Pawleys Plantation serves Myrtle Beach's Waccamaw Golf Trail

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. -- Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, S.C. has announced that it will begin offering accommodations to golfers playing the Waccamaw Golf Trail. The Trail is a consortium of twelve championship golf courses, including some of America's most awarded, and two accommodations providers located on the quiet southern tip of the Grand Strand.

Renowned for its casual elegance and exceptional service, Pawleys Plantation is the premier resort on the Waccamaw Neck of coastal Georgetown County, S.C., just south of Myrtle Beach. Its Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course has been part of the Waccamaw Golf Trail since it was created.

Pawleys Plantation is a 582-acre resort surrounded by spectacular natural wetlands, salt marshes and a 600-acre nature preserve. It offers exceptional accommodations in charming Lowcountry villas that are spacious and beautifully appointed. Lining the park-like fairways of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, the villas offer magnificent views of the course, lakes and the salt marsh.

Waccamaw Trail golfers who stay at Pawleys Plantation will have access to a gracious antebellum-style clubhouse that has a restaurant, bar and full-service pro shop. In addition to golf, guests can enjoy on-site golf school, tennis, swimming, and a fitness room.

"We are delighted to be an official host resort of the Waccamaw Golf Trail," said Jann Walker, director of marketing at Pawleys Plantation. "We guarantee that golfers who stay at Pawleys Plantation will experience a new and exciting dimension to the Trail. From the moment you come through our gated entry and travel under our huge moss-draped oaks toward our clubhouse, you will know that you have come to a special place. We'll ensure that your stay along the Waccamaw Golf Trail is as memorable as your best round of golf."
