Spring Hollow Golf Course
need nilly goat legs
lot of hillds..
many blind shots
grass was good..unfortunately too long in faitrway causing lost time trying to find a fairway shot...
course directional sighs on tee boxes very inaccurate
a couple more yardage markers would be great..
worse part..bar/grille closed to public for a graduation party... disappointing

When you get to the entrance.. keep driving
Booked a 7:08 tee time. Arrived before 7:00 to a nearly empty parking lot. Only person I saw was an man sitting outside drinking coffee. I asked if they were open yet because the pro shop was still dark. He responded "see for yourself".
As I enter the dark pro shop, the pro shop guy was at a table eating a breakfast sandwich. I approached the counter and stood there for about 2 minutes before the guy eating the sandwich finally got up, in disgust mind you, and said "You got a time?" After paying for my round, he litterally threw a cart key at me and said it's wide open.
After finding my way to the first tee, which took a little while since it was obviously too troublesome to point me in the right direction for the pro shop guy, I set off on my round. The course itself was in pretty good shape, greens were well groomed but extremely slow and peppered with unfixed ball marks. Very easy course with not a lot of trouble. Fairways were beat up with unfilled divots.
As I got to the 10th tee, after not seeing a soul on the front, there was a single in front of me hitting an approach. I play fast so I thought I may have caught up with him. I wait on the tee for about 10 minutes while he hits 3 shots from the same spot. Whatever, we've all been there. This goes on for the next 3 holes. I finally get to 13 which is a par 5. I see the guy in front of me sitting in the fairway waiting for another player that was on the green. Out of nowhere, the guy in front of me disappears into the trees on the right. Figuring he couldn't see the green clear from where his ball was, he was in the fairway. 10 minutes later he still hadn't come out, so I teed off. Never saw the guy again. Where he went, I have no idea. If you have to warm up, USE THE RANGE!!!! The rest of the round went without incident.
Needless to say, I will never be back.

Really Nice Course
Some recent reviews have said that the course conditions have gone downhill. There were some damage to one fairway caused by heavy rain but otherwise this course is in great shape. The greens are fast if you happen to be above the hole but they putt rather true. My playing partner and I had a bit of trouble on the front nine just getting used to the breaks and speed. However, we both played well and scored on the back nine. I shot 39 and he shot 41. We definitely recommend playing here and will return often.

Love this course, usually in really good condition but seems to be slipping a little. Some fairways were really bad, greens were ok.

Course is Just OK
The course was very well kept, however the greens are very short and fairways quite narrow. If you are looking for a course that you can grip and rip drivers down long fairways, this course is not for you. you will find yourself hitting irons off tee boxes to accommodate for 90° turns in fairways. Par 3s are very short. I hit a PW and a 56° off of two tee boxes.

Well it was a hot deal. The fairway on 10 was very poor, greens are always fast here. There was a foursome of women in front of us, so pace of play was a problem. It's a good course, needs some upkeep. Staff could be more friendly. I hope these issues get resolved

Course Needs Some Love
I just played here and my group was disappointed -- which was a real shame because this course is usually in decent shape but clearly something has gone miserably wrong. This course has some very nice holes and can be challenging. Very tough to walk!!!! High handicappers will struggle on a few of the holes. Several fairways have brown spots -- almost like they lost some of them last year and haven't recovered. The sand traps need work. Greens are okay but need rolled. Tee boxes are fair at best. By comparison, an average course 15 minutes west of there looked immaculate compared to Spring Hollow. Staff is friendly enough. Drinks at the bar are very expensive -- $7 - $11 for a shot is crazy!!!!

Played this course on april 21st. the fairways were on poor condition and the greens were in even worse shape. all of the carts at spring hollow do not have windshields and are in need of replacement. A lot of improvements need to be done to this course before I would come back
