Springvale Golf Club
Course itself was rather flat and unimaginative on the front nine, with the back nine being a bit more scenic.
Tee boxes and greens in good shape, but fairways a bit rough. Gas golf carts (electrics are quieter and not so smelly). Cart paths are in rough shape with lots of pot holes. Front nine was boring, but back nine was a bit more interesting. Course plays fairly fast.

Great Fall golf!
Course was well maintained, starters friendly, club house staff friendly. Great value for 18 with cart. Pace of play right at 4 1/2 hours.

Course is in very good shape and staff is super friendly. Great hot dogs too by the way.

good deal, but not great
To begin, I paid under $15 for 18 holes with a cart, that is a good deal on any course.
But the course was being aerated (front the day before and the back as I played), and the back was closed. That bothered me, since other courses post on GolfNow that aeration has recently happened, and I didn't play other courses because of that. Then to have to play the same nine twice on a course you have never played before is always a little discouraging (it would have been nice to know that going into the round, since other courses let you know).
Other than that, the course is flat and some what short but in good condition. I didn't have any bad lies in the fairway or rough. Seems like there is some drainage issues around the course. Basic yardage markers in the fairway (blue, white, and red stakes) and spray painted grass next to tee boxes for the par threes (this is just looks cheap, find a brick or a rock and use a stencil).
Like other reviews have said, good for juniors, seniors, and women, but not for advanced players.
**I only said not to recommend, because half the course was closed and just aerated. I didn't book a tee time other courses trying to avoid the same problem. The course needs to use the technology better, or else customers with be disappointed.

Decent Muni Course
A fairly easy Muni course. Excellent for beginners & high handicap players. Decently maintained. Not recommended for the better golfer. Also, a good course to play w/ a spouse or child.

Fun course to play for the senior and average golfer.
Congrats to the starter. He got us out ahead of a group of 12 that would've turned a 4 hr round into 5-5 1/2 hr round. The course had double booked the time. 1st green was long and slow but the rest were good. Some of the greens looked like a teenager with acne - poorly repaired or no repair to ball marks. This is getting to be a problem at most courses. Maintenance could be better but some of this was due to the rains of earlier in the summer. The course is close and convenient.
