On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we head south to Murrells Inlet and take our first look at Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Club. This Clyde Johnston design is located on a former rice plantation and nestled in among the tall, Carolina pines and wetlands. This traditional Scottish design was once home of the Kathy Ireland/Greens Competition Classic, and LPGA Tour event.

Wachesaw East also boasts a very large practice facility and driving range. It is a fantastic place to warm up before hitting the first tee. There is plenty of space to hit balls to dial in the swing on the huge driving range with a large hitting area and wide open range. The practice area is spacious as well. The putting green is quite large. Located just next to it is a nice short game practice area with a sand bunker and chipping green. There is no part of the game that cannot be practiced just outside the clubhouse doors. It is very convenient for golfers to get from the clubhouse to the range to the first tee.
