Plantation Palms Golf Club is a Good Choice for Weekend Play

 

PlantationPalms: 11th hole

The 11th hole is a short par 5 with trouble down right. A good drive can get you home in two. On approach, anything short and right falls off the green.

Last weekend was my first visit to Plantation Palms Golf Club since October of 2012. Once again, Plantation Palms did not disappoint. The course was in good shape from the tees and on the fairways. The greens also were in fine condition along with all the sand, and Plantation Palms has a lot of sand. This golf course is almost always in good condition and is safe choice for weekend golf outings.

Plantation Palms Golf Club has four sets of tees from over 6700 yards to 5300. The right tee selection is crucial for this course as there are many challenging holes that will test your length and accuracy (and patience). One example is the dog-leg left sixth hole, with sand and a long stretch of water to carry off the tee. Similarly, the very next hole is a par three that requires a long iron off the tee to carry the water that reaches almost to the green. Holes on the back nine also have their own set of obstacles. Difficult tee shots over wetlands, like the twelfth hole where you hit to an elevated green, or the short par four fifteenth hole that features a narrow fairway and water on both sides.

The staff is friendly and each cart has a GPS an ice and water filled cooler. There is also a beverage cart that makes the rounds. There is a nice driving range with a practice bunker area, and a nice sized putting green near the first tee. The pace of play that weekend morning was just over four hours which isn’t bad, and the price was $42; although that will change depending on what day or time you choose.

If you haven’t already, I would definitely recommend giving Plantation Palms Golf Club a try. I think it’s worth it. For more information you can go to www.plantationpalms.net or check out my previous posts:
