Rating 66.6

Spring Valley Golf Club & Lodge, located near the small town of Mercer, sprawls across western Pennsylvania's idyllic countryside. The design utilized the existing landscape, resulting in a course that blends seamlessly into the natural surroundings. The golf course features rolling fairways lined with mature trees and spring-fed ponds that come into play throughout. With different front and back nine designs, it's like playing two courses in one. The player-friendly front nine is flatter and more open, offering plenty of scoring opportunities. Don't get too comfortable though because the back nine transitions to hilly, target golf where accuracy is essential. Be prepared for more bunkers as well. The 10th hole is one of Spring Valley's most memorable -- a severe dogleg right that plays over a ravine.

Fun times

The course was in good shape. The balls were easy to find in the ruff so it didn't hold up play.

Good Warm up course

Interesting little course with two different 9's. Front 9 gives you a nice opportunity to warm up to the course, fairly open and flat. The back 9 tightens up and has much more elevation changes. The shorter distance helps give a confidence boost to start off the season. Price through golf now is very reasonable. Only complaint I have is the tee boxes are hardly flat, hard to find a nice lie to tee up.

Hard as a Rock

Never my favorite course. Take a lot of golf balls. Several goofy holes. Course not happy if you use GolfNow - Probably won't go back this year. Or at least until it softens up a bit. Don't even think of walking this course on the back 9 especially.

Tuesday at Spring Valley

Fun course...very unique. Love to play it at least a few times a year. The only problem is that I lose too many balls!

Very friendly family facility!

It was our first time back to this course since an overnight stay in 2012. I don't know why we didn't get back until now. The owners were friendly (as always) The course has some very interesting and challenging holes, especially #s 4,10, 12, and 16. The only (minor) issue was that a few of the greens seemed to be slower than the others.

I'll play here again

Our foursome played Spring Valley when the course was still being groomed from the harsh winter we had, thus I can't comment on the condition of the fairways and greens. The 18 hole layout was very unusual and challenging. Th first 3 holes are nothing special, BUT the third and tenth holes have surprising green locations - surprising but fun. There's a 250+ yard hole that is all uphill! You really should try this course - it is not boring!
