Take what you can get

Was the only place that had available tee time. Fairways were ok, greens not so great. Prices were good so it is a good value.

Good, not anything special.

I played with 1 friend and the pace of play was great. In and out easily. Both of us are by no means spectacular golfers but we managed to birdie and par some holes. Cart girls were still out and about checking in every 25-30 mins, great job. Overall good experience and will keep coming back.

Management doesn’t care

I played the day after Thanksgiving the weather was nice how to play anywhere at the end of December is A Plus in Maryland.
The condition of the cost was fair at best there were large spots of no grass on greens, Since most of the holes are par threes you would expect there to be sand not dirt Mixed with rocks in the traps
But what I don’t understand is that the very many bushes placed for errant balls planted by the course are all sticky bushes preventing you from getting your balls

Classic WSGC!

This place is always a great time in the people that work there are wonderful. You just Gotta know what you’re getting into when you go to Willow Springs. Executive course that is getting better all the time but it’s not in great shape overall. Go to Willow to practice your skills or take and you golfers there to learn.

Needs Work

Greens are in need of repair, hopefully next spring. Also, many fairways. However, good basic layout for exec type course and good potential with some TLC and money. New ownership could be a good sign.

Was Hoping For Better

Today was the first time in a while I had played Willow Springs....the first since the clubhouse burned down. I don't know if I will go back again. To begin with, the lady running the cash register was easily overwhelmed, and it caused me to miss my tee time. I also was charged extra for riding in a cart by myself, even though 1 guy in my foursome walked and the other 2 were father and son and rode together. The starter was not helping with the stress level of the cashier by radioing in that she had 9 singles waiting to go out, even though no one went out behind us for at least 30 minutes. On the back nine, the starter (Kim) became the ranger. She yelled at me for driving in the area between 16 and 17...which I kind of understand with 16 being a par 3....but I also was careful to stay away from 16 and toward 17 while looking for my tee shot off 16. (I'll also note the group in front us was routinely driving up to the green on most holes.) Then, on 18, I was helping the other guys look for their balls and then drove to my ball, which was about 100 yards out. Here comes the ranger yelling at me again to get my cart back to the path. I'm 100 yard out on a par 4....my cart on the fairway should not be an issue! This isn't the best-maintained course to begin with....and you know that going into your round. But I felt it was ridiculous for the ranger to be harassing me, especially on #18.

Something About It

Nothing fancy here. No PAR 5s. Played a handful of times and always enjoyed myself.
