Golf Club At Wescott Plantation - Oak Forest Course
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.

I reviewed this course before and noted in the review that the bunkers turned from sand hazards into water hazards every time it rains. They recently redid all of the bunkers on this 27 hole course. They now drain well and are much improved.
We were only able to play nine. Rain came in. Unfortunately we booked as a hot deal so golf course could not give rain check. I guess you get what you pay for. I don’t think I will be using hot deals going forward.
Friendly Place and Good Course
I play Wescott whenever I’m in the Charleston area. It’s a welcoming place with three nines—one of which was unfortunately closed for work being completed. They are sinking some money into the place redoing the bunkers. Because the one nine was closed we experienced some slow play. But we still enjoyed the course. It’s well worth a visit. Shout out to Maggie the starter. She is a gem.
Course was well groomed
The course was in good shape considering all the rain that had occurred recently. So it was cart path only and the fairways and fringe was very saturated. But it was a pleasant round of golf nonetheless.
Great course, enjoyable play
The greens were near perfect and the course layout made for enjoyable play. The staff was friendly and the starter paired me with a group that plays every Sunday. The fairways are wide open so you can really gets some distance
Don’t play here if it has recently rained.
Sun was shining but the last two days were rainy. I played here before and the course was fast with lots of hazards (water, bunkers and the like). It was a good experience. The last two days was A lot of rain. There were large puddles in the fairway and most of the bunkers. The ground does not drain well because there is too much clay in the soil. If you went into a bunker you would likely lose your ball because the water does not drain and is a brownish color. I paid for a full round but could not enjoy fishing to (not) find my ball in a bunker. I quit after nine holes. Do not play here if it has recently rained.
I was a single got paired with a fun group and had a good dog at the turn.
Unfortunately there was a tournament going on so I only got to play Oaks twice. Don’t get me wrong it was an amazing course and fun to play. Just wished I could have tried a different course.
Three courses, all fun and challenging. Lots of wild life and beauty while hunting for errant shots!
This course has 3 nines of which I played two. The course is rather open with wide fairways. The greens on the first nine had been recently top dressed, so they didn't roll true. The greens on the back side, however, did roll true with average speed. It was worth the money I paid.
Nice course for the money
The course wasn’t in the best shape due to all the rain and the recent aerating of the greens. But it is a nice course with wide fairways and good greens. The staff, especially Maggie, were welcoming and a good resource.
Great course in N Charleston, SC
This is a course you have to try if you are in South Carolina, especially the N Charleston / Summerville area. They have three different 9 hole courses that combine for very enjoyable golf. The course was in great shape while other courses in the area have dried up. Greens were true, fairways cut well, and it's only moderately challenging (which I liked). Try it, you'll like it.
