With 90 golf courses, the number of choices in Myrtle Beach can seem endless and for those unfamiliar with the market, determining why you want to play one course over another can be daunting. But we are here to help.
If your group is trying to decide whether to play Willbrook Plantation on your next Myrtle Beach golf trip, here are five reasons playing the Dan Maples design should be a priority.
— The Pawleys Island course enjoys a beautiful piece of lowcountry property, allowing golfers to play among the stunning live oak trees people have come to associate with South Carolina’s lowcountry. The visuals are unforgettable and an essential part of what makes the layout so enjoyable.
— Willbrook doesn’t attract the attention of its high profile neighbors such as Caledonia and Pawleys Plantation, but it’s a good golf course that comes at a fraction of the price. Willbrook is the type of layout that can be the difference between a good golf trip and a great one with the quality and value it delivers.
— Looking for memories? Willbrook creates them. Golfers don’t forget No. 1, a daunting par 4 that is among the area’s toughest openers, the par 3, island green sixth hole, and No. 18, which provides a memorable finish. Best of all, that’s just scratching the surface.
— Many golfers from more northern locales enjoy the opportunity to see alligators and Willbrook has a surplus of the prehistoric creatures, including one monster that reportedly approaches 13 feet in length. For those who are fearful gators, rest easy because these reptiles have no interest in coming after you. Enjoy the view from a safe distance and all will be good.
— I referenced it earlier, but the value at Willbrook is difficult to beat, particularly if your group is playing the course as part of a package like the Founders Group All-Inclusive, which includes free range balls, lunch and two draft beers. Walk-in tee times start at $53 and that’s a hard price to beat for a 4.5-star layout that delivers the beauty and design Willbrook offers.
A round at Willbrook won’t disappoint.
