    My first time back at Springfield in a while. I'm doing some scouting before updating my Charlotte Agenda Top 10 article in a few weeks. A quick COVID-19 update - I was able to pay over the phone so I just had to verbally check in at the pro shop, no touch required. The cups have all been turned upside down which makes them shallower and easier to pick out your ball without touching the flagstick. I was paired up with another group but allowed to have my own cart. There were no bunker rakes. As for the course itself, it was cart path only - though there were only a few spots on the whole course that were still wet. The greens were solid not spectacular -- quick, but not super smooth. It felt like the grain took over on shorter putts. Still good, but just not super nice like they will hopefully be soon. The fairways on the front 9 were a bit sparse with lots of poa annua patches. Oddly, the back 9 fairways were much greener and lush. The layout does feature some blind shots so hopefully you have a GPS or a veteran playing partner. Some of the tee shots are target golf plays rather than grip and rip. Lots of elevation changes and dropoffs. The course meanders through a very wooded neighborhood and there are a few small ponds and streams that come into play. Overall, it's a good test of golf.
