course again!!
by Gina - 08/20/2013
Wachesaw was outstanding golf course love the course. greens rolled great and the shape of the course was great. Proshop staff was very friendly as well as the bag drop. Would recommend this course.
by Dan - 08/16/2013
Very nice golf course. good tempo of play (4hrs. 15min) entire golf course in good shape. Staff helpful. good bag drop atttnedees. I'll play again.

by John (Murrells Inlet, SC) - 07/09/2013
Was paired with another single; very much enjoyed that and the company and his quality of golf. Pro shop had us going off back; starter put us off front. After 1 hole, entire front side was backed up which made for a very long day. Golf is not meant to be played with 10 minutes between shots.
by Dennis (Lancaster, SC) - 06/28/2013
Enjoyed the course. There were some bare spots on tees and fairways but the greens were good. Good layout. Starter was really friendly. Would play there again.
by Doug (Crystal Beach, ON) - 05/22/2013
Great Course
by Stephen (Summerville, SC) - 05/21/2013
Everyone very polite. Course in excellent condition
by Thomas (Westford, MA) - 05/01/2013
For the time of year, the course was quite nice.
by Henry (Slinger, WI) - 04/29/2013
The course was very well groomed. The starter seemed a little disorganized.
by Joe (Gettysburg, PA) - 01/31/2013
January play was excellent!
by Timothy - 01/30/2013
We played on 1/26/13 and had a nice time. I think some of the high ratings are a bit inflated. The greens were not real good with a lot of grain and some of the fairways were thin but overall a nice course. The course winds it's way through a housing community which detracts from the experience. I think there are a lot nicer courses around so I wouldn't pay too much to play here. The staff was nice and obliging.
by Alex (Conway, SC) - 01/29/2013
Great condition, little wet.
by Philip (Manchester, MD) - 01/28/2013
Nice track the only drawback is the distance between the holes being a walker it can lead one to forget he's on a golf course. Nice green complexes were running quick. Which is always a good thing.
by Timothy - 01/27/2013
We played on 1/26/13 and had a great day. The tees are fine, the fairways are a little thin in spots and the greens are very grainy but that may be because it's January. Overall, I enjoyed the layout with some easy and some very difficult holes. I would recommend a trip to Wachesaw East. The staff was very nice to boot.
by Jane (Laconia, NH) - 01/18/2013
Fairways soft from recent rain)
by Mark - 01/15/2013
Good course conditions and enjoyed our round. Finishing hole was a real challenge!
by Andrew (Charleston, SC) - 12/30/2012
Cart only holes were verbal only. It would have been nice to have a written reminder in the cart. No towels in the carts. We had a great experience for a great bargain.
by Michael (Timonium, MD) - 12/20/2012
The course is really well designed and well maintained. I'm certainly going to play this course next time I'm down there.
by Brett (Waretown, NJ) - 11/26/2012
It was a nice course price was right will play again.
by Jeff (Siler City, NC) - 11/21/2012
Great course. Wind was blowing and it was cold as crap, but the round was fun! 90 degree rule in effect, so everybody in our group could enjoy their round! Will definitely play again!
by Dale (Plymouth, MI) - 11/05/2012
Challenging but not too difficult.
by Diane Biesiadecki - 11/04/2012
The course was very female friendly. I would like to have a score card with a map or diagram of the holes. I wish they only started people off one side because the second 9 played extremely slow.
by Kenneth (Geneva, IL) - 10/30/2012
Course was OK, probably will not play again though.
by Richard (Roselle Park, NJ) - 10/09/2012
Beverage cart free pouring vodka without spout. $6.75 for a short pour is ridiculous. Will not be back.
by Todd (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 10/09/2012
Overall great course and service with exception to starter. Arrived early bought range balls and after 5 min starter yelled for us to get on tee. It was 20 min earlier than tee time. Wasted range balls and he was cranky/rude.
by Jenny - 09/08/2012
The course was beautiful and well maintained. The staff were all friendly. However, we had a bad experience as we were behind 3 or 4 groups of women that were very slow. We basically waited for every single shot! I expressed this to the ranger/starter, and he didn't do anything. He said as long as they were within 15 mins., he won't say anything. Oh well, to me these ladies definitely took their time hitting. In addition, the course was very wet. It has been a very bad experience overall. Sorry, we won't come back.
by Bill (Mount Olive, NC) - 09/06/2012
Course was too wet. Needs to improve drainage. Length is fair for 10 handicap golfers. Loved the greens!
by Robert (Castle Creek, NY) - 08/25/2012
Even in spite of the course being wet from all the rain, it was still an incredible visit, spectacular layout and immaculate condition.
by Christopher (Marriottsville, MD) - 08/21/2012
(Would like to have known prior to play) if they were on split tees or not? Members behind us were obtrusive!
by Richard (Irmo, SC) - 08/17/2012
This course was in excellent condition and played fairly; the weather was against however with extreme humidity at the onset, and a cart path only policy which led to overheating and an extremely long 18 holes!
by Harry (Charlotte, NC) - 08/06/2012
Good layout and a fair challenge.
by Kermit (Greensboro, RI) - 08/01/2012
Very good.
by Carl (Missoula, MT) - 07/27/2012
I had previously played at Pawleys Plantation and the Wachesaw East course was quite a bit easier. Wachesaw East was a fun course but not quite as well maintained as Pawleys.
by Robert (Strongsville, OH) - 07/22/2012
Course is in excellent condition - greens held well and putted true. Heat and humidity made the course challenging, but not so tough the enjoyment was taken out of it. Rangers did great job of keeping groups moving - finished round in under 4.5 hours.
by Ed (Carrollton, KY) - 07/20/2012
Course in excellent condition. Sorry I had not been there before. We have been vacationing here for twenty plus years.
by Preston (Boiling Springs, SC) - 07/17/2012
We all thought it was a great course. The only issue we had was the amount of standing water, but that was no fault of the course due to the torrential rain the 2 days prior. Overall, a great course, and we will be returning.
by Grant (Wentsville, MO) - 07/12/2012
Nice course. We've played here before and will play again.
by Lawrence (Maryville, TN) - 07/05/2012
Playable course.
by Wendy (Lakeland, FL) - 07/02/2012
Enjoyed the course. Would have liked to know about the conditions of the greens.
by Larry (Winston Salem, NC) - 07/01/2012
Very challenging course. Greens were aerated 2-3 weeks ago and have recovered nicely.
by Philip (King George, VA) - 06/30/2012
Great experience. Only complaint was slow back nine. With early tee time and double tee start caught up to last of the morning groups. Twenty minute wait at the turn.
by Mike (Ladson, SC) - 06/23/2012
Pro in pro shop was FANTASTIC! Fun course ... has personality. Not repetitive. Beautiful clubhouse. Ranger was an ass. Should've bought yardage book.
by Matthew (Atlanta, GA) - 06/13/2012
Should have bought a yardage book. Didn't know about hidden creeks etc.
by John (Ephrata, PA) - 05/14/2012
Very good layout. Course conditions good, although some fairways had a lot of cut grass clumps on them, and several areas around the rough were sparse/burned out. Tees and greens were very good. A nice design with plenty of challenge. Would play again.
