Golf Advisor: Top 25 Value Courses in the U.S.
Disappointing patron experience.
Tee time of 1020. Foursome behind us, who said nothing to us, caught us on 7 but never waited more than 5 min (they were better than us, couldn't tee until we were on our second stroke) had marshal tell us to keep pace after completing hole 10 at 1230. Let the foursome behind us play through and still finished 18 in 4 hours, 15 minutes. (After waiting out a couple of downpours.)
First time on this course. Why is "pace" determined by fastest players? It takes a minute to put divots back and repair ball marks, a courtesy that we saw nobody else engaging in.
Not worth the visit
Very poor condition: (1)green plugging done too late in the year, (2)very poor greens not true and lots of equipment damage, (3) poorly maintained, (4) need to be careful of physical injury due to unexpected physical hazards, (5) due to poor condition many players don't attend to ball marks and tee/fairway divots, (6) club house availability is unpredictable! All a result of very poor course management!
In dire need of better management!
There currently isn't any restaurant facility, and it's my understanding from the members I was playing with, the club house management is rather poor and is blamed by members for not being to retain restaurant service.
It was also disappointing when we arrived at the 10th tee, the pro-shop had allowed 2 groups to tee-off in front of us, thus making us wait for 20+ minutes! And according to the members, this is common practice, especially when accommodating non-members who have paid for their round!
The course condition was also quite poor due to recent flooding. An event that, explained to me, occurs quite regularly this time of year!

Great afternoon of golf.
played with 3 men from Salem.
Course is in good condition. Have played
here 9-10 times this summer, always
been a positive experience .
Fast pace and well manicured, but...
...the course was abnormally wet (fairways, rough, and greens all soft). I am not sure why because it hasn't rained much at all in the last several months. I had several plugged balls throughout the round -- good thing for "winter" rules. Overall, Spring Hill Country Club is a fun course with a great layout and a must play if you're in/near Albany...especially if they are offering more HOT DEALS!
The staff was friendly. The course was in good shape. The greens were well groomed. All in all a good experience.
No computer no fun!
Very disappointed in the staffs capability or lack of to take cash for food and beverages because their computers were down, Really? Take out a pen and paper mark it down and take the cash! What a let down!
Nice, old established course kept in good condition. Reasonably long with sand and some water hazards. Walkable but more fun to take cart and carry craft beer available in beautiful clubhouse.
Very nice course to play
My wife and I played what is known as "Spring Hill" to us. The course was in very good condition, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (except for the ever-present mis-hits, but that's not the course's fault!)
Course was in great shape. First time players will have a little trouble on where to hit it, but will still like course.
This was a great place to play!! Course in great shape but need some ball washers.
We had a 2:58 tee time. when we arrived a member was hammering the help at the desk, she wanted to be let out or placed some where on the course. The gentleman kept explaining it was full. He handles himself very professional and we started on time.
My friend and I got paired with a couple of jerks and no way to separate from them. Don't go to this course unless you like to play with snobby people and you like to play a relaxed pace of play.
Good course - snippy staff member
Nice course but somewhat snippy staff member. Paid for 18 w/cart but was teamed with another person who already had a cart. When I stated I had paid for 18 w/cart staff said in a pretty surly tone "That's what you're getting". That should be stated in their disclaimer. Fortunately, turned out to be a good day but, since the other person had paid for 18 w/cart he didn't get what he paid for either. Not enough to keep me from going back but, will consider other courses first. I will say, the last time I played there, the staff person (different one) was spectacular and went above and beyond.
Usually well kept
This time around they had just sanded the greens, the rough was long and had clumps of grass from mowing. It is the beginning of the season.
This course is usually very well kept and the staff and members are very friendly and helpful.
Great condition, just soggy
The course was not an issue, the oregon rain was. It didn't rain that day but the two weeks or awful downpour made the course a bit soft. Lost a few balls that were just off the fairway from plugging on the ground. Overall, greens were in good shape, everything was well taken care of and I had a great time. Would highly recommend this course!
good layout with plenty of challenges
greens in great shape and pins fair
