This Course Is Now Closed

Tried to book a tee time here and found out this course is now closed due to development of the land. The two 18 hole Golden Horseshoe courses are still alive and well.

Left after 7 holes !
.Layout was terrible was hard to figure out how to get to the next hole . On hole 7 we hit 1 ball in the left bunker and one in the right bunker but when we got to them there were no balls anywhere we think one of the ground crew took them not knowing that we were coming up we did see him on the fairway in front of the green . Played the Green Course earlier in the week and it was wonderful!.Sprinklers we’re on when we got there and they said they would shut them off after waiting in a dry spot on the first tee for 10 minutes we went back and they said give it a few more minutes.

This course should not carry the name of Golden Horseshoe

In compare with Gold & Green course, this course seems without any maintenance and the condition, holes layout, putting green, sign are totally under the PAR (even far away to the par).
We are very disappointed and sincere recommend the management suspect to offer this course until its problem corrected.

Somewhat Lost

Enjoyed playing the Spotswood course for the first time.
The variety of the layout was excellent, greens a bit unloved, but terrific value for a practice round for most of your clubs.
The hardest component was just getting to the next hole. There needs to be much better directional signage. I spoke with three groups of other golfers while seeking directions and they all admitted they had a tough time just getting around!
Fun day!

Always Fun

Great little warm up 9 hole course. 6 par 3's of varying length, one par 5 and two par 4's. Pace of play was amazing- at one point I think we were the only ones out there on a Friday morning.

Historic course that will be shutting down.

Spotswood is a great 9 hole course. A Robert Trent Jones course, updates by Rees Jones. Hilly and woody with very small greens. We booked a 7:40 tee time and were almost the only ones on the course. Pro shop super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately it’s been sold to developers so get it while you can. The club will still have the Gold and Green courses but a losing a nice historic gem.

1st Timer

A fun course to play, especially for new golfers, seniors and anyone with only 2 hours to play. It’s a nine hole course that you can play 18 by using different T boxes.
Play while you can before this course goes away!!

Not worth the drive.

After driving 40 miles I was disappointed with the layout of the golf course. In my opinion the golf course is set up for seniors or kids. The next time I drive 40 miles , I will be playing the Gold course.
