Great course

Check in was easy because we had used Golf Pass to prepay, weather was cold so there were fewer golfers and we were able to tee off immediately. We never had to wait and no one was behind us, we finished in less than 4 hours.
The course is challenging but the greens were really slow. We will definitely look forward to playing here again.

Driving Range

First thing is the driving range was closed due too mowing, which really affected my foursome. Many of the fairways were cart path only due too being over seeded. The grass in the fairways was so high the balls had no chance of rolling out at all. After a two hour drive to get there this was very Real downer for my group including me.

The Piankatank Golf Course has a very interesting and challenging layout with scenic peaks, valleys and river views. The greens and fairways were in very good condition. Some of the bunkers and tee boxes could have used a little work, which kept me from assigning an overall five-star rating to the course. The staff was most friendly and professional.

Excellent test

So if no one told me prior, I would have no problem believing the front 9 was designed by Mike Strantz. What a great test that just rolls with the landscape. Greens are very good, true and varied in size from tea cups to large ones.

The back nine is nearly completely different to the front nine. You get to number 11 tee and viola! Wide open Florida like holes. It tightens back up on 15 and 16, but opens again for 17, and 18 is an old school finisher to the clubhouse.

So I gave the pace of play a 5, but, I got stuck behind a threesome that watched me, a walking single, walk up to the tee while they were still on the tee, from number 4 all the way until the 18. Just no golf etiquette at all. Annoying but it was still only just over a 4 hour round.

Gonna play this again, maybe early in the week when it isn’t solid from tee to green on each hole.

A little bit of everything

I would have no problem if someone told me Mike Strantz designed the front 9, just goes with the landscape, tons of blind shots, lots of elevation changes, and does not suit the long ball hitter at all. It certainly suits the player who can control their ball, because you have to think your way around the front and out of position will hurt you badly.

And after the 10th hole, viola!, wide open almost Florida like course until the 15th where it is ball placement again. The par 5 16th is interesting with the double fairway, and a tea cup sized green.

All the greens were true, some massive, some tea cups and all in excellent shape. Bunkers were ok, I don’t get into them often when I play, but maybe the edges could have been crisper.

Practice areas are ok, I didn’t see a bunker to practice out of, the putting green is a little crazy on the side of a small hill, and the range is ok.

Has a restaurant, didn’t try it, the guy at the counter was very nice, I was stuck behind a 3 some, who refused to wave me through even though I was on the tee box with them at every par 3 and many par 4’s. At the turn I mentioned it to him and he gave me a 9 hole coupon. He didn’t have to do that, but much appreciated. All in all, it was about a 4 hour round and I was walking, so you can play this pretty quick if you ride.

Gonna have to come back and play this on an early weekday when the player traffic is lighter.

Course in great condition considering lack of rain. Good layout with varying elevations. No blind shots. Front nine very slow play due to the foursome in front of us. They finally let us play through on #11. Short yardage from green (senior) tees. I should have played from white.
