Wachesaw Plantation East

Hole No. 17 – Par 5 (“Azalea”)

Championship Tees: 500 Yards

4th Tees: 485 Yards

Members Tees: 470 Yards

2nd Tees: 456 Yards

Forward Tees: 415 Yards

As the No. 4 handicap hole, this par 5 offers a challenging warmup test leading into the No. 2 handicap finishing hole.

Hit your tee shot to the right center of the fairway to have a chance to reach the green in two.

If you choose to lay up, note the lake guarding the right side of the fairway.

Either way, the serpentine-like creek separating the fairway from the green offers one of the more compelling visuals in Myrtle Beach golf.
