This was my first time playing Plum Creek after wanting to play it for the last couple of years. Overall, the tee boxes and fairways were in incredible shape. I only had a couple of complaints about the course: 1) the greens look healthy, but rolled really slow. My brother-in-law and I had issues all day getting the speed of the greens down. They looked like they should roll a lot faster. 2) More yardage markers on the course would be extremely helpful for people who don't play here often. Either that, or GPS in the carts. Other than that, really enjoyed the layout and will definitely be playing here again this summer!

First time playing - excellent condition!

I played in a foursome on Saturday 5/30. We teed off at 4PM and while the course was busy we never felt rushed and never had to wait to tee off. The course was in SUPERB condition. This was my first round since corona virus so it was nice to get outside and get a round in. I was able to hit a bucket of balls and get in some putting practice prior to our round, which is always nice.

The weather was perfect.

One small gripe is the amount of tall fescue type grass that is around the course specifically around the greens. I hit two balls that landed on the green and rolled into the tall grass and it is extremely difficult to find once it is in there unless you get lucky. With that said, I decided how to approach certain shots because of that, which adds to the challenge which, in my opinion, is a good thing. Our foursome was able to finish 18 in about 3:45.

Staff in the pro-shop was friendly and helpful. I bought a new glove and some tees. Downstairs in the bar I had some homemade trail mix (the addition of dried bananas is a revelation!) and packed up a 6 pack of white claws.

I would love to come back again - thanks!

Nice course, nice people

I would say this is a great place to play if you are interested in having a nice easy round. It is hard to lose a ball in the front 9, if you are too aggressive on the back it can punish you. Well, kept and forgiving in general, the rough is tough but fair - don't try to blast out with a hybrid, it will grab that club. Some greens are challenging in a good way.

If I have a complaint, it is that the on course information is severely lacking. If I hadn't been playing with a resident, I'd have had a hard time knowing where to go for the next tee. For 70 bucks, I'd expect at least a 150 yard marker, but distance markers are non-existent.

Fairways in great shape!

The course is green, lush, and well-manicured! Fantastic overall. The greens were a bit slow compared to normal, presumably in part due to the recent aeration - expect greens to be in great shape in a couple of days.

No tee markers?

I understand it is January and you don’t normally get a lot of play this time of year. But, when you get a couple of weekend days in the 50’s you should know you are going to get some activity. There were no tee markers on the tee boxes. So you just had to guess where you should play from. This course has some holes that are very tricky to find. Better markings on WHERE the next hole is would be nice. Generally the course was in pretty good shape. The greens were pretty shaggy, but I guess that is to be expected in January.

Underwhelmed

Course layout was just ok for the Dye courses I have played. Conditions were great for a winter round. The problem I had was the very poor pace of play and the fact that I was forced to play with someone else whose golf etiquette was horrible. I would have loved to rate the course higher but too many things were not up to snuff.
