The Golf Club at Westcott Plantation is a 27-hole course that is situated within one of the area's oldest plantations. The beauty of the Lowcountry is evident throughout the golf course with centuries-old oak trees framing all the layouts and lush vegetation along every hole. The names of the courses: Oak Forest, Burn Kill, and Black Robin, all have origins in the plantation's history. Burn Kill is tighter off the tees than Oak Forest, but more generous than Black Robin. The golf course has a classic bunkering style and there are streams, ponds, and wetlands interspersed throughout for added challenge. The 8th hole is one of the most unique holes of the entire course. On this par 3, the black and blue tees attack the green from a completely different angle than the white, green, and red.

"Slow Play"

I did not really enjoy the round because all of the slow play. When we made the turn we had 8 carts in front of us to play Oak and that should not happen.

This course has a great layout with a variety of hole types. The fairways are wide enough that the amateur golfer will not lose too many golf balls in the woods.

Greens are in fantastic conditions, and the fairways are nice as well.

Was not able to play due to rain. Booked hot deal through Golfnow. They will not give rain check. Need policy change. Course gets paid whether I play or not. The least Golfnow and the course could do, would be to credit the hot deal cost towards a regular price green free at a later date. Not looking for something for nothing, just looking for what's fair. Why should a frequent Golfnow customer be punished for bad weather. Makes me want to no longer use Golfnow. BE FAIR with your customer!!!!!!

This was our penultimate round on our Charleston/Hilton Head golf trip. Had we played here first we would have likely found time for another round or two. The clubhouse is an extremely cool plantation style building. The fairways were on par with the best we saw on the trip and the greens were fantastic! There were some definite risk reward holes and plenty of water to keep you off balance. Everyone was very helpful and they went out of their way to put our foursome together (we had to book two separate twosomes). This was a fantastic find and we will definitely be back in the future!!!

The staff were very hospitable from pro shop to starter. The course was in good shape, doglegs, layups and water made it challenging, but fun. Pretty course.

Played Round Robin on the back. - same conditions and fun to play.

We enjoyed playing this course. The layout offer good challenge and the greens were very fast and always undulated. We like that. It was a nice sunny day but the wind was a bit on the cool side.

Using a great coupon code I played 18 for less than 5 bucks! All 3 nines are great and greens were surprisingly good and fast for this time of the year. Can't say enough about it for the money!
