Pace was better today.

For some reason we were able to finish in 4.5 hours today, which was not too bad.
My hope is that the folks will continue to support Golf Now and offer specials as I was able to take advantage of today.

Spanaway Lake Spring

Even though there has been a lot of rain, the fairways and green were quite firm. Chemicals had been applied to the greens, and we all ended up with blue stains on our hands. Overall I like this course. Not too much water or hazards that cause lost balls.

Considering conditions the course played well.

Wednesday’s are ladies day, so play was really slow. Five hours for the round. The course was in good shape considering how much rain we’ve had.
The staff was very nice, and the cart lady was outstanding.

Golfing in March

We had a 9:30 tee time, 38degrees. 11 and it was 55, 1:00 72.degrees. On our front nine it was really slow. Women's league was playing with lots of players. They weren't slow, just a lot of people, waited at each tee off. But, on the back 9 no waiting And gorgeous day! We will come back!

The course was in great shape for this time of year except that the greens were bumpy with ball marks and other bumps.

Winter course

Was looking for another dry course in the area and this is it! With all the rain we've had this past couple of months the course is firm and in great shape!

Great Course Poor Staff

Golf course was in great condition for November! Only complaint would be if you pay for a beer and they try to give it to you half filled with foam you shouldn’t receive an attitude for telling them to re pour or you don’t want it! Learn to pour a beer out of a tap... tilt cup then pour, straighten as you fill!

Good pace of play

Pace of play was good for a Saturday 11:30 tee time. Food and drink service was excellent. The one negative was we had to wait to get a cart.
