Description:

Once the home of the Kathy Ireland/Greens Competition Classic, Wachesaw...

Once the home of the Kathy Ireland/Greens Competition Classic, Wachesaw East was named the 2007 Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association. It has also recently received honors for its fairways, customer service and playability by national publications. In short, Wachesaw East is the complete package.

Utilizing five sets of distinct tees, the Clyde Johnston design plays anywhere from 6,933 yards down to 4,995. Regardless, the thought-provoking track was crafted to reward the patient, an approach that stick with players after wrapping up on the signature hole. The green of the par-4, 430-yard No. 18 bends slightly around a small pond, leaving most to consider it one of the course's most challenging holes.

Solid B+ golf course in myrtle beach. ..

Very good layout and greens roll true. Definitely worth the drive to Merrill'S Inlet. Have dinner at Flo's after golf. Best blackened fish on the beach. ..

Wachesaw Golf Course is in terrible shape. Greens are very bad. Dried out golf course, edges of fairways hard. Very poorly maintained golf course. Its like they didn't put water on the course in 5 months. We stayed in a condo across the street from main building. This place is VERY old. Carpet is at least 30+ years old, furniture... More

Thank you for your review. It is always good to get golfer's perspective on course conditions and overall golfing experience. We feel the course is in good condition for early spring. Keeping the course in drier conditions allow our golfers tee shots to roll promoting more distance off the tee. We apologize that the golf course condition did not meet... More

This former site of the LPGA is a great golf track that is always in fantastic shape and offers a variety of challenges to the golfer! Their greens are typically fast but will hold your shots and the course is carved out of an old plantation.

After a tough winter for area courses, Wachesaw East has recovered nicely over the summer thanks to a hard working maintenance staff and re-sodding a number of greens. The ball is rolling smoothly and the fairways are in very good condition on this beautiful track.

Our group played this course knowing the greens had issues in the spring. I can say it was not 100% but very close ! The course as a whole was much better than most of the other courses we played this week. It was a great layout ! Great Day!
