Whittle is great

The only problem here is people who don’t know golf etiquette. The course is in the best shape it’s ever been in and I’ve been playing there for years. Staff is excellent ,could use a ranger to help with pace that’s all.

Fun Compact Course

Whittle Springs is a great course if you want to put in a quick round! For the value, this course is a no brainer! The conditions was in really good shape! Might want to do some tree trimming on a few holes! I was actually running late due to an emergency job and they were able to still fit us in!

Great place to stay

The green was in perfect condition.
The fairway was fair enough in spite of some debris.
The play pace? Well... I was the first tee-off. :)
It was a really nice neighborhood place to enjoy golf.

Ok

This is a short but challenging course, due to undulating fairways and fast & steep greens. The greens are well kept, but dry, teeboxes are hard and could use work, but acceptable, there is not much difference between fairway and rough. Over a fun, challenging, short course.
