Pawleys Plantation Golf Course

*** Closed until 6/21/2021

The Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club is a reflection of plantation golf at its best. This Jack Nicklaus Signature designed course opened in 1988, and features an 18-hole course with a slope rating of 140, and moss-covered tall oak trees hovering over the landscape. Traditional golf design makes Pawleys Plantation Club a golfer’s haven. This historical site is a must play and is deemed to be one of the most prestigious golf courses along the Grand Strand. This Lowcountry setting affords golfers the ability to experience southern charm as they golf in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Pawleys Plantation Golf Course

Nicklaus created the course with no shot the same. Skillfully positioned undulations, cunningly placed bunkers, and an abundance of water hazards adds the bells and whistles to Pawleys Plantation. Golfers must play with a keen eye and strategize every shot since this course demands concentration. TifEagel greens and a gentle slope provide ease to a golfer’s stroke. The coastal scenery of this Myrtle Beach golf course is breathtaking. Be careful not to be distracted as you play the Par 3’s at the back nines. The 13th hole is surrounded by marshland and has a reputation for challenging all golfers.

Located at the southern end of the Grand Strand, this plantation golf resort offers a professional clubhouse, restaurant, pro shop, golf school, and more amenities. After you finish playing 18 holes, head into the restaurant where you can enjoy a cool beverage. Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club also offer a variety of tee times to fit any schedule. Need accommodations, great food, and a full day of challenging and rewarding golf? Then this is your course! The best golf tee times can be found here.

Love this course, very lady friendly, well maintained with lush fairways and tight greens. Pro shop and attendants are super nice. Many trees covered in Spanish moss, beautiful flowers and great history. Historic markers are laid out about the course, I learn something every time I play.

We were fooled by tee times express and by recent google ratings. The greens are absolutely the worst I have ever seen. They have lost many greens to insects and the recent aeration was poorly done and not rolled. I'm shocked they charged us. Bunkers have more weeds than sand. Guy in club house is surly. Beverage cart sold me $3 peanuts that were stale because of a hole in the bag. On the bright side the starter is very friendly and carts are very nice. It is a shame because this used to be our regular when we did vacations to the area.

Golf course was in excellent shape. It is a very tight and challenging layout. There is a lot of water and some of it is not obvious from the tees or hitting areas. Of the courses at Pawleys Island that we play, it is the one I like the least. That is probably just personal, but there are several holes that just don't fit my eye. It is also a course that takes a lot of course knowledge to play well. Worth a visit if you are playing in the area, but it wouldn't be my first choice. I would likely go with the Tradition or the River Course.

Day 2 of our 3 day golf trip. Played The River Course yesterday. Willbrook is more established, some tight fairways and alot of water to carry. Wasn't in the best shape but fairways and greens were great. Alot of the holes are doglegs left or right with precision off the tee required to set up your approach into the greens. If you haven't ever played here bring a rangefinder or GPS to give you distances to edges of fairways on doglegs.

PROS Fantastic layout - beautiful track Very friendly staff greens were solid and rolled nicely CONS Very wet golf course for the not having rained for a long time it seems like they're over-watering... The Bermuda rough was way too high for a daily fee golf course - we spent a few minutes on many holes looking for balls that were right in front of us. It also made chipping quite an adventure as the ball was sitting down in 4 inches of rough a lot of the time when you were just two or three feet away from the fringe... OVERALL very much worth of price it's a good golf course with nice people - but you better have your tough rough game in order...

In light of the hurricane (Dorian) that came through last week, the course was in great shape! The greens were heavily sanded and a little slow but also to be expected. The layout is beautiful and your staff were absolutely wonderful. We will definitely return.

I guess I'll start at the beginning, we pulled into the front gate and were behind 2 landscape trucks the first was held up for a number of minutes, so we pulled over to the other gate and we were told in undcertain terms to get back in line, extremely rude beginning. Next, thru the hot months of the year, i bring dish type towels that I soak in in ice water, to keep cool. The counterperson said you can't bring your own beer on the course..... I explained the towels thing I assured them the small trash can was for towels, they said we can give you a cup of ice. I even offered to pay for ice understanding the demand was great, we come to find there were very few golfers today unless they had a big group coming in after 3:00 and were bogarting (old school term) the ice for later use. Finally the course, nice layout, well placed traps, a few beach size traps that you drive the cart thru, pretty cool but only cosmedic? Dried grass that can only be described as enough mowed grass piles were just short of bales, as in hay. Moving on. Aprons were weed, the greens had been recently aerated, (which i know is a nessacery evil) no maintenance had been done in, I would say 2-3 weeks, it was like putting on a large broiler pan, either along the pans ribs or , even more exciting adventure across the ribs! No attempt to whip the sand down or even roll them. There's more but, bottom line, until you have a great track, great conditions and just overall great experience outside the clubhouse, that would refer to gate and golf. And inside tbe clubhouseally understand youve been around since 1900, but that does not hold frozen water, in the emencly competitive golf business. It brings to mind the book "Who Moved My Cheese" by Spencer Johnson. Good luck!

Even though the course is in good shape, we had a terrible experience with one of the staff members. We arrived 45 minutes prior to our tee time. We wanted to hit balls, but the driving range is not close to the clubhouse, and the staff had no carts available. We finally got loaded up on a cart, went to the practice putting green, and were told immediately to hurry up & get to the tee box. For the second time, the starter waved his hands in the air & shouted at us to get to the tee box, and it was 10 minutes before our tee time. This experience was the most stressful experience we've ever had on a golf course. We want to be relaxed when we play golf, not hurried & stressed. Hopefully, Willbrook will get rid of that starter. There are too many good courses in the area to have to put up with this kind of treatment. And we are Prime Time members, so we have access to 21 other courses. We learned a good lesson to never play Willbrook on the weekend, or when it's busy.

My friends and I had a very disturbing experience at this course. Several men were playing behind us and hit into us four times on the back nine . They admitted it was done on purpose even though we were playing in a timely fashion and could not have played faster. Eighteen holes played in less than 4 hours is more than reasonable. As females, we have experienced discrimination on golf courses. This has been rare, and it was disturbing to experience this. The staff seemed totally disinterested in hearing complaints or aiding us. It is a beautiful course, but we will not consider golfing there again.

We booked online for 52.00 for a morning tee time through their website. Course is fair and fun to play. However, expect cart path only and the greens were just top dressed and probably won’t be healed up for a couple of weeks. The bunkers were also not raked and wet. They didn’t tell us about any of that prior to booking so needless to say, we felt like they left us in a pickle.

this golf course is in good shape, with a forgiving layout, but lots of hazard. The clubhouse is in a picturesque location under several old growth trees. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Minor details keep this course from earning five stars. The difference between a four and a five in Myrtle Beach is usually minor stuff. This four misses the cut by less than most. Take the trip to Willbrook. You won't be sorry.

I played Willbrook on 6/22/2018 after searching for a nicer course on the south side of Myrtle. Many reviews spoke of so many courses with horrible greens after the cold March. I found Willbrook to be in excellent shape. The course is gorgeous, challenging, but very fair. There is enough mix of water, sand, and strategically placed mossy oaks to get in your head if you let them. Most of the landing areas are wide; greens are very nice. I would highly recommend giving Willbrook a try if haven’t.

Great golf course , quite scenic ,wildlife everywhere .Love the pro shop and restaurant ,chili dogs are outstanding. Bring plenty of golf balls because the water is definitely in play. If you live in South Carolina consider joining prime times as there are great courses everywhere and you can get preference on rates and tee times.
