Amid one of the fastest-growing parts of South Carolina’s Grand Strand lies a golf course that feels like anything but.
Sure, Wild Wing Golf Plantation is no longer the four-course mega site it used to be. However, with the remaining Avocet 18 and the Hummingbird nine, the course has found that an advantage is the closures truly did exist.
“Once you get out on the course, it’s like a reserve. There’s no housing. You’re out in the middle of nature,” General Manager Rick Schultz said. “You have a lot of unique holes with mounding. You’re surrounded by wildlife. There are a lot of holes where you don’t see a lot of other people. You kind of forget you’re in Myrtle Beach.”
What isn’t lost, be it a standard round on the Avocet or adding in the Hummingbird for a full 27 holes, is a no-frills approach to the game accompanied by some pristine surfaces capable of hosting tournament play. The eye-popping No. 15 encapsulates that in a single hole. The final par five of the day includes three bunkers hugging the edges of a fairway that eventually leads into a pond while oversized pines line the extended deep rough.

The course was in great shape. The bag staff was MIA. We had to get a cart and load our own clubs.

Beautiful course. The rolling mounds around the greens made for a lot of fun and challenging play. A little disappointed that the greens has been airated but I understand the need. I'll play the course again. Great friendly staff.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. The pro shop is HUGE and has a ton of great stuff. Not too mention the course was in phenomenal shape, some of the best Bermuda grass greens I have played on. Definitely a place to visit!

Played Avocet as part of family reunion. The six of us had a great time! Course is in great shape, beverage cart service was phenomenal, staff in pro shop was great. The pub was very nice with good food and COLD beer on a 100 degree day. Will definitely return and highly recommend this course. Probably the one thing that could improve are the cart path conditions.

The golf course was great the rest of the experience was very poor. No cart girl no players club no way to get drinks on 100+ heat index only water on course was by number 7 hole by that time we were over heated.

I would have liked to know that I could not get my money back when one person in my 3 some was injured and could not make the tee time. I had to pay anyway. The pro shop attendant stated that I could get a VOUCHER for that missing person but NO money back....how about that for business? I payed for a product that I did not receive. I promise I will never recommend Ambassador to anyone. I golf around the country and have not encountered this treatment before. Very disappointed with this experience. The golf course was exceptional though.

Course was wet, but played great. greens were a little slow after aerifying and rain. My son and I had a great time.

Very nice layout, heavy rain the night before but course was still nice. A must play. Will visit again in the fall.
