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.

No Thanks

At $21 the was still not a value. The fairways are very thin & areas around the greens are very bad. Course workers are very disruptive, at one point a guy simply parked on a green as we played up. At their normal pricing $35 & up you can fine WAY better options.

Great Track Good Challenge

I really like this track! Good layout can be quite challenging if you make a couple mistakes. Clubhouse is really nice too! Good track definitely worth the drive! Even though it was little wet today The course was in good shape and the greens rolled well.

Nice layout

Great layout makes you use all the club's in the bag. Grass needs to be cut but very wet. I look forward to playing this course when it dries out

Progressing

Plantation Palms is progressing. This last round I played, I noticed that they had fixed a few of the troubled bunkers, and the greens were rolling very nice. Drainage continues to be an issue but the rain has helped the courses greens and fairways tremendously.

Nine was enough

This course is very close to being very competetive with other bay area courses. Fun layout and a varety of challenges on each hole. The staff, including the starter, is courteous and attentive. The course suffers from poor/insufficient drainage. First impression at driving range is standing water and muddy lies...The greens were punched maybe a week earlier but still were pocked enough to deflect the ball. No one appears to repair thier ball marks - I fixed 3-4 on each green. The bunkers were washed out with weeds and debris throughout. Looking forward to seeing this place again in the fall.

Don’t waste your money!

I’m no one to bash a course but this place is absolutely terrible. I like the layout of the course but after that it’s all down hill. Grass is out of control, terrible lies whether you are in the fairway or not. Nothing but mud around all greens. Mud and grass in every sandpit. It’s god awful. The greens were god awful too. You can find way better courses for the same price. As an avid golfer I’ve played some bad courses but this tops it all and for over 30 dollars a round. The reviews of this course are so false. I tried this course out because of the reviews. It’s a lie. The practice range is nice but that’s it !

Great Course!

Great course with some forgiving fairways makes Plantation Palms a great choice for any golfer! Layout is challenging with water and some rolling hills to challenge those used to flat courses in FL. Course is a bit dry at the moment which has hurt the fairways and greens somewhat but the rates are unbeatable especially for those who play twilight! Lastly, great to see Mulligans Pub open for business as this chain serves some of the best hamburgers, chicken etc. available at any course. Will definitely continue to play here ... thanks for another great outing!

Very interesting greens

Course was a bit mushy from rain but enjoyed layout. Greens are all elevated and surrounded by mounds so not going to roll one up fairway, need to loft on to greens so able to work on different shots.

Will go back

This is for Golf Now - this course had a 24 hour cancellation policy. I tried to call Friday night to cancel and the office was closed and it would not let me cancel online. The weather was extremely hot and that is why we wanted to cancel. Change your guidelines or I will not be using your website again.

The course needs better maintenance.

Overall the course has not been maintained well. Several greens have bare spots. Lots of wet areas in front of greens. Maybe try again in the Fall.
