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.

Greens punched

No warning or discounts for punched greens, already the most expensive course in the area so I expect it to be in great shape, should have had a notice on golf now- not the 1st time thus has happened at Wescott

Great conditions

Not very busy during the round. Like having the course to myself. Always nice to play here. You will need a mask to enter the building as this is a municipal building.

Wescott

The course was in very good shape compared to others I played in the surrounding area. The one drawback was that the area around the greens it’s fairly soft compared to the rest of the course. The people were very friendly and very helpful. As a 17 handicap, playing the course from the blue tees, it was a challenge, but a fair challenge.

Wescott golf Saturday morning

Lucky early start, fast round even when paired with walker for first 9. No drinking water on course. No drink cart. No ball washers. Signage for drinks and restroom at turn not seen. Nice staff, confusing pricing with golf now reservation. Not sure where problem lies there. Course is in great condition and long but fair.

Nice. Course

Vacation in Charleston NC. Played in round and picked westcott on golf now. 25 min drive out 17. Found they were hosting Drive Chip Putt regional for a trip to Augusta Natl. Wide fairway not too much trouble. Course was soft from rain a few days before. Greens rolled nicely albeit a little slow. Rough was serious. Would certainly play again if in the area.

Aeration

The greens here had been aerated. That should be noted on the app so that people are aware before making a tee time. Their is no wait that we would have played here had we known the condition of the greens.
