"Great course"

5/15/22: Review by Brandon S.

Only my 2nd round at this course, but both times I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the condition the course is in. Fairways in great shape and the greens rolled true. Tee boxes are the only thing that need some love as they look to have had a lot of play. Fun/attackable...

Springfield – Walking the course??

      Hello there golf peeps.
      Have any of you ever walked Springfield? I see people walking it from time to time, but it definitely seems like it is not the most walking friendly course, but hopefully I am wrong.
      Thoughts?

      Not walking friendly. Actually, just not friendly – greens very nonrecptive with the angles required for many shots. If you play it all the time, you probably could figure out the angles of the fairways and greens, but to play occasionally, very difficult.

      DrSchteeve,

      I have not played there since they redid their greens with this miniverde stuff. I played at Waterford, and their miniverde greens are trampolines. I hit wedges with Nike One Tour balls that my 2 year old could probably rip back they spin so much, and the ball released forward there..it was crazy.
      I really hope Springfield’s greens are not this hard and bouncy. Makes me realize how much I really enjoy Bent Grass. I guess Tega Cay and Ballantyne went with this grass too. Surely, Ballantyne has them set up differently than Waterford, and hopefully Springfield too, being that they charge 65 bucks on Saturday.

      My understanding of new greens is that they take a few years to soften and become receptive. Hopefully that will happen with Springfield. Don’t get me wrong – for putting, the greens were great. But for receiving shots, not so much, and the layout of the course is such that you need either receptive greens (nope) or you have to play perfect shot angles into just the right spots on the greens or you are bouncing off into bunkers or rough, especially hard from some of the distances – 9 irons should have a chance, but not hybrids. Again, for the frequent players, this might be fun and challenging, but for someone who doesn’t have a lot of experience with the course, quite frustrating. Plus, right now, they are at the high end of the public play cost range.

      seems they are trying to pass on the cost of the new greens to the customers by increasing the greens fees which are way too high
