I decided to take Douggiefresh out to Spanos Park. It was his first time playing there. I got off to a great start. We played with a couple guys named Alfredo and rich. We hit it off right away. They were very cool to play with. The course was in fantastic shape for being in the middle of winter. Driving range also was a great layout and you can hit balls off the grass. Overall it was a fantastic time we will play there again thanks Spano’s park and all the employees and people that work there to make it a great great course

would love to play here daily if i lived closer.. the course is so good, but ill call and make sure "Floyd" isn't marshaling the day we play..He's the Marshall that dogged us and messed up our day. he swooped on us at least 5 times about the flippin entry to and off fairway gates! which means we were on point 62 out of 72 times! And being behind, which we weren't.. .. really put a bad taste in our mouth.... Ill play again, but not when "Floyd" is on duty..

Staff at the front desk were friendly and welcoming. We had a twosome and the there was a twosome in front of us. In front of them were two groups of 5. These two groups held everyone up. I don’t mind a fivesome if they play quickly. We had to wait on every hole and our round was complete at 5 hours 20 minutes. Couple that with the twosome behind us that kept hitting into our group, and it wants a pleasant round, words were exchanged several times.

This a a great course, challenging, but fair. Greens run fast and true. Unless they are low handicaps, fivesomea should not be permitted, especially during peak tee times.

Like most Valley bunkers, these were in poor shape. The pace of play was very slow. There was one group of 20 plus handicappers who thought they were on tour and slowed down the entire course. We didn't see a Marshall the entire day.

Great layout, linksy with many deep fairway bunkers, water and, usually, plenty of wind.

Greens softer and slower than in the past but so are everybody else's.
