Willbrook Plantation Golf
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.
Willbrook Plantation Golf Course Course Reviews
TomDate Played: 05/25/2021
We did not have a good experience at Willbrook on May 25. Course was overloaded with golfers, first tee had 30 golfers waiting to tee off, front 9 took over 3 hours to play, no rangers on course and pro shop staff was not interested in addressing any of these issues. Course was pretty well browned out due to no or inadequate watering.

Enjoyed the round. Course was mostly in good shape, considering it's not quite spring. Would appreciate more signage and a map on the scorecard showing bunkers and hazards.

Challenging course but one of our favorites.
BrianDate Played: 10/23/2020
Course was in really good condition and love the layout/playability. Had previously booked a two-some 952am tee time. We were paired up at the course with another 2-some as would be expected on a friday. We did not tee off until 10:08am. No big deal I am on a golf course enjoying myself, doing what I love to do with my free time. We then proceeded to wait to hit on 90% of our shots finishing 9 holes in 2hrs 25min. Again no big deal the cart girl took care of us and we are on vacation. My friend and I stop in at turn for some food. The 2-some we were paired with head right to 10th tee. We get our stuff and head to 10th tee. At his point there are 5 other carts at the tee besides the 2 we are utilizing for our 4-some. The starter then proceeds to put on a show for those waiting to tee off on 10 which i assume is the first afternoon tee time groups. "Hurry up guys we to people waiting to get out'. We get our clubs proceed to tee, ONLY to find that the two guys we had been paired with had just, within seconds, teed off as they were waiting (shocker) for the fairway to clear. We then proceeded to wait on 90% of our shots on the back 9 on the way to a 4hr 48min round. To make it seem like it was us who were preventing these people from teeing off on time is ridiculous given what i just described. Left a very bad taste in our mouths for what is a nice course. Unfortunately with so much competition in the area this where I would presume we would not be treated like this we will not be returning.

RobertDate Played: 01/10/2020
Great golf course and in excellent condition. Greens were a bit slow, but that rolled well. Being the in January and recent weather, I will allow a pass on the greens. This course has always been one of my favorites!
ArneDate Played: 01/03/2020
The course is great and my son visiting from Colorado loved it! Unfortunately we did have a problem at the turn. Anthony the starter meets us and says 2hrs for front nine that's great. I had to go to the pro shop to pay for the round as the computers were down earlier when we arrived. Took care of that and was getting hot dog when Anthony comes in and says "got to get to tee box right away"! Thought maybe he was joking but staff assured me he was not! Other than that the golf is great.

JamesDate Played: 10/23/2019
Our favorite course of the week. Beautiful very challenging course. You have to consider each tee shot with the dog legs and over hanging trees. Good tee shots give you reward you with an easy sit into the greens. The greens are pretty flat and roll true. It was my wife’s favorite course of the week also.
MarkDate Played: 10/08/2019
Nice layout. The course was in great condition. Several holes were challenging, but fair. My partner thought it was female-friendly, which is an important consideration as to where we play.

Course design/layout and overall views were great. Friendly staff. Fairways and tee boxes in great condition and the course is very easy to play...but the greens were very uneven and bumpy. Still highly recommend.
JeffDate Played: 06/18/2019
Awesome loved it ! You can hit your driver on every hole 🤗
RichardDate Played: 06/14/2019
Not in as good shape as a couple years ago. Many spots were very wet on the early holes (recent heavy rains) and many spots on the fairway were almost bare of grass. Staff was all very friendly and professional.
EDMUNDDate Played: 06/12/2019
EXCELLENT! Living in Michigan, there is an abundance of courses for play, the major difference is, the cost and the environment. Retired from the ARMY, I belong to a course on a military installation, however, any opportunity to visit/play the courses in the Myrtle Beach area, is always most welcome. Courses are excellent and the staff/personnel/environment for play, are always user friendly. We shall return.
TimDate Played: 06/11/2019
One of the best courses I have ever played in the Myrtle Beach area, and I've played nearly 50 over the years.
MatthewDate Played: 06/08/2019
Great course but pace of play was horrendous. 5 hour and 15 minute round: that needs to change moving forward
JohnDate Played: 06/07/2019
I was rained out and could not go to course for my rain check could you mail me my raincheck
PerryDate Played: 06/05/2019
Great experience. I love playing Willbrook! It is always in great shape. I find the course demanding for shot placement - if you aren't careful, you will end up with a tree blocking you or staring at at sandtrap guarding a tight pin placement.

