Nice Atlanta course

Beautful day to play.. course overall was in very good shape. Greens were ok, not too fast or too pocked up. Carts were excellent. Starter was not doing a very good job keeping order or time and seemed hard to find before our start. Overall nice course and very pleasant day of golf.

Needs sprinklers for course

The course was ok during rainy days but since there hasn’t been any rain it is not in good condition. Several tee boxes has no grass just dirt. Several fairways need water. I guess with COVID the carts are being heavily used but they need recharging periodically since I had to return carts twice for running out of power.

Gotta Care More

When I got there at 7:45 AM the guy in the pro shop was fast asleep with his head on the counter. I had to say excuse me three times before he woke up. My cart had not been cleaned. There was even garbage in it. Luckily I had something to sanitize it myself. The cart then ran out of power by the 9th hole, so I switched carts and the new one did not have a monitor, or sand to fill divots, and the brake didn't work well. The course itself was O.K., although the tee areas were awful - truly, truly awful. Some were so hard that you had to push really hard to get a tee in the ground. The bathrooms on the course were locked too. The cups were not elevated, so you had to reach in to retrieve your ball, which with COVID, was not a good thing. I santized my hands and ball on every hole with my own sanitizer. It seems like management does not take much pride in the course. Too bad. It could be a nice course under the right management. I won't be returning.

Good Times

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Lake Spivey. The course was in excellent condition. The layout was challenging but the holes were gettable. I am eager to play here again on my next visit to Jonesboro.

Good course that will challenge your short game

Second time playing this course and the first since the new owners/management. The first time I had an issue with pace of play and this time was much better even though the starter warned me as a single I would be waiting a lot. Was pleased to get a play through on 11 after waiting on a five some on 9 and 10. Fellow golfers were friendly and the staff as well. The course is beautiful. However, on the back nine the sand traps were basically mud . The greens are awkwardly soft for this time of year and are unpredictable but that added to the challenge. Your approach shot is key with these other greens . Overall great experience and I will be back but as other reviews and previous experience has proved you may have to deal with pace of play issues.

Nice course.

I enjoy playing this course. Some of the holes are challenging, but that's probably more of an operator error! Keep it in the fairway and don't leave putts short; you'll have a fun time!

Avoid on Weekends

Unfortunately, we didn't get to play since the starting tee had 4 groups of 4 waiting to tee off and we figured it would be an hour before we could start. This mainly happened because there was no starter to regulate when groups were allowed to tee off. We were told afterwards that there are tournament groups throughout the day every weekend. They were the ones causing the jam at the start as they jump in front of people with scheduled tee times. Our tee time was 11:50 and we arrived around 11:15 but already the course was so busy that we didn't get a cart until very close to our tee time. Meanwhile, there were several groups (assuming for the tournament) with carts sitting at the practice green.

I've played this course before and it's usually a decent place to play. It's currently priced higher than previous years which is okay considering the demand but the intentional overcrowding of the course is a good reason to avoid. I'll definitely be staying away from this place this summer after reading some of the other reviews about the pace of play and the conditions.

Greens are pretty rough

Could have been cause we went out a day after it rained, but some of the greens were nearly unplayable. Large patches of sand and dirt on some of them, slow, and apparently no one fixes their divots here. Tee boxes were also very rough. Fairways were fine and it’s a very fun layout but just needs better maintenance and this could be a 4 star course.

Hidden Gem

Once you arrive at the first hole you realize why the slope on this course is what it is. I’ve shot 10 over both times here. Very challenging.
Gotten straight
