Wachesaw Plantation Club is perenially recgonized as “One of the Best Courses in South Carolina” by both Golf Week and Golf Digest. Gary L. Schaal, Past President of the PGA of America and Golf Hall of Fame inductee has chosen to live and play here. Gary observes “Tom Fazio really got it right – Wachesaw Plantation Club uniquely provides a challenging, yet enjoyable golf experience for players of all levels. It is a breathtaking and amazing course with many interesting and memorable holes that you never tire of playing.”
Crafted by internationally acclaimed Tom Fazio, the course was designed to take advantage of the site’s inherent beauty and interesting elevation changes not typically found in the Carolina Low Country. The fairways are thoughtfully designed to weave through the giant oaks, with beautiful homes unobtrusively tucked out of the way in the wooded landscape. The elevation changes, along with spectacular water and sand hazards, complemented by the unexpected rolling fairways lined with love-grass knolls and grass bunkers, all contribute to the diversity that makes for such an enjoyable, engaging, and never boring experience. And the smooth true-rolling, undulating bent grass greens are unlike any putting surface you will ever experience.
The best is saved until last when you step onto the tee of the par 5 finishing hole. Long recognized as one of the best and most dramatic on the entire East Coast, starting high atop a bluff carrying a water hazard, it finishes in dramatic style at the banks of the Waccamaw River. It was recently ranked as the hardest finishing hole on the Grand Strand by the South Carolina Golf Association.
Now, you too can experience the challenge and low country beauty of the Wachesaw Plantation Club! Contact one of our Golf Directors and ask about arranging an unforgetable round on this outstanding Tom Fazio design.
