Course Reviews


I don't know if the rude management or the unkempt condition of the course was what put me off; this course definitely sits atop NCs do not play list.

At $18 senior rate, this has to one of the best bargains in my experience. The course is currently (June 2013) in great shape. My only criticism was the some holes lacked distance markers and there weren't distance markers on the par 3 tees.

Have been a member at Plantation for over 9 years. It is a shot makers course. You have to be able to hit your target if you want to score well. The greens are usually fast with a good deal of break. The staff is friendly and it is a great value for your money.

There are several better choices for the money in this area, if not, pay more to play somewhere else. The back 9 is the worst 9 holes of golf I've ever played.

The description doesn't tell you much. So, I thought I would.

The course starts out with a short par 4 that from an elavated tee, which allows the player to stand above the hole and see the entire 310 yd downhill par 4. As long as a player doesn't go over the line of large oak trees to the right, and can avoid going over the green, with his/her tee shot or second shot, this is a very birdieable hole. Next, is a short Par 5. At 470 yds, a good tee shot is all that is required to hit this green in two, just avoid the houses and OB to the right, oh and the long bunkers guarding the sides of the this large green. Hopefully one will be able to score well on those two holes, because the golf course starts to bite back now. Number 3 is a 450 yard par 4, that almost always plays into the wind. There is OB left and right off the tee, and the landing area of the fairway is about 20 yards wide, because of a huge oak tree overhanging the right side of the hole. #4 is a 420 yard dog leg left par 4 that requires a long iron or hybrid tee shot followed by the same. The fairway is very tight, about 20 yards wide, leading to an elavated green, with a large valley to the left of the green and an even bigger one without much grass to the right. #5 is a simple 140 yd par 3, just don't fall short into the hole's only defense; A steep downhill slope off the front of the green leading to a pond, a.k.a., water hazard. #6 is the infamous hole of The Plantation. A 550 yd Par 5 on which the fairway is cut out of the side of a gigantic hill. At one point, about 270 yds off the tee, the fairway narrows down to about 15 feet wide. The widest part of the fairway is about 20 yards wide, and this is at about the 100 yds out stakes. On the left side of the hole is a steep uphill slope, leading up to woods, and OB. On the right, there is a steeper downhill slope, leading to once agian, trees and OB. The hole remains this way all the way through the green. Things don't ease up now. #7 is a 185 yd par 3 with a pond starting 5 feet in front of the tee box and ending 20 feet short of the green. 20 feet left of the green are woods and OB. A lateral hazard guards the right side of the hole, so this is the time for the shot of the day. #8 is a 335 yd hole that may allow a player to get one back, if one is not too aggressive. The tee is elevated and a creek runs across the hole at about 170 yds from the tee. After this, the hole slopes back up to the green. To the left of the fairway are a few trees and deep rough. There is OB all the way up the right side, and the green is severly sloped from right to left. #9 is an uphill 410 yd dog leg right par 4 that usually requires a 265 yds tee shot followed by a 175 yd second shot, because of the slope. The back nine seems to become a completely different course. Now long irons become the only choice for most tee shots. #10 is a 300 yd 90 degree dog leg right par 4. The fairway is flat for the 185 yd tee shot, but then it turns on a right angle to a downhill slope, ending at the green and a pond that guards its left hand side. The entire hole has OB on all sides. #11 is a 315 yd dog leg left par 4. OB and woods line the left side of the hole, while a hazard guards the right side of the landing area of the fairway, which is about 190 yds off the tee. The green is elevated with a sheer drop off on its right hand side. OB guards the green left and long. Twelve is the road hole at The Plantation. Cedar lane, a local and residential road of Reidsville, runs along the left hand side of the green. On the other side of the road lays property that is part of the famous Chinqua-Penn Plantation, for which the course is named for. The hole is 180 yds with trees on the right that sometimes cause need for a cut shot if the pin is on the right quarter of the green. Especially deep rough surrounds the green on all sides. #13 is a hilly 320 yd par 4 with OB left and trees right. The tee shot is blind becuase of a hill going up to about the

Don't walk this one

This is target golf, for sure. The course if full of hills and valleys and you better hit it straight or "hello OB". The front has two horribly laid out holes: #6 a par 5 set up on a hill with no room for error or lost ball and #7 a 180 yard par 3 with water to the green and OB on both sides, its either on the green or out of play! Other than that, its a nice course with plenty of challenge. The back is fun to play... only if your riding!
