Kicked off Course at 600pm
The lady in the pro shop was not super friendly. The course itself was pretty average to poor. No memorable holes. Boring layout. Greens were below average. Course was super wet but obviously not the courses fault. We had about 5 holes left to play around 545pm and were told the carts had to be in by 600. 600 is two hours before dark. Last I knew the paying customer determined when the staff got to go home not vice versa. Most Ludacris thing I've ever seen. So we left and went home with 4 holes left to play. Wouldn't go back due to the course though, not the staff. Cart guy was super friendly.
The course was in good shape. When heavy rains come it gets pretty soggy, but right now it is Great. I’m disappointed that the Golf Now price is so high. The Plantation advertises a lower price. I hope Golf Now gets in line because normally I do most of my golf through them but right now they are out of line.
Course in good shape
Laid back staff, very nice! Course was in good shape even after a lot of rain! We’ll play here again definitely! Thanks guys!
Favorite Local Track
Relocated to area just about 4 years ago. This is quickly becoming my favorite go to track. I was spoiled, for many years was in the Golf business in Miami and got to play some wonderful coursrs regularly. Struggled to find a local course that offered everything on my check list until I found Plantation Crystal River.
Aesthetically pleasing .....check
Good overall condition......check
Makes you think your way around the course......check
Third attempt to like this course
I’d played here twice last year, and both times came away feeling that it’s a competent course as far as offering 18 well-maintained golf holes - the groundskeeping is good, fairways are generally good, mowed to a height that doesn’t have you perpetually on a tight lie, greens well maintained. That’s still the case. It’s the kind of course you really want to find a reason to love, but there’s just no memorable or challenging terrain, views, or layout that say “wow”. It’s completely fine for the day where you just want to get out and practice, and not have 10 traps between tee and cup - “utilitarian” is the word that comes to mind. Pace of play was just over 2.5 hours on a early afternoon tee time, as I had no one ahead or behind for the entirety of the round and played 2 balls most of the round. A big plus is not a lot of housing close to fairways as is so common on Florida courses; it’s only at the perimeter of the course and rarely near enough to be intrusive. Allow extra time if coming from the south due to construction on Rt 19.
Very good course for your money!!
Greens was in good condition an course is a challenge with hazards on almost all holes. Bathrooms on course an water coolers. Course was the best bang for my buck I've ever played. Though sometimes on this course u can get a bit lost. But over all its a nice an challenging course for a good price. I would recommend it to anybody!!
The sun was out and the day was warm and windy in Inverness Florida. The course was in spring condition, meaning that the grass on the fairways was green but the ball sits on the ground not supported by grass. The greens were decent and not awful fast, still springtime condition. All in all a nice day to play the game.
It was a well maintained course and we had a great day.
Fair to midland
We had a 7:46 tee time. Staff didn't show up until 8:00. Course was long and i was hopig for mire trees for shade. The course was great from an aesthetic point of view. I would definitely golf it again!
can be challenging
Love this set up. Have played here 4 times now.
Some holes are very challenging, if you don't play
Won’t be back.
I play golf about 3 times a week, never the same course twice in a row and love to travel around Florida playing. I drove about an hour and thirty minutes to play today and unfortunately this ranks among the worst courses I have played. It started with me having a tee time at 8:00am and the staff not getting to the course until 7:55. He was rude and inconsiderate, then pointed us to the first tee box. No warm up or and range was closed (I get this with covid-19). Then there was the course. Bare spots everywhere, ground so hard I couldn’t take a clean attack angle to the ball. Worm holes all over the green, so couldn’t get a true roll. Tee boxes were bad for the most part. There’s no reason for me to keep going. In conclusion; I won’t be back and I encourage you to look further if you are used to playing above average courses.
The course is in good shape and is getting a lot of play. An all round great place to play golf.
First I will say that I will probably play this course again. Layout was ok. The condition was ok (not good or bad). Staff in the clubhouse was not overly friendly but not rude. Nothing here made me think of returning. I hope that it was because of the crazy times we live in with COVID19. I will probably try it again after things clear up to see if it improves.
Nice place to golf
Staff is friendly, course in pretty good shape. They are doing an awesome job cleaning because of the virus. Feel safe to play And the price is good.
better than Inverness gcc
Plantation is an overall pleasant experience. First you don't have mouthy members who live on the course being jerks. Course layout is nicer than the flat/straight holes of Inverness GCC. Staff are friendly and pleasant compared to Inverness GCC. Both have poor ranges. Play this course and you'll have a pleasant experience. Inverness is just waiting to push you around.... Lots of attitude for a course thats struggling with members who are slowly "leaving"
