Used to be a fantastic course at a great value. Now it’s a garbage course at LUDICROUS rates and NO value. Lower the greens fees until this is all straightened out. Winter-kill is a bad excuse; many courses don’t have these issues.

Obviously there are very serious management issues going on when Renaissance has better greens than Springfield and they charge 30 vs. 60. JOKE!!

Response from Springfield Golf Club on 05/24/2018:

We're sorry to hear about your experience. We have closed the course as of last week until Saturday, 5/24. At that point, the front 9 will remain closed to revive the greens, while the back 9 will have two temporary greens. We're very hard at work to return our conditions to their normal, beautiful state.

Greens in bad shape as they seemed to have lost many to disease. But some tee boxes were also rough and that seemed like poor management of the course. Very nice people who were apologetic about the conditions.

I played Saturday May 5th. I was really looking forward to this round as I had heard great things. The practice facility was very nice, putting green was perfect, but about half of the greens were completely burned out and diseased. No one on the course ever mentioned it, not anyone in the pro shop or the starter. And I don't believe a golf course should be charging $60 for such poor conditions on half of the greens. And I mean not even playable they were so bad.

I want to give the course another shot...but I'm very hesitant to spend another $65 for it.

I play here quite often and was very surprised by the condition of the greens. The affected areas are unplayable. I have not seen it this bad in 8 years. I understand the cold weather and the rain affected the bermuda grass and they are working on getting the greens back in shape, but charging $60-$70 is not right. (We only paid $29 from a Hot Deal). Some of the tee boxes could use help. Most of the fairways are in good shape. I really like the course and enjoy the layout and hope the course comes back to how it usually is.

Usually love this course, one of the top rated public course in the area. BUT not now! Little disappointed how they are charging $50 for a round with such a condition. Courses even give you special rates for aerification and this is worse than aerificated green! They give you $5 discount which it's still $50. Not sure how long this will last but definitely avoiding this course for awhile.

This course is USUALLY in great shape but they are having some serious problems on several of their greens. I understand this can happen especially this time of the year. However, the course should consider this when setting pricing. Anything over $50 is too high for this course right now. Just sayin...

I took my friend for her very first time onto a real golf course.

I drove her around so she could see what a legitimate course looks like and watch some people play.

Although they tried for us (really for her), nobody was able to sink a hole in one.

We didn't actually play but she got the idea and quickly fell in love with golf.

Springfield is very hilly and challenging so I do not recommend it for beginners.

Fort Mill (which was totally booked) is flat, much easier & female friendly.

We still had a ton of fun as the staff and other golfers were extra friendly and very courteous.

Thank you Springfield

The course overall is good for spring not really here yet. With that being said, the greens are not good right now. The green are very bumpy, some look matted down and almost crusty looking. Hopefully with some good weather the greens will improve, I enjoy Springfield it's a good test.

I’m not sure why but he greens were in terrible shape. They were painted and dry as a bone in a lot of spots. I was so frustrated that I quit after 9 and got a rain check. It was almost worse than playing on punched greens.