Willbrook has been in my groups course rotation going on 10 years and I have to say we were somewhat disappointed this year. More than a few of the greens were in rough shape, fairways weren’t as plush a large precious years and the starter was quite rude.

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.

Great looking golf course. Great conditions tricky.
MichaelDate Played: 11/09/2018
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.

DonDate Played: 01/13/2018
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.

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

JOHNNYDate Played: 03/27/2017
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!
TimothyDate Played: 03/02/2017
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.
CharlesDate Played: 02/25/2017
Lots of water on the front. Island green. Great course in great condition.
Mike(Oneida,NY)Date Played: 02/20/2017
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.
JADate Played: 02/17/2017
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.

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.
BrendaDate Played: 11/10/2016
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.

BeastlybillDate Played: 09/01/2016
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.
DavidDate Played: 08/30/2016
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.
TonyDate Played: 08/15/2016

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.

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.
GaryDate Played: 01/04/2016
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.
BenjaminDate Played: 12/04/2015
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.

NancyDate Played: 11/01/2015
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.

The best course I've played in the area. Bring all your clubs. You can bomb it and will need precise shots as well. Southern charm at its best.
LeviDate Played: 08/20/2015
Beautiful course. Of the three courses I played while visiting, this one by far was the best. Staff in the clubhouse were friendly, and even got a cigar for the back nine. The views were great, holes were challenging but not too difficult. I will be playing this one again when I am back. The greens had been plugged on the 11th, and by today were about 85% back, but still rolled nice. I would like to play it when they are at 100%, but I still had a great time.

Course was in great condition and beautiful scenery as always. I played at 5:00 so didn't use the grill and starter wasn't there so I gave an n/a. Guy at the pro shop was super polite and friendly. Club has that beautiful old southern plantation charm. Always been one of my favorite places to play!
RickDate Played: 07/15/2015
I enjoyed playing this course and I would play it again. The starter deserves special recognition as he quickly made a decision to start my wife and I on the 10th tee instead of playing behind a large group of 6 foursomes. His quick decision allowed us to finish in 3 hours rather than the 4 1/2 hours it would have taken if he had placed us on the 1st tee at our original tee time. My only issue with the course was the grass on the tees was little too high.

Very nice golf facility. Good layout and fun golf course to play. Golf course in very good condition considering the summer heat is playing havoc with some of the local courses. Willbrook is planning aeration of the greens on 6/9/15. In a couple of weeks this golf course will be playing as well as most of the other golf courses in the area. Very nice, professional staff and with a nice grill and Pro Shop. I would recommend this golf club to anyone.
RichardDate Played: 06/07/2015
Course design is outstanding and challenging. Course condition was not so great. Tees and fairways were spotty with respect to grass. Greens rolled fairly well but were bumpy in spots probably due to ball marks previous groups didn't fix.
TimDate Played: 06/07/2015
I enjoyed the course. It was a fun layout. The historical markers were a nice touch. I would love to play it again on my next visit to Pawleys Island.

My wife found the course enjoyable and woman friendly. It was the most beautiful day of the year so far.
JohnDate Played: 04/24/2015
Great traditional course design. No gimmicks or convoluted hole layouts. Very enjoyable for the higher handicap players in our foursome.
BeverlyDate Played: 04/14/2015
It is our favorite of the area courses...love the natural surroundings.
LoraDate Played: 03/28/2015
Just a real nice experience being as it is built on a 1800 working plantation. Especially liked reading the plaques, very enlightening. Staff very friendly and helpful and welcoming. Our favorite course among all the nine games we played. Highly recommend playing here.

