Wild Wing Plantation - Avocet Course

  • Overall: - 9.37

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.

  • Bob F. - A review of both Avocet and Hummingbird the a note that the only thing from keeping the rating down a bit is their neglect for the Hummingbird 9 hole course. AVOCET - Just flat our a great golf course. Conditions were outstanding. The tees and fairways were manicured well and the greens were firm, fast, and in great condition. This is a course to put on your list in Myrtle Beach. It is a challenging course however. Players of higher handicaps should be careful of what tees they play. On the day we played there was a great ranger out on the course checking carefully on the pace of play. He even made a group switch tees and move up. I am sure their egos were not happy with the move but it was what was needed. The course layout offers everything, including a drive-able par 4 and a reachable par 5. Because there are only a handful of courses in the world that should be a perfect 10 for a rating, Avocet earns a 9.5 HUMMINGBIRD - What a shame for this course. Hummingbird is a great 9 holes with an extremely challenging layout (from the back tees) but the course has been totally neglected. It is truly a shame because this could be a great course, especially for golf fanatics in Myrtle Beach who want to play 27. The tees were ok, the fairways below average, the bunkers un-edged, not groomed and they didn't even have rakes, and the greens were just downright horrible with bare spots, weeds, and very slow. Wild Wing - please invest some needed maintenance dollars in this course before it is too late. In addition, please invest in some new distance markers for the tee and take down the ones no longer applicable. WILD WING PLANTATION - As a package, Wild Wing is a great complex. Proshop is a 9, Bar & Restaurant a 9, Avocet Course is a 9.5 only because a 10 has to be reserved for the absolute best, and Hummingbird may be a 2 at best. Be sure to make Avocet a stop on your list and be sure to encourage the plantation to restore Hummingbird to its former glory. - 03/27/2016 - 9
