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.”

Fairways are mostly weeds where there is grass, greens are brown and large spots with no grass, played this course every year we come to Myrtle Beach, but will not play again it is the worst course in the area even for 20 dollars. Used to be a great course in great shape 3 or 4 years ago. Too bad, nice layout.

My buddy and I absolutely loved this place! It looks flat and ordinary as you pass it to the pro shop, but don't be fooled! It is a complete gem in the rough and it is not rough where it counts. We were blown away by the $29 green fee with cart. The live oaks around the clubhouse/pro shop and down Number 1 are spectacular and that hole is tough with a water carry. Men's tees play from 7000/6500/6000 yards and it makes a difference. Holes 2-5 are ordinary but a challenge. At Hole 6, the course starts to show you how good it really is! The back 9 is FANTASTIC with only one short par 3 in the ordinary category. Number 18 is the most beautiful finishing hole I have played in 30 years of golfing. The greens, fairways, and tee boxes are in great shape. The rough is scabby and rough, but very playable. Sure, the cart paths are broken, so if you are a snob, stay away and miss out! Beautiful clubhouse with a great guy bartender/cook named Tony. Pours a heavy handed mixed drink for $3.50! An ideal golf day would be a morning round here from the back tees followed by lunch/drinks, with an afternoon round from the whites, completed by blotto drinks at the bar!
All on the cheap..."git urself some"! Sure, it is in Georgetown, an hour south of MB. So what! Go have a blast and bring your buds!

The entire course area made the impression of not being cared for with big enthusiasm. The cart paths in particular were in bad shape.

Give this course a year or two and it will be top notch - lots of updates going on - very cool it is an old plantation with some old buildings - layout was very nice - different than we have in Ohio.

Pro shop staff was very rude. Nice clubhouse, golf course was in good shape for the price. Good first course to play on a trip.

I've played over 50 courses in the Myrtle Beach area and this is the best value for your money - play in the afternoon then stop at Habeneros for Mexican on the way home, makes for a nice day.

A bit of a drive from North MB (1.5 hrs), but a very friendly staff, nice and challenging layout, but very friendly women's tees. Good course conditions made it worthwhile, plus the reasonable price! Wished there would have been some water and ball washers on the course.

Played over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised. This course has changed hands a few times over the last 10 yrs and I?ve played it each time someone new takes it over, and I can honestly say this is the best shape I?ve ever seen this course. The setting is great with huge live oaks, old plantation style clubhouse. The course won?t blow you away and is a little quirky in spots, but as I said the conditions are great and it?s very affordable for a south strand course. It?s only a 15 minute drive from Pawleys. Well worth the short drive and I played it in 3 hours. I would have no problem making the trip down to Georgetown to play this again.

Played this course recently as part of my South End golf trip. Was well worth the drive to Georgetown to play in a classic Lowcountry setting!
