Course was in good condition except there were a lot of low areas that were all mud. Also it was very difficult finding the next hole (very confusing course). Once you are used to the course I guess it wouldn't be a problem.
While local conditions have been dry the course was very wet. Greens were good but fairways were very soft.
Sprinklers stuck in on position for most of back 9 made playing very difficult
Great Day of Golf
Well kept course with a mixture of short and long holes. Enjoyed our time golfing.
Good course great price
The greens were very slow. Course was overall in great condition. Rental clubs were absolute garbage. Not matched.
Great variety of holes in both length and difficulty. Course was in great shape and we had a great day of golf.
The plantation at Crystal River
Despite the fact we haven't had rain in almost 2 months the course was in much better condition than expected. Due to our drought I'm assuming the grass had to be kept longer to prevent burning up etc..
Great little course. Tee boxes were in great shape as were the greens. Fairways are coming in nicely. This course is in better shape than many in the area charging quite a bit more.
Staff is always friendly seems like they are glad you’re here. Will continue to play this Jem
Lots of green stuff that was everything but grass. Lots of brown patches.
Course was overall in poor condition.
They were more concerned about us wearing collared shirts (we did) than about course management. We ended up behind a 5-some who wear very slow.
I see reviews about poor wet conditions. It wasn't overly wet when we played, but I could see where a heavy rain could render this course nearly unplayable.
We booked this as a packaged getaway with my wife and child. The hotel and golf course staff were not friendly and kept reminding us we got this "packaged deal" through a 3rd party and consequently they made "no money" off our reservation.
We had to argue with the golf club receptionist and hotel lobby folks to get everything that was supposed to be included in the package.
It was difficult to navigate through the golf course. There were missing signs for some of the holes, and in some paths we felt we were going through the Walt Disney's jungle cruise in a golf cart, instead of a golf course.
The hotel room was in C+ condition: very dated and noisy (for some reason 2 AC Units were placed in our room (maybe the one mounted on the wall wasn't working properly?) so it was very noisy. The room was clean and housekeeping seemed efficient, but the room seemed stuck in the 1980s: there were broken tiles in the bathroom, the room seemed unpkept with maintenance, and it had uncomfortable mattresses and pillows.
The only saving grace to our weekend at Plantation were the manatee tour and the hotel's swimming pool. The tour guides there were very friendly, made spending time near the manatees a wonderful experience for our 6 year old son, and were gracious, welcoming and happy to answer any and all question we threw at them. The hot chocolate and coffee treat after spending time in the cooler spring water were a great treat. The hotel's swimming pool was clean, well kept and fun for families, and there were several kids enjoying it. The staff serving food and drinks by the pool, though, took forever to serve. I would only recommend people book the manatee tour separately.
Old Florida course
The course is old and in need if an update. General conditions were pretty typical of an old heavily used florida public course. Definitely not worth the price charged.
