Willbrook Plantation Golf Club
Willbrook Plantation Golf Club traverses across two former Carolina rice plantations. Beautiful lakes and stately oaks provide a breathtaking backdrop. Several sand bunkers are spread throughout the golf course, and ruins of an old plantation also appear on the golf course. This golf course has been featured on Nature Scene, a nationally televised show, as a study of how nature and man can co-exist on a golf course.
Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play has given this course a 4 ½ star rating. Consistently rated as one of the Myrtle Beach area’s top golf courses, Willbrook Plantation has gone well beyond its niche as one of South Carolina’s most popular for women.
Willbrook, a Dan Maples design set in Pawleys Island gives players of all skill levels the type of round they’re looking for. Winding through a pair of plantations, one dating back to the late 1700s, Willbrook has long been seen as an environmentalist’s dream. The course’s pristine 18 holes are woven through natural grasses, Lowcountry marshes and wetlands – and the wildlife that accompanies the track is nothing to scoff at either.
But the ultimate reward here is the golf. Any number of holes on the course could be considered signature worthy, based on the variety from one hole to the next. It further elevates Willbrook Plantation into the realm of the area’s best.
