I have recently made this my home course. The layout gives any private course in broward a run for its money. The conditions are always excellent, and staff members are friendly. Rates are on the pricey side for a public course but stiff worth it if you play at a twilight rate. Definitely a top 5 course in broward and worthy of hosting second round Q-school.

Excellent course played the day after serious rain. Course very well drained and only some fairways kept buggies to paths which was appropriated. Great course layout with some picturesque holes with challenge. One of the best courses in the area - definitely worth playing.

Course has one basic shower and no towels. Shame as we were enroute to the airport!

Good recovery from recent hurricanes and a course well worth playing. Some rain, but hey it is that time of year albeit the rain is warm! Greens in good condition but playing slow before the PGA Tour is due in a couple of weeks. Worth playing and was a great recommendation from locals to play this course. Some great challenging holes that are also photogenic! I will come back.

Pristine!! This course was nice the first time I played it 3 years ago. I guess since it had been so long I must have forgotten how nice this place was. I live in south miami and it's a 45 min drive passing at least 10 other golf courses. I will most definitely will be passing those courses as often as I can to play Plantation Preserve. What surprised me the most was I played just a week after hurricane Irma and the course was already cleaned up and no traces of debris. The staff obviously cares for this course by cleaning it up right away because other local courses have still left the trees laying on the ground. Great job Plantation Preserve!!!!

Green and fairways were aerated with a lot of sand on the greens which were soft. So the experience was not great but the course is well maintained. Will return when the greens recover. Course demands good driving as the rough is thick.

Had a great time playing this course. The layout is challenging but still open. The landscape does not feel like the typical South Florida course and that makes it more entertaining. I was not notified on GolfNow that the greens had just been airated which obviously made putting stressful but that was not the course's fault.

Classy operation from curbside bag drop off through pro shop, range, course and staff. Plantation Preserve is nestled in a beautiful setting with lovely views and interesting holes. Fairways are well kept and greens roll true. Play during the week if possible because rounds on weekends are somewhat slow. Recently, we played a round during the week in 3:20 while the earlier weekend round was 4:40. Ranger tried to move folks along but he wan't able to increase the pace. Friendly staff and challenging holes with lots of water in play. Bring your "A" game.

Nice track, but average condition. Greens very bumpy. I expected better, given previous reviews. And pro-shop staff shouldn't freak out when a golfer presents a Hot Deal confirmation. I was made to feel very uncomfortable. My view; if a course doesn't like Golf Now terms and polices, then don't participate.

Let me start by saying I would give the overall experience a 3-4. The course itself is a 4. I usually come here to use the range and have been looking forward to playing here all winter. With all of the snow birds down the course has been expensive and crowded. Today, I finally found a hot deal that was an ok price. The cart guys were friendly and helpful. However, the pro shop attendant (Steve) and another guy who was not wearing a name tag were no where near as friendly. The starter Ron was also not on the friendlier side. The course is not inexpensive by any means and one thing I would expect is for the staff to be much more inviting.

The pace of play today was actually great, although many times I've seen the backup at the first tee and fully understand you might end up playing a 5 hour round more times than not. With that said, today I tee'd off at 12:40 and was done by 3:40 at the latest.

The course condition was pretty good. The greens were nice but were very hard and it was almost impossible to get anything to stick (we haven't had much rain here lately though so I can understand that). The fairways and most tee boxes were in good shape. The bunkers were not good. Most had very little sand or were a bit chewed up. That was the most disappointing part of the course as far as actually playing it. If you just stay out of the bunkers you don't really have to worry about it though.

Some of the other times I've been here, I interacted with Joe and he is has always been very friendly. The range is great and is actually inexpensive compared to Jacaranda. If you can find a good deal online, I would say take it. But if not, I probably wouldn't pay what they are asking especially in the morning.
