Landings At Spirit Golf Club
If you like challenging greens this course is made for you. The condition of the tee boxes, fairways, and greens were very good but ...
The greens were very fast. That coupled with the hole locations made it a true challenge to get the ball into the cup within 2 putts. Although I am not a great putter, the large majority of putts were 3. This was the first time we had played this course and we were playing with someone who played the course regularly. He indicated that he had never experienced such difficult hole placements. Maybe it was just an off day for the person who determined hole locations as all seemed to at the peak of a ridge on every hole.

Interesting layout with fast greens
Spirit was a fine course to play at. I got to the course after work and found that a high school team was almost done so I assumed that I would be able to finish 18 with no problem. When I went in the clubhouse to pay, instead of being greeted, I was immediately told that I had to be done by a certain time, somewhat souring my experience from the onset. When I started playing (1 person riding), I flew through the first 5 holes but was immediately halted on 6 and the waiting game started. I ended up finishing 18, but just barely because they turned the sprinklers on while I was on the 18th green. Overall an enjoyable experience.
