Situated in the heart of Lowcountry, the Golf Club at Wescott Plantation is part of one of the area's oldest plantations. There are 27 holes of golf available at the club, which are divided into three nine-hole courses: Oak Forest, Burn Kill, and Black Robin. Although each golf course has a different character and scenery, they are all dappled with centuries-old live oaks and wetlands. The Oak Forest Course takes its name from the original plantation and has wider fairways than the other two courses. Lush vegetation frames each hole and the classic bunkering embodies the traditional feel of the course. The eighth hole is the signature hole of the entire golf course, distinct for both its scenery and difficulty. Par will be tough on this par 3 with a lake bordering the entire left side.

Nice Layout

This course could be a lot of fun. The conditions were terrible but may be it’s the time of year. Dead Bermuda with hard pan underneath. Tee boxes were mostly dirt. Greens rolled pretty nice.

Great experience

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, Clubs unloaded & directions to pro shop where the staff was attentive and helpful. Nice practice range with extra balls lying around for a quick warm up.
Played the challenging course with 2 young USAF gentlemen. Fairways bunkers came into play way too often for my game, but overall course conditions were great. Considering the beautiful weather and number of golfers pace was excellent.

Nice course

Course in good shape considering it's end of winter, course doesn't punish for minor mis-hits but does punish for just plain bad shots. Good selection of tees. Staff friendly, especially at the bag drop off

Nice layout and really good greens!

Pleasant round with friends on a cool and breezy day. The greens here are first rate but in stark contrast the tee boxes are terrible. I know it’s early in the golf season but it doesn’t look like any attention is being given to the tees. Fairways are just ok but I’m sure they will improve when dormant grass starts to grow. Come on ! Give the tees some love too.

Consistant quality

Played Black Robin and Burn Kill nines this time around. This course actually has one more nine, Oak Forest, which I did not play this trip. That is one of the strongest points,it seems like you always get always different look. The course is usually in good playable condition with nice greens and good fairways. This trip, grass is still dormant in the fairways and they are still soft from recent rains. In the winter the dormant grass does not suck the moisture out of the ground like it does in the summer. Sometime sun alone is insufficient for a fast dry. Overall though the course was in good shape. Staff was, as usual, very friendly and responsive to needs. Course itself has a reasonable level of difficulty for the average golfer. A little of everything, water carries, marsh in the way, and a few bunkers that jump up and bite you and length. I enjoy it. This course is a true municipal course that gives back to the residents through support of programs like First Tee, Drive,Pitch and Putt, PGA Hope for Veterans, High School and College support and various leagues.

Poor Conditions

This was the least enjoyable round I've played in the Charleston area. The course was wet and muddy from start to finish – the tee boxes, the fairways, the rough, and, most annoyingly, all around the green. Approach shots that should have rolled upon landing instead got plugged up. Several sand traps were mud traps. There were also no ball washers on the entire course. Today was Cart Path Only, which wasn't made clear until I had already paid for a cart, and it would have been easier to just walk. Just close the course if the conditions are this poor.

We are so sorry to find that we disappointed you on your visit. During the winter months, most of the golf course vegetation drifts into dormancy while the temperatures are too low to produce growth. Thus, the grasses have no need for water. Our fairways are clay-based (which like to retain water), whereas our greens are sand-based (and drain very well). The course must rely on winds from the north to realistically dry the fairways and rough. The sun is lower on the horizon and produces a lessened heat intensity that does not encourage rapid (if any!) evaporation during the winter months. The historical monthly rainfall average for December is 3.1”. This year our rain gauges indicated 10.4” of rainfall during this period- more than three times the normal average. Mother Nature was on a weekly pattern that would produce excessive amounts of rain that compounded throughout the month and never gave us an opportunity to dry out and get our heads above the water! (Yes, the bad pun was intended!)

January averages approximately 3.5” of rainfall. Through yesterday (Jan 26th, 2019) we have seen 2.25”, with more rain expected in a few days, so we are still not having adequate opportunities to dry out. During this time period, the golf course has indeed suffered and we apologize that your experience was not up to par.

Course should have been closed

Course was a complete wet mess, almost every step was a “squash, squash, squash”. With a lot of traffic later in the day l’m sure the fairways were well chewed up. The tee boxes were all messy with many of the markers placed in the rough in front or behind the flat areas. This was a total waste of my money and day.

Poor course conditions

We played Black Robin and Oak Forest. It has rained more than a normal December but it hasn’t rained but maybe a slight amount over the last week or so. There was standing water throughout the course including the fairways and tee boxes. Black Robin was way worse than the 9 holes at Oak Forest but Oak still had several bad holes with soggy fairways. The range was also closed because of the water. This course simply does not dry up for a very long time after some rain.

Not impressed

Played Wescott because reviews made it sound like a quality course, well maintained, and in good condition. It was none of the above. It’s claim of not being like most muni’s is just simply not the case. The course layout is mundane. Not one hole stood out as a well designed or interesting hole. The fairways and rough were sparse, especially for a southern coastal course. The grreens were decent, but an invasive weed was present on all of them, causing putting to be less than ideal. The part of my experience that was the most disappointing was that every tee box was littered with about a hundred broken tees. That just lets me know that neither the staff nor the regular players care much about their course. It’s too bad this Charleston area public course is so bad. I guess I’ll play Wild Dunes or Kiawah next time I visit the area.
