Good round

Plantation Pointe is always fun and challenging.
The greens were excellent and the fairways were wet as was to be expected because of the heavy rains. However, it was a lovely round- as always!

Beautiful greens

Greens were wonderful (although I found them difficult to read). Fairways were nice. If you were off the fairway, expect to spend some time looking for your ball; difficult to see unless you are right over your ball.

First time

I travel around and enjoy playing new courses. This course was in good condition, liked the view it would probably nice in the fall especially since it so hot in July. The lay out of the course was nice. It was a two hour drive but well worth it. I will be back.

Great time!

My son and I got there an hour early to putt and just loosen up, but there weren’t many golfers there at that time so the staff let us go ahead and tee it up. Nice course and pretty wide open for the ones with power fades (slicers).

Fantastic greens

The greens at the Point are always in great shape. There are two greens that are not kind to me (#10 and #12) due to their smallish size and/or the way they are laid out for your approach shot. This course is a great value round for the cost. The staff members are always friendly and accommodating. The course can be played fairly to your ability as you have 5 tee box options. This is a good place to play if you are struggling from the tee as it is very open.

Always a pleasure.

The wife wanted to play golf on Mothers Day, so I booked The Plantation Course. I still believe this is the best kept golf secret in the area. We literally had the entire course to ourselves, and the course was in wonderful shape. Kudos to the grounds keeping staff.
If you are looking for a great relaxing round of golf without being pushed, or having to wait at every tee-box, then The Plantation Course is for you!
