Nice fast greens. Decent course for a municipal course. Pase of play was much better this time.
R tee time was around 10am...had to wait on the group in front of us (5ppl in group)....Course should not allow fivesomes before 12N.
Best thing in Spanaway?
I dont' spend a lot of time in the Spanaway area, but after playing Lake Spanaway that might change a bit.
Played there for the first time on a weekday and while there were a good number of golfers, it wasn't packed and the pace of play was excellent. Walking we got around in 4 hours.
I really enjoyed the layout, there are a couple really pretty holes and a couple par 4's that are quite a challenge. I enjoyed ending the round with a blind tee shot that I wish I would have hit better than I did.
The greens were in very good shape, but I struggled with both speed and the read, but I am finding that with all the greens in the area after a couple of decades golfing in Arizona. Simply put, it was my fault that I putted poorly, not the courses.
I like that they keep the under brush at a minimum, an errant tee shot can be found, trust me, I know first hand. If I had one criticism I would like to see a little more water on the course and the water that is there was really stagnant looking. I believe that there are fountains in some of them but none of them were turned on when we played.
I will definitely be back, it was a great price for a very walkable course that offers both straightforward and challenging holes.
Lake Spanaway - Hardpan Course
I had a discount coupon which made it worth it. Otherwise I would play there. Very Doable but lots of hardpan. Balls keep on rolling, and rolling, and rolling. This would be okay if they were rolling down the fairway, but no - the hardpan is on the sides of the fairway so balls roll right on thru to the ajoining fairways.
