Great County Course

A very well maintained course course that provides a good mix of challenges and holes to score on. Greens were in great shape even though this course gets a ton of play. We played on a Friday in the morning and we were really stacked up. Outstanding value for the money. 15 is a short little par that provides target practice. I liked it.

Up north feel

Have played this course for several years. Greens and tees are always in good condition. Front 9 is open and back 9 is tighter. Very scenic. Play can be a bit slow on a busy weekend. Staff is friendly, beverage cart comes around often. Would be happy to golf there very week.

I have played 52 different courses this year & found Springfield Oaks one of the best maintained courses I have played. Even with all of the leaves ( we played 11-3-2015 ) even the first cut grass was NOT covered with leaves. The course superintendent should be praised for keeping the course playable & fun.

Love this course.

I grew up playing here as a kid, and have always loved this course. Hard to believe it's been nearly 40 years, Course has always been very good. Great job on reworking the bunkers from many years ago. The only thing I miss is #3 as the risk-reward short par 5 it used to be with the wicked green. Loved that hole. Don't care for it as the par 4 it's been for years, but I still love the course. Also miss the willow on #6 fairway. But the bunker there is an excellent substitute. That was well done. The Metropark system has done a super job caring for this course through the years. My hats off to them, and the grounds crew for their work.

Decent County Golf Course

This is a course that will challenge you more on the back nine holes than the front nine holes. It was a slow day on the track, but what do you really expect for a weekend round?!

Great Value. Pick your time wisely.

Springfield Oaks is a great metro parks course with a mix of narrow wooded holes and shorter "placement golf" holes. GN always has great deals available for this course and it is worth checking out. Beware playing before 1pm though, they must have a great senior rate because the course was stacked with retirees. Pace can be very slow.

Worth the drive

Great course. Awesome elevation changes. Greens are medium fast with plenty of slope. Back nine is tight, but does allow some misses without losing your golf ball. If you walk, it's a heck of a workout!!! Definitely recommend playing!

kudos to the oakland parks

very well maintained, clean, moderately easy course. The greens are a challenge, however. Would highly recommend. Staff were friendly and overall a very enjoyable round.

Great Course

Great greens that rolled fast and true. This course doesn't play very long, but still provides a fun day of golf for all skill levels. This course is definitely worthwhile especially with a "golfnow hotdeal".

Fantastic deal

It looked like rain, I guess that's why we got such a unbelievable deal. $10 + service charge even surprised the pro shop person. It is a very pretty course, some challenging tee shots force you to think. Conditions were very good. It did rain, so we paused for just a moment, but it cleared and we finished our round with no problem. I hope to go back soon if I can get a similar deal. This is what retirement is all about!!

Springfield Oaks

Nice Oakland County course! Course is in good shape and seems to have survived the winter well. New irrigation system has been installed recently throughout the course. Greens are in good condition on most holes. Short course in distance, but narrow challenging fairways, especially when playing the back nine! Lots of seniors play this course, including myself! Green fees are reasonable. However, I wish they had a reward system for frequent play, like the metro parks in the area. When you add a friendly staff and new concession management, this course is one of my favorites.
