The Golf Club at Westcott Plantation may be owned by the city of North Charleston but it is far from being your typical municipal course. The 27-hole layout is divided into three nines: Black Robin, Burn Kills, and Oak Forest. They each take their name from the plantation's long history, it's one of the oldest in the area. Care was taken to preserve the centuries-old live oaks and pristine wetlands that are scattered throughout the entire course. Black Robin is the tightest of the three nines with small greens that make it the most challenging as well. Every hole is framed by lush vegetation and various streams, ponds, and wetlands come into play throughout the course. The golf course ends with a welcome chance for a birdie in case you didn't fare too well on the tougher preceding holes.

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.

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.

Liked the course a lot. Fairways great. Greens would have been but still recovering from aeration.The only negative was the guys who came out on #9 to tell me it was cart path only. No one told me when I checked in and there were no signs. It was a steam bath mid-afternoon so I wasn’t going to voluntarily do it. The guy was not very friendly about it? Maybe he needs some Starbucks training? Other than that it was great

Played Burn Kill and Black Robin 9's. Did not play Oak Forest. One of the strengths of this course is having three nines. Never know which two you will use or in which order. Adds variety. Course was is great shape tee to green. Staff is super. Bar and restaurant are top knotch and full service. As the review title says, this course "always delivers".

I frequently tell people from out of town that as avid "weekend" golfer I don't become a member anywhere because this area has so much good golf to offer. I find myself back at Wescott again and again. Best value around, and with 3x 9 holes, it breaks up the motonany of playing the same place over and over. This has become the place I play most often, and I work hard for my money and like to think I spend it wisely.
