Plantation is the sister course to Seaside and it very enjoyable. Not a memorable course like Seaside but challenging. Hole #10 and #18 are great holes.

Round 2 was played on this course. The first was on the seaside course. This review can be for both.

The weather was not great (cold and windy) however everything else about the event was great. Well maybe not my score. lol. The staff was exceptional. The course conditions were great for this time of year in fact the greens rolled super fast and true. The accommodations are first class. This was a great venue for the GCAT and the 5 stars says it all. A must to place to stay and play. BTW, the price was for the event so I am not sure what the green fees were but its worth it.

Plantation at Sea Island resort is definitely secondary to the premier sister course at Seaside, but its still a big time course with lots of challenges. Plantation is more inland and off the coast but still gets a good bit of wind, especially on number 10. This course isn't overseeded but you would never know it because of how green it is in the middle of January. I enjoyed playing the course and the variety of holes that it had to offer but the greens were very challenging and tougher to read because the grain is almost impossible to read as its not as apparent as Seaside's greens. Plantation can be more sneaky tough as there is a lot of water crossing mid-fairways or peninsula/island greens that isn't very obvious unless you've played the course previously. Overall a wonderful addition and complement to the Sea Island resort golf courses but Seaside is the definite premier course to play.

Plantation will always live in the shadow of Seaside, but at least it will finally get a piece of the spotlight by hosting a portion of the McGladrey Classic for the first time in 2015. With the same amenities as Seaside - the awesome practice facilities along the ocean/sound and access to the swank men's locker room inside The Lodge - Plantation is a four-star course that delivers a five-star experience. Ponds threaten throughout the round on a layout redone by Rees Jones in 1998. Golfers play the 10th hole along the water, then head inland on this parkland-by-the-sea ... never far enough to escape the wind, however.

We played on a very windy day and it was very tough. I have never seen tee boxes as immaculately maintained as these. They are as good as some greens that I play. The greens were very fast but very true!!! Fairways were awesome. Practice area was very nice. Can be very penal if you misshit the ball. Fairways dont have lot of rough so wayward shots will get wet. There are several holes where you choose how much of the marsh to carry.....be conservative and safe. Some of the greens have shaved areas so chips can come back to your feet. Our group had never played the course and there were some shots that were a little blind. Would be helpful to take a 4caddie if possible. Staff is super friendly!! GREAT COURSE!!!
