Wild Wing Plantation - Avocet Course

  • Overall: - 7.87

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.

  • Walter (Martins Ferry, OH) - Very nice course. It had some interesting holes. Challenging but fair. - 05/27/2016 - 9

  • Richard (New Milford, CT) - Overall excellent course. Cart paths really showing there age though. Staff and clubhouse made it a very enjoyable experience. - 05/21/2016 - 9

  • Gordon (Stuarts Draft, VA) - Loved the greens! Everyone was very accomodating. - 05/19/2016 - 9

  • Steve - Poor course management. Play was backed up and on a turn we discovered the 3-some in front of us were fishing! They brought a fishing rod, complete with worm, and would wait for the green to clear before teeing off - even on a par-5. Why would the cart manager load a cart with a fishing pole in the bag!? Should have been made to leave the fishing pole and worm in the clubhouse or in their car. After the starter checked us onto the course, we did not see a marshal all day until I finally called the pro shop to complain. In the mean time the 4-some behind us had hit into us (about 2 feet from where we were putting on the green). Not once but 2 times they hit within 2 feet of our position. When the course is filled - Avocet must manage the play. For $70 a round, one would expect to see a course marshal and least on every 9 holes. I would not recommend this course unless you bring a helmet to thwart balls being hit into you and you are ready for a 6 hour round. - 05/17/2016 - 5
