Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Club has a beautiful clubhouse complete with check-in center for their golf villas, a wonderful bar and grill area and a golf shop that offers so much variety and options for golfers that need to pick up a nice souvenir from their visit or a glove or box of golf balls needed to use during their round. On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we take a look at what PGA Head Professional, Mike DeLuca and his staff have put together to offer their guests when they come to play Wachesaw East.
As soon as visiting golfers enter the golf shop they can see that they have a lot of merchandise to choose from. There are several racks of golf shirts and pullovers as soon as golfers walk in the door. They also have several styles of hats to choose from and they even can get some shorts as well. There is also a section for golf shoes and socks, which is not the norm for golf shops at most courses. They even have a giant “gumball machine” next to the counter. Yes, we said gumball machine.
Visitors that would like to purchase a logo golf ball to take home as a souvenir have a chance at getting even more than that. Guests purchase a token to put in the machine with a guarantee to get their logo ball, but they also have a chance at winning one of five different prizes as well. The prizes range from free golf balls to a free weekend stay with golf included at Ellington at Wachesaw East golf villas. This is an extremely unique promotion along the Grand Strand and a great deal of fun for visiting golfers.
“It was an idea we came up with a little while ago” said DeLuca. “It has been well received by our visiting golfers as well as our members. It adds a little fun to getting a souvenir golf ball.”
The golf shop staff is friendly and courteous and always ready to assist with any need guests may have. Whether it is finding a shirt size, locating a hat or making a tee time, Mike and his staff are tip top in customer service and do it with a smile.
