About Our Golf Course
Scottish Flair in South Carolina…
In Wachesaw Plantation East, architect Clyde Johnson has created an alluring taste of Scottish design. Located in the scenic fishing village of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, just 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach International Airport, Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Club is a championship eighteen-hole facility built on the site of a former rice plantation. The exhilarating layout has been the site of four nationally-televised, professional golf tournaments on the LPGA Tour: the 1997 Susan G. Komen International, the 1998 & 1999 City of Hope Myrtle Beach Classic, and the 2000 Kathy Ireland/Greens.com Classic.
A strong taste of Scottish golf heritage is evident in the traditional mounding and rolling fairways that lead to the fast and true tif-eagle greens. Freshwater lakes and scenic wetlands provide a tranquil background to enhance your golf experience.
Playing in the 1998 City of Hope Classic, LPGA Tour player Meg Mallon set the course record: 10-under par 62. However, with five sets of tees and a professional practice/teaching facility, Wachesaw Plantation East provides an enjoyable experience for any level golfer. Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” gave Wachesaw Plantation East a four-star rating and the readers of Golf Digest chose Wachesaw Plantation East as one of the top 50 courses in the United States for customer service.
