Don't pay more than $30

This is a classic old school country club layout that has fallen on harder times, at least financially, and has opened to the public, and it shows in the conditions of the course. From a layout perspective, this is a great golf course, with a lot of character and interesting holes. But the conditions of this course have really suffered as there are patches of grass both in the fairway and in the rough, meaning that you are 50/50 at getting a good lie.

Pace of play was not an issue for me because it was a little wet, and we had misting rain on and off throughout my round, playing solo.

The bottom line for me is that I would not pay more than $30 to play here, no matter when you come to play, as it's a struggle dealing with patches of grass, even on the collars around the greens. Some of it makes it very unfair as you'll never know how your ball will come out of a lie when making contact. Still, if I got a really good deal I would return here and play it again, for sure.

This course will be back

unfortunately the greens were lost this year. However, I have played this course when the bent greens are rolling around 10-11 and true. They layout and views are great and there are good scores out there if you are patient and don't make too many mistakes off the tee. Classic mountain layout and beautiful views. looking forward to checking out again next year when the greens are healed up.

Springdale

Beautiful course, a bit out of the way but worth it. Told under new management, with a little work, could be a gem. Nice layout, beautiful scenery, and fun to play. Pace of play on the back nine was slow but ok. Will play again when in the area.

Weedkiller works

Played at 11:00 on a mon as a single. The 2 foursomes and one twosome insisted I play thru. Once I passes them, there was no one ahead of me. Round took 2.5 hrs.
Tees and greens need some work and fairways have lots of crabgrass areas. Greens ran slow, but no suprises.
The course layout is challenging, even if you hit a straight ball. Especially on the back 9 when there are a lot of elevation changes.
There is a driving range, but no food or snackbar.
Great views

Pace of play was ridiculously SLOW

Groups were quitting and leaving the course due to at least one foursome who were apparently playing some sort of gambling game... There are no rangers on the course to enforce pace of play. My foursome quit on the 15th hole after playing for 4 1/2 hours!

Very slow play!

No rangers on the course to keep up pace of play. Took almost 5 hours and we skipped the last two holes! Weeds all over the fairways, ball mark damage all over the greens. Sad, but this could be a nice course.

Course layout is nice, especially the back nine.
Greens were slow, and the course had a lot of water grass
We overheard a person who I assume was the course superintendent say to a group of members,” give me a chance and I’ll get it where you want, so I assume he was new.
For the price, very fair!

Springdale experience

The scenery is truly amazing throughout the golf course. The course is under new management from the last time we played the course and improvements are in progress. Everyone was very courteous and professional.

Springdale

Springdale offers majestic views of the Western NC mountains. The course is being upgraded significantly, with high quality sand traps and great greens. The fees are most reasonable for the value.

Best golf near Asheville

If you enjoy the mountains go play this course. Yesterday was the 3rd time I have played and I enjoyed it just as much this round as I did the first time. Stunning views all the way through and the course offers different challenges as you go along. The staff were super nice and everything was well kept. The cart paths could use a little bit of repair but the course was in good shape. Some of the greens are starting to have a few brown spots but that is nothing out of the ordinary for the middle of summer. Best bang for your buck for sure. Way better than most of the other courses in and around Asheville. It's always my go to spot for a great round.

Decent Condition

First off, the course has switched the front nine and back nine - the GolfNow app has the old layout and needs to be updated. Springdale is in decent shape. Greens are in good shape, but were very slow on Saturday (need cut). Some of the fairways have rough spots. Bunkers are in great shape. Overall a good course that is improving.

Very nice course

Springdale is quickly becoming one of my favorite courses in Western North Carolina. Fairways are well manicured and the greens are in great shape. This is a fun course to play.

great course but really slow play

I have played this course for years with various owners and the current ones have done a great job in updating the entire course - they switched the nines which I enjoyed.
We had a decent pace going on the front but when we got to the back nine, it slowed to a snail's pace - had to wait over 10 mins. on several holes so wound up playing 40 mins longer than the front which totally compromised our concentration.
There are a lot of new golfers to this course and they tend to hit their balls in "bad" places which then causes many more shots from them - we saw one guy in front of us hit 3 balls into the hazard instead of just dropping it per rules.
The greens were slow to me except 1 or 2 which really were hard to predict the proper speed for longer putts as some greens here are HUGE.

Great Round As Always!!!!

Loving what the new owners and team are doing for this course. It is obvious the work they have put in, between new bunkers, water stations, restaurant, etc. Very excited to continue to play this course!!!
