Must read

Mike DeLuca

Head Professional – Wachesaw Plantation East

  • Years at the course: 6
  • Years in the Myrtle Beach market: 17
  • Years in the golf industry: 17
  • Birthplace/Hometown: Poughkeepsie, New York
  • College: Coastal Carolina University
  • Affiliation: PGA
  • Favorite hole at your course: No. 17: “A challenging par-5 with water on the left and right sides of the fairway. There’s also water in front of the green, with a bunker guarding the front and back of the green. If you hit a long drive, you can potentially reach the green in two, but if you can’t, the challenging layup shot is narrow.”
  • Favorite thing about your course or club: “The 19th Hole,’ also known at the Toasted Tee is a great opportunity to grab some beverages and food before, during, or after the round!  The food is delicious and the beverages always help with your golf swing!”
  • Strangest request from a customer: “A customer wanted as many sand bottles as possible to fill divots on the course. He was a single scheduled to play in the afternoon and wanted extra sand bottles as he waited on groups in front of him.”
  • CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened at your course: “The LPGA Tour hosted a tour event at Wachesaw East for four consecutive years from 1997 to 2000. Meg Mallon still holds the course record of 10 under par (62)!”
