Springfield Golf Club


"Worth playing"

1/30/24: Review by Golfmusician

The course is in pretty good shape for the winter conditions. There was hardly anyone there because it was cart path only. HEADS UP! According to the pro shop, it will probably be cart path only through April.

Description

The Chester Golf Club is located in rural Chester County 6 miles west of I-77 off of exit 62, only minutes from Charlotte or Columbia. The course, which opened in 1971, was designed by Russell Breeden, and is known to many as a “hidden gem.” The TifEagle Ultradwarf Bermuda greens offer a smooth, but testing putting surface. The tree lined 419 Bermuda grass fairways further insure that golfers of all skill levels will have a challenging but fun round of golf. The signature hole, number 12, is a par 5 that requires two shots over water. The course is surrounded by forest land and an abundance of wildlife.

B-Man's Take

I haven't played here yet so the description is straight from the course website. This course is one of a foursome of courses owned by Leroy Springs & Co -- Springfield, Fort Mill and Lancaster being the other 3. It is a nice set of courses usually kept in good shape.

    "Great course"

    First time here in a couple of months and again was not disappointed. I really like the layout and the course conditions were good-great. Free bottled water in the pro shop and also in a cooler on the course which came in handy in very hot and humid conditions. Will definitely be back.

    "Below average"

    Due to the amount of rain lately, the course could best be described as soggy. First hole was extremely wet to the point of being almost unplayable. Greens were browned out and had not been dyed. Tee boxes were mostly sand with sparce grass. Course played longer than distances on the score card due to the wet conditions. I'll try it again when we have a week of dry weather.

    "Great course"

    Played here Saturday in a 2 man scramble event and the course was in very good shape. Greens were smooth and fast , fairways were plush, tee boxes and bunkers in good shape. The weather was perfect and I really like this layout just wish I had played better, oh well.

    "Great course"

    Had not played at Chester since they put in the new grass on the greens. They were really good. Fast and true. Ball rolled smooth. The course is beginning to green up. Fairways were dry and the ball rolled. Traps were full of sand and were raked. Overall the golfing experience, especially with the new greens was really very good. It is worth the time and money to make the drive down to see this course.

  • 04/01/20 - B-Man replied to "Coronavirus Updates for Charlotte Golf Courses"

    The hits are coming fast and furious now... all Leroy Springs golf courses have shut down effective today. That's Springfield, Fort Mill, Lancaster and Chester Golf Clubs.

    Statement from Leroy Springs:

    "Despite the precautions we have taken, many of our staff positions conduct transactions with the public which have been difficult to isolate. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to suspend operations at all four Springs Golf courses, effective the end of the day today (April 1, 2020). Maintenance operations will continue."

So I'm the new guy here. I've been doing a lot of research on the Charlotte area golf scene since I'll be moving there in the near future. I noticed the online booking for Eagle Chase GC matches what the rates use to be $48/$65/$72 (M-T/Fri/Weekend).
