GolfPass Thursday

It’s been over a year for me on this course and I wasn’t disappointed one bit, even the three singles that joined made the round better to play.

Wet, Slow Greens

Overall condition pretty good with wet patches throughout the fairways. However, greens were a bit wet,soggy and very slow.

Staff in the pro shop are very nice and friendly!

Wet, unmowed greens

I wouldn't play the course for a few weeks to let the greens come back.

The course is good

Can’t be flexible to play the back 9 holes. Basically everyone starts at hole 1, causing traffic and longer waiting time.

Fun Course - old favorite

OK Practice Facility with a driving range (low compression balls), chipping green, and large putting green.
At this time, the course had soft pan (like hitting out of fairway sand-traps) at many places in the fairway where the grass is cut so short that there is none, requires spot-on ball striking with irons, tougher for iron play, so bring your fairway wood type clubs. The greens were very recently punched, so not perfectly mowed, but still fairly true, just slow in some places. Some tee boxes are a little lumpy and not flat (maybe on purpose).
Still, it's a good challenge for our golfing skills, a great and fun course to play!!

Early Bird gets around in a hurry

We were the second group out this morning and had two very fast ladies in front of us, whom we never saw after the first hole.
We had a great round in 3.5 hours, outstanding.

Slow but good conditions

The greens were in good shape, the course played well, but the pace of play was slower than it should have been.

What a great muni.

Lake Spanaway Golf Course is a great asset to this community. The greens roll perfectly.
For a round to take five hours is ridiculous. There was a marshall out there so I don't know what the answer is.

Best bang friendly staff

The staff at the desk is great. Being recognized when you come back adds a personal touch! The app gives you very nice perks and the course is in decent shape.

Greens were in great shape

We had an early tee time and enjoyed a very pleasant round. No delays, nor did we create any...
