it is late fall, so the Bermuda is dormant, but the greens here are bent, so they were green. Greens on the front were great, but the back nine had some issues as many were diseased/stressed in places. Layout is nice, but homes are just outside the cart paths, and they have a lot of OB Stakes and markings immediately to the right of the paths. Lots of leaves on course, but it is that time of year. pace was great. I was alone, so played two balls. Friendly staff, decent practice area. If I have time to squeeze in a round before a flight, I would play again because it is very convenient to the airport, just 15-18 minutes away.

Always wanted to play this course. Great price! Course conditions were average. Greens conditions were average and pretty soft. Have to clean mud off your ball every green. For the price it was fun. Played pretty fast.

My family and I drove 45 minutes on Sunday to play. The weather was perfect but that is the only thing that was. Upon entering the clubhouse to check-in I noticed it is a very tired facility. It is in desperate need of updating. From the paint to the carpet, pictures, furniture...the entire clubhouse needs an overhaul!

After checking in and getting some range balls we headed to the driving range. The range was actually Ok and I thought...ok so the clubhouse is in need of an up-grade but the clubhouse is not why I came it's because of the course. Well, the course conditions were similar to the clubhouse. Tee boxes un-level and sparsely covered with grass, the fairways were play-able but thin and bare in places. The greens were not bad on the front but the back had several burned out areas. My suggestion would be this; if you are looking for a place to take your beginner golfer, this is a decent choice. But if you are an avid golfer and know how to play I suggest you fine another course.

The starter took time to give us some caddy tips for various holes before teeing off and again at the turn and personally thanked us 3 or more times for coming to play the course.

The course is beautiful. The layout offers challenges that makes every round enjoyable, however not excessively demanding in that you are sweating out every hole. The tee boxes, sand traps, and greens are all in very good condition. The differntiator that makes this course special is the staff. I had not played this course in 10 yrs but this yr I have had the pleasure of playing 3 rounds of golf and have been overwhelmed by how great the staff is. Geoff in the clubhouse is great! During each round The Starter provided helpful info about the course and was very friendly. He also rides out to the parking lot AFTER the round to let us know how much he appreciated our visit. I also received a thank you email the next day.

Far too many courses these days have decided that all they have to have as a golf course and people will come Lake Spivey is a great course but what makes this place special is the staff. They clearly understand that customer service is an opportunity to exceed the customer's expectations. They exceeded my expectations and I look forward to my next round.

If everyone keeps up with repairing divots and ball marks, Lake Spivey will continue to be a top rated course in my book.

Greens are in fantastic shape. Fairways and tee boxes could use some work, but if I had to choose, keep spending the money on keeping the greens nice. They were a little slow, but they rolled true. Enjoyed the day. Pace of play on Masters Sunday was slow, but they told us it would be that way at the start.

Short and sweet....tee boxes and fairways have a long way to go at this point. It was terribly matted out there. Greens were "ok" and staff (inside and out) were great. Overall, I was disappointed as this is one of my favorite places to visit.