Great experience and can see why it's rated so highly so would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.
RobertDate Played: 03/24/2015
Trees in the fairway are a problem. Your ball hits the Spanish moss and drops like a stone. Cold and windy on the back.
PhilipDate Played: 03/21/2015
Love it now with GPS on the carts.
MikeDate Played: 03/19/2015
The course is challenging but quirky. Loved it and will play again.
TimothyDate Played: 03/19/2015
We had a nice day playing Willbrook. We had an afternoon tee time and got out a little early which is always nice. We saw a few gators and an Osprey diving for fish while were out. The course is in great shape at this time. GRASS on the greens is better than a lot of courses at this time of year. Pace of play was a little slow and no ranger in sight which took a little fun away because the group in front of us could not keep the pace. Overall it was a good experience.
DanielDate Played: 03/06/2015
I wish I knew before hand that the club overbooked the day so they had to start on both the 10th and 1st tees. I was taking someone out for the first time so I thought getting the last tee time for the day would have been perfect but the course was packed. We stopped after 11 holes because the wait on each hole was too long. Will not play Hillbrook again because of this.
JasonDate Played: 02/05/2015
If you want a place filled with elders that have zero golf etiquette that make you wait and wait, this is the place for you. The people playing must be clueless or too old to be aware of their surroundings, maybe they should learn to give up golf or learn how to play ready golf.....

BlaiseDate Played: 12/21/2014
Course was in great condition. For the novice player, the homes around the course were far enough away not to intimidate, but close enough to keep you aware of your ball striking to avoid wayward shots.
ThomasDate Played: 12/20/2014
Nice mixture of long and short, easier and more difficult holes. Beautifully maintained, surprisingly light play that afternoon.
DavidDate Played: 12/07/2014
Great course, I try to play it every time I'm in Myrtle Beach.
GordonDate Played: 11/09/2014
Everything was perfect. My son played the white tees and I played the senior tees. The replay round was very reasonable and we walked which we like.
RobertDate Played: 10/26/2014
Fun layout! Challenging but not overly penal. Wide landing areas off the tee! Wives really enjoyed the course! Greens were shaggy and slow. Maybe in transition between seasons? Would definitely play again!
RobertDate Played: 10/16/2014
Everything was OK.
AnthonyDate Played: 10/09/2014

FredrickDate Played: 11/15/2013
THE SELECTION OF SHIRTS AND HATS IN THE CLUBHOUSE WAS GLARINGLY INDEQUATE. HTE FEW ITEMS AVAILABLE WERE UNATTRACTIVE. I CANNOT EVEN SPEAK TO THE FAIRNESS OF YOUR PRICING...AS I NEVER GOT THAT FAR.
LucDate Played: 11/05/2013
Beautiful trees. Fair challenge. Greens were hard to put. Not the best deal in town.
DonDate Played: 11/05/2013
We played the gold tees because we didn't know the course. Some of us would like to come back and play the white tees. The course is beautiful!
LaganDate Played: 08/20/2013
This golf course is in great shape. I like the layout and it is a fun golf course to play. Greens were nice speed and in good shape. Fun place to play with good friends and the people who work here were helpful and made you feel welcome. I'll play here again.
WilliamDate Played: 07/25/2013
Nice layout, not crowded, course in great condition. Beer is way too expensive.
JeffreyDate Played: 07/11/2013
Very nice course. Staff was helpful and informative. I would like to know ahead of time IF we will be paired-up with other golfers. Willbrook is a great golf experience.
RobertDate Played: 06/24/2013
Tee boxes need work. Lots of bare spots. Would have been nice to know greens were recently aerated.
DavidDate Played: 05/29/2013
Delightfully surprised by the positive experience, including all aspects above that I just rated. Only downfall was a crowded tee sheet, which made for a slow round. Nothing anyone could do as marshalls were out enforcing best they could. Would definitely return and recommend to any friends in the area.
SteveDate Played: 05/29/2013
It is a beautiful layout and has some challenging holes. The downside is speed of play. No marshall on the course.
BrianDate Played: 05/28/2013
The course layout is fabulous. The course is very playable and women friendly. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful.
DonaldDate Played: 05/21/2013
Slow play. No ranger to keep pace of play steady. Group of seniors in front of us refuse to let us through the entire round. Had cart attendant and pro shop staff tell us that the beverage cart is on the course, although we never saw it the entire round. Course was in great shape but the staff needed more training. I'd play it again if they got new employees.
EdDate Played: 05/13/2013
How much water came into play. I had two beginners with me and it affected the playability of the course for them
CarrollDate Played: 05/06/2013
Staff was great. I played years ago, and forgot that trouble was reachable from the tee on some holes after hitting a what looked like a good shot. All in all a good experience, inspite of my score.

