Reid Park Golf Club - North Course
There are two 18-hole courses at Reid Park Golf Club, the North and the South. The courses have been providing one of the greater Springfield area's best golf values for over 40 years. The championship North Course is the longer and more challenging of the two. The South Course is open and walkable while the North Course features a hillier terrain with elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. Mature trees frame the large, slick greens and there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout. Many locals consider it to be one of the toughest golf courses in the area. Though there are different tees so that you can play to your skill level, beginners may want to stick with the South Course, which still has challenges but is more player-friendly than the North.

Best shape course around for November
We are playing on NOV 9th mind you! The greens were airfied 4 weeks ago and you can't tell!. they added sand appropriately and brushed it in the whole green. They putted like it was July! Plenty of work still being done by maint personell. Very few places where the leaves have not been cleaned up and there are a bunch of trees. Very impressed for November golf and the price was right!
Played this course a month, wanted to play it again. Tough course, but fair. You are not penalized for good shots, but you are for bad shots.
Course was in great shape and the pace of play was awesome. I will come back.
Will be playing there again
Course was perfect. Harder than most that I play, but you are rewarded for good shots, and penalized for bad ones. The gentleman that I golfed with did ace the par 3 #4 hole.
This was my first time playing here.
The positives: Staff is very friendly. Greens fees were reasonable($34 w/cart). The course was in great condition (2 exceptions were the recently aerated greens and the sand traps) and the layout is challenging. The course is great shape as well, with nice fairways and challenging rough. It was worth the trip from Columbus, but a bit far for regular play. Excellent food offerings beyond Hot Dogs and brats. The cheeseburger was fantastic.
The negatives were the facilities are basic at best. Felt like I was at a state park, actually. An old one. The greens were fast and challenging, but the recent aeration was a surprise. There is only one thing that is a terrible negative: the sand traps. I don’t know if they have plans to work on them, but that must babe the next project if they are going to continue. They are sand, but almost as much rocks and dirt in them as there is sand. Their golf carts are overdue for replacement as well.
If I lived 15-20 minutes closer, I would come back and play again. They have a membership deal going on that would be a great value, but I live too far. Hopefully they get the sand trap situation resolved, because it is a bit of a gem.
Not for beginners
First time playing here. Drove 45 minutes out to play the first nice sunday of the year. Fairly packed on tee times and people just jumping in between people who reserved a time. Few people hitting breakfast balls here and there which is fine, but the moment I hit one its a problem even though we are waiting on people in front of us. Guy behind us felt entitled since he was a member to police everyone else's day, but besides the point. Maps on the scorecard were misleading as to which direction the hole went and no guidance from the tee boxes either. Really nice fairways, and tee boxes weren't too beat up. No rakes for sandpits and the greens were fast. I'd say if you're a beginner/novice this isn't the course for you. They do have a really appealing "unlimited play" for members deal. If i lived closer I would probably take advantage. Not a bad course overall, but I don't think I will be coming back
A very good course worth a nice afternoon in warm weather
It was very cold and windy day with less than 10 people playing. But I found the north course layout is interesting and fairways are in general narrow, which means you have to shape your shots to get good scores. Definitely will come back on a warm day to play again.
First time playing here. Course layout is exceptional and very challenging. If bunkers were in better shape over the whole course, this would have been 5 star. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking for a challenge
For late September corse was in superb shape. I love playing here.
Reid Park North
The overall course conditions were very good. There are some odd holes with extreme slope to the greens but overall the layout is good. It would be good if they had a combination of tees for senior golfers on some holes. For example, on 14 play the white tees but on 15 play the gold tees.
Love playing this course. Course was in great shape for late September. Greens were hard and fast, sometimes too hard. About half my balls hit the greens in regulation and rolled off. Other than that, I’ll be looking to play the North course again before the end of the golf season.
