There are two 18-hole courses at Reid Memorial Park Golf Course, the North and the South. The courses have been providing one of the greater Springfield area's best golf values for over 40 years. The championship North Course is the longer and more challenging of the two. The South Course is open and walkable while the North Course features a hillier terrain with elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. Mature trees frame the large, slick greens and there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout. Many locals consider it to be one of the toughest golf courses in the area. Though there are different tees so that you can play to your skill level, beginners may want to stick with the South Course, which still has challenges but is more player-friendly than the North.

We are playing on NOV 9th mind you! The greens were airfied 4 weeks ago and you can't tell!. they added sand appropriately and brushed it in the whole green. They putted like it was July! Plenty of work still being done by maint personell. Very few places where the leaves have not been cleaned up and there are a bunch of trees. Very impressed for November golf and the price was right!

I play this course a lot and today it was in great shape. The staff is super friendly and the course is in excellent shape. The North course is difficult I've been playing out most of my life . They've already completed aeration in the course has come back beautifully the greens are bear the fairways are in great shape. You can book it on GolfNow with a hot deal for around $10 and between noon and one. I recommend playing it before the seasons over.

This is a beautiful course with mostly open fairways with trees on the sides. Has some interesting blind holes and a few water hazards. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is that not every hole is marked, so you really need to consult the course map if you are not familiar with the course. We will definitely play here again. Had a great time and a beautiful fall day.

Grass a little too long in rough. Lost balls common. Course layout was hard to follow. Seemed like it had been changed from original layout. Had trouble knowing where the next tee was and had to cross in front of a couple of tee boxes and pass close to greens to get to the next hole. Need more signage for players who don't come here often. Lots of blind greens and pin placement was brutal. On the sides of hills on the greens in several cases.

I always enjoy playing on this course. It is always in great condition and the pace of play is great. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The layout is easy to follow with having 2 courses. And for $10 as a hot deal, you can't beat that price anywhere. I will definitely be going again soon.

Love playing here because the layout is different in comparison to other local golf tracks. Has a good mix of easy scoring holes and good luck making par. Conditions are good for a public course that receives a fair amount of play. Greens were rolling well. Pace of play is horrendous and we skipped four holes just to get under the 4 hour mark. Worth playing even with the slow play aspect. Will play here again!

Paid $27 for 2 people riding. Good course for the money. I had not played the South course in a couple of years, so it was a relatively new experience for me and totally new for my golf buddy. The greens are challenging and since it has been dry lately they were extremely had to hit and stay on. Although not as challenging as the North course, I would recommend the South course for a change of pace.

I have played this course for many years and then started playing courses all over Ohio. I was really shocked when after 3 holes I caught up with a five some of golfers. Needless to say a 3 hour day of golf turned into a 5 hour day. When I was finished I noted several five some teeing off.

I will never play this course again.

Very nice course, greens were fast, but in good condition. Not much water to contend with, and NO sand traps. Overall, a very nice course. Note that Reid has two courses, and both are very nice. Great value for golf, especially when one books a "hot deal"

This is a wonderful old woods course that is interesting and challenging. It was in excellent condition the day we played. My only complaint is we played in midafternoon and for our last four holes they brought out cart loads of junior high golfers for each hole and told us to just play through them. Frankly, this sucked. They were talking while you are trying to play and no one wants all these boys hanging out around the green while they are trying to play.
