It's mid May and you'd expect the greens to be ready. They were all brown except 1 hole. They need to make a little more effort to maintain this course. We went to other courses before today and they were ready.

The Course was in rough shape, the greens were patchy and the fairways were brown. If your a skilled golfer it can be frustrating when your putts are bouncing all over the place. Would not go back until the greens a fairways are better.

This course has been improving a little every season but still has a way to go before it can compete head on with most of the courses in the area. The greens are in the best shape I have seen but many of the fairways and tee boxes are in need of attention. The back nine is the better of the two nines. It is a challenging track that has never quite reached its potential. Even with a GolfNow deal there is better value for money elsewhere in the area. I do applaud the new ownership for their continued work on the course.

I've been playing Edmonton Springs since it was 9 holes but have gone away from playing it regularly the past years as it was always poorly maintained. I loved the layout but hated the conditions.<br/> Not so this year.<br/> Ponds and creeks have been trimmed. Tee boxes are still small and uneven but are fuller and cut short. Fairways were cut low and green for the first time in years - #1,2 and 3 are still patchy but the rest are very, very good.. The rough is lower and looks awesome with the stripe pattern they're using. As for the greens - I have never seen them this good. They are consistent and lush but fairly quick too.<br/> It's obvious somebody is finally giving the course the attention it deserves. In my mind, #15 is one of the best par 5s in all of Edmonton. For the past couple years, you could barely see the green it had become so grown in, the tees were dead and the fairway was like pavement. It's a beauty again.<br/> Pace of play was a little slow but I played on a discount day.<br/> They also paved the parking lot. It's rough but it is paved.<br/> If I could suggest one change, it would be to switch the nines. The first three holes are the only bad fairways and those holes are far too difficult for the average/beginner golfer. People would come away with a much better feeling about the place if those holes were in the middle of their round rather than the start. It would help the pace of play, too.<br/> Anyways, I've always wanted this course to succeed, it really is a good design. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the improvements continue.<br/> I'll be playing the Springs on a regular basis again.

Played from the blues and found some of the fairway views narrow, many of the fairways were brown, lots of water, first time playing this course. Close to the city.Now I know where the hidden water is I would definitely play it again. Not a beginners course.

Tough track with plenty of water and trees. I'm play here 5 or 6 times a year off the back tees and course, especially the greens, is in much better shape than previous years. Some of the tee boxes could do with some work to flatten them out, but they are ok. Clubhouse is a little basic. If you are a better and bogey golfer that doesn't want to pay $70 to $100+ for a challenging (good) course, then this is course is for you.

We made the mistake of playing on a Sunday and booked through golfnow. They didn't have Internet access so they had no idea who was and wasn't booked. We had to wait 15 minutes for a cart to be returned so we could start. The front nine took 3 hours. The tee boxes were in horrible shape and it was hard to find a flat one where you weren't standing in a sod crack. There was no Marshall to move things along and there was a golf cart sitting in one of the ponds. This course has really gone downhill while the prices have gone up. We will not be going back.

some tight driving holes & knowing your yardages is important on some holes as well, pace of play was a little slow but for the value from GolfNow, I played 18 & got a cart for the price of a couple large range buckets, great place to work on your game.

Fairway is not well keep, bunkers has weeds and goose dropping. All greens were arrated so putting is near impossible on our day of play. Hopefully situation will improve in a month's time.

Was out this past Sunday and it was very enjoyable for this round. The past 3 times that we played out there we had to wait everytime to get on the tee box from anywhere to 10-12mins. Playing 18 holes with a cart should not be taking up to 5-5 1/2 hours to play and there should have been a Marshall out there! Other than we I love playing out there dispite the 1/2 hour drive.<br/> Thanks

Greens were not quite bad enough to be called poor condition. Weekends fill up and pace of play is slow. The staff are too young and too few and their are not enough power carts so you usually need to wait as they come available. Price is fair or maybe a few dollars high for the value. All in all not a bad course but spacing out the tee times by another 2 minutes would make it better.
