Wedgefield Plantation has recently earned an overall rating of 7.1 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course layout, course condition, location, and best value for the money.
Porter Gibson and Bob Toski designed a magnificent course that opened in 1972 which emanates the areas past. The course runs a year-round single tee, and is known for its fascinating scenic backgrounds and entrance. The signature hole – No. 14, a 433-yard, par 4 known as “The Intimidator,” requires two shots over water. A tee shot that keeps your driver in the bag has to be a mid-to-long iron shot to the right side of the fairway to set yourself up for the approach shot. This next shot demands a high ball that carries over water and lands softly onto a green that slopes to the front, toward the water, surrounded by two bunkers. One recent customers notes, “You have to hit it over water twice; It’s one of the most challenging par-4’s I have ever played.”
