I never have a bad time at this course it just beats me up now the pricing I put three the reason why because you can play other courses for the same amount of price and it's a little bit longer but besides that the course was kept well very well greens were very receptive there a little wet in the morning but they'd read out in the afternoon and the ball start of the Roll nice time I felt like I cheated myself because I opted for a cart when I could have walked the curse I got lazy I lost two clubs guess what I found them and they brought them to me so that's a plus plus you know when you lose some clubs early in the round it could just bust your bubble and for them to have it at the end of the night was a great great great pick me up so once again I recommend this course four and a half Stars

I played this course for the first time with a friend yesterday. While the cost was a bit more than I expected, I was impressed with the course. Overall, it's fairly well kept and shows minimal wear even through it was quite busy. The holes are nicely laid out and interesting. Despite it being mid day on a sunny Saturday, the pace of play was quite good. We finished in about 4 hours despite a 15 minute delay on the 9th hole. I look forward to playing this course again.

I really like this course and I play it often but always one of the earliest groups out on a weekend morning.

Going at 1:30PM on a Sunday almost made me feel I would never return. The pace of play was not glacial, more like continental drift ...it crawled on at a pace that would have embarrassed a snail. By the time our 3 got to the par 3 seventh there were 3 groups on that hole. We made the 4th. I don't know all the reasons why but Sunday afternoons will not be my golf time anytime soon.

Spring Valley is in great condition. The greens were just a tad on the slow side, or maybe it was because we played late in the day, a little lumpy, but that is to be expected from Poanna grass.

Conditions were perfect as the temps were in the low 80's and very light wind. We played in under 3-1/2 hours which is always a joy, never had to wait the entire afternoon. Couldn't make a putt today, but that is just Golf, certainly not the fault of the course.

What I enjoy the most of Spring Valley is the condition in which it's kept on a consistent basis...good tee boxes and fairways...great greens. The course has two signature finishing holes in the front and back nine.

I have played Spring Valley over 850 times over the last 30 years. The course has been improved almost every year since the early times. The greens are tough to read, but fair and accept a ball that has been hit high in the air.

Me and my golf bud played in exactly 3 hours, and it could have been faster if he was any good at the game.... that said the conditions were great except for the heat, greens in excellent shape, a little slow because they are cutting them a little longer considering the weather during the last few days. You just have to keep hydrated and stay in the shade as much as possible.

To begin with the staff are always friendly. The course is well groomed and maintained. This par 70 course wanders up and down the hill sides. Three holes tee off over water. It is challenging but fun!
