Have fun!

Fun and fast public course, just be mindful of how fast the greens can be when they’re dry.

Slowest ever

When the pace of play is so slow that one quits before the round is over it ruins the entire experience. We quit after a completely frustrating 13 holes. This is the first time that I have not completed a round in reasonable weather conditions.

Very Nice Older Course

This course is an older course that needs some work. But don’t let that sway you. It’s a fun and challenging layout that is in a quaint little town with great people. The cost was perfect for this course.

Good value for money

General grooming of course was good but some fairways were thin and some greens were patchy, In general the condition was favorable. Location of tees were confusing, tee direction postings definitely require improvement. Restaurant service was excellent, and quality of food was good.

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.

Good course

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.
