Course in pretty good shape for this time of year. Not a fan of their Covid single cart policy, why do they get to charge extra money when we’re supposed to maintain 6 feet? On a day that didn’t get over 45°, it’s not like they were going to run out of them! Just seems like another chance to gouge us the player.
muni of this quality is rare
Great variety of holes. Nice piece of property, with some changes in topography. No homes along the course. Greens were in good condition. They have a lot of slope and break. What an asset to have a muni of this quality. Can see why it has hosted USGA events. A course of this quality for this price is bound to draw a lot of players.. It was packed and pace of play was slow, our foursome waited on almost every hole. Also, tees and fairways are dormant, with no overseed. Would recommend, as long as you can handle the pace. Maybe bring a book to read.
Good Conditions For November
Spencer T. Olin is one of my favorite St. Louis metro golf courses. This course tests all parts of your game, especially your putting. Lot of slope on these greens.
The conditions were very good for late November. The greens had small aeration punch marks. There was no sand on the greens and these holes really did not affect your putting. The greens were fast and true,
Pace of play was outstanding. The course did allow a fivesome which we played through. You are also allowed to get single carts if you want.
Love this course but every time I am plagued with slow motion golf. 4 hrs for 18 on a Tuesday afternoon is ridiculous what is a weekend like? Do you need a hotel room? 5 somes and yes, even a 6 some today!
Course in its usual great shape, save the standard Metro Least moonscape greens thanks to bumpkins that don’t know how to repair ball marks, cmon hicks, getcha a divot tool for Christmas!!
Awesome layout, above average conditions for October, will be back
I played a partial round a couple years back before thunder and lightning prematurely ended a tournament. Finally got back out there and the course did not disappoint. Best conditions of any public course I've played the past two month that have been very dry. Tee boxes, fairways and greens in great shape. A ton of fun with wide views out of the tee box, rewarded for accurate drives, and technical greens. Staff could afford to smile, but will be back based on the golf, not the warmth of service.
Pace of play
I realized today why I only play Spencer several times per year even though I’m a local. The pace of play as well as the level of clientele is always so bad. Tee times are stacked together and no one ever lets you play through. Great course but when you struggle to finish a round or it takes 5+ hours each time that is what keeps me from playing so often. Even with a good hot deal price.
Great Course in Great Condition
I was really impressed how good of condition the course was for late September. None of the greens were stressed and they are always fast. No aeration yet, so the greens were smooth.
On hole 11, it was nice to see they cleared all the brush/cattails in front of the green.
Very friendly staff at Spencer T. Olin and the price is very reasonable.
course in great shape it was packed we kept pace with the threesome in front of us took a little under 5 hours everybody is playing golf
A wonderful day of golf at spencer t. Played in under -3 hours. Nice conditions and nice people.
One of the top five area courses. Great staff also. Highly recommend.
Everything great but greens are only fair to good
Tees gorgeous fairways great...
no water available because of COVID
Started on 10 fir some reason then a foursome two groups ahead was very slow .. never saw anyone approach them .. had the group in front of us and our twosome sitting on several tees waiting .
A True Gem
Wow! What an excellent golf course with a fabulous layout. All the stories are true and this track is wonderful. A real challenge that requires good and thoughtful shots. Position off the tee is important requiring good shots into the greens. Greens are challenging and would be significantly better if people fixed their ball marks. Staff very friendly. Can't wait to get back there this weekend!
