Good value, fun public course

Very nice and fun old school layout. Through the green it’s kind of dried out, which is good because you can really get some roll. Greens are in excellent shape and well cared for. Good value here! Much more fun to play than SJ Muni for me.

First Time Playing

Great Course!

First time playing this course with my brother got matched with a 2 sum had a great time! Course is in great shape definitely recommend this course for any player level.

One of the downsides is you cannot bring outside alcoholic beverages and they check your coolers. They do sell beers, snacks, and mini bottle of wines at the check in area and at the turn.

Spring Valley is in great shape!

I’ve been playing this course for years and conditions are darn near always very good... right now they are EXCELLENT! I’m not kidding I’d put these greens up against any in the Bay Area, public or private. Fairways are fantastic also. It’s a great time to play there.

Pace of play

SLOW... played in a twosome behind a threesome. Waited at least 5-10 minutes on #’2, 3, 4. Waited 15 minutes on 9. Seemed to pick up a little around 13. 5 1/2 hour round. Greens were being sanded, but they gave a discounted rate which was nice.

Love this course and their staff!

Spring Valley is my 'go to' course whenever possible. I periodically catch a Golf Now special, like I did this time, and that makes it even better. The course is in great shape. The setting is tranquil. The staff are kind and helpful. The restaurant food is terrific too! I highly recommend Spring Valley Golf Course.

Course is ok

I like the course but man they stack tee times like crazy !!! And the price point for the course especially on weekends I feel you can play a far better course for the price
But please don’t miss understand it is a cool track just wish pricing was better and that they didn’t stack tee times on top of each other

Slow Play

Hole 2 there was a backup of about 20 minutes. By hole 5 it was smooth sailing till hole 9. Backup of about 10 minutes at the 9th. Rest of the day it was fine.
