Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Great course for the value. Challenging and interesting layout.
Great Day at The Spur @ Northwoods!
We had a wonderful 18 holes of golf today. The 83 degree temperature and great condition of the greens helped. Still some muddy areas here and there, but overall very playable. Will definitely return ASAP!
Nice greens & tee box
Played course after lots of rain and cloudy weather past week. Greens are very nice and quick. Tee boxes were in good shape too. The course was very wet from too much rain the last week. I anticipate the fairways are solid in the regular season. I plan to play here more.
It was a good coiurse. Pace of play was slow. Had 3 people in front of us hitting multiple shots after errant shots.
Work well done
Within the last year they have redone the greens and it really shows. Extremely smooth putting. They work they have done lately certainly shows. Will definitely play here again.
I was expecting a lot more with them shutting down and fixing the course up. The place needs a lot of work. It’s a $15 dollar course, charging $42 is a joke.
We played the day after the hurricane came through the Columbia area. The course was fine . Fairways and greens were good. Rough was deep and wet. If you don’t hit fairways balls in the rough often sit down in the Bermuda rough and are hard to find. Their new greens are were hard to hold for my group. This is a longer senior course than most we play. We got a great price on Golf Now and it’s well worth the price. Challenging layout .
NIce new greeens
I was amazed and pleased how the new grass (Sunday Bermuda) on the greens have come in after the greens renovation. Awesome job! Will be back. Kudos to the owner (Mr. Rice) who has a sincere interest in making this course better and better. Keep it going, please! Kurt
Tees greens and bunkers all playable good mix of challenges happy to play it again
Course is improving
You can tell the course has been improved in a lot of areas. The greens are now covered with grass and roll very well compared to this time last year. The staff has planted grass in many areas to make the course looked fuller and nicer around all the greens. The only things left now are to fix all the tee boxes. They are horrible and not even level. Several boxes you were hitting out of a depression. It was if they haven't moved the markers in a month or two??? I'm sure the boxes are next on the list.
Go Play The Spur @ Northwoods
The Spur @ Northwoods is the best that I have ever seen it look. The ownership took the time to close the course to get it healthy again and it is amazing.
Slow greens crew and uncut greens still @11am!
The greens crew was very slow and the greens were not all cut even at 11am. The bunkers weren’t all raked, nor the approaches cut. I went to the fourth hole and they were still cutting the green of the 4th about to go to hole 5 at 8:45 in the morning. So a few of the greens rolled fast then the rest were slow and wet. Very detrimental to the score. Otherwise the course was in great shape just speed up the greens crew so the greens are cut for players go out in the morning.
Improving course . Fairways and greens have greatly improved. Senior tees play longer that most courses making it a challenge. Several par fours are long and tough. Our foursome enjoys our hot deal golf tee times there.
Coming Back into Prime
I went to school here at USC way back when, 86 - 91, and lived at The Fairways, apartments on the back 9, for a time and played this course a bunch. Just moved back to Soda City and played it since they put in new greens. Amazing that the greens are as receptive as they are being so new. Lots of trees being removed to help keep green health in a good state. We have received a lot of rain lately so there are some soft spots out there, but not on the greens. Maintenance crew out today doing some good work. Just need to continue to invest in the course esthetics. Great layout with some risk/reward chances. Guy at counter this morning was more interested in ESPN than face time with a customer. The course has a great area for practice and warm up. Range a little scraggily but does the job. Putting chipping greens, 3 of them, are true and in good shape. For the money go play!
Good conditions but course has poor drainage. Very soggy and sloshy shots.
Great value and great staff
The course conditions have really improved. Greens were in excellent shape. The weather turned a little poor and I got stuck behind some groups going off the back 9. Course gave me a 9-hole raincheck. Very kind and considerate. Definitely will play again.
The Spur is BACK!!!
I have played this course many times from 2000 until now. The course lost their greens and the conditions needed much improvement which required a huge investment in dollars and hard work. The course did that by having their greens redone along with improvements in the rough, fairways, and areas around the club house. I can tell you that what the staff has done is unbelievable! This course is top notch now. If you have a problem of paying their normal green fees of $32 on the weekdays and $42 on the weekends then go play somewhere else that has crappy conditions. This place has improved so much that the increase in green fees is well justified. The course is still completing other minor improvements which will only make this the course to play in Columbia. Hats off to the guys that work maintenance and to Greg McBride who has put his sweat and tears into this course that means so much to him! I highly recommend this golf course once again. Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.
The Spur is back.
Enjoyed the Spur at Northwoods today. They just reopened after redoing their greens. It’s in best shape now that I have ever seen it. Great round for the Golf Now deal my foursome booked. Tough course for seniors .
A Pete Dye Gem
I loved this layout tees greens and fairways in great condition was excellent value for money only negative was some of the bunkers need some work
