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.

Greens were in great shape

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

GREAT CONDITION

Took 30mins to check in, with one register open and long line.. so not being able to warm up before my round....really sucked

Course is in outstanding shape. Played in the afternoon after a tournament so the pin location was really tough.

Too wet, too slow

I must be a fair weather golfer, because the rain today was very uncomfortable for me.
I should have canceled the round, and did leave after 9 holes.

Early tee time

We had a 6:40 tee time and the course was quiet.
Obviously, we saw that it was getting busy, but we went at a great pace.
I hope that through Oof Now we’ll be able to get these tee times at a reasonable price, so we can play weekly.

A good time was had by all.

The course was crowded, at least the foursomes ahead of us played like it was.
Otherwise all went wel and the 19th hole was a looked forward too pleasure.

Almost perfect

The weather was perfect. The course was in great shape. The pace of play was held up by a foursome two groups ahead of us.
Unfortunately, the “marshal” rides around in his cart but doesn’t do anything I could figure out. We mentioned that there was a huge gap without players two groups ahead of us, but he smiled and rode on.....oh well!!

Good start slow finish

Great day for golf!!
We started off great. On the first nine we got through in good shape, but the back nine was tied up all the way around creating quite lengthy delays
