Located in Georgetown, this historic golf course lies equidistant between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The 30-minute drive south of Plantation Resort is worth the effort to play among ancient, moss-covered oaks and on a course that rewards smart, strategic play. Fashioned from what use to be a pre-Revolutionary War, low-country rice plantation, Wedgefield is the epitome of Southern charm: gracious customer service, vivid history (including a headless figure that “haunts” the grounds at night) and luscious landscape that neighbors the slow-moving, Black River.
Designed by Porter Gibson, Wedgefield Plantation Golf Club opened in 1973, and is ranked among the South Strand’s most elite golf facilities. The course features 4 sets of tees for different skill levels, and measures 7,072 yards from the longest tees. With dangerously placed water and bunkers, this course demands well-placed shots and lay-ups to do well.
An online review from last February reported that no matter the hole, “They make you…think about every shot.” And the 14th hole in particular was reportedly the “intimidator” because you have to hit over the water not once, but twice. Asked about the shot, the player in the online review says, “It's one of the most challenging par-4s I have ever played."
We are excited to offer our owners and guests yet another golf option when staying at Plantation Resort. Make sure to come enjoy a slower pace of life and golf reminiscent of the Old South at Wedgefield Plantation Golf Club in historic Georgetown.
