Description

About Wachesaw East

This former rice plantation provides the setting for this championship layout designed by noted architect by Clyde Johnston. Carved from gently rolling terrain, the heavily wooded course offers five sets of tees to challenge golfers of all abilities. A hint of Scottish design, accented with fresh-water wetlands and lakes, makes this distinctive course a unique and enjoyable experience. Wachesaw East received 4 stars in Golf Digest's “Best Places to Play” and has hosted several prestigious LPGA Tournaments.

"This course is greatly improved from the Spring. Greens are a little slow.They needed to grow back in from the flooding last Fall. Good deal and the course will challenge you. Stay in the fairway because the rough will cost you. Great people and the 19th hole is friendly and the food is a good value."

"I played Wachesaw East Plantation golf course with 3 friends. Weather was great and we had a fun day. Greens and fairways were in very good condition. Like other area courses, they had some problems with their greens in the spring, but the greens have recovered very well. Staff in pro shop and Pub were very friendly Just a fun day. We would play here again "

"While their were 8 greens in sad repair we were aware of them and the staff additionally advised us about them. It's obvious they are working hard to repair them. It is also obvious they are trying very hard to make your time thier as enjoyable as possible. Look forward to playing there again especially when they have recovered from Mother Nature "

"When we checked-in, we were informed about the conditions of the greens. Due to the flooding of the fall of 2015, the greens were severely affected and had many issues areas. As we had played the course the prior year, we wanted to play it regardless. To our delight, we were each given a free round of golf for anytime in the future, which will be used in 2017. While the condition of the greens somewhat affected play, they were okay. This course is an absolute great course and I recommend it to anyone. We would be back again regardless of the free round. Will likely play twice next year. Thank you for the free round - that is a nice touch. "

"I had booked the first tee time of the day; another group was sent out in front of me. When I turned, I found myself behind 2 groups that had been sent out on the 10th tee. I palyed the first 9 in less than 2 hours and the back in 2 1/2. There was not a line on the first tee and I cannot understand why groups were started on #10 in front of those turning from the front. Will not play this course again."
