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.

This is a nicely located resort. However, it is clearly at least 20 years old (phase one) and has never been updated. The people are very friendly and helpful and I think the lack of updating is certainly on ownership which is why we didnt give them a hard time over it. I read the reviews after we booked (my...

Though the course had some issues at the beginning of the year it has recovered wonderfully and is back to being a great course to play.

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!

Thank you for your review. In early July, we had to finish sodding edges of four greens. I would estimate that the sod covered less than 20% of the surface area of these greens. The remaining 80% of the surface and the rest of the greens on the golf course were in great shape when you played. Today, we have... More

Love the beautiful homes and especially Kimbles on the bluff over looking the Waccamaw river!!!! There are some historical graves and remains of old buildings that have been lovingly maintained. Such history in all of the Murrells Inlet area.