Staff was friendly and accommodating while providing rain check
RayDate Played: 11/28/2012

UdoDate Played: 10/25/2012
Great course in great shape.
AlbertDate Played: 10/24/2012
Disappointed that my credit card was charged the full amount of the four tee times. And not just held so the four players could pay for their own tee times individually. So now I have to collect the cost of the tee times from everybody and carry all this cash around. Will not use this web site for tee times, and will let others know about it.
DavidDate Played: 09/04/2012
I have property in the Pawleys Island area and play the courses on a regular basis including Caledonia, River Club, Tradition and Reserve (with a member). Got rained out at River Club but thought their staff was particularly accommodating and courteous.
DanielDate Played: 08/16/2012
Beautiful course, friendly staff. My family and I completely enjoyed the day. One of the best courses in MB. Even though the course is becoming better known, the staff is remaining extremely friendly and goes out of their way to make your day a wonderful experience.
WayneDate Played: 08/14/2012
My experience to play this course with my 10-year-old son was just great. All the staff was helpful and courteous. Even though the course was very soggy from all the recent rains they still had the carts at 90 degrees to make the round enjoyable rather no carts on fairways.
JoeDate Played: 08/05/2012
The course came highly recommended to me by some local folks as well as very favorable online reviews; I booked a round. I was staying over an hour away. But, figured ... what the heck ... great course ... no problem. Well, right after I booked the round, I received my confirmation. I was informed of the greens and fairways being aerated. Obviously, this needs to be done. I just wish I would have known before I booked. In fairness to the course, the guy in the pro shop said he could get me on another course if I wanted. It was a nice course/layout. Thanks.
StevenDate Played: 07/30/2012
A wonderful experience ... great conditions, great service, a lot of unique holes - including a short island green. Not to mention the wildlife. Saw a few alligators. Definitely would go again.
BillDate Played: 07/10/2012
We loved playing in Myrtle Beach. Of the 7 times we played 3 were at Willbrook. That's how much we liked it! We'll be back.
PaulDate Played: 07/02/2012
Greens were in excellent shape. Active marshaling of course so played in 4 hours on hottest day of year so far. Nice feature to have would be cold water towels to cool off with.

Great set-up, lots of water & sand in play. Course was in great condition, despite recent rain.
GlennDate Played: 05/23/2012
Second time we played Willbrook in a couple of years. Course conditions were not as good this time around. Carts not available at check in (<1 hr), and we did not like the long walk from the clubhouse to the range. We also found out why the ladies like this course so much ... < 4,800 yards! They play half the course and a group of them were on our rears all day while we waited on the group of guys in front of us. A test for the men, easy for women.
JanieDate Played: 05/23/2012
Beautiful course. Starter was crabby. He fussed at us for letting a twosome start before us when he was supposed to be in charge of who started.
AaronDate Played: 05/19/2012
The course was great! This was our second time playing the the course and was not let down. Tee boxes were a little rough and greens were a little bumpy.
DonDate Played: 05/19/2012
Fun golf course - fair and in good condition. Staff was excellent with the unusual exception of the senior starter at the 1st tee box who seemed annoyed to be there. I will certainly be back.
DanielDate Played: 05/15/2012
Very nice course, first time we played it. Will be back for sure.
KentDate Played: 05/05/2012
Nice layout but a little dry around the edges. Drought ... yes, I know but other high end courses were fine..

