Greens were surprisingly fast!

I heard stories that the greens got messed up over the winter. They weren’t perfect but they were good and surprisingly fast. Will certainly be back I’ve always liked Lake Spanaway.

Greens and bunkers

All greens were bumpy with bare spots. No smooth rolling surface. Most bunkers had thin wet compact sand. I was in a lot of them.

This course looks like it hasn't awoke from a long winter's sleep. It was dry. The greens need a lot of care and aerification, sanding and rolling is badly needed.

Couse ranger

Needs firing or trained to speed of play!! You don't tell people to speed up when they are waiting for the group in front!! When there is a player in your groul who drives 300 yards, you have to WAIT!

Replayed from the White tees

I am about a 15 handicap from the white tees, and wanted to experience playing the white tees after playing the white/green tees a couple of weeks ago with friends. Despite the hot weather, the fairways are in really good condition. I was in three bunkers and the sand was not a problem. I really enjoyed the round and look forward to coming back later in the month.

Great conditions

This course is a great value and a challenge at the same time. First cut is tight rough was about 2”. Greens were a little slow probably due to watering but true.

Worth the $$$

Solid municipal course. I played it in early June and it was in very good shape. The greens rolled true, not bumpy. (I will say that the people who play there need to fix their ball marks. Normally I'd think it was a group or two in front of us that wasn't fixing their marks but there were 15-20 ball marks on some of the greens.) The fairways were in really good shape too. It was worth the $38 I paid to play the course. The people in the pro shop were friendly too.

It's open

Golfing was great, but with it open, it was full. Everyone kept their distance and the Marshall's were out making sure we were safe. Greens and fairways were in great shape.
