Plantation Palms Golf Club
Plantation Palms Golf Club, designed by David Harman, provides every Tampa golfer with a challenging and rewarding golf experience. The links-style design starts with a welcoming par 5, and then slowly steps up with a mixture of strong par 3s. Just 10 minutes north of Tampa, this course was carved a 400-acre citrus grove that slopes from west to east, providing interesting elevation changes. Water is in play on 17 of 18 holes. Plantation Palms Golf Club has an attractive framing of greens by the use of pine trees, water and large snow-white sand traps. The true-rolling elevated greens have good movement and are a challenge for golfers.

Post Tropical Storm Still Great
Played with buddies the day after Hurricane Nicole. It was wet but not as bad as I have seen after heavy rain on other courses. Still played great, lost some shots to mud and puddles, but still had a blast. Excited to come back soon for a dry round, course was great, pro shop and restaurant were great.
Great course and layout.. just unfortunate we had to play right after a storm so the course was soaked.. will definitely come back to play again when the conditions will be better
stay in the fairway
Pro shop and staff were so friendly. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were in decent shape but the outer fringe around the greens are brutal, either this is the design or maybe they are leaving it long? Don't go off the fairway. Pace of play was slow do to a very slow 4 old guy group. Morning tee time
Pairings and pace of play
Never can understand why singles and doubles aren't paired up to help with pace.
Drainage issue ?
I will start by saying I would play here again. The conditions were mostly good, except many areas were pretty soft or muddy. This course has lots of undulations in the fairways and greens. The greens were in great shape, the fairways were pretty good except the areas where water must pool. It may be a non issue in dry season. They do have a range and putting/chipping area. Balls for the range are extra but a minimal fee. GPS on the carts. Course feels like it plays longer than the yardage
This is such a good course. The track was great!!! The conditions were great!! If I had to nit-pick, there are certain low areas around tees and greens that are really soft (but thats normal down here) and right now the rough is fairly thick (a couple times I walked right by my ball and never saw it) its not a complaint just an observation for you. The cart paths were in good shape and clean. The golf carts were very comfortable with tinted windshields, USB charges, rakes attached, and GPS with Bluetooth connectivity ( I still have to work when I’m playing so it was really nice to be able to keep my phone plugged in and charging instead of being worried about the battery)
Nice driving range, smallish putting green, they have music playing over some speakers around the clubhouse and putt putt course which is really nice (yes they have a nice non-obtrusive putt putt course!).
If you wanted to know something they could improve at…. There are not ball washers on the tees, and unless I totally missed them, there are no water coolers or water/ice machines at the restrooms.
Great place though and I’m glad I found it and will absolutely play again. So much better than some other courses that charge more, they care here and it shows, that’s what matters.
That’s about the only good thing I can say. The staff is friendly, the course is ok but not what it’s all hyped up to be. The pace of play was terrible and nobody let you play through or got mad when you tried or asked. Very open fairways, hard sand bunker’s wasn’t very pleased with the course at all and again it’s hyped up to be 1of the best in area but I wasn’t impressed and doubt I will play there again. I didn’t feel it was worth the money.
Best course in the area. I’ve played Heritage isles, Fox Hollow etc and this blows them away. By far the best course maintenance and you can tell they invest people and resources to maintain its great standards. Greens run true and good speed. Picked this as the last course of the vacation and wish I had played it first and many more times. Can’t believe it’s not rated much much higher. Trust me and play it and see for yourself.
Course is a great layout and in pretty good condition. hard to believe that a golf course in Florida doesn’t have water and ice available… Oh wait, you can buy bottles in the pro shop or from the cart.
Turtles move faster!
Five hours and fifteen minutes! Now yesthey were kind enough to give a rain check but when I went to the pro shop to get it there was some rude guy behind the counter like the replay was coming out of his own pocket! Course was soaking wet and the gps system on the cart gave you no warning before it stopped! This course could be so great as the layout is excellent but the overall condition is poor! Kudos to the cart kids who at the end of my round went searching for my lost head cover!
This remains one of my favorite courses in the area.
The course was in excellent shape despite all of the rain last week. A couple of rough spots but that was to be expected.
Greens rolled smooth and true. The pace of play was very good.
Greens fairways were great condition. tee boxes could use a little work but overall they were fantastic. definitely would come back to play as soon as possible. Beautiful layout as well and the bar and grill was fantastic
Best in Tampa
Staff and pro shop are well equipped and super friendly. Got my clubs re-gripped and lots of ball selections. Layout is top notch, greens are really good and expect them to be spectacular after aeration. Best bang for your buck, bar none.
