I've played here maybe 10 times over the past couple years and this was the worst shape I've seen the course when "in season". The rough was crazy high. The greens were VERY slow and bumpy. The fairways were decent.

The lowlight of this days experience was the staff being completely rigid about what I was told a city policy. The policy evidently is that Golf Now times can NEVER tee off earlier than their time.

This was a very slow day. I signed up as single as a 12:32 tee time. I was on the putting green (near the 1st tee) at 12 and saw that nothing was happening on the tee and hadn't been for quite some time. I decided to ask the shop if I could tee off early and was met with a very firm and defensive "Absolutely not".

It's just such a ridiculous policy, when it would obviously make zero difference to anything. Last year I was met with the same rigidity and was forced to tee off with a foresome with 4 open holes in front of us. Right after us there were 3 groups of local "speed golfers" and the marshals were pressuring us the entire round, even though we played in 4 hours.

This kind of situation would be avoided if they just used a little common sense and didn't treat Golf Now customers like 2nd class citizens.

This place is absolutely outstanding and fabulous. I paid $15 to play and would pay $40 to play this place and still feel as tho I was getting a bargain. Very well groomed all around. Very wide and huge greens. Greens are fast undulating and hard to read. Easy enough for beginners and hard enough for the pros. Definitely will be back to pay this course many times.

The weather was great the day we played but the golf course was not that crowded. Pace of play was normal.

The golf course lay out is a bit tough for intermediate female golfers but the fairway condition was good. The greens have been aerated recently but it was acceptable. The staffs were friendly . Overall I highly recommend this golf course.

Superior public course. Greens, fairways and traps in very good shape. Rough is high in many places. They use some kind of fertilizer (?) that will leave blue marks or spots on your ball and club. Staff very friendly. Our foursome had some slow players, but player assistant did not say anything to us. (Group behind us may not have been pleased.) Finished in 4hrs., 15 mins. on a Thursday morning.

The course was in excellent condition. Fairways were precisely cut, Greens were beautiful, perfectly cut and rolled, and very fast. Yardage markers on cart paths were newly painted. Best condition course in the area.

Clustered spires has it all!! A mix of scenic and city views. Challenging but rewarding layout that certainly penalizes missed fairways and greens. Greens are in great shape with the recent rain although they always seem to be in great shape. Overall a great value for the buck and with the awesome guys in the pro shop I always recommend people here.

I am impressed how the course is well-manicured. The only concern is lot of sand filled on tee boxes but they will be pefect someday. The greens are awesome and the ball is easily roll up and down.

I've heard about this course for a few years. But whea I looked at it online the photos did not look too appealing. But my son has been playing it and recomended Clustered Spires to me. Wide open, great greens, but penalizing rough. Excellent layout. I will add it to the regular rotation.

Great course for the value, hope to play there again soon. The fairways and greens are in great shape but you have to stay out of the ruff. With the rain it's thick enough you just have to take your medicine and wedge out to the short stuff. Those ruff to ruff shots definitely cause some extra stokes!

A very nice well maintained course. Played one of my best rounds on the front until the train wreck occurred heading into # 10. Very, very slow with no ranger in sight. Had to quit on #12. Very disappointed with that. Seems like a course that's played a lot. As it should be because of its great condition and scenery. Hope to definitely play again.