TomDate Played: 04/19/2012
Service was top-notch.
DarrenDate Played: 04/10/2012
Very playable layout. Course is right here in front of you. Greens are quite sloped, so you may have some quick downhill putts! Good practice area. Greens on front 9 had been punched, but it did not effect the speed or roll of the ball. Greens were receptive & a fair speed. Tees & fairways were excellent. Pulled pork sandwich at the turn was great. Staff very accommodating & friendly. It is a favorite of our group & we will definitely play it again.
JonathanDate Played: 04/01/2012
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, but at Willbrook Plantation they should allow carts in the fairway on 18th hole as it slows the finish quite a bit ...
ThomasDate Played: 03/31/2012
I sent out an e-mail to all my golf buddies that evening to tell them that this is a must-play.
GeorgeDate Played: 03/30/2012
Course condition good. Grill service not up to par for a top-ranked course.

Due to the fantastic azalea bloom, I felt it was a mini Augusta National. I loved the course!
BobDate Played: 03/21/2012
Played here on 3/7/12 for the first time. I really enjoyed the course. The set-up offered sufficient challenges. Greens were very good. Definitely on the list to play again.
AndyDate Played: 03/20/2012
My group and I played 36 holes here Friday, March 16, 2012. On the very first tee, the first person to tee off decided to hit another shot off the tee because he wanted to loosen up. The starter came up to the tee box yelling at us that at this course only one tee shot is permitted and that if he wanted to hit another ball, the driving range was over there. He said we were already a group behind which is odd because we had to wait 10 minutes on the tee box for the golfers in front of us to get out of the way. We also had a tee time that we had already reserved there so we didn't have to worry about not being able to get a replay. We were told we would have to turn our carts in and then get another cart when we only had a few minutes between tee times. All in all, a very disappointing experience from all of the staff at Willbrook and we will not be playing there ever again.
TimothyDate Played: 03/11/2012
Nice staff. Course in typical early spring condition.
SteveDate Played: 03/10/2012
This is an excellent course which golfers at any level would be comfortable playing. Unfortunately, we had a late tee time and ended up behind several very slow groups, and were unable to finish our round.
TimothyDate Played: 02/04/2012
A very good course with very nice people running it. I will be back. I was a little hesitant to book after reading a few reviews about thin fairways. I found the fairways in good shape for February. I would say this is one of better courses of the 10 that I have played since January.
FrankDate Played: 01/24/2012
Continues to be one of my favorites on the entire East Coast and my favorite on my Myrtle Beach golf vacation. Great layout and in wonderful shape every time I play here. The staff is always exceptional from Kevin in the pro shop, to Moe on the bag drop; the staff is always helpful. I forgot my $560 range finder last time and Moe waved me down before I left the parking lot to get it to me. Most places you would never see that thing again ... but not @ Willbrook. I can't wait to go back again in May!
LouiseDate Played: 01/24/2012
Great scenery. Historic plaque on old plantation. Nice course. Good shape. Things to see everywhere. Different setting to each hole. Warm and welcoming service. Fairways could be in better condition, however. Will come back for sure.
RobertDate Played: 01/04/2012
Had a 9 a.m. tee time booked in advance and was bumped because I was told the groups in front of me did not wish to play with someone they did not know. They were not even members. I watched two threesomes advance to the tee while I sat. Man in pro shop told me that everyone wins. Fortunately I was paired with a member who I enjoyed playing with. Great course! Every hole is a work of art. Will definitely play again.
MaryDate Played: 01/04/2012
This is a great layout, and in the past our experience has been with the course in excellent condition, but we were disappointed at the thin fairways, and many greens that were not up to the normal standard there. Always enjoy it there, but if we had known the current condition of the course, we would have opted to play TPC instead. No one mentioned anything about the course condition prior to our play. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great like it normally is, either.
CarlDate Played: 11/28/2011
Was cold and the course was wet, but was still good, considering the cold and wet fairways.

