Nice course but bad drainage
A fair course just in a low lying area of west Florida so always wet fairways.There hasn't been much rain lately but the course is in an area where water is all around.With soggy fairways course plays a little longer and solid contact on approach and chip shots is crucial.Greens are mostly in good shape,a few need work,but run good with quick speed.Not a hard course,length isn't a factor but many holes placement is more important.
A bit wet
The weather finally cooperated and warmed up nicely for a 1pm tee time. The course was in good condition although the ground was very wet. Fairways were in good shape as were the greens so no complaints from us. We'll be back in a short time.
I've been playing this course fairly regularly. Overall in decent to good shape. Greens are slow, very slow, and a bit bumpy, but consistent. So you can learn to putt them. Course is short by today's standards, I'm limited to a 6300 yard course, so to me it doesn't matter, the tips are 6500+.. I give the course itself in between three and four stars. A great place to sharpen your game, with differing challenges on every hole. Fairways aren't narrow, but the bermuda rough can make it difficult to find your ball; even though it is not much deeper than the ball itself. The ball settles to the bottom and the bermuda covers it. Once found, not extremely difficult to hit out of it unless you have a bit of ill-luck. Most bunkers are in decent shape. No hard-pan bunkers. Hitting the fairway will definitely help your score, most fairways are tree-lined so if you're left or right, or even on the wrong side of the fairway, you can have tree trouble. Great course for the price. Worth every penny. Staff is always friendly.
First time thoughts
The staff was fantastic, this is an older course but it had a driving range. I found the course to be great ,the trasp were a little wet and needed to be racked ,over all I would like to play this course again .
Course was in great shape. Good time . Greens were fast and green! Lunch special, deluxe.( club wrap)
Don’t waste your time or money
Much better courses to choose from in the area, this place has seen better days.
Course manager is a COWARD!!! Bring drinks.
I have played this course each of the last 8 years for a long weekend and this was the worst experience I've ever had here. We had a big group and the staff knew when we were coming through and would be needing lunch, yet they did not have enough staff to take care of us.
The cart girl was never around. So bring something to drink or snack on. They also sent her home at 3 when we had 52 guys out playing. Bad management.
Here's the problem I have with the course manager. We finished a hole and he sent somebody out to talk to our group to pick up the pace of play. I would not have a problem with that, but we were waiting to hit at that point because I would have hit the group in front of me if I hit my driver. So if keeping up with the group in front of us is too slow I don't know what he want. 2nd, come out and tell us yourself you coward. Don't send someone else out to tell me something. Tell me yourself. Assess the situation better. Maybe actually see what's going on before you say or do something stupid.
Gooood Day !!
weather was perfect, staff was very helpful and friendly, course was in good shape, no holdups , good pace and enjoyable day
We brought 2 guests who enjoyed the course , our friend purchased some clothing ,she was pleased,only issue was starter who had to make sure we knew he was in charge,and he would allow us to go?otherwise perfect day ,thankyou,pro shop was very good.I played like crap, maybe you could of helped me out!?
Overall course was in good shape. The greens needed improvement - many spots burnt out and dead on every green. Friendly staff and patrons around the course. On course beverage cart needs improvement. Saw the beverage cart/person once at rest facility on hole #5. Never to be seen again! Golf course is leaving a lot of money on the table due to the very limited service out on the course.
Local course - great value
Always enjoy playing Plantation on Crystalb River.
Course was extremely slow paced. Had wait on ever tee. Green were dry and course. Not a championship course!
Great day for golf
Started with a wonderful lunch, a little time on the putting green while waiting for our tee time as we were early - awesome round
Another great day for golf
This course is in pretty good shape, staff is awesome, facility is clean and food is also good. Great consistent experience every time we’ve been there the last few weeks.
