Wild Wing Plantation - Avocet Course

  • Overall: - 8.05

Winding through the luscious landscape of tall pines, Wild Wing Plantation is every golfer’s paradise. Designed as a signature course by the team of Jeff Brauer and Larry Nelson, the Avocet presents creative contouring, elevated tees and greens, double fairways, grass bunkers and even a double green serving 2 holes. The Avocet was recognized by Golf Digest as among “1994 Top 10 Best New Courses in America,” as well as being consistently rated a 4-star recipient since 1996 in its “Places to Play” guide.  Golfweek has ranked Avocet at Wild Wing as #6 in South Carolina in their 1995 “America's Best Golf Courses” listing.

Number 14 on Wild Wing’s Avocet course is considered by most as its signature hole.  From its elevated teeing ground, this hole gives players the option to be aggressive and try to drive the green, or lay up in one of its two fairways.   With water on the right, deep trees on the left, and a hog’s-back green, No. 14 provides everyone with a challenge. A close second to this hole would be the double green shared by Holes #6 and #17. With multiple pin locations on each hole, this double green will provide everyone with lots to talk about after the round.

Myrtle Beach Golf Insider
  • Mel (Ridgeway, ON) - (Liked the course) condition - 10/19/2016 - 9

  • Brian (Henrico, VA) - Course was in good condition given the recent rains. Pace of play was very slow due to a large group of disabled golfers in front of our group. Our round was 5:30 minutes. - 09/19/2016 - 9

  • Bob (Taylors, SC) - I had a 10:02 tee time as a single. The bag kid said "we'll get you out, there's a 4 some and a 3 some that just went off". Went to the shop, came back, no bag kid. Went to the starter at 1st tee and he sent me off by myself. I ended up waiting over every shot all day. Finally quit after 16 and left. Would it have been too much trouble to send a single out ahead of those 2 other groups? I'll NEVER go back there. Place is run in a slip shod manner. - 09/11/2016 - 6

  • Danie (Holly Springs, NC) - I would have like to know that at the turn we do not go back to the clubhouse. - 09/10/2016 - 8

  • Wayne (Aiken, SC) - The course was in great shape. The bag staff was MIA. We had to get a cart and load our own clubs. - 08/23/2016 - 8
