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.

Very Nice Course Overall

Course is setup as 3x9 holes, so you'll have to visit twice to play all 36. We've played twice and it has been a lot of fun. The clubhouse is great and the greens are very nice and challenging (Caution - there are some par 3s that are very deceptive). Overall a nice layout, nice employees, and fun course to play.

Monsoon

Sadly Charleston has been having heavy rains for extended days. Weather is beyond everyone’s control. So the course was extremely wet and we certainly had to wash off the mud splatter, but the course was well laid out, everyone was beyond accommodating, and we snuck in some golf before the weekend that is predicted to rain... a lot!

Summerville golf

An interesting set up with three 9 hole courses. The day we played was cart path only due to the rain. The only criticism is that the bunker drains are clearly blocked on some holes as they were full of water.

Greens in great shape and the general condition of the course is good. I will definitely play there again

Always delivers

Course was in great shape. Unlike some local courses, greens ame through winter in great shape. Just off early summer aeration, about three weeks ago, and coming in nicely. Course is always well maintained. Fairways long and generous. Usually see wildlife, hawks, deer, wading birds and the occasional small gator. Staff is always helpful.

Great local course

Although there was an advisory for aerated greens, the greens were in good shape and rolled true. Scenic forests and wetlands surround course and even saw a swallowtailed kite on Black Robin. One of my favorite local courses.
