Been wanting to check this one off my list for a while and I'm sorry I didn't do it sooner. It is now in my top 5 and will be bringing the fellas here when they come down. I played in the afternoon so it wasn't crowded at all. I've got nothing bad to say about this place. The course was in fantastic shape from tee to green. One of the most eye pleasing courses down here. Huge oaks with Spanish moss hanging, picturesque holes, and it's on a former plantation so there is some ( albeit not very good ) History here. There are plaques throughout the course detailing information about the place. I found it to be a challenging but fair course with some water hazards and well placed bunkers. The rough hadn't greened up yet so I guess if I was gonna get picky(and I'm not cause who cares about rough?) but every part of the fairways and greens was as green as St. Patty. The greens held all types of shots and rolled sweet. Get yourself down here to play this course. You won't be disappointed!

Played here Thursday over my Litchfeild beach trip and wow! The staff was very friendly and accommodating and helpful from the time I checked in. The course was designed by Dan Maples in 1988. (Great course designer). The course isn't overly long but it's not exactly short. The course had a great restraunt which had more great staff.

The course itself was very nice with a good amount of water. The only thing I would complain about would be the bunkers that where a little wet. The rough was healthy and greens rolled true. I also appreciated the fact that they had a great range and practice facility. The trees on the course where buetiful and loved the whole scenery of the course. The course is a little expensive but would still reccomend the course.

I personally think this course is slightly overrated, don't get me wrong, it is definitely a nice place. However, nothing here really stands out or will blow you away. This is just a good place to get in a peaceful round of golf. When you compare it to many other South Strand courses in the area, it doesn't do much to make me want to go back. Just an average course in a beautiful area to golf.

Myself and one buddy played the course and found it to be just great. I had played it once before but didn't recall how great a course it really is. The fairways are wide and forgiving but there are plenty of trees, bunkers, water hazards and rough areas to challenge you throughout the course. The greens roll true and consistent throughout the round. The sand traps are in great shape. I cannot think of a single negative thing to comment about. I've played a lot of courses in the Pawley's Island, SC area and Willbrook Plantation is as good as any of them and there are several good ones in that area. HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone coming to the area to put this course on your list of places to play at least one round. You will not be disappointed.

We've been coming to this course for over 10 years as part of our Litchfield golf package. Our group of 8 always puts this on our list because the course conditions are the best. Compared to our experience at the much higher priced Caledonia this course was in better condition with the fairways and tee boxes dry (Caledonia was a mud pit) and allowing 90 degree carts even after considerable rain. The course is challenging from the whites and the wind made it even more so. The staff is very accommodating and professional. Very scenic layout in a gated community that obviously considers the upkeep of the course as a positive. We will be returning again next year,

We have played Willbrook several times in the past 8 years and it is always an enjoyable experience. The fairways are open for the most part and the greens are usually true. On this particular date, the greens were recovering from aeration, so that was a drawback, as well as being told it was cart path only after a severe rain storm the day before. As luck would have it, the ranger came out on the first hole and told us they had made it 90 degrees for the afternoon, so that was nice.

Course is challenging and in excellent condition. We had novice players ahead of us, unreasonably slowing down play, and rangers moved them off the course.

Staff was cordial and informative. Coffee was expensive. Greens had lots of undulations and a lot of grain. Signage to find hole 1 was not completely clear. Distances to greens were well marked. Course was undergoing a lot of maintenance.
