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.

Skip (Chaska, MN)


The course was a great Layout. With excellent greens, we received a warm greeting and the staff was very helpful. The only issue was the pace of play which was slow to begin with and then out of nowhere at the turn we found a fivesome in front of us, what started as a really fun round into a waiting game, not fun.

Dave (Fall River, MA)


Great looking golf course. Great conditions tricky.

Michael (Oshawa, ON)


Whenever we visit MB we always like to get in a round at Willbrook. A very interesting and playable course in beautiful surroundings. The course conditions were cart path only as the fairways were wet but not unplayable. The greens were in excellent shape and fairly quick. Overall it was once again a very satisfying experience.

Gary (Havre de Grace, MD)


Open fairways and great greens.

Normand (Sainte-Thérèse-De-Blainville, QC)


The most beautiful golf I've played in the last 2 weeks.

Larry (Southmont, NC)


Hole #6 island green was our favorite.

Tre (Hendersonville, NC)


My favorite MB course. Love the oaks with most. Course is challenging, but fun to play. Only once did I opt out of using driver at tee

Don (Washington, DC)


Course holds water!!!! But nice easy layout. Not long and easy to make a novice golfer feel good!!!

Jeffrey (Louisville, OH)


Beautiful course, trees and layout. Enjoyed the history of the plantation as you could read the signs about the property on certain holes. This is a challenging course that was fun to play!

Trip (Pawleys Island, SC)


Starter was fantastic and came around to check on pace of play. Very friendly and helpful

Jeanne (Georgetown, MA)


Great, interesting course!

Jason (High Point, NC)


love the track and conditions were great. Could of used a ranger on course since tee times were not exactly spaced adequately. Took close to 5 1/2 to play a course that isn't all that tough. Overall fantastic!!!

Gerald (Moore, SC)


Well maintained and staff courteous

Sandra (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Great course

Beverly (Wilmington, NC)


Willbrook is a great course to play. The course is in very good condition considering the adverse impact that the winter has had on all of the courses. The staff is wonderful......friendly, knowledgeable and very welcoming.

Thomas (Burlington, NC)


Good test for seniors. Greens could be faster.

Bruce (Mentor, OH)


The old trees are scenic The course was in fine shape.

Joseph (Venice, FL)


Challenging but fun course. In excellent condition. Looking forward to playing to again As I would play some holes/shots differently. Course knowledge would,have been nice but we played with another couple who also had not played it before. Very nice day.

Carol (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Course was in great shape. Fairways were short, but not too short. Greens held shots and rolled true.

Michael (Andrews, NC)


Very nice course. Traditional design. Good experience.

Crawford (Columbia, SC)


A really nice course in excellent condition. A fun experience.

Matthew (Stoney Creek , ON)


Great experience, beautiful course!!

Larry (Ocean Isle Beach, NC)


Great facilities, great course in perfect condition and the staff makes you feel like royalty!!! Can’t wait to go back!!!

Marcia (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Really enjoyed the beautiful scenery at Willbrook- the different varieties of trees with the moss hanging from many of them. We golfed with a couple who lived on the course & were very helpful with information about the course & the area

John (Orefield, PA)


Only played back nine due to rain. Rain check given for future play. Course is nice will play again

Jean (Joliette, HI)


Love this Course...Good shape, beautiful layout

Rich (Pawleys Island, SC)


As you arrive and check in you are greeted by the courteous staff. The course is in great shape from the tee boxes to the perfectly groomed greens. The large oak trees draped with Spanish moss lining most holes, confirm you you are playing in South Carolina. With the over-seeded tee boxes and fairways, you’ll enjoy playing off green grass all year. One of the best values in the area.

Michael (Guelph, ON)


Old style course lots of trees very nice setting.Try to play it every time we go to MB

Julie (South Glens Falls, SC)


Did not feel helped as much as other courses. Late start due to weather and was told "we will let you know", when we asked for update.

Thomas (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Great experience, great course

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.
