Excellent, storable greens

The course is in excellent condition. Best aspect of the course are its greens. Beautiful, clean, pure, fairly quick greens. They roll like a billiard table.

Course had “army worms” or the worms that eat root systems. However the grounds crew was doing everything possible to kill the pests. Outside of that couldn’t ask for more. Greens still pure as ever. Little slower than usual on pace for their greens but still nice.

Side window

I’m not sure I quite understand the “side window”……. When we checked in, the guy did not even offer to let us know if we needed any food items or pro shop items we could purchase them through “the window”…….. perhaps the window is due to Covid??? If so, I am having a hard time understanding why the staff member was not wearing a mask, why he stuck his head up to and almost through the window. If the side window was NOT because of COVID, it was a great inconvenience for those of us who needed balls and like to purchase souvenirs. I felt the customer service was lacking. No warning that the greens had just been punched/ aerated. We didn’t know where to return the the cart when we finished. .

Good wide fairway golf.

Don't go the HWY 35 route if you can help it. This course is just off HWY 72 and HWY 79. Just outside Scottsboro, Alabama.

Best Staff Ever

1) There are two Goose Pond courses. I missed my tee time because I went to the wrong one...my mistake. The staff at Plantation covered for me and actually put me out ahead of a large group. Even the large group of golfers were extremely nice. 2) We all know course marshalls can have a stigma for being jerks. However, my man was one of the nicest people I've ever encountered on a golf course. 3) Even the maintenance guys (who usually look like they hate golfers) were really friendly even though I play fast and ended up with them on the back nine as they were finishing up daily grooming. As an outsider just traveling through, I was treated like an old friend, thank you Goose Pond staff.

Awful course conditions!

The course should NOT have been opened today! It was wet, soggy , muddy and cart path ONLY! Totally unplayable! I’ve been playing this course for 30 years but driving an hour to get there today and paying the GolfNow green fees was not worthwhile! A total waste of time and money!!!

Consistently Good

Some people might say that the cart paths at the Plantation Course are in rough shape and the carts are old and dilapidated.
Others might complain that the crackers sold in the clubhouse are stale, or that the course is a pretty pedestrian layout.
But nobody will ever say that the greens at the Plantation Course aren't excellent or that the course is poorly maintained.
That's what you can expect at the Plantation .. good fairways and good greens. And that's why I keep coming back.

Enjoyable, scoring course.

Always a good time at the plantation course. The greens are pretty small, but run purely. Find them in regulation, and score all day. Confidence building course.

Somewhat Challenging

I like this course. The greens had been sanded so putts were not rolling true. Normally are so much faster. Played after the rain and the course was still in great shape. For the price on golf now hard to beat the price
