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.

All the staff should be fired. Most unprofessional people I have ever had dealings with at a golf course. Paid for 18 was only aloud to play 9 because they were shutting down at 2. No refund because it was made and paid to GN.

Find a new job if you don't like yours. Don't ruin someone's round because you're having a bad day. Talk about unprofessional.

Worst golf experience

Let me say I have played here 3-4 times and really like it.

Yesterday was a different story. I was hosting 2 groups.

It took 2:50 min for the front 9

I joined the group at that time . There was. A 3 some in front that was clearly holding up the whole course .

No Ranger was on the course anywhere, we finally went around this group to discover the whole course was wide open.

As we started to have fun and get going we were absolutely hounded by the cart boy to stop playing and return to the clubhouse as the sun was going down

It appeared they all must have had other things to do.

As a result I played 7 holes in 2:20 min and could not finish 9 holes

My son and his friends left as they were so frustrated by having 3 groups on every hole.

The ironic thing is my son is a cart guy at another course he has to wait till everyone is done often times getting home very late. He never badgers the guest to stop playing

I hope someone reads this and offers me my money back or returns my call but I am not holding my breath

Good bye Wescott golf course you should be ashamed of your team

Northern plays the Southern golf

Wow. Coming from Connecticut and playing golf in South Carolina was an experience I hope to repeat. Starting with checking in everything was yes sir absolutely sir and thank you sir. Real Southern hospitality. The starter gave me the card and showed me where the first hole was. Oak Forest. Laid out well with 5 tee boxes. I was going to play the “green” tees but the fairway on the first hole was open and just made me play the whites. I’m 62 and was only playing 1round. Every hole was picture perfect. Fairways are wide with well placed traps that were a challenge not difficult. The greens were nice to putt on very fast for me.
The second nine was Burn Kill and played like the front nine. Several doglegs and some fair and challenging par 3’s over water made this a course to play if your in South Carolina. Definitely will play this again. Also bought a shirt in the Pro Shop.

So nice we played it twice

So happy to have found this gem. The 3 nines are all interesting layouts, well maintained greens and fairways. The sand was several steps above the normal type of coastal course sand traps but oddly, were not groomed. That would be my only negative comment and for a casual round easily remedied by raking and taking a drop in the bunker.
The course offers generous fairways and for the senior golfer (60+) the rate was exceptional.
On our next visit to the Charleston area we will definitely play Wescott again.

Beautiful day!

Great day! Course is in good shape. Still scarred a bit from aeration. But I like the course, layout and challenges. Greens are a bit inconsistent but it was still enjoyable. I’ll be back.

Course in good condition. Greens were recently aerated and still played well. The starter was not welcoming - needs hospitality lessons

Good value for CHS area golfing

Thoroughly enjoyed the round- friendly staff, routing great! Tee box good condition, greens were true. Just some crab grass creeping into fairways. Pace of play was fair, got done in 4:30.
