It’s a course that renowned designer Dan Maples has often referred to as “one of my best” – and with good reason.

Set majestically in a stunning Lowcountry setting, Willbrook Plantation plays through a pair of plantations that date back as far as the 18th century. Historical markers dot the course amid a wide array of moss-draped oaks and abundant wildlife, Lowcountry marshes and wetlands.

Wide landing areas make Willbrook Plantation especially appealing for women; Golf for Women’s Magazine has featured it among its top 25 places to play in the United States. It has also been featured on national television shows, including Golf Channel’s “Road Trip Myrtle Beach,” to showcase its natural splendor and beauty. A well-appointed clubhouse offers a back porch that overlooks the 18th fairway and green and its surrounding nature – the perfect place to unwind from an unforgettable golfing experience.

Josh (Myrtle Beach, SC)


I feel it’s the best place to play here for the $. Fairways and greens are phenomenal. Staff is excellent and it’s a true low country setting with all of the mossy oaks. Can’t wait to get back there for another round.

Phil (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Green are very fast and in great shape. Great layout and can be very challenging at times. The wind was blowing and it was cold that made it tuff to score but it was fun. Great staff from the head Golf professional Kevin to the snack bar lady.

Jim (Fort Mill, SC)


Nice course. Well groomed. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I will return to play another day.

Tony (Wyandotte, MI)


My first time playing here. Course was in real nice shape for January and will definitely want to return. Course is challenging but doesn't beat you up greens were very nice and seemed to roll true. Very good experience highly recommend.

Don (Murrells Inlet, SC)


In great condition especially for January. Our group of 8 locals had a great time. On the 18th hole, our foursome had 4 par putts. 3 about 15-20 feet and one about 10 feet. We all drained them, making for a memorable finish.

Michael (Hollywood, Virginia)


Very well maintained and staffed, a great value and I really appreciate their children's policy.

Dave (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Course was in great shape, even though it is "Overseeding" time this time of year. Will be perfect once all the "Winter Grass" grows in. Very scenic holes.

JOHNNY (conway, sc)


Fair and balance (local resident) A great Maple design but fair throughout even with the water holes. The course at this point in time is immaculate from tee boxes to greens. If you are on a golf package make certain to include this one as part of the outing. You will enjoy a scenic view, superb conditions and great staff...have fun!



I have to say the course is in very good condition tee to green. My complaint is that I booked a threesome and they added a fourth to my group which is not uncommon but I was forced to share a cart with someone I didn't know. They told me they didn't have enough carts to give the other guy his own cart. This is not a comfortable position to be put into, so I will think again before booking at Willbrook. To me, they did not consider my feelings, they just were packing in as many players they could for the money. If you care more about the course than the customers, you will lose customers.



Lots of water on the front. Island green. Great course in great condition.

Mike (Oneida,NY)


This is a great layout. The course was in very good condition, a little dry from lack of rain. Unfortunately it was a very slow round, not really the course fault, it was just very busy. Great gal in the grill, super hot dogs.Play here often and will be back again.



This was one of the last courses I played in the Primetime Founders Group but moving forward it will be one of the most frequent. We loved this course and as mid/high handicappers it was fair and it was in spectacular shape. This is one of my favorite courses down here now and we will be back very often.

Teresa (Annandale, VA)


The course was in great shape with fast greens. Excellent service. I will definitely be back.

Laura (Sunman, IN)


Very scenic course. Beautiful setting.

Ken (Pawleys Island, SC)


Tees, fairways and the green were very good on my visit. I had plenty of roll in the fairway and the green were of good speed. Starter let me play by myself and I got my round in under 3 hours with a stop after 9 holes.

Brenda (Plainville, CT)


I love this course. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The stories that are told along various holes makes it unique. I rated the course condition as good and not excellent because this time of year they are reseeding and its almost end of season.



Beautiful historic property, course was very eye appealing and in great condition. We will return.

Susan (Dallastown, PA)


Really enjoyed it. Good value, nice course.

Allen (Charlotte, NC)



Mark (Grove City, PA)


Accommodated a single, really appreciated that.

Tim (Louisville, KY)


The design of the course and the beautiful layout on a plantation with moss covered trees was picture perfect.



