PLANTATION PRESERVE GOLF COURSE & CLUB (954-585-5020)
Florida Golf Course Review
Plantation Preserve Golf Course & Club is a 7148 yard par 72 championship course that is located in the heart of the City of Plantation. Opened in January of 2006, this course
provides an upscale golf experience with affordable rates (that top out at just over $100 during the 2006/07 season) for golfers in the SE Florida region. Built on 211 acres that
features 27 acres of natural wetlands, Plantation Preserve features some memorable golf holes, including the challenging par four ninth, with a venerable island green.
The 6,600 square foot clubhouse features a pro shop, restaurant & lounge and banquet/outing facilities that will accommodate up to 160 guests, plus a beautifully landscaped
outdoor terrace. There are locker rooms with showers for both men and women. Members of the community and visitors are able to enjoy a 1.5 mile linear park trail that winds its
way through the golf course and wetland areas. A full service practice facility rests in front of the clubhouse, with targeted grass range, putting greens and 2 short game areas with
sand bunkers. The course features 5 sets of tees that play to distances measuring 7148, 6704, 6250, 5801 and 5175 yards with slope ratings between 112 and 138.
This Audubon certified design presents wide fairways that are often bound by a series of lakes that wind through the property creating some interesting hazards. In all, 13 holes
have water in play in some shape or form and over 80 deep, soft white sand bunkers are located greenside or near the landing areas along the fairways. These hazards, along
with scattered tree and native brush help to define several doglegs that make for an extremely interesting round. They also provide a natural environment that many native
waterfowl and wildlife species call home.
As witnessed in these photos, there is significant mounding on the sides of most fairways, and the green complexes are generally raised and well bunkered. The par threes are
especially beautiful with wood retaining walls framing the green complexes and adjacent ponds on several holes. Manicured conditioning from tee to green plus an interesting
design make this a "must play" in Southeast Florida.
Uplink GPS on all carts provides hole descriptions and accurate yardage from tee to pin. Weather covers on the carts are also an appreciated feature.
