Had played the private Plantation Club the day before. So maybe the comparison isn’t fair, but both clubs had aireated their greens However, Plantation East greens were basically useless. We were so frustrated, we went to a two putt rule just to get through the round. The top dressing was so thick, if you hit a green it was like hitting a sand trap. Tried to get a beer at the turn and even on a Friday everything was closed there was so little play. Got a decent deal on Golf Now or I would have been really upset with the experience. The course layout was the only bright spot. Would love to play it under better conditions.

I’m about a 12 handicap and enjoyed playing this course, a good layout that isn’t to hard or easy. A few of the greens had been repaired so those were not in good shape but other then that the course was nice shape. With those greens issue I’m not sure it’s worth $50 considering all the other options around.

The staff were excellent, a beautiful course that would be spectacular if they didn't suffer from a little bit of winter kill on some of the greens. The grounds crew has done a great job in repairing the greens on the few holes that suffered this past winter and they rolled very well. The only complaint about the conditions was 10 th green which the staff warned me about during check in. The overall condition, beauty and challenge of the course more than made up for it, we enjoyed it so much we played again the next day. Thanks for a great golf experience.

Always like the fact that range balls are included with the green fees.

We found it difficult to come to terms with the slow pace of the greens but otherwise an enjoyable course to play. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended!

Both the pro shop personnel and the starter/ranger were super friendly and accommodating. The fairways were In good condition but the greens were very inconsistent. Some were pretty good but many had large bare spots or patches of dead grass. No. 10 was pretty much dirt all over. If you can get a deal give it a try but you will be quite dissatisfied if paying full price.

The grass on many tee boxes was not cut. Many greens had huge bare areas. Many areas of fairways were poor or even dirt. It rained 2 days ago and the bunkers were still hard-pack or hard dirt. Played 3 years ago and the course was in great shape. Something has gone wrong...a real shame.
