Festiva Nabs Myrtle Beach Resort Golf Course

Patton Hospitality Management will manage the 18-hole golf course and on-site grill at the Ellington at Wachesaw Plantation East resort.

Myrtle Beach, S.C.—Festiva Real Estate Holdings acquired Wachesaw Plantation East golf course in a transaction that includes the East Grill and Pub. Patton Hospitality Management (PHM), a resort management company based in Asheville, N.C., which currently manages the Ellington resort operations, will also be the management entity for the golf course and the grill. The asset traded for an undisclosed amount.

Located at 911 Riverwood Drive, just off Highway 17, on the site of a former rice plantation in Murrells Inlet, the Wachesaw Plantation East golf course is 20 minutes south of the Myrtle Beach International Airport. The facility is part of Ellington at Wachesaw Plantation East resort. Currently, PHM manages the resort, but the firm will also manage Festiva Real Estate Holdings’ new acquisition.

We’ll continue our commitment to the Ellington community to offer them the best service for owners and guests alike,” said Herbert Patrick Jr., president of Festiva Real Estate Holdings, in a prepared statement.
