under total maintinence

total course was under construction,temporary greens only. impossible to putt, rough was heavy and almost impossible to get out of. I reserved online with Golf Now, you would expect them to know what the course conditions were going to be like....no discount, paid full price. Waste of my time and money!

Course is in rough shape

Temporary greens are only the start of the tough course conditions. Rough is tough, lots of lost balls. Turf is thin and long, ball nestles down hard to find. Price is great, if you just want to practice much cheaper to get a range bucket. Currently the course is not a good deal at any price. Would like to try it again once the course is in better condition, but that won’t be until the busy season

Temporary greens, course not cut, played through 7 and felt my time was more valuable. Stop selling the course until it’s completed.

They stole my money

I am from this area and have played this course 50 times at least. I got there after booking to find that they have all temporary greens. Ok. My nine year old still wanted to play. I really tried but the course is not only playing with temporary greens but it is in terrible shape. Not cut very well even in the fairways. They should stop selling until they are back in shape because even at the price I paid ($61) for my son and I it is not worth your time.

Temp Greens

We were not notified until we were at the course that all the greens were under repair. They were using temporary greens on every hole. Course was in fair shape. Slow play behind lots of leagues. Dissapointed

Why can't GolfNow mention TEMPORARY GREENS??

It is obviously worthwhile to read reviews of a course before booking but I don't understand why such an important fact or problem like temporary greens isn't more prominently stated when going through the booking process.

That being said, for $25 or so you get to drive around a beautiful area, have a couple of beers, smoke a cigar, hit 70 or 80 golf shots and get some fresh air (except for the cigar).

Replacing Greens ~ Fairways Good ~ Tee Boxes In-Progress

If you haven't played here before you may want to wait for the Green replacement to be completed but if you just want to take advantage of some cheap prices on a moderately challenging course with temporary greens and nice fairways this might be the time. We enjoyed almost all the play with the exception of the temporary greens. Degree of difficulty of the greens? At least a 12 .. Lol :) Staff was very friendly and the facilities, carts etc. were good. I'd play it again without hesitation especially at these prices.

Surprise!!!!

Name and location made it sound like this was a nice course. And to be fair it could be a fabulous venue. However, no mention was made of temporary greens when I booked it. T boxes were really beat up and much of the rough so deep it was difficult to find an errant shot. Tree lined fairways most of the holes. Low price should have indicated there were some issues.

Terrible

We never played the course. They were redoing the greens and I refused to play on them. They put a temporary hole in front of the original green. Course refused to to refund anything and GolfNow said it was not able to be canceled on the App even though it was before the tee time.

Temporary greens and tees par 3s were 30 yards and par 5s about 250. Would have been better if played in field. No mention on GolfNow when I booked absolute waste of time and money quit after 5 holes. I have played bad courses before and even enjoyed a few of them this was the worse.I think more irritated at Golf Now if I had called pro shop to book likely they would have told me

Temp greens, apathetic staff

No clue they were temp greens when I booked. Initial outside services guy was great, club pros seem bothered to be at work. No attempt by the team to provide accurate yardage due to improvised green, when I offered constructive feedback as an industry insider I was shrugged off. Tipped outside services on my way out, didn’t even wipe down my clubs or place them in the car. Originally a good layout, management is uninspired. Indicative of others other area . Golf courses which Have recently gone out of business… Sadly

Poor conditions

When we arrived we where told that all of the greens are under repair. Temporary “greens” are in front of the greens, in the fairway. The tee boxes where chopped up. The fairways looked likes they had not been mowed for awhile.
I don’t know what happened here, this course “was” the premier place to play. What a shame to let this course suffer.
I’m willing to give it another chance, in a few months.
Golf Pass, has some responsibility also, for not informing golfers of course conditions.

Temporary Greens!

Typically this website informs you of course conditions such as aerations but unfortunately not this time. Did not find out they are using temporary greens until after I paid for the round and was already there so still played. Don’t even take your putter once on the green!

Halifax Plantation GC Review 6.25.2021

The course was laid out well, and the pace of play was fast. I.e., it was not crowded at all. However, the greens were being refurbished and we had to play temporary greens all the way through. Not so fun. But other than that, the course was fine. I'll play it again later this year when the permanent greens are back in play.

Great layout!

The course layout is awesome. Little to no water is my only gripe but elevated greens with crazy break on almost every hole. The greens are in the process of being redone but definetely playing it next year as they will be crazy fast. Definetely a tournament quality course.
