Old Reliable - Wallinwood Springs

Most of the reviews likely focus on the Jekyll and Hyde aspect of their two nine hole layouts here but we walked the 1st 9 this morning so I'll only comment on the tamer of those 2 characters.
It's a good test and once you've played it once you can really attack it and try to score a number. 41 today was best of the year and I left my driver in the car on purpose. It's not a long course and if you can get off the tee 200 yards or 225 you are AOK to still score. Don't need the driver so was my 1st round likely ever I tried to hit hybrids and long irons off the tee. Didn't lose a ball and scored well, used a few more clubs than I would normally as well.
The par 3 3rd and par 4 9th are my favs here on this route. 3 is along par3 w/ bunker protecting and roll up style shots and played 215 yards today. Awesome test. 9 is a dogleg left and a kidney bean shaped tight green and a great looking chute from the back tees on the tee shot.
It's such a pleasant walk, not too hilly and very close green to tee box walks. We were alone out there this morning and played in 1 hour and 40 minutes w/o any rushing around. Greens were in very good shape w/ how much play the 1st 9 has gotten due to flooding on the back earlier in the year. Greens were soft, green and not many pitch marks so someone is working hard out there to keep them looking good.

Course conditions

Clubhouse looked worn. Not what you would imagine it should look like. Grounds crew could spend a day around the exterior and spruce it up instead of weed walking around ponds. Staff was more than friendly. A+ . No mask but that didn't bother me. Front 9 in much better shape than the back. Doubt if ill be back anytime soon.

The Back 11

Although the day was hot and muggy, we were glad to get out and would recommend Wallinwood to others. The front 7 were relatively easy, straight forward and encouraging, but the back 11 were filled with very challenging water and woods hazards and a couple that were the result of course pitfalls like a green that was brown dirt and a couple holes where the water covered too much of the fairway and a couple where the geese left so many rectal emissions that it was nearly impossible to keep your balls from getting terdy! We were glad to be done, and yet strangely eager to play there again... and we will! Quite honestly,, some of the back holes were too much for my meager talents to handle.

Long and not maintained

All bunkers were a joke, cheap sand and not enough of it all filled with water. One green was dirt literally and the next fairway had a few patches of crabgrass in a dirt desert. Cups were in the same position for weeks it seemed because lips were beat up on every hole. 18 took over five hour because they packed us on and the course is very long for conditions. Hopefully they start taking care of this beautiful land before people like me play it and never return.

Bargain golf

Picked Wallingwood Springs in a last minute decision to play on the holiday weekend. Good price on Golf Now, but I still question the decision. Course has taken quite a hit with extremely wet spring and now hot summer. Back nine was not worth the play.
Would have been nice to have staff suggest playing front twice due to poor conditions on back.

Needs maintenance

After going around two fivesomes pace was good for our foursome. The course has been deteriorating for the past few years. The course has a great layout that isn't maintained with trees blocking the use of at least one of the back tees and the greens were bad with one having no grass. Even for the price I paid it is becoming not worth it to play there.

Nice course but needs some care.

Nice course but needs some care. Traps are horrible with stones and rocks and weeds in them and cart paths are rough along with overgrown Branches in the way of them. Also a couple fairways and a green by the river were destroyed by flooding I’m guessing

Back nine is brutal

Front nine is beautiful! We loved the course for the first 9 holes! When we got to 10 the “green” was basically sandy rocks not sure how you mess that up. 11 the rough was better taken care of than the fairway, fairway was spotty with mucky patches. Cup placement was difficult on the back nine for the most part being close to the fringe at points.

Goid round

Nice course… Nice price. The front nine is very open and forgiving but enjoyably laid out. The back nine definitely presents challenges, with a lot of water and tight fairways . Overall a great course and close to home which is a plus. We would definitely play here again.

Course declines every year

I’ve played this course off & in for over 25 years. It breaks my heart to see this course, the clubhouse & the staff friendliness decline year after year.

I only paid $25 via GolfNow, but even that was too much to pay for this course. Was once a great track, with great conditioning. Nowadays, I refuse to even hit a shot out of their bunkers for fear of ruining a club on the MANY very large rocks in the sand. The growth around the lakes takes away from the beauty of these holes, so don’t understand why they don’t take the time to clean up the brush.

If this course was brought back up to a decent standard, I wouldn’t mind paying $30-$40. They’re letting dollars slip through their fingers by letting this course decline year after year. Back in the day, I played this course at least 10 times a year. I now play once every 2-3 years when I can’t find a tee time anywhere nearby.

Do not recommend this course.

Bring your shot making

At 6300 yards from the whites you better hit it long and straight. A couple easy holes and a lot of challenging ones. They are all fair but hazards lurk at most every turn. Considering the weather has sucked your ball still got a little bounce and roll. A few of the greens have dead fungus spots. The owner is friendly and helpful the other pro behind the counter never looked up when I walked in and cut through the pro shop to hit the bathroom. Fun challenging course, if you get to thinking your good come out and get humbled.

Course is in beautiful shape. Incredible drainage for being build on several lakes and along side the river. Course, food and beverage prices are spot on or even under what you would expect.
