Spring Valley Golf Course
Spring Valley Golf Course is a public, 18-hole course that features a rolling, hilly terrain with stately Cottonwood trees that are over 75 years old sprinkled throughout. Designed by Ross Graves, the golf course took over three years to construct, which is understandable considering its elevation of 6400 feet and its hilly terrain. The course is 7,180 yards from its championship tees with a par of 72. Golfers will have to employ their short game for this course. Spring Valley Golf Course's signature hole is the 17th, which is a par-3 that requires a tee shot not only through trees but also over a creek that winds through the course. There is also plenty of wildlife, including rabbits, deer, and antelope, for those who enjoy animals.

Nice layout but very dry
Like this course because it's reasonably priced and somewhat challenging. Today it was VERY dry, many many brown areas on the fairways. The greens were in excellent shape though, approach shots were leaving ball marks so that was good. Staff was pleasant as always, no on course beverage service today, make sure to take your own water.
No amenities on a Saturday???
It’s 95 degrees outside on a Saturday, course is busy, and no beverage cart beyond 3pm....you have to be kidding! This is the busiest golf day of the week! It’s no wonder this course is struggling. Wake -up and run it like a business and you would make money! Also horrible pace of play. 5 1/2 hours to play a round...No Marshall’s at all! We have people who never played golf learning on a course on a Saturday...go to the driving range or par3. You don’t learn on a traditional course...6 strokes just to get off the tee box....really?
Good value course
Good course, and very playable. Some fairways had muddy/standing water, and greens needing repair- some back 9 greens have bare spots which are impossible to putt through. Exiting cart path onto fairway is very bumpy/muddy and need to be cleaned up. Practice facilities are in good condition. Roughs are cut well- greens are extremely soft.
Will be playing again soon.
Not bad for the price. Fairways were in good shape for the most part, but a handful of greens could really use some work. But this is one of the (slightly) cheaper courses in the area so you get what you pay for I guess. Drove out from Denver to check it out. Might come back. I did love the grass range, good sized putting green and a great chipping area. Grass ranges are hard to find near me. Wished I lived closer just for the practice areas.
Good day, really nice to have onsite dining
We play Spring Valley to get a fun round in at a course with a relaxing setting and a chance to see some wildlife. We were not disappointed. The range was open, nice. The check-in was seamless. We played as 4 walkers, since the course is quite walkable if you like to walk. The conditions were pretty good, although some of the greens seem to be a bit irregular, but it wasn't bad enough to keep my wife from going birdie-birdie on 2 #6 & 7. One buddy had never played before and remarked how nice a course it was. There were hawks, frogs, a muscrat swimming in a creek, big carp, and other birds. We were surprised and delighted to be able to enjoy a tasty meal onsite on the patio afterwards with a cold beverage or two to cap off a really nice day out during this COVID-19 thing. Kudos to the staff!!
Could be great
This course has always been great to me. I played a lot this winter and spring, and the people have always been fantastic. It always felt like it just needed to green up a little bit to be really fantastic. Played today for my first time here in two months and it is in worse condition than it was in February. Greens and tee boxes were horrendous. Fairways were decent, but really had a lot of work. Not to mention everytime I play here the pace of play is not great
This was my second time playing Spring Valley and enjoyed it as much as my first round just last week. The course is in great shape and is playable for everyone, from beginner to low handicappers. The clubhouse and bar have a country club feel without be pretentious and the staff are amazing (HUGE shoutout to Mitchell in the pro shop for guiding me in when my GPS went haywire!). Also, if you are like me and appreciate an adult beverage after a rough double bogey, their beverage cart seemed to be available every other hole! Despite the inconvenient drive from Denver, I will 100% be returning to Spring Valley very soon!
Nice layout but needs to green up
We played nine holes a few weeks ago and were hoping it would have grown in better than what it has. There are still brown areas on the fairways and worse, some greens. Staff was great as always. They could have used a ranger on the course, the group in front of us was very slow. Our round took 4:45. Seemed longer after our last two rounds elsewhere were right at 4:00. They are giving out carts as they are available so if you don't have the option when booking, just call the course near your tee time and see what they have. Practice range is open.
It should not take 5 and half hours to play a round of golf!!! All we were told is that a group of older walkers is what is holding things up are you serious... manage the course better saw the marshal once.
Still a lot of winter damage
The course is starting to green up, but there is a lot of winter damage on the greens. Pretty disappointing they're charging full rates when the course isn't quite up to 'par'.
With the COVID-19 concerns, I'm grateful to play again and them allowing carts is a nice option.
I do wish the marshal that was patrolling the course would pay attention to slow play and not just social distancing. They need to understand when there are 3 groups on a Par-3 that people will congregate closer than they should. Always helpful and friendly staff in the pro shop and the bar's 'to go' area!! Pleasantly surprised to have a very attentive cart-person offering refreshments while wearing a mask!
Fun layout and good pace of play. A few of the greens need sometime to heal, but still pretty good conditions.
Great to be outdoors!
Nice course, very relaxed atmosphere. Course is just coming out so there are a few bald spots on the fairways. Greens are in good shape. The group in front of us was just out for a good time so their pace wasn't the best. Weather was perfect, sunny and not a hint of wind. This course is relatively flat so if you have to walk it's a good choice.
I understand there being issues during covid-19. Certain groups did not respect their proper tee time which caused backups on the back 9. Please tee off at your scheduled time and scheduled group to keep things moving especially in this time. We’re all thankful to get out on the course so please respect the course rules.
Course in Terrible Condition
I was vey disappointed with the conditions of the course after being closed for several weeks. I have played this course many times over the course of many years and I have never seen it in such bad shape. The fairways had very little grass and the tee boxes were very rough. The greens were very bad and had lots of sand covering all the worn out and non grassy areas. It wasn't even worth trying to putt on many of the greens. Since all the courses have opened back up, they are all in great shape except this one. I don't think anything was done to take care of the course during the closure and that is a shame because I have always enjoyed playing this course..
Spring Valley = hidden gem
Laid back casual course (very Colorado). Very friendly and professional staff. Although it’s a private course with public tee times, not once did I feel as though I was an outsider. The front 9 feels a little like a links/ plains course. Wide open but technical at the same time. The back 9 were more funky and absolutely beautiful. Totally different feel between the two. I can not wait to play here again. Wonderful course. Greens were in great shape. Some played faster than others which I enjoyed. I appreciated the challenge. Holes 16 and 17 were my favorite.
Very enjoyable round. Winter conditions exist. Don’t expect much green grass, but course is in good shape nonetheless. Nice staff. Good value. I will come back in late spring when this course gets a bit greener. Played super fast in three + hours. Two groups let us through, and we let a single blow by us. All good.
Fun as always
I have played this course quite a few times and I have always had fun and enjoyed the course as well as the company. Get out there and enjoy it and maybe find a new course to put in your rotation.
