Plantation Palms Golf Club
Plantation Palms Golf Club, designed by David Harman, provides every Tampa golfer with a challenging and rewarding golf experience. The links-style design starts with a welcoming par 5, and then slowly steps up with a mixture of strong par 3s. Just 10 minutes north of Tampa, this course was carved a 400-acre citrus grove that slopes from west to east, providing interesting elevation changes. Water is in play on 17 of 18 holes. Plantation Palms Golf Club has an attractive framing of greens by the use of pine trees, water and large snow-white sand traps. The true-rolling elevated greens have good movement and are a challenge for golfers.

I played with two other people today.
It was our first time playing this course.
We will definitely be returning soon to play this course.
One of the best in Tampa for the price.
Good local course
Good local course and great value. The fringes of some greens were in rough shape but didn't effect play much and you could tell they were trying to improve it. Sand traps could use more fine sand base. I'm an occasional golfer and my group had a great time.
It’s About Time
I’ve been trying to play all of the courses in the Tampa area and this one has always been on my list, but for the longest time poor reviews kept me away. Finally, new reviews made it seem like they had turned it around so I gave it a try. It was a great day! Fairways, tees, and bunkers are as expected for the price you pay. Greens are quick and firm but could use some maintenance around the edges. But the layout and service was fantastic. Every hole made you think and you were punished for poor decisions. The pro shop and staff were very friendly and made it clear that they were doing all they could to keep their golfers safe during this crazy time.
Course was open without restaurant due to pandemic. Pro shop was open and gave hand wipe for golf cart. Course was in very good shape, quick greens but receptive to mid to high irons. Cart Person was around the entire round as water stations were empty, 1$ for water was fair. Great course and very appreciative that the course and the staff were able to keep course open when everything else is shutting down.
This course needs a player assistant (ranger)the guys a head of us drove near the greens and tees and quite often would hit more than one ball because they had a bad shot we saw this cause we waited on every shot of theirs the course it self is fine
Based upon most courses in the area, this one is one of the better. Condition is ok but most courses in this price range are not nearly as nice.
This course has been redesigned and is a great challenge. Greens are well protected and raised. Cart girl was awesome. Staff and starter very friendly. Nice driving range to warm up on. Although the greens had been sanded, they were still very playable and rolled true. The back 9 is much prettier than the front and more fun. Can't beat this place for the price! Very enjoyable round.
Very good course.
Typical landscaping problems this time f year in Central Florida. Most greens were in good shape. Some holes had hardpan around greens. I like the layout, you had to place your shots - not just grip it and rip it. The greens were undulating and in some cases two-level. Fun to play. Try it - you'll like it!
The course is back!
First time playing Plantation since the renewal..Always a great layout and a true test of golf. The greens need attention along with the sand but otherwise it looks and plays great!
Fast greens and tough pins, mixed with a bit of a breeze made for a challenging day!
Nice layout. Plenty of holes to test your driver. Nice elevated greens to test your wedges. Greens are good, getting much better. Went early in the morning so it wasn’t too packed. I will play here more
Slow play hindered the round. After 4 hours with 5 holes left we decided to quit. No cart for beverage the round either.
Fairways need work. Very hard and sparse grass. Greens were very fast and rough in areas.
The course is trending in the right direction after reopening. It’s in great shape for the money.
Excellent Course - Still work to do.
Course is a wonderful layout. The tees, fairways and greens are n very good shape. Bunkers still need work but continues to improve since the first time I played 3 months ago. You will enjoy your round, the ranger keeps a good pace and the starters will give you time to get off and going.
Nice course for the money. Fairways are hard and dry. Greens were fast at the first of February.
Not expected improvements!
Last visit 2-3 years ago, just after re-opening, was hoping to see more improvements. Sand traps not very good, fairways were average and greens still need TLC.Ranger ager was useless, said he couldn't make singles double up to offset back ups. ??? Guess we'll try course next year, hope it recovers better than this visit.
