First time playing Used cart Windy weather

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.

Beautiful course. ONLY thing I'd like to see is fewer difficult drives. I drive 270-300 and I have to try to shape the drive (not my forte by any means). This made scoring difficult. Extremely well maintained and beautiful course

What made it a very good experience was the staff was consistently friendly and accommodating. Very good layout and quite challenging especially from the blue tees on a windy day. Par threes are very difficult period I would play it again.

The roped off sections of the range were so tiny between the front rope and the back rope that I caught my left wrist in the front rope on one swing , producing a lot of pain that thankfully went away. If I had had real damage I would have gone legal on them.

I try to play Plantation Preserve several times a year, even though I live in southern Miami-Dade County. The layout is outstanding and the course conditions are usually excellent. This particular day I was put in a foursome, but we moved right along, finishing in under four hours. The staff are helpful. For the money this course is the best in the area and well worth the drive.

My foursome travels each year to the Fort Lauderdale area and we always book a round here. Today's experience reflected the fact that the fariways were like carpet and were firm. The greens were quite healthy. This is a great layout and this course is wonderful. Since this course opened, we have booked a round there and won't change anything in the future. The fairways actually are ingrained with topsoil and are not quite as sandy as other courses in the area. The people who work there are friendly and represent the course well.

What a beautiful course!

When we played in the afternoon it was still very busy, so onthe first 9 we had to wait onevery hole, but still made it in 2.15.

Second half went a lot better, no more waiting.

Layout is phenomenal, with lots of very. Ice views.
