Solid Local Course

I played this course in fall. Being a local I noticed that the course is being maintained much better than years previous. The only glaring flaw was that the bunkers are not well kept. Fall prices were amazing but it looks like their summer rates are a bit high. Giving a full five stars due to the friendliness of the staff and the value.

Would not consider this “up north” golf

If you’re looking for “up north” golf, go elsewhere. Not much to this course layout.

I went in mid May and the course was not in good shape. I give them the benefit of the doubt because it’s early in their season, but the prices should be reduced accordingly.

Below are an example of conditions of the rough and tee boxes throughout the course. Dandelions, uncut rough, and leaves from last season made it nearly impossible to find your ball unless it was in the fairway.

Be mindful that booking an early tee time could mean you are delayed because of frost. My 0700 tee time was incrementally pushed back 2 hours due to “below freezing temperatures”, although it was as warm as 53 degrees and I was still told to wait.

With that said, the pace of play was great. 0900 on a weekday, i didn’t see a body the entire round. Maybe there’s a reason for that.

First bad experience at this course in years !

No ranger , no course control.
4 , yes FOUR groups backed up ALL ON THE SAME HOLE . A foursome , a twosome, a twosome, a twosome and a foursome were ALL waiting for 6 holes for a foursome all ahead of us stacking up the course like cordwood for all of the 9 holes !! Gruesome and excruciatingly slowwwww round to say the least. Have ALWAYS had good luck at this course until today , and there is NO excuse for allowing the course and ONE foursome group to bring the WHOLE course to a standstill EVERY shot for 9 holes...... Ugh

Plenty of Trees

The course winds through trees but the fairways are generous enough if you can hit them - if not --. Grass was a little high in the fairways - needed a cut. Greens were in good shape and true.

Course is well maintained. Putting greens are in very good condition. Most fairways are open with minimal difficulty. Would play again and definitely recommend to others.

Amazing course for money

For the price, you can't go wrong with this course. You have the option of playing either 18 hole course or 9 hole. You can play either or during twilight time.

Okay Course for $10

We played the Spruce course for $10 on a Hot Deal. That’s about all it’s worth. The greens were rolled well, but the course was wet in many spots when it should have been fairly dried out after three days of hot weather. The bunkers weren’t maintained, the tee boxes needed to be cut, and the food was mediocre at best. Even the beer cart needed a brick as a break. For $10 it might be worth it, if it weren’t for the fact that there was no ranger to keep the pace of play up. My fiancé and I were a twosome that a slow as molasses threesome wouldn’t let us pass. We won’t be playing here again, even for $10 a player.