Staff of starters need to get a clue. We were a twosome paired with another twosome. Teed off at 8:30. No one was in front of us for atleast two holes. At the seventh hole this ancient little Irish guy told us we needed to pick up the pace. He was totally off base. We were hitting from the whites. Two groups in back were threesomes with some hitting from the yellows. We played the front nine in two hours five minutes and the 18 in four hours 19 minutes. Well within reason. Tough crap if a threesome has to wait. Foursome has priority. It threw off our game for a couple holes until we realized we were within the proper time. Guess what Will room this is a resort course. Take your misplaced authority and stick it. Another time I was here and ten minutes before my tee time I was pressured to hurry because of twosomes they let out early but couldn't make the turn because of the double teeing. This is total BS. The starters and Marshalls need some lessons in etiquette. I told this to the golf pro and was given lip service that they would take to the Marshall. Check prior reviews and the staff here is full of themselves. Greens were not cut and shaggy. Minimal rain day before.

David (Sumter, SC)


The course plays much longer than the indicated yardage. This is due to the fact that there are many subtle angles that reside within each hole. Failure to position the ball in the correct side of the fairway can make the course very difficult. Having said that, by locating the ball in the correct locations many greens provide that opportunity for a very fun and enjoyable afternoon of golf. I played with my wife and she was inside of 125 yards on many of the par 4 and par 5 holes hitting to the green in regulation. Hope this provides useful information for the women who are interested. There were a few burnt spots due to lack of rain. None of these impacted the play of anyone in our group.



Great course!



Every hole on the course is interesting. You really have to have a keen sense of managing your game and where to be for your next shot. Course management is very important.

Kevin (Browns Summit, NC)


The course is very attractive. Holes are challenging, fair, and all are very different from one another.

Richard (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Great, fantastic experience... but played like crap. My son and I will definitely play this course again. Loved seeing the 10 foot gator, glad my ball wasn't near him

Scott (Luckey, OH)


(Liked the) greens

Steven (Greensboro, NC)


Willbrook Plantation was the best course we played out of the eight courses we played.

Linda (Beverly, MA)


Extremely slow. 5 hrs and 45 min way too long.

Mark (Marcy, NY)


The course overbooked. It took us almost 5 and a half hours to complete our round. That is unacceptable. Will not golf there again.



The golf course is in phenomenal shape. Highly recommend playing Willbrook!

Jon (New Concord, OH)


Great all around experience. We really liked this course.

Brian (Rochester, MI)


Always enjoyable

Andre (Myrtle Beach, SC)


(Good) Staff

Patrick (Kanata, ON)


Course was in excellent shape. Was interested to play another Dan Maples design (one of my favourites is his Oyster Bay) and was definitely not disappointed with Willbrook.



Course was great as always. One of my favorites. Didn't disappoint, highly recommend.

James (Springville, IN)


I have played this course many times and it is always in great condition.



Golf Course is in great shape. Greens are rolling nice. A must play if your in or around Pawleys Island.

Ed (Grande Digue, NB)


Nice layout. Good conditions for time of year.

Roy (Gainesville, GA)


All around a good experience, greens good and fairway drained well.

Michael (Ellicott City, MD)


Best course in the southern tier. Takes a bit longer for this course to dry out. Greens in great shape.

James (South Yarmouth, MA)


Real nice tract -- great layout -- enjoyed -- target golf for sure .. I wish tree could talk -- a lot of history there .



Had a great day. Pace was good, about 4 hours. Fairways were wet but we could still run the fairways, 90 degree rule. Overall nice shape, with only a few bare spots on the greens but it appears the maintenance was working with them to get them back to normal. Always a good spot with very nice scenery being a plantation course. We will return soon.

Gary (Cornelius, NC)


The course was in great shape. Played from the senior tees challenging but not overly difficult. Really makes you choose your club carefully. Plays 1-2 clubs longer probably due to the huge greens.

Benjamin (Gastonia, NC)


Course was in great shape and always enjoy playing this course when we visit Litchfield. Challenging course that requires accuracy off the tee and into the greens but visibly attractive with the Spanish moss off the trees and well shaded.

Sims (High Point, NC)


The entire staff - starter, attendants, course marshalls, grill - super friendly and professional! Beautiful course.

Dayrell (Haymarket, VA)


Played here before this is a special place with its History. Excellent service.

Nancy (Morristown, NJ)


A really pretty course, due to a lot of previous rain, was cart path only, we understand why but always feel taken advantage of when not told or notified ahead to choose to play under those conditions or inform us and a course 1/2 price discount, or carry bag and walk it and don't charge the cart fee. we respect the clubs course protection, but we met players due to health can't do all the walking, or driven a distance to far to decline and leave. Customer service should be job one.

Paul (Boisbri, QC)


Nice golf course. Food at the grill could be better.
