Willbrook Plantation

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.

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

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, youll enjoy playing off green grass all year. One of the best values in the area.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Willbrook Plantation
by Beastlybill -
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.

Willbrook Plantation
by David (Sumter, SC) -
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.

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.

by Gary (Cornelius, NC) -
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.

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.

by Nancy (Morristown, NJ) -
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.

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.

by Rick (North Charleston, SC) -
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.

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.

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.

Willbrook Plantation
by Daniel (Mount Kisco, NY) -
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.

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.....
