Great course but needs work

I've played this course a dozen times over the summer. It's always in fantastic shape. Played last week and the greens were in terrible shape and leaves were all over the course. Couldn't find ball even if it was 2 yards off fairway.

Don't waste your money

Hands down one of the worst kept courses around. Greens are unplayable. No mention (or warning) from staff or signage in the pro shop. The insult is that they have raised the price while the quality of the course has gone down. More attractive deals in the area, with significantly better conditions.

Reminded why I usually don't book here

Iam reminded why I'd don't book here. The course track is fun but the greens are atrocious. It should not be considered a green but more like a fairway or temporary green. I think they had 1 decent green but was so slow due to over growth. I will not block here again until they get the greens worked out. I was stunned to hear that they were hosting a tournament. Greens can't be putted on, so save ur money and play golf elsewhere.

This course had terrible greens

Approx 6 greens were temporary. The others were fuzzy with bare spots.i was not told by GOLFNOW when I booked. I would never have booked. I am so disappointed. I paid for the 3 other members in my group. The total round cost 110.00.

BEWARE

Lake Spivey currently has several “temporary greens”. Makeshift fairway greens. Still charging $48.

Course should be closed

Greens are the worse I have ever seen a course. The worst part is I payed full price to play and never got informed about the wholes being moved to the fairway. Nor did I get informed about the greens being 80% fungus and dead and what 20% grass was on them was to thick to put on.

DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE!!!!

THIS COUSE SHOULD NOT BE ON GOLFNOW!!! I played this course on Saturday.The course is in it's worst condition ever. There are six out of the eighteen greens that are makeshift greens, located in the middle of the fairway and nothing but dirt. The remaining greens are very patchy and uncut/rolled. This course greens are totally under construction, are should be. AGAIN DON'T WASTED YOUR TIME AND MONEY.......

Worst-case greens ever

Every green was under construction. Multiple fake greens without any indications from staff or management or on the svore cards.
Total waste of time and money.

Disappointing

Bar and restaurant was closed. No cart girls. Pace of play was slow. Lots of temporary greens I guess they were renovating the original ones? Greens that were playable were in poor shape. Super slow. Layout was pretty cool. If it was maintained properly, would be a fun course.

Greens in Repair

About half the greens are closed so they have a lot of temporary greens throughout the course. They should at least put a note in golfnow AND reduce the rate. Had we known about the condition of the course, we would've played elsewhere. The greens that aren't closed are in terrible condition so they should just close the course long enough for a proper repair. Fairway greens are not fun. I'll wait at least 18 months before considering a return to this course.
