Wachesaw East Golf Course is a little bit South from Myrtle Beach, but for a 20 minute drive it is worth the trip. Green Fees are around $75 - $100, but they have specials where the fees are $45, as advertised in the local Golf Newspaper. I played for $45. I played this course with a golf course builder, and a 12 handicapper. I was close to their scores for the first 5 holes, but then my inconsistency added a stroke here and there. This course is host of a annual LPGA tournament, has a 132 slope from the back tees and a 125 slope from the middle tees, has elevated tees, water, plenty of bunkers, lots of trees and rough that is rough. I especially liked the statement on the score card "Fire Ant Mounds Are Ground Under Repair". Yes, there are plenty of fire ants on the course too. The greens are challenging, with breaks ranging from subtle to very obvious and pin placements can be teasing the golfer to take a shot at the pin when they should go for the center of the green. Rental clubs were Titelist Woods and Irons. Play was fast. The staff was excellent, the clubhouse very good, and the course was in top condition, with fast greens, but bite enough to stop a ball hit on with a long iron. I would say this is an Excellent course to play, and will definitely play it again. I shot 94,95, with a 20.5 handicap.
