Wild Wing Plantation - Avocet Course

  • Overall: - 7.52

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.

  • Rich - I played this course reluctantly after reading some reviews and seeing a rating somewhere below 8. While I haven't played all the courses on the Grand Strand, I have played 29 of the top rated courses. I can't tell you how impressed I was with this course. The greens were immaculate, rolled perfectly. Couldn't ask for more with the grooming to the fairways and rough. The staff was courteous, professional and prompt. The layout was interesting and fun. This course is on my top five list. We were riding on fairways soon after considerable rain. Don't pass it up. We didn't eat at the grill. - 01/19/2016 - 9

  • William (Piedmont, SC) - Drove 250 miles for cart path only on some really wide fairways. Will be a question for course chosen in the future. Overseeding does not help ball to sit up. - 11/01/2015 - 8

  • Douglas (Easton, PA) - The course was in superior condition, the greens were FAST but true. - 09/25/2015 - 9

  • Jerry - A very nice course for the cost. Well maintained. Pace of play was good. Have played here a few times over the past 4-5 years and conditions have been good. An enjoyable round. - 08/01/2015 - 9

  • John (East Liverpool, OH) - Enjoyed course, there was some rain overnight and the course was still in great shape. The bunkers had no sand in them, they were like hitting off a cart path. And what ever you do, don't take the ball out of the hole, there is no break. - 07/26/2015 - 8
