Built upon an old rice plantation originally developed in the 1700s, Willbrook Plantation exudes more than just the game visitors here now come to enjoy.
The course features six historical markers illuminating a deep, and often trying, history of the land that in recent years has be turned into a round worthy of being honored as a top-50 national course for women and a consistent 4.5-star honoree in Golf Digest’s Places to Play. Opened in 1988, Dan Maples design put all the live oaks to use in the Lowcountry design, one that has water on 15 of the 18 holes and very much in play on at least half of those.
“He’ll give you a challenging hole,” head professional Kevin McGuire said of Maples. “If you don’t do well, he’ll give you a couple holes to let you get your head back in the game.”
The sixth hole, depending on how it is played, can be considered both ends of the spectrum. The green lies no more than 127 yards from any of the current sets of tees. However, the island landing zone is protected on all four sides - save for the wooden bridge connecting golfers to the green.

We had to wait 40 minutes at the turn because the course didn't properly plan for a ladies tournament. We spend the last half of our round waiting 5-10 minutes on every tee and fairway shot due to the group in front of us. Starter and Marshall acted as though our group was the problem and offered no apologies, concern or sense of urgency. This was my 4th time playing this course and will likely be my last. Staff here has always been pretentious and rude.

Decent course. Nice place to start a trip. Not to hard but not the bombshell of the trip.

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.

Greens were so so.

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

Played it a few years ago, and found it good previously. This time I found it GREAT!!!
Greens were very quick for Myrtle. About an 11 on the stimp, which is as fast as I've played anywhere in MB. Conditions of tees, fairways & greens were above & beyond my expectations. I played it the day my group was flying in. Next year Willbrook will be on our agenda !!!!

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

Willbrook Plantation was the best course we played out of the eight courses we played.
With the Summer Olympiad soon to unfold in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the world of golf has gone a bit nutty for torches, medals, five-ring logos and all that good Olympic stuff. To put a cherry on top of it all, we’ve decided to present this whiz-bang Myrtle Beach travel article with, you guessed it, an Olympic theme.
Out on the course, a few light beers from the drink cart or out of the cooler you hope isn't dripping on your clubs hits the spot. For some, the hours after the round are about finding something more: Better drinks, better food, better environment.
Courses from North Myrtle Beach to Pawleys Island are among the “hottest”-trending courses in Myrtle Beach golf, according to the most recent reviews submitted by visiting golfers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider.
