The Golf Club at Wescott Plantation
Wescott Golf Club is located in the heart of the lowcountry just minutes from Charleston International Airport, historic plantations and gardens, and beautiful beaches.

Set among centuries old live oaks and built on one of the lowcountries oldest plantations, the design captures the traditional flavor of low flowing earthworks and classic bunkering.