We enjoyed the course despite the wet conditions. Would definitely play it again.
JasonDate Played: 10/14/2011
Really enjoyed the course. Tee boxes need to be more level, and sand down in the trap not all pushed up around the edges would help. Other than that had a great time. Got good tips on how to play the course and information wildlife etc. from Moe and Tom (I think that was their names). All staff was nice and the grill had good food despite what some reviews had said in the past. My buddies and I have decided that this will be a course we play every time we come down every 3 or 4 months. Thanks, Willbrook!
KennethDate Played: 09/29/2011
Great course with a great staff. There were two specific employees who made my experience even more enjoyable with their knowledge of the course, recommendations on how to play it, and just overall politeness. Thank Mo and Chow (hope I spelled that right). Great course one of my favorites on the EAST COAST!

CharlesDate Played: 06/01/2011
The course was in great shape, the employees were very hospitable, but the schedule of players was not properly worked well. We were sent off the back 9 which was playing slowly, but the front 9 was SO VERY SLOW! We had to sometimes wait 15 to 20 minutes between shots which made it very difficult to get in a rhythm and it hurt my scoring. :(
ScottDate Played: 03/25/2011

CarolDate Played: 10/23/2010
The course provided an enjoyable golf experience. The oaks along the fairways were beautiful. The starter was a little less than charming but not rude. I found the fairways to be generous and there were several holes that allowed short hitters like myself to par. There were a couple of holes that forced me to lay up to the water because my tee shots weren't quite long enough to enable me to carry the water on my second shot, but once again, I am not a long hitter. This course was very pretty and very fair.
SteveDate Played: 10/16/2010
Played yesterday, found to be very enjoyable. Pace of play was fine and the course was in fine condition. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Will play again.

HarryDate Played: 07/09/2010
We love playing Willbrook. The course is usually in great shape, the staff is friendly and it is a very woman-friendly course, which my wife likes. We only played once on this trip and we picked Willbrook. Unfortunately it rained the night before and the fairways were really wet. However, we still enjoyed our round.
D.Date Played: 06/13/2010
Beautiful course, make sure to play from the correct tee for your handicap. Enjoy the outdoors.
GaryDate Played: 05/01/2010
1. Starter had an attitude problem. 2. The cross-over from 9 to 10 was unacceptable. After not waiting for anyone on the front 9, we had at least 30 minute wait to tee off on 10 and then wait every shot. Too many people!
DeniseDate Played: 04/26/2010
Beautiful course with wide landing areas. Challenging, yet not too challenging. Only complaint: wish we had known about the bugs because we would have brought bug spray.

DickieDate Played: 10/06/2009
Wow, what a course! First visit for all 8 of us and we loved the place right from the start as we entered the parking lot at the bag drop! Southern hospitality at it's greatest! From the bag guys to the snack bar girls and the pro, this place was awesome! Course was beautiful and the holes were all different! Water, traps and turns made it a thinking man's place to score well. Greens were great and fairways were marked well. These guys want your business and made us feel wanted as guests, and that was nice. The pro was very helpful and comped us at the bar for a round of beers! We will now put this place on our list as a definite spot to play!

Course played long from the blue tees (it was wet). Greens and fairways were great. I don't like the double booking until 9:30; it should stop before 9:00. I had to wait 40 minutes to go off the back 9.
BuddyDate Played: 07/29/2009
My wife and I played several courses in the area in the time we were there. Of all the courses we played, Willbrook was the best track and in the best condition of any of them. We were impressed with the welcome we received from the pro shop to starters. We will definitely put Willbrook on our list for our next visit.

SteveDate Played: 02/23/2009
Enjoyable round, beautiful course and I enjoyed the signage describing the history of the plantation. Greens were very dry yet the fairways were quite wet from the rain. Thought the greens would be in a bit better condition. Also, I thought the grill area was a little too basic and scaled back when compared to the course and clubhouse.
