Willbrook Plantation

Location 426 Tidewater Circle
Pawleys Island, SC 29585
Rating 4.4 Stars

Noted course designer Dan Maples has often referred to Willbrook Plantation as “One of my best!” Carved from the site of two Carolina Plantations, Willbrook offers a tranquil blend of golf and wildlife that has been featured on Nature Scene TV. New hybrid “Champion” Bermuda greens installed in late 2006 have made it even more stunning.

Located on the south end of the Grand Strand, and as part of the Waccamaw Golf Trail, Willbrook winds its way amid a centuries-old oak forest where nature abounds. It was recently featured on the award-winning television show “Nature Scene” for its peaceful coexistence of golfers and nature. The par-5 15th hole, demonstrates the many challenges of the wetlands, waterways and stately oaks used in this great design. Willbrook is known for not only the tactical play ability required, but also for the natural surroundings you’ll experience. This makes it a favorite of returning women golfers.

For the sixth year in a row, Golf for Women has listed Willbrook on their list of “America’s 50 Best Courses,” (this year at #25) and Golf Digest awarded it 4.5 STARS since 2006 in their “Places to Play.”

Included in Golf Digest’s America’s Top 50 Courses for Women for 2010

“Top 50 for Women” – by Golf For Women Magazine (Number 25 in the US).

Holes 1 and 15 are featured in the book The 100 Greatest Holes along the Grand Strand, published by The Sun News

    Only played the front nine but enjoyed it very much. Course is in amazing shape for this time of year. Greens roll smooth and true. I will be back.

    Great golf course and in excellent condition. Greens were a bit slow, but that rolled well. Being the in January and recent weather, I will allow a pass on the greens. This course has always been one of my favorites!

    The course is great and my son visiting from Colorado loved it! Unfortunately we did have a problem at the turn. Anthony the starter meets us and says 2hrs for front nine that's great. I had to go to the pro shop to pay for the round as the computers were down earlier when we arrived. Took care of that and was getting hot dog when Anthony comes in and says "got to get to tee box right away"! Thought maybe he was joking but staff assured me he was not! Other than that the golf is great.
