On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we get to take an inside look (pun intended) of the clubhouse at Wachesaw East Golf Club. The tour is given by PGA Head Professional, Mike DeLuca. He walks us literally from the front door to the back door to show us everything that is going on throughout the entirety of the building. There is a whole lot more going on that just golf at Wachesaw East Clubhouse. So let’s follow Mike inside and see what we can learn about this busy place in Murrells Inlet.
Just inside the front doors we find the check in desk for staying on property at Ellington, the vacation condo property located at the plantation. This is where all guest visiting the property stop to get all their information concerning their stay including their rooms and advanced booking tee times. A very convenient stop along the way to a great vacation spot.
As we walk further down the hallway we come across photos and memorabilia from the years that Wachesaw East hosted the LPGA Tour for an event every summer. The highlight of this collection of items is an enlarged signed scorecard from the 1998 City of Hope Myrtle Beach Classic. Meg Mallon shot an amazing 62 to set what still is the course record. An amazing accomplishment that might never be topped here.
Further along the hall on the left is the “East Pub and Grill”. The hours of operation are 7am to 8pm daily and breakfast is served till 11am everyday! The restaurant is open to both golfers and non golfers alike. It is a great place to eat before or after a round of golf or just a fun place to stop in for lunch and dinner without playing.
Across from East Pub and Grill is the golf shop. This fully stocked shop has apparel and equipment for golfers needs. There is a fun item in the shop that most courses do not have. The giant gumball machine is a fun attraction. Golfers buy a token to put in the machine and they receive a logo ball. Golfers also get a chance at prizes attached to their logo ball as it comes out of the machine. A game of chance that is work a turn by all golfers visiting Wachesaw East.
From the golf shop golfer head out the back door to get their golf cart and clubs and head off to start their round.
