2018 spring classic
march 14 - 15
The 2018 Spring Classic will kick off the Durham Junior Golf Tour’s 26th season. Now in its eighth season, the Spring Classic has seen players from Ontario travel to South Carolina to compete in a 36-hole tournament and participate in a week-long training camp. New for 2018, the championship event is now an open event and is welcoming all junior golfers to participate. The event will feature both an individual stroke play competition and team challenge.
With rolling fairways, strategically placed bunkers and traditional mounding, it’s easy to see the Scottish influences in the Clyde Johnson designed Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Course.
Doglegs & Marsh Carries at Wachesaw PlantionEast
Built on an old rice plantation, the course measures 6,933 yards from the back set of its five tees and has hosted a number of LPGA tournaments. A scenic course with tree-lined fairways, wetlands and freshwater ponds and lakes, it’s been selected as a Myrtle Beach course of the year and received accolades as one of the country’s best courses for customer service.
The course starts with two doglegs, the first requiring a marsh carry from the tees and then an approach shot over an army of bunkers to the green. Its third hole is perhaps its most interesting, a par 5 with a marsh carry required about 150 yards back from the green and a ridge halfway in to deny any bump and run attempts. Another hole of note, the 380-yard par-4 No. 6 dubbed the “Narrow” features the skinniest of fairways with sharp drop offs on either side. The course’s most demanding holes are likely its last three including the signature No. 18. Facing water off the tee, the fairway essentially stops 100 yards short of the green with plenty of bunkers around the green. Golfers can take advantage of a clubhouse with locker rooms and full practice facility.
