Magnolia Plantation Golf Club
Course Needs Work
Difficult course with several forced carries and actually 2 on one hole. Fairways and tees in rough shape due to lack of water, apparently repairs are needed but unfunded. Luckily, greens are in decent shape keeping the course in playable condition. Lovely area with nice homes and forests with mature trees everywhere. If your not straight and long in some cases, bring lots of balls. Plenty of water to challenge you.

Using golf now we purchased a tee time at 1pm.
Arrived at noon and as the course was empty we were let out to play immediately!
This was totally unexpected as we played at Magnolia
A few weeks earlier and we waited for 20 minutes for a cart and only played nine!
The course was in good shape and has a number of holes with a high risk/reward ratio.
There are numerous opportunities to view wildlife which added to an enjoyable round.

Similar in quality to Plantations @ Leesburg Otter Creek,Golf Hammock Golf & CC, & Sandpiper G&CC.
1PM tee time w/ buddy. The course in in good shape. I don't know what the bad review was about. It is a great lay out. Has a few extremely challenging holes w/ forced carries onto the greens. There is water in play. Most holes are tree lined or tree & water lined. Tee boxes could be nice but playable. Fairways are pretty plush. Elevated greens are in good condition rolling true & fairly fast. Was speaking w/ one of the grass cutting guys & he had good things to say about the the new head grounds keeper & how he brought it back to this condition. Battery powered carts have windshields but no rain cover in back for golf bags. Will definitely come back to play it again. The Wildlife is great. I saw 8 Deer & Turkeys on 1 of the Par 3's.

Course was wet but cart paths underwater
When we played it was raining when we started. The cart paths were under water but the course was good and drivable. Lots of wild life and very interesting course.

Lots of wildlife to be seen at this fun, water filled course!
First time playing this course. It is located inside an expensive gated community (houses either close to $1 million) but there houses are not hit-able. Course was reopened August 2014 and they have shown lots of improvements from what I have heard. The overall conditions are actually pretty good. The rough is thick and does need some improving/maintenance. Tee boxes were pretty decent and the fairways were great. Greens were awesome on about 16/18 holes with the other two just showing slight loss of grass.
There is water on just about every single hole. Nothing too terrible hard if you can keep your ball in the fairway as water did either line the left of right side of holes or there were a few holes that you did have to hit over water to get to the green. If you are an average or below average golfer, bring a few extra balls and make sure you have your ball retriever!
I saw probably about 20 turkeys, 15 deer, turtles, and alligators. The deer were even out as late as 11am and they just ran around all over the course including just sitting on the green while we chipped on it.
I would play here again and I recommend playing here if you haven't had a chance. Looks like the pro shop is also in process of being renovated.

The course was not in the greatest shape. We payed for golf and lunch. Played golf and went in to the club house for lunch. Ordered lunch and an hour and ten minutes later we still were not served any food. So we got up and left. Will not play there again.

Have played this course off and on for 8 months. Potentially a high value course. Recent changes have improved greens and fairways. Some updates such as 150 markers help. Still needs a few more markers and other convenience items but course does not deserve some of the reviews it has based on todays conditions. The views are great what with deer and Turkeys much in sight

Well worth the money. Nice course very quiet.
Excellent course for novice to intermediate with lots of water and wildlife. I really do not understand some of the negative reviews; the course was very nice and in pretty good shape. Quiet course with now pressure midweek. Facilities nice but nothing special on the plain side. There were some chiggers biting on the back 9.
