This edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand takes us to Murrells Inlet to Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Course. This Clyde Johnston course is a traditional Scottish design that appeals to golfers of all ages and ability levels. With 5 sets of tees golfers can choose the level of challenge they want to take on. Over the years the course has received many accolades in national golf publications and was once the host to the Kathy Ireland/Greens Competition Classic, an LPGA Tour event. All of this makes Wachesaw East a favorite among local golfers.
The management at Wachesaw East has recognized a need to reward the local golfers that continue to play the course regularly and they created the “Frequent Player Program” that provides special golf rates and other discounts for golfers that join the program. It is their way of saying “Thank you” to the most loyal of their golfing customers.
The list of great offers included in the Frequent Player Program at Wachesaw East Golf Club is quite impressive. First of all, cost to join is only $69.95. Members are guaranteed to receive the lowest non-member rates on green and cart fees and every 5th round played is FREE. There are also “Frequent Player Only” email Specials for golf and food purchases and a 10% discount on food and beverage purchases (alcoholic drinks not included). There is also a 15% discount on merchandise in the golf shop and special discount rates on golf for guests. Tee times can be booked up to 72 hours in advance and are a first come first serve basis.
The Frequent Player Program has become very popular at Wachesaw East but there is room for more golfers in the group. One of the reasons for the popularity is the low cost involvement to continue the program after the first year. The renewal rate is just $24.95 per golfer. That is a fraction of the original cost to join! The membership non-transferable of course, but members are allowed to bring up to 3 players each time they play and their guests do receive special discounts on their greens fees and carts.
It is the goal of the management and staff at Wachesaw Plantation East to provide a first rate experience and an affordable price to all golfers that come to play. They see the value and benefits of rewarding the local golfers that want to play the course again and again. This is what makes the Frequent Player Program such a big success.
