Spring Hollow Golf Course
Excellent Condition, Yardages Off on a Few Holes
I think Spring Hollow is a fine course. Hilly, challenging, fun to play. My only beef was that the yardages were a bit off on some holes. Take for instance the 2nd hole, which is marked as 376 yards. I hit a driver into the hill, my app measured it at 212 yards, within 70 yards. The GPS app correctly reported 276. We didn't see the score card, but online score cards report it as being in the 6000 yard range, but it probably plays a bit shorter than that. But it doesn't detract from the fact that it was in perfect condition, with maybe less than a handful of brown patches of grass, and it's hilly and challenging, and the pace was great.
The 18th hole is a signature hole. Sitting up there with the pin in the front, and 142 yards on the GPS to the front of the green, with water just a few yards shy, it was a gutsy move when my friend and I both chose the club to barely get us there. But we were both inside 20 feet.

This course has potential.
Good course with a lot of interesting and challenging hole layouts but I have never experienced worse greens. Some of the greens were so hard and dry, that the soil under had visible cracks running through it. How can you judge a "crack" in the green to putt?! Besides greens that were like concrete, the fairways were the same but atleast it gives you the chance to run your tee-shot. If your going to charge a country club fee, please provide somewhat of country club like conditions. 46$ on a weekday for those conditions is ridiculous when there are many other courses in the area that are cheaper and maintained extremely well. I will be back in a few weeks for a prepaid golf tournament, I hope these conditions will be improved by then.

Ridiculously under watered greens
The Bad: The course is short. Does not play remotely close to the yardage's listed on the scorecard. The greens on the front side are borderline unfair. They were dry as a bone and very bumpy. The sand was dirt.
3/18 greens held shots. 9, 17 &18
The Good: The prices were very reasonable. Water was a buck. Green fees were fair for what you get. There are a few nice holes scattered amongst the lot.
The superb: The restaurant/grill..

Decent cheap course
Spring Hollow is a decent public track if you want to get in an easy, cheap round. Very hilly so you get a lot of funky lies. A little gimmicky but a fun course to play.

good for short hitters
course plays shorter than yardage.front nine is like a trick shot course with blind shots off the tee and doglegs you are unable to see. par 3 green is so unfair you could 10 put from 6feet. back is more visible but very easy.

Conditions were excellent.
Fairways and greens were excellent and the rough was moderate. Greens were unusually fast and a little hard. Elevation changes on the back make this course.

nice to play after a soaking rain. Good drainage and the greens will hold better.
