Feel better

A course that will make you feel better about your game. This course is wide open and easy to get to the greens. Was able to put up my best score. The course is short so don't get greedy you will get your birdy shots.

course good, staff not so much

Played in a shotgun start - the staff offered no help at all re starting. Noticed a bunch of golfer (members, probably) suddenly driving off and simply followed them hoping to find our starting tee. Clubhouse is odd, access to restrooms is impossible to locate. Area for parking carts is no where near putting greens. Access to on-course restrooms requires a password that is printed on your receipt - misplace that and tough luck. OK, now good part - course was in very nice condition. Tough greens with difficult pin placements on our visit.

Course condition was exceptional. Greens were a little slow but rolled very true. Staff was very helpful and even recommended locations for dinner. We had a great experience and look forward to returning.

Great course - lousy customer service

It was raining and a little windy but we worked our way around on this really good course. The fairways and greens were excellent - overseeding I think - and if you stayed in the fairway, you could score. If you missed, well, let's just say good luck. There is a nice practice facility for warm-ups. Customer service was horrible. The staff at check-in were short, snarky, and unfriendly to a first-time visitor. There is no on-course service of any kind so bring your own. I'll be back but it won't be because anyone made me feel welcomed.

Poor Staff

Course was good condition and enjoyable round. Inside Staff not the best. I had paid 9.95 on Golfnow and expected to pay remaining of what I owed and rest of foursome would pay there share. They charged all the same and said the 9,95 was a Golfnow Fee? I have not encountered this before. They acted like they did not like that we had booked on Golfnow. Because of the customer service and attitude of senior person on desk when checking in. I would not recommend this course. Improve the customer service skills and work with the customer and it would have been a great outing.

These comments are what makes golf now look bad. People book on golf now website but never read any of the rules or conditions posted on the site... such as tee time can be moved up to 20 minutes due to course availability, or not paying attention to the icons to know what comes with the tee time. If you read the screen when you book your tee time before confirming the time it says booking fee paid to golf now and the price due at course. If you had paid attention to you confirmation it would have said all of that information. Going to these courses using golf now, I am starting to understand if the pro shops are getting a little upset dealing with guests from golf now that do not read what they are paying for. These people are making golf now look bad.

The 9.95 fee you paid online was a booking fee that golfnow assessed you. The fees are due at the course for each individual golfer like you were explained. It spells it out for you on your confirmation. I played this course yesterday and it by far has the best greens in town. The customer service in the pro shop was excellent. They even helped grab my bags from the car for me when I asked for assistance because of a leg injury. Seems you were a bit confused about how you booked it online. I highly recommend either of the golf courses at Plantation.

Plantation Golf

Played Cranes Roost at Plantation Golf Club. The course was in excellent condition; tee's, fairways, and greens all have been over seeded and really green and lush. A very good golf course for the money.

Good for the money

Crane's Roost is a good challenge, in good condition. Much more play friendly than Otter's Creek.

Good condition .... would play Crane's Roost again .... but not Otter Creek again.

First time playing but I like it a lot

Last time I went to plantation I played otter creek and was not thrilled. Seemed a little tight on the fairways. Of course the weather was terrible so that could have had something to do with it (I'll probably try it again). However my experience at cranes roost was very good and it could become one of my favorite local courses.

Plantation cranes roost course

Nice course very nice conditions, greens good, interesting layout, all paths paved. It's a good challenge for the better senior player from the back tees -the blues. Lots of dog legs. Great practice facility. Carts clean and quiet - electric. Nice area. Gladly go back
