Spencer T Olin
Beautiful course and layout.
I wasn’t ready for the speed and slope of greens, but I look forward to the change again.
A must play if in the area
Great course, except.....
Great course. Greens are nice and the fairways are well manicured. The only down side was the pace of play. Had a group of 4 not including the child, taking 15-20 minutes per swing. We decided to play through (hole 11) and things got intense. Oh, might I add, this is America... land of the free... As we’re on the next hole in front of this group, the alpha male of the group decides to approach us as I was about to destroy this ball. The man proceeds to confront us and then knocks our balls off our tees and tells us we cannot play through. Now keep this is mind... we’re 26 years old (fit) and he’s roughly, 50? (Unfit) Not today pal. Since this man clearly owns this course, we’re not having it. We continue playing, wishing this old man would come back, but does not. End of story.
Nice course. Well kept. Bar staff needs help. Pro shop is solid and fairly priced. Overall B+
Seeing Arnies name always cool.
ALWAYS A FUN LAYOUT
They were running 15 minutes behind due to a corporate outing so the clubhouse guy flipped me a couple tokens for range balls. Teed off at 4:30 and never saw any other golfers except for 2 longhitters on the 2nd hole that we let play thru. The number of people that don't fix their ball marks on greens has gotten ridiculous. Not just at public courses, freaking annoying.
Great Conditions - Super Fast Greens
Spencer T. Olin has the best and fastest greens in the area.
Overall, the conditioning of the course was superb. Only issue I saw was where some standing water had been in the fairway, you will see some brown spots and weeds. For the price of under $40 (seniors) on the weekend, no one beats this value with the layout and conditioning of this course.
Beat up greens, but great course layout!
Coming from a st louisan driving 45 minutes to get to the course...
Pros: The course layout is one of the best around, which is why I’m willing to make the haul.
Cons: Im an early morning player and the greens were littered with unrepaired divots and debris. Despite the commute, if I’m paying north of $50 anywhere, I certainly do not expect greens to be littered with unrepaired divots and debris.
Fun course to play
Pace of play was great! Course is in great shape.
Normally worth the drive.
Today was just an off day due to something happening early in the day.
Hot Friday July 5th with a stacked tee sheet = 5:05 hour round.
I will give them a mulligan.
Pace of play is usually very good.
Course is in great shape.
People need to be reminded to repair their ball marks and be more respectful of the course.
Good customer service
The course was in great shape considering all the bad weather we have had...
HAD TO TAKE A COUPLE YEARS OFF DUE TO INJURIES AND FORGOT HOW FLAWLESS SPENCER T IS. FROM TEE BOX TO GREEN THE COURSE WAS IN GREAT SHAPE. I EVEN SHOT AN 82 WHICH FOR ME IS A GREAT ROUND. PACE OF PLAY WAS GOOD AND OVERALL IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE. I WILL DEFINATELY BE GOING BACK.
The course was in good shape. The greens were smooth and fast. Some greens do have some small brown sections but it does not affect your play on the greens. The fairways were fine with only some bad spots where the excessive runoff of the rainfall (that every course is experiencing) has occurred.
My only criticism was the pace of play. Waited on every hole with an early 7:00 tee time. Also, with the recent flooding, the gnats are really bad. Bring some bug spray.
The greens are always nice here, even though the crazy amount of rain has made it harder to keep some of the fairways to their usual good condition. Still, pretty good overall. Good amenities like driving range with real grass, good selection in the snack bar, and cart girl was around several times. The bugs/gnats are HORRIBLE but there isn't much they can do about that I suppose. My only real complaint is the pace of play. Never saw a marshall once, which is probably why it took almost 5 hours to play. Please have the marshalls move slow pokes along! Or have them skip a hole. Really need to enforce this!!! It's fine to be bad, but be bad quickly.
