fairway,tees,greens all in excellent condition. Some fairly easy holes and a couple very difficult in the nine.It is in a housing development but still has a nice open feel. The course has a lot of rolling terrain and mounds and not a lot of flat lies even in the fairways.They must of moved a lot of dirt during construction since the rest of the area is flat. Well designed close mowed chipping areas and sand traps you do not want to visit. I loved it. Hope the new nine is completed asap.

PL was recommended to me by several friends played it on a damp, drizzly Friday. Only 9 holes but what is there clearly worth the experience!! Staff very helpful and friendly. The layout is really nice and playable but with plenty of trouble lurking for errant shots. I LOVED the par 3s-both carries over water and the par 5s which are both reachable in 2 with good tee shots.

The reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is for interaction with a "member." We both playing as singles-starter came out and asked me if I would let "member" play thru as was in a hurry. I was on vacation and course not crowded so gladly agreed. The "member" came up to me on #2 tee and I asked him to play through as directed and as a courtesy. After hitting 2 balls in water, the "member" gave me grief about letting him play through!! What a JERK!! Asked me if I was playing 3 balls on every shot! I had an extra ball on tee in case I hit ball into water as never seen course before. He zipped past me mumbling. Again a JERK!

I will be back as this is a very nice playable course and a decent value green-fee wise

Would have given all 5's but there are only nine holes that you play twice. For the money I would like 18 holes. Course was in great condition and very challenging for a novice like me. Overall, very fun course. Would go again.

Great course, I'm usually Not Going to waste my time on a Nine Hole Track, but I had time for only 9. What convinced me to try it was the Course designer Arthur Hill. Ive Never played a course that he designed that wasn't Fabulous. Plantation Lakes was right on Par with the rest. Great Layout and flow of holes. I'm happy to say that the first Nine Construction is currently in progress. When Completed it will be one the best Courses in the Delmarva Peninsula . It's on Par with Baywood Greens which is my Personal Favorite.

Played Plantation Lakes several times over last few years and they have brought it up to a MUST PLAY moderately challenging course. A very good variety of holes (blind dog legs, water challenges, etc.) for the weekly player. The staff really enjoys having you there and the 'regulars' love to help you out.

Given the time of year (early Spring), the Plantation Lakes golf course is in better shape than most of the courses in the area. Currently, it is a 9-hole course. I hear that course ownership intends to start the second 9 holes in 2018. The course in young. While it does present some challenges with water and sand, there are very few trees that might come into play. Perhaps that'll change when the second 9 holes are in place. All in all, we had a great day and we enjoyed the course (playing it twice to get our 18 holes in.) I certainly would recommend it to all levels of golfers. Can't wait to be completed!

Thank you for your rating. This time of the year its very difficult to maintain the high standards of the golf course. As you may already know, starting in January we brought in a new Maintenance Company and Superintendent to better monitor the overall conditions of the course. They have put together a comprehensive plan to improve the conditions of the course as a whole moving forward. The programs will soon be implemented as we get closer to growing season. We look forward to this Summer and feel strongly about our plans to make Plantation Lakes one of the best conditioned Golf Courses in the area. We hope to see you back again soon!

Any time you can play in the winter at 65* in February makes for a great day! The course has a great start but to play 18 holes you need to play the 9 hole that are open!The nine hole are a great start.The club house at this time is just a Nice clean trailer but it has ever thing you need and the staff is A+.

I will be playing it again

Only 9 holes completed, but a great layout. My sons and I played the tips the first time around and it was challenging for sure. We then played from the whites and it was enough of a change that you almost did not recognize some of the holes. Looking forward the next nine! It is on our list of local favorites for sure!

Really liked the layout and several holes had you thinking about positioning the ball. The starter was very friendly. (even brought a cart to my vehicle before I even turned my truck off)

BUT.... the following was annoying.

-The course was wide open and we were early and the cashier in the pro shop wanted us to wait for our actual starting time 20 minutes later until we went out. (REALLY!?)

-The course maintenance staff were oblivious to golfers... wouldn't get out of the way or stop equipment even when they were yards away from us.
