Springfield is in very good condition. The fairways and rough are dormant but provide a very nice lie and, due to dry weather, a lot of extra roll. The greens are fantastic. They are firm and fast and roll true. This course layout grows on me every time even though it is pretty tough and scoring is difficult.
Something else that stood out to me today was that there were very few leaves in play. Normally this time of year you can lose balls that are in bounds due to fallen leaves. For whatever reason, the fallen leaves at Springfield are where they belong and we don’t, in the woods.
